“Burgers are a bomb, fries for the garbage can”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had cheesburgers and fries there in october 2012.
The burgers are fatty, salty and really loaded with cheese. Just how you want them to be when you're really hungry. You can choose from a variety of extras like olives, peppers and so on.
The staff was fun and helpful.
But the fries were a real let down. I read that they were award winning but they didn't taste at all. Most of them looked like cutting waste from real fries and were burned and dried out. The other ones were sticky.
So give me yummy fries and I'll give you the fifth star.

“Hamburger Redux”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Some of the best burgers available for the money. The fries rival those I have had in Ghent. Make your own with a surfeit of add-ons and condiments. The only fault is that they are so juicy that the bun wilts.

“Five Guys and UVA - they go together”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Five guys is one of those chain fast food places that amazingly maintains consistency in food quality, price and service no matter where you go. Charlottesville is not an exception. It is a bit more pricey than a McDonalds or Burger King, but the quality is also much better. Best deal on the menu are the Regular Fries - a meal unto themselves and definitely not like the fries at Mickey D's or BK.

“Typical Five Guys”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

As always the food is great and greasy! But good! It is not for anyone on a diet. But once in a while you have to dive in and enjoy yourself. These are some of the best burgers and fries anywhere. I was disappointed recently that they changed their menu. I normally order the burger and didn't realize that the burger now is a double burger. So go with the "little burger" if you want a single - tricky! The double has too much meat and it takes over the taste of the burger. The single is just right to enjoy all the flavor of the sandwich! The fries are really great, but it does worry me when I see all the oil soaking the bag afterward. Again, it is not for dieters or those worried about their cholesterol! But it is good!
