“Delicious burger when you want comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Not the best idea if you're on a diet, but if you want to take a break from your diet, then you're in for a treat. Aroma hits you from the moment you step foot inside. Very casual atmosphere.

Ask for updates, such as I requested less salt in the fries and they were very accommodating. No shakes, but other drinks are available. Much pricier than McDonald's, but the burgers are much better! Burgers are on par with Red Robin, probably cheaper. Very fresh tasting selections. Lots of choices.

Help yourself to the free shelled peanuts while you wait for your order.

“What a Disappointment!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

This place is famous elsewhere and has won awards, but Kidd Valley and Burgermaster are both better AND cheaper. The white bread buns fell apart three bites into an otherwise good cheeseburger, and the fries were ALMOST as good as Wendy's but not as hot (!). The atmosphere seems to be Early Carnival Barker coupled with Industrial Kitchen. At least they have free peanuts while you wait for ten people to fill your order.

“TRY FIVE GUYS IF YOU WANT FAST GOOD FOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

My husband and I first found this restaurant while visiting Chicago. We hoped they would open here in the Seattle area. So we were excited to see the restaurant arrive, and we visited on opening day. The restaurant is bright and airy with both high and low tables. As with all other locations, free peanuts are self served. Eight types of burgers are available and there are fifteen free different toppings that you can choose to add. Hotdogs, veggie sandwiches, grilled cheese, and two types of fries are also offered. A "little" is a single patty, while the regular is a double. Portions are large on all items. Every ingredient was fresh and bins were constantly being replaced. A employee kept the floors and tables clean for the next patron. There were many cooks(trainers & new employees) behind the counter so the noise level was loud in addition to the loud music. The burgers, fries, and peanuts were delicious. If you want fast good food, try Five Guys. Their website does offer a nutritional value if that is desired.One nice feature--you can order online and have your order ready for your arrival.
