My husband and I have been to Five Guys a few times since it opened. I have learned a few things 1) even the small cheeseburger is HUGE 2) a regular order of fries can be split between 2-3 people. Best burgers, hands down, around here! They are made to order and bursts with toppings.

The hotdogs would be much better if they offered traditional toppings such as chili & slaw.

The food was good, in the same class as Wendys.
I rated it poor because of the value being well below average.
You do get a HUGE pile of fries even with the small order, and the fries are OK, but not spectacular.
The "Little" burger is just a tad smaller than the single at Wendys, but enough, especially with the ton of fries and peanuts to eat while waiting 10 or 15 minutes for your order to come up.( The wait is another minus for anybody on a restricted lunch time.)

The price? I paid $9.95 for a "Little" burger, small fries and small drink. Too much to pay for a burger and fries in a fast food environment.

If it was $5.00 better than Wendys, I could understand and would on occasion spring for the higher priced yet better burger and fries. But its not better, just more expensive.
