We go to 5 Guys once a month and are never disappointed. I hate to think how many calories the burgers are but they are delicious. The staff is also friendly and enthusiastic. 5 Guys is a nice upgrade on fast food for a small increase in price

We all know that Five Guys is a burger joint with excellent, hand cut fries -- and lots of them. In fact, Five Guys lives on their business model of handing you a (small) foil wrapped burger loaded with the veggies of your choice, and a huge bag of fries. So, what happened to these greedy, selfish losers at this... More

Not quite as fast as a drive thru restaurant, but definitely a level above ordinary fast food! Delicious burgers and fresh fries! Prices have gone up a little over the past year or two, but still about the same price as ordinary fast food/burgers. Dining room is a little sterile, but once again, better than bright yellow plastic bench seats.... More

First time and we will return to this local chain. We came in early for lunch and the place was newly cleaned. Two everything burgers, one grilled cheese, large fries, 2 sodas and a shake.... $34 with tax. It feels like a local Johnny rocket, with red and white decor. Bathrooms were clean too. The highlight was the milkshake....Coffee, salted... More

One thing about Five Guys, their portions are amazing, the quantity of fries is mega, and they both taste fantastic. Once they load up the burger, get plenty of napkins. And I don;t know why anyone would ever need a large order of fries...My daughter and I usually split one order. And those fries are phenomenal. I can;t give it... More

This is clearly one of the better burger joints out there. Juicy, tasty, and VERY filling and the cajun fries are absolutely "killer." Its kinda cool that the fries come from potatoes at a named farm. The staff is well trained and energetic, so even though I'll probably be moving slow for the next few hours after eating at Five...
