Burger is juicy and done just right. Five guys allows you to select what toppings you want on the burger or hot dog. Service is friendly and quick but burgers are not precooked.

I got the juiciest burger ever in this place. I tried their other branch in Germantown and I'm not that satisfied, I guess it depend on who's fixing your burger or how good is the meat they served

As usual, this Five Guys features great burgers and plentiful (and yummy) fries. Clean restaurant & quick service. The only negative was that the free peanuts weren't very fresh.

Disappointed that I received by cheeseburger on a roll that wasn't fresh, probably bought at a local grocery. Too much bread and sesame seeds for the burger. Had better previously at this location.

Five Guys has their niche nicely filled. There is a reason...fresh meat hamburgers, fresh cut French fries and free toppings for your burger. What's not to like?

I've eaten here a number of times (most recently last weekend), and there is just a consistently high quality (as I've found with almost every Five Guys location) that makes it worth returning to. On top of that, the service is almost always excellent. My only complaint continues to be with the policy that phone/internet orders still require a patron... More

I usually get double patties but I noticed extremely fattening; the peanuts were not fresh, pretty dry and old.

Came here for my lunch break with a coworker. I scoffed when she mentioned Five Guys because the last one I went to in Columbia, MD was so slow I didn't want to waste my whole lunch break waiting on a burger. She claimed they were fast, and boy was she right! The crew behind the counter was working it!... More

Love this place. They have the best burgers and fries in town. Love the atmosphere of the restaurant and they have the best customer service I have seen.

I stop in here whenever I'm in the area. Five Guys has GF french fries, since it's the only thing they cook in the oil. Great prices & huge portions. Free peanuts (in shells) while you wait. Friendly & competent staff.
