Forget the fast food chains. If you want a tasty burger made to order with what ever you want on it to top it off then head to Five Guys. Delicious burgers, tasty fresh fries (I like them with Malt Vinegar) and salted peanuts you can shell, you are in for a treat. If you like spicy fries try the... More

Fried burgers lack flavor.Excellent fries. Signs all over boasting how good they are. And they are, compared to Wendys and McDonalds.

This place is GREAT! It's sooooo good we have to control ourselves and visit only once a month or less. The french fries are the best! And, if you go away from here hungry, you ordered the wrong stuff!

Yes. I am in love with the fries....with the vinegar..... The burgers are so delicious. Cooked to order and on a steaming bun with just the right ingredients. Don't forget to order a root beer. What a meal....

The Food Here Is Good But It's Pretty Expensive. It Says Cheap Eats All Over The Place But That's A Lie. I Could Go To Red Robin For The Same Price LoL
