Five Guys simply beats any other fastfood option for burgers but often also most other burger places. The meat is juicy and delicious, the buns are perfectly fresh as are all other ingredients. My favorite burger.

This was the most convenient place to eat in the mall area of DC. The location is so great because it's located next to a train station and a nearby hostel for anyone who wants to travel on a budget. I liked so much that I had lunch at this location every day that I was here.

Five guys is a national chain and the local DC franchisees do not disappoint. If you're into visiting chain restaurants while out of town, then come to Five Guy's for the familiar burgers and sweet potato fries!

The Prez and Veep eat here, so what could go wrong? Unfortunately Five Guys burgers just aren't what they're hyped up to be. Shake Shack has far superior beef, and their patties have the tasty crust that Five Guys burger patties tragically lack--and Shake Shack doesn't even have the world 'burgers' in their name! Was surprised by how the regular... More

I have to admit this is a guilty pleasure. the service here is good and the burgers are tasty. they accommodate children and have high chairs available. try the various soft drinks from the machine as there are lots to choose from.

Very handy to our hotel and near the Metro entrance/exit. The burgers were excellent and service too! Yeah for the free peanuts.

My kids really enjoyed it. Good hamburger, full of juice and taste. Fries was very good and a large potion. Cost- a bit over regular "fast food" places but worth it

We had dinner here 3 nights out of 3. The first time we decided to try it because it was close to our hotel and because it received really good reviews, here, on Tripadvisor. After trying it, we both think it's one of the best choices we've made this vacation. Since then, we've even visited the Five Guys in NY.... More

We went here for a late night snack -- burgers, veggie burgers and milkshakes. Love the free peanuts and the gourmet burgers. Delicious.
