“Best burgers around for over 20 years. Gotta try it.”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Handmade burger patties with all the topping you want included. Each one is made to order. They keep it simple here, burgers, hot dogs and fries. Fries come from different potato farms every day and the origin is listed on a board. A small fry is enough for 2 to share. Also, a regular burger is 2 patties so I get a small burger.

“Best burgers and fries”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Five guys has very friendly staff and some of the best burgers and fries that I've ever had. Plus, free peanuts while you wait. Highly recommended.

“Overrated - it is merely okay”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

I work in the area so dropped in to grab a burger that co-workers had been raving about. The prices had increased about 10% since they had gotten the flyer. I walked in and did a take-out to eat back in my office. The doublecheeseburger was either greasy or watery from too much mayo or wet toppings - in the five minutes before I was back at my desk, the bun had soaked through and eating it was definitely a five-napkin experience. The taste was okay, but nothing I can't do at home. It certainly isn't better than, say, Fuddruckers, and the price increase is getting it in the same price range. Someday, someone on the East Coast will figure out how to replicate In-n-Out Burgers' business model which includes great-tasting burgers with buns that don't soak through in the five or ten minutes after you pick it up.

“Great hamburgers, lots of fries”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

always a good meal for a fair price. Hot fries, way more than you pay for dropped into the bag.
