The regular burgers are huge-- I usually get a junior cheeseburger. There's a list of toppings to choose from ranging from my faves- lettuce, tomato, mayo, ketchup (but sometimes A-1), to fresh or grilled onions, mushrooms, jalepenos, and a bunch of other things I can't remember.

The real star is the french fry offering. The chalkboard always lets you know where the potatoes came from for today's fries. If you're by yourself, or even with a friend, order the small fries. An extra scoop is tossed into the bag, and there really are plenty. On our first visit we made the mistake of ordering 2 large orders-- and had to toss some of them--- they're so good... what a crime. We enjoy them with malt vinegar, available in all the stores.

We try not to go too often--- but it's always a special treat.

You can't beat a Five Guys burger and fries. Try it and you will experience a freaken fantastic meal. Seriously, it is worth every penny.

A chain - an fresh but incinerated burger - fries swimming in grease evident by the stained paper bag. Why would anyone say they have good food - EVER???

This is the Original Five Guys ... It's definitely worth a lunch if you're in Alexandria. It's been cleaned up since it first started, when there were peanut shells all over the floor but the lines are still just as long at lunch time!

We kept hearing how good Five Guys is, so although we steer clear of fast food places we decided to give it a try. It was just like fast food burgers and fries to us -- nothing special. The only interesting difference were the peanuts you munch on while waiting for your order to come up. No point in going there again.
