Yes, that was me, AGAIN, stopping by for my fry fix and filling up on peanuts while I waited. Don't tell my doctor.

“Bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2010

Don't spend your money at any 5 guys. It took 10 minutes to get the food. It was $80 for 6 of us, and the food wasn't even good

“Delightful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2010

Wonderful burgers! All the ingredients are extremely fresh, not frozen and they use peanut oil so no trans fats. If you have a peanut allergy however, do not stop in as they have big boxes of peanuts all over the place for snacking and use peanut oil. A review on Yelp mentioned the little burger was actually regular size and the regular fries feeds 2. It is true so keep that in mind. Even my husband was filled up with a little bacon cheeseburger, splitting a regular cajun (spicy) fry with a coke. Because there is nothing frozen here, you can not get shakes however, they did have a lot of variety of sodas and water. Also, this is specifically a burger place so there is not a lot of variety if looking for something else. That being said, they do offer hot dogs and for vegetarians you can get grilled cheese or a veggie sandwich with very fresh veggies. This is my favorite place to get a burger besides Ric's Dog Gone Good Food on Route 22 in Lake Zurich. If they would offer Merkt's chedder cheese for my burger and fries I would have given them 5 stars!
