“Great Burger and Fries”
Review of Five Guys

Let's face it - if you're going out for burgers and fries, you're not looking to sit down at a table for an hour and go through the whole rigamarole of table service. You want to eat and move on with your day. Five Guys offers great burgers and fries without all the nonsense of a traditional sit-down restaurant. Your burger will get to you hot, juicy, and perfectly cooked. There are also about a dozen toppings with which you can customize your sandwich. For the uninitiated - a regular burger comes with 2 patties, so if you're not that hungry, order the "little" burger, which includes just 1 patty. Also, they serve their fries in a drink cup, which they purposely overflow into the bottom of the bag. So, if your appetite is less than Titanic-sized, the smaller order will do. They also keep the restaurant immaculately clean, even though peanuts are available to all guests for free. My only complaint would be that they use Coke Freestyle machines. The design flaw of these machines is that your drink will taste like the last person's, due to the fact that all the liquid comes out of one nozzle (totally not Five Guys' fault).

Overall, a good place for lunch or dinner. You'll be satisfied and full, and you WILL be back.

Good burger. Handmade. We liked it. Bun was second rate. Didn't eat it. Fast food, but not a fast food environment. Great place to eat fast and get on with your day.

The burgers can't be beat unless you make them yourself. The fries are good and fresh until they get cold... then they are limp and greasy and not worth the calories!

After a long drive northward, I was happy to find food. The white and red decor looked very clean. I had a vanilla shake and a little burger for $10. Both were amazingly delicious. Wish they didn't have the calorie count posted, but I was starving so I didn't care. My guys ordered the Cajun fries. They LOVED the spiciness, The French Fry servings were so large. They wanted me to eat some, but I didn't like the spices.
Many people mention that it is "pricey", but you get good quality food, and they are paying their workers a full salary, not a waitress salary that depends on tipping. I would go back to any Five Guys in a heartbeat. In my memory, I can still taste the deliciousness.

The burgers put out at Five Guys are the best.....I like mine with bacon, cheese and carmelized onions (like heaven) ! Nothing stingy here, fries are enough for 2-3 people in a regular order! I now make burgers like theirs at home! Lots of extra toppings for no charge........
