My husband and I tried out Five Guys on a whim. I was very impressed with the service. Food was good and lots of it. Very tasty. Will definitely go again.

Went at wrong time of evening 7pm, it was crowded, waiting line, NOISY! The music was so loud I could not hear the person sitting across from me, he got up and stood next to me and talked loudly so I could carry a conversation on with him. If they only could turn the speakers down some. The burgers are... More

We all know Five Guys' burgers are great. But I want to compliment the staff. They really work hard at this location and they are friendly, too.

The name ought to be "Fries and Burgers" as that is the order of quality. The burgers are not bad, but they certainly are nothing to rave about. The fries, cooked to order, are hot and crispy. You also get a lot of them. Cajuns fries are worth trying if you like some heat. While better than the major national... More

As usual at Five Guys I enjoyed a great burger - well cooked and juicy with loads of toppings. Service was very good because the store was empty, but just after I ordered a large crowd came in and although I received my food relatively quick, the others were waiting some time.

This was my first time going to this five guys. It's not hard to imagine being to one Five Guys is like being at any Five Guys but that's not true. There was something about the food at this particular Five Guys on this particular day that was extra good.

My wife and I were babysitting our grandsons while my son and his wife went out for a nice, relaxing dinner. We told the boys that we would take them to dinner, and asked where they would like to go. They both yelled in unison "Five Guys!" I have been meaning to stop in one of their locations during our... More

I stop in this store occasionally cause I love their burgers and fries. The peanut oil they use don't repeat on me like other cooking oils do. BUT I learned a long time ago--I can't eat a large burger and small fries here--the burger is too big! When you ask for fries you not only get the size you requested... More

I really like 5 guys. I like the juicy burgers, and the fries are whole potatoes freshly fried. But this one was exceptional. First it was clean clean clean. They were wiping down tables and sweeping the floors constantly! The garbage cans were emptied and the place was busy at lunch on a Saturday. The staff was pleasant and efficient.... More
