While enjoying Tennessee Theater, we happened on Five. At that time there was a special for $5 cheeseburger and fries. Excellent all of the way around! And the horseradish relish was a perfect accompaniment. Service. Atmosphere. Cleanliness. Will definitely return!

This was my fifth trip to 5 over the last five years. That was a tongue twister! I’d have to say that the menu isn’t as good as in the past. The breakfast burgers had been an amazing meal but wasn’t impressed this time. Not...More
