Typical Five Guys experience - yummy food and friendly staff. Clean dining area and restrooms. Sit outside if you can - the birds will come right up to you for a Five Guys french fry (smart birds!)

Stopped at Five Guys and ordered a hamburger, cheeseburger, and 2 fries… total was $21. Then, the clerk says, "forgot to charge you for 2 fries — it;s another $6." Then, waited for ~10 minutes, even though I was the only customer in the store. The burgers sat, unwrapped, in the prep area for about 5 minutes while they cooked... More

The hamburgers are excellent with as many topping as you want to put on since as fried unions, cooked mushrooms,etc. Dop not order the large fry as the medium order is more then enough for two people. They almost fill a bag to the top with fries. While you wait for your order grab a tray of peanuts to eat.

Ate there the other day. The signs on the wall tell everyone they serve the best burger in town. Well, it was good. And they give you ample fries. But you pay through the nose. Over $14, and I didn't even order a drink. The system may be called controlled chaos. The girl was taking orders while making the burgers.... More

Yesterday was the first time I ate at Five Guys. The burger and fries tasted excellent. The interior dining area is kind of small. I would eat here again when next in town.

The outdoor sitting area is very peaceful and a great place to sit and relax. Though the food is not that great and therefore, it was bit of a disappointment to me.

Whenever I crave a burger, only one thought comes to my mind: Five Guys. The burgers are very tasty, and there are plenty of toppings to choose from. The fries receive the same amount of praise, if not more than the burgers themselves. Free peanuts while you wait. Can't beat a Five Guys burger for the price.
