    Better than In And Out. #Period

    Not the best environment. The floor was a little bit sticky. Fries are on the soggy side. Som other people already mentioned this, but don't order large fries, just don't. Regular is more than enough.

    If you order online you can save your favorites and you don't have to wait in line.

    The music is too loud. Thank goodness there's outdoor seating.

    $2.29 for a regular soda? Nope, water will do.

    Great burgers... and yes order the fries small... trust me

    Don't come on a Friday. Service for orders placed online take forever to get. Even when they are ready to be sent out.

    If you are allergic to peanuts don't eat the free ones.

    Justus Herrmann · October 14, 2012
  • Yacine B.

    Order half of what you'd want in fries and that'll be too much.

    Yacine Baroudi · August 24, 2012

    Every once in a while you need to eat a burger. But if you insist they do have great "VEGGIE" sandwiches! Don't forget order small french fries! You get a ton of them! Read more

    If you're allergic to peanuts, this place is a death trap.

    I hear that these five guys can work up a great mayonnaise for your burger

    The burgers are great. Also try the cajun fries.

    Hands down best burgers in town. And the soda fountain rocks my world because it's the only place where I can get coca cola lime!

    Justus Herrmann · December 17, 2011
  • Becker B.

    Every Friday when I wake up, I get super excited because I know in at noon I will have Five Guys inside me!

    Choose wisely for the drink...the vending machine is straight out of 2020!

    Love this place...soda fountain alone is enough to come where else I kno has a cherry-vanilla coke or an orange coke

    Garrett Vergili · October 12, 2011
  • Tien L.

    Cajun fries or GTFO

    Tien Le · October 10, 2011

    I mention to say food not good. But I will give them this, the burgers are ok. Reminded me me of ez take out

    Soggy French fries aren't my thing, so if you like them crispy, steer clear of that. Not too sure what the fascination is with this place is to be honest, its Just another fatty good place

    Skip it at lunch and go for dinner. It's WAY less crowded.

    Sue DeVol · August 13, 2011

    Order online and pick up. They drop the fries in the bag as they hand over your order so they are HOT!

    Sue DeVol · August 13, 2011
  • Eric M.

    This place blows!

    Eric M · June 8, 2011

    The little burgers are like normal sized burgers at other places. Regular size fry is enough for two.

    Alex · May 15, 2011
  • Mike M.

    Orderd with phone app. All good!

    Mike Martinez · May 2, 2011
  • Ed S.

    lame, not worth the money. Go to Miho Gastrotruck instead. don't order online, they won't get your order

    Don't order large fries! They give a lot already when you order a regular!

    Virginia Cheung · March 31, 2011
  • Sue D.

    Try all the different flavors of drinks! At least 100...
