A big ole sloppy burger with bacon on it. Just what the doctor ordered. If you're going to eat a burger, it makes sense to get a decent one vs. some thin little piece of meat at the drive through.

I don't know what happened to this place but the last few times I've been here, the fries are not good. on a few occasions they were way over salted. This last time they were way undercooked, soggy, and not brown at all. they resembled more of just boiled and dipped in grease

They have an awesome veggie burger with mushrooms and their Cajun fries are my favorite. I normally get small fries but they add all the extra fries in there too so it tends to become more like a medium. They also have free peanuts so that's pretty aweome.

The place is big and usually not too crowded. Their burger are relatively rich, burger + fries was enough for me. Free peanuts are available while waiting.

When I ask people about their opinion about Five Guys, they either love it or hate it. Many love the taste of all the food, which is also filling. Some of the biggest criticisms include the price (it's not cheap) and the amount of grease--leave the food in the bag and the paper will soon be very soiled. For me,... More

I've always liked Five Guys and still do. It's almost like going to Mc D"s, you always know what your going to get, No surprises. Just good burgers and more fries that you and your partner can eat. Hey Guys, keep up the good work and I'll keep stopping in.

Reader beware, the food here is addictive. I was once in a dark place for a period of about a month last summer. I would sit through lectures, mouth watering, unable to focus on professors because I needed my Five Guys fix. The atmosphere is welcoming. The fries are the best in town. But those burgers.... I'm not proud of... More

If you are looking for a decent meal, Five Guys is a good stop. This restaurant sits just a few minutes from campus. You should expect to pay over ten dollars for your meal at this restaurant. While the burgers are good, they are nothing special. On the other hand, the fries (cajun) are definitely something to try.
