Delicious burgers and fries.

Or a gay orgy. Not sure what kind of 5 guys you may have gotten.

I heard some people really enjoy having five guys in their mouth.

But seriously. The burgers are freaking awesome. Download the app so you can place your order on the phone and not have to wait in line during your lunch break.

Mediocre burgers and fries for premium prices.

I go there to munch on peanuts when I'm hungry, if I was homeless I would probably take their potatoes and eat them too.

Agree. I feel like I'm paying a sit down restaurant prices for a burger made at a neighbors BBQ. although their Cajun fries are above par compared to most places

i go to smashburger a lot and they have pretty good burgers and fries, but it does seem to cost much more than what you get. probably like $22 for two people to eat. seems similar to that. also have a meat heads, which is similar concept too. all upscale burger places.

Not impressed with 5 Guys. Went there at lunch time and the fry machine was getting pounded hard. Oil never had a chance to recover, so my fries came out undercooked. I could smell the cajun salt from my side of the counter, so I knew what it would taste like and didn't bother getting it. Burger didn't have a good beef flavor, so I'm in no rush to go back.

Go in a couple of weeks after the craze dies down and the employees find their groove.

Delicious. I enjoy their burgers and fries a lot, but if there are better offerings for comparable prices I'd be interested to hear what they are. There are no IN N OUT stores near where I live, but I've eaten them enough to know they are comparable (and great!).

Like Glock said, 1 order of fries is enough, even between multiple people.

As far as local joints go, I would go to steak'n'shake any day of the week over 5 Guys.

I like steak n shake a lot, but never get filled up and feel like it costs too much to leave me hungry. I call this the "Breadco/Panera" effect.

Spend $10 and leave hungry

With 5 Guys I'm definitely full at the end. I do wish we had In N Out as well to have another option though.

I would trade in and out for steak and shake any day.

That and Waffle House, might be the only two places I miss from the south.
