Side Note: 5 Guys jalapenos are phenomenal. If you like anything spicy, order them on your burger.

Not sure where you've been to five guys, but every one I've been to is about half that price.

What do you order? The bacon cheeseburger is $7 by itself. It is an ok burger. If you are looking for the greasiest burger around, it will be exactly what you're looking for. Last time I ate there I told myself I wouldn't be back for a while, it was overly greasy for me.

Are you ordering two burgers to bring your total up to $14?

And if you think that's the greasiest burger around, you haven't had a greasy burger.

After being a store manager at five guys for over 2 years I can tell you the burgers are one of the best, they're big and juicy ( lmao ) And the Cajun fries are delicious. Can't get tired of them! And they care about their employees

considering the price, for a dollar or two more than your run of the mill fast food place, its a good burger. the fries i'm not a fan of, nor do they need to give you that many... if they had a value fry for a decent price, i would much rather spend less and get less.

however... when you compare 5 guys to the good burger places (boston burger company in somerville, ma, for instance) that cost another extra dollar or two, well, then there is no comparison. even a $6 burger from your local steakhouse during happy hour is better all around than 5 guys.

A day? In my store about $5,000. $7000 on a busy day like Friday or Saturday. There's some that make a lot more. I'm sure McDonald's does more than that though

Am I right?

It's not really a rip off, I've gone to other place to eat like subway or Jerry's subs and pizza and the total always comes out to $15 for a sub, fries and drink. It's the same everywhere

im sure your food cost is somewhere in the 15-20% since there are no combos

average weekday were between 6-7.5k. saturdays we can do up to 10 but the trick is the drive thru 70% of our business is thru the drive thru and we get them in and out so we really focus on TC's and building hourly sales. we have been getting away with some high average check sandwiches lately and they have been selling.

Fries are great! Burger is so so. Lots of grease just reminds me of a fried burger I got at home when growing up.. Hate the noise in the restaurant, OK if you don't want to have a conversation.

absolutely love 5 guys. It's fuucking awesome.

I dont know why but their burgers are just really really good. Totally my style of burger and I keep it simple.

A cheese burger is two patties, I just add ketchup and mayo sometimes bacon or jalapenos which for some reason are hot as hell from here.

I agree sometimes there burgers can get a hit greasy. I hate when grease drips from the buyer when you are eating it but none the less I still love five guys. Bacon cheeseburger with BBQ sauce.
