Let's get this straight, right off the bat: Five Guys is a pricier burger joint out of all of them. They cost more than McDonald's without a doubt, but the reality is that you get what you pay for and Five Guys is just so much better than that.
The regular burger is a double patty burger, and the cheeseburger version comes with two slices of cheese. If you want a single patty, you have to order the little burger or cheeseburger. You get to choose whatever toppings you want, but there is a traditional "all the way" that has a variety of toppings including sauteed onions, lettuce, tomato, pickles, etc. I love to get mayo, lettuce, ketchup, mustard, jalapenos, raw onion, sauteed mushrooms and LOTS of pickles on mine. Everything gets perfectly melded together and becomes super delicious when it is packed.
The fries at this place are unreal. They are so fresh and delicious, and they are made with fresh Canadian potatoes every day! Do not order a fry for each person because the amount that they are going to give you will be too much. We get one regular fries for two people, but we've also served five of us with two regular fries.
If you get the fries, you also need to make sure that you ask for cajun seasoning, but get it on the side. They tend to over season it if you get it put on by the staff, and this way you can choose exactly how much you want. Or, you can separate it so if someone doesn't want the seasoning (you'd have to be crazy or on a medically-induced reduced sodium diet) they can have them plain.
They also offer ketchup, two types of vinegar, and salt and pepper for your own use.
The fountain drinks are good as expected, and the vibe in the restaurant is cool and fun. They play music loud, but they play a variety of rock and classic rock, so there's a great sound going on.
My only negative side of this whole restaurant is that it is not peanut allergy friendly. Part of their theme is having peanuts available for people to eat while they wait, so there are loose peanuts throughout most of the restaurant unfortunately. If it weren't for that, this restaurant would be the best ever. Sorry peanut allergy people!
Juicy, tasty, filling burgers. Lots of toppings, if you are into that. They give you tons of fries! More fries than you can eat, so if you are eating with other people the best thing to do is share. The only thing that could make it better is gravy for your fries, they don't have that.
Great burger place. It's totally worth the price. I love the buyer has 2 patties and the toppings are awesome. And the fries soooo many fries! If you want something quick and filling this place is it
I only go once in a while because it's a pricey burger place, but everything is fresh. They don't have freezers, but coolers. There's hot dogs and sandwiches as well. Peanuts are everywhere. Add as many toppings as you want.
