The burger was good and the fries both hot and plentiful. Seating inside or on the shared patio with a fountain in front. Known for a $5 burger, at over $10 my tab was a little pricier than expected. Not sure I'll return.

The burgers and fries were very good, but they were not cheap. The staff members were very friendly and the food was prepared hot and fast.

Over $11.00 for a little burger, little fries, and a drink. Too much and not even that good. Diet Coke ran out but no one would replace it. They seemed very short staffed.

Typical Five Guys experience - yummy food and friendly staff. Clean dining area and restrooms. Sit outside if you can - the birds will come right up to you for a Five Guys french fry (smart birds!)

Ate there the other day. The signs on the wall tell everyone they serve the best burger in town. Well, it was good. And they give you ample fries. But you pay through the nose. Over $14, and I didn't even order a drink. The...More

Yesterday was the first time I ate at Five Guys. The burger and fries tasted excellent. The interior dining area is kind of small. I would eat here again when next in town.

The outdoor sitting area is very peaceful and a great place to sit and relax. Though the food is not that great and therefore, it was bit of a disappointment to me.
