We always enjoy a quick burger at Five Guys in the evening when I don't want to cook. We call in our order and by the time we walk there (6 -10 minutes), our order is ready. I like the veggie sandwich, because I watch my calorie intake:(green peppers, lettuce,tomatoes grilled onions and mushrooms, $3.69)). My husband always orders the... More

Being a creature of habit, I do like my Five guys burger a certain way but there's not a whole lot of ways you can change things up. I typically get the Little Bacon Cheeseburger with all the trimmings and a side of Cajun fries. The Cajun fries are delicious but extremely greasy so unless these are an occasional indulgence...

Visited the place after a night out in San Diego. The burger and chips was pretty good. Did also like the peanuts. Not the most charming place but good enough

Fries are perfect. Service is okay, but I guess expected in a place like this one (considering how you order). These burgers are... More

An excellent experience. My partner is celiac and cannot have any food contact with wheat, barley or rye. I went in to investigate and by chance talked to Joey who happened to be the shift manager. Boy, did he know how to handle celiac allergy situation. Change of gloves, cross contamination, etc. He had it down pat. The best part... More

Start off, the burger was great. Best one I've had in America from these fast food places and I'm trying a fair few. I'm thinking they gave me like the giant portion of fries, which may have been why it cost a lot. Basically I could have fed 7. Get the small. Blown away by their drinks robot. That thing... More

If you are looking for an affordable, calorie filled, delicious meal, this is the place for you. There is a wide selection of burgers and hot dogs with an even wider variety of and drinks. Even waiting in line tastes good, as there are stacked boxes of great peanuts in the very middle of the restaurant; seriously, I have never... More

We had dinner at five guys, the burgers are always good and fresh and the French fries are delicious. It is most if you are in la Jolla or at Encinitas.

My son knew this burger chain from Seattle, WA and we decided to give it a try. The ambiance is really simple, but the service is friendly and welcoming. The burgers are reaaaallly good, the best I tried in SD! The prices are beyond fair and overall, it was a great experience!

Tastes good! Like to choose ingredient! But french fries are too salty for me.
