* Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Reprinted below is a Jeff Eats’ article which ran on November 2, 2006…at that time Five Guys was an “infant” fast-food burger chain.

Suffice it to say, that in the past 8 years or so–Five Guys has grown into a major player in the US fast food burger arena.

Over the years, Jeff Eats has eaten in “a” Five Guys numerous times…the food and service are consistently good. Prices are very reasonable .

If by chance you’ve never eaten in a Five Guys… check one-out!

Five Guys makes delicious burgers, fries and hot dogs!

Let me put this to you as simply as I can…if you like HAMBURGERS & FRENCH FRIES…you absolutely have to try Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries.

Five Guys is a fast-food chain. The last time I checked, it had 118 units (located predominantly in the northeast USA). Five Guys is planning a “major push” into South Florida, so don’t be shocked to see “one” opening in your neighborhood real soon.

Five Guys makes one of the best fast-food hamburgers that you will ever taste. The same goes for its fries. The same also goes for its hot-dogs. Just so you know, this joint’s menu has burgers, hot-dogs, fries and a grilled cheese sandwich on it “and that’s it.”

I am telling you, that you don’t want to miss this one. For “right now” the only Five Guys in “our” South Florida area is in West Palm Beach. This joint is open 7 days a week, 11am-10pm.

    JEFF –
    They recently opened a 5 Guys near home in New Jersey – Have not tried their burgers – BUT
    I gotta tell you to try their Bacon – Lettuce and Tomato sandwich prepared and served on a great burger bun – OUTSTANDING – No more toasted white bread sandwich for me –

    I love 5 Guys.
    Been going to the one in Wellington for years.
    Great burgers and fries.
    Just one thing, every so often the fries get over salted, so I tell the fry guy before he makes mine to go easy on the salt.

      Just had a chance to read your comments.

      I have to agree with you, every so often a find the fries too salty.

      With that in mind, like you, I always mention to the fry guy that I’d like my fried very lightly salted.

      Thanks for reading…

    Five Guys franchisee files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

      interesting read… they were building too fast and seems the minority holders wanted them to slow down.

    • KSR says...

      The burgers and ff are still delicious.

  5. Arnie ag says...

    Five guys is the best of all these type places.
    Food is always good and always freshly made.
    Burger Fi, Shake Shack etc font come close .

    Don’t care for Five Guys.
    They only make well done burgers and I’m a medium rare guy.
    Not for me!

    • Jon G says...

      Totally agree!! Medium rare is the only way to go. All these burger joints are the same. Well done and salty fries. I’m pretty sure most people don’t like this place but Flanigan’s makes a great burger cooked the way you like it and it’s 10 ounces. For lunch during the week they have a special that’s a 10 oz. Burger with side for $5.95 and you have to buy a drink. What a great deal and it’s delicious.Loaded baked potato is an excellent side.

        Five Guys is not the only place that just serves Burgers well done. I been caught to many times so now until I really know a place I ask if I can get the Burger medium well. If not I pass. I do stop in at 5 Guys once in a while for their grilled hot dog and french fries. Takes me back to my working behind a deli counter in Brooklyn during my HS and College years.

        • Shelly H says...

          That should read medium rare

          • Ken W. says...

            I love Medium Rare , but they can’t make it with a thin patty.. The Brass Ring makes a great medium rare.. Also the NY Steak House at the casino in Coconut creek offers them at the bar..

    • HerbK says...

      To me 5 guys is a step or two above McDonald’s because they only serve well done, not juicy at all, burgers. I drive past a couple of 5 Guys places on my way to Charm City Burger company, where I get a medium rare, juicy burger, with much better fries

  7. Ted R says...

    I love 5 Guys.
    They are the best of breed.

  8. KSR says...

    Had small cheeseburger and ff tonight.

  9. SSW says...

    I love their kosher style grilled hot dogs.

  10. POLI says...

    Five Guys is the best of the burger fast joints.
    Shake Shack, BurgerFi are no match.

  11. Joel Katz says...

    Good but not great.
