As usual the 5 guys menu is a heavyweight treat, juicy fresh and full of flavor and calories and fat. This place could be thriving but the personal is very grumpy, not attentive and doesn't care much. Went there several times during a week stay but always the same experience. If you make them aware that what they charged/served is... More

I liked the Five Guys because you can choose your ingredients. The portion of french fries it is huge and I saw a lot of people throwing away. We need to take care of environment and wasting food it is not a good thing to do. Five Guys could create a self-service for potatoes to avoid waste food.

If you like to experience a New York original burger, you are visiting the right place: perfect easy-going atmosphere; perfect prices, maybe even cheaper than the competitors; good meat and french fries! the quality as fast food is guaranteed by the minority of customers than Mc o Burger King: the service is more dedicated and kind.

Small intimate place. Great customer service. This is not a cheap burger but if you look at it as a treat it's more than worth the extra expense. I went for a large burger with multiple toppings and fries, my wife went for a small burger with a couple of toppings and fries; both washed down with diet coke. We... More

Love Five Guys at home and wanted a little "home", so I stopped here. It was just as awesome as the one at home. Way busier, but very clean, fast, friendly and fresh!

The reviews on the walls of Five Guys are all you need to know how good the burgers are here. No words can describe how good they are. Best burgers ever.

There is not much to talk about, the news and reports speak for themselves. The best burger (and fries too) in NY. The various options, toppings ... anyway, far surpasses all the burger chains in the city and maybe the country.

My daughter wanted to have dinner here and we were both a little disappointed. Hard to get a table and when we did there was mess all on the floor. Wouldn't rush back

We called in to get two take away milkshakes- salted caramel and peanut butter! Beautiful! Very crowded in there and quite chaotic but didn't matter as we were taking our purchases out

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
