$4 for a cup of fries and $2.50 for a small soda. Burgers were $6-8 each a la carte. NO MILK SHAKES!!! Who sells burgers and no shakes?!? Over $40 for a family of four to eat here. The burger and fries were tasty, but...More

Excellent customer service which really either makes or breaks a place. But even that aside, they had one of the best bacon cheeseburgers I have ever had.

The best, fresh cut fries and the best tasting burger I have ever had(seriously). It's a small place, nothing fancy but the food is fabulous. Everyone who worked there seemed liked they were having a good time..friendly atmosphere, very down to earth.

This place was delicious, but I did not feel good after it. It was pretty greasy. I would definitely recommend that everyone go there at least once!

Came to town to visit our son and stopped in to eat at Five Guys. Burger were good, but the fries were excellent. Especially with malted vinegar. Staff was very friendly and the restaurant was very clean. Highly recommend to anyone who loves french fries.
