    Ate there when I was in Ft. Myers last year. I have to agree with everyone so far as it was pretty good.

    You'll be alright if all you have to do is finish the burger. A "small" fry there is a 16 oz. soda cup full thrown in a bag with about another cup full dumped on top.

    Generally speaking, the food is great and the prices are pretty darn decent for all you get.

    They rock! The original is in Alexandria, VA. I used to go to the one in Manassas until I moved to Miami. Now we have several of them here so I can get my fix.

    20 some odd toppings to choose from, at no extra charge. They do their fries the Belgian way by double frying them.

    I started a thread about a month ago (maybe more) about where to find the best burger. My vote went to five guys and so did some others. Their burger is by far the best you'll find in any chain. Alot of people mentioned their local mom and pop places but as far as a chain no one beats them. They are growing fast around the country and I can see why.

    Outstanding burgers! Have eaten in four separate store fronts in four different cities and I'v never been disappointed. Had a 5G burger Friday night for dinner.:cool:

    My wife and I used Five Guys as our "lucky charm" during this past year's college football season and ate at 5G's before every game. We went undefeated and ended up with a couple of big trophys in the case to boot. It has to be the grilled onions!

    Burgers and fries are very good.

    In fact, burgers, fries and hot dogs are all they have on the menu if you don't count the free peanuts.

    I usually have 2 cheese burgers and fries when I go. I don't eat fries often, but when I do they have to be good.

    But they are not at all inexpensive.

    Same here. I've eaten at 3 different ones and the quality has been consistent.

    By far the best chain burger joint I've ever been to. And they are big. But not really too big. I've never not finished mine. But every now and then I will get a few too many fries. One thing I really love about them is that the jalapenos are fresh, not pickled. But be careful. If you get too many on one bite, they will light you up.

    Guess I'm in the minority in that I'm underwhelmed by them.
    It was ok, and I did get a ton of fries, but a regular burger, small fries and drink cost me $12.
    For that money, I prefer Johnny Rocket's atmosphere.
