I've never had any problems in person at Five Guys, but I have had issues with their delivery. The first time I tried to order from here, the woman on the phone had a nasty attitude. The last time I ordered from here, the delivery guy made a comment about his tip (I gave him 20%). The food and price are decent, but the experience is dampering.

Yeah, it's expensive for a fast food joint. Because it's fresh and actually tastes good; duh! Go ahead and save $3 at McDonald's on West 3rd by eating your poorly made, small, not fresh burger that has no taste or ingredients that are capable of being digested. I'd rather pay $4-5 extra for a "value meal" at Five Guy's when you get a bigger and better sandwich and a *lot* more fries (that aren't soggy and tasteless, ahem). Five Guy's burgers are big, tasty, and the ingredients are fresh; the beef is never frozen and the potatoes used for the fries are of high quality. Remember to say the toppings you want slowly so there's no mistakes. Obviously in this general area you can get a high quality burger for under $10, such as at The Corner Bistro, but if you're in the area for a quick, especially drunken, bite, then Five Guys is a great place.

It's quite simple, really: $12.00 (before tax) for a cheeseburger, small fries and small soda at a fast food place is too much. Case closed. Period. Done. Finis.

I'm really glad 5 Guys in the neighborhood. If you want a cheap, fast burger that holds its own vs. a gourmet burger (but for only $4-5) this is your place. You can also get a great variety of toppings you won't find at most burger joints. I really like the fries too..maybe more than the burgers. I would say that because the burgers are small well-done the flavor is good, but not quite the same as a bigger patty done medium-rare, but it's a different style.

if a burger joint doesn't ask you how you want your burger cooked, right there you know its not at the level of a real gourmet burger joint. Five guys double stacks two burgers, which makes it extra greasy. Good for hangovers. The Five Guys in miami is much much better, and it's cheap. This place works in miami, it doesn't work in NYC. For $7.00 (cheese burger)+ $5.00 fries you could get a gourmet burger at a real sit down restaurant. Way over priced for what you get, but their target audience are people that don't know better walking off Bleeker Street after a few drinks. Although the fries are really good at Five Guys, the place priced themselves out for the people who know, and the quality of their meat is only slightly above average. Use your imagination, and eat elsewhere

Best burgers. Seriously yummy. Love the free toppings. The service is friendly but slow, and the atmosphere is nothing to write home about. But I'll forgive a lot for the burgers - try them with mushrooms and grilled onions.
