High fives for Five Guys. This NYU neighbor is a burger joint featuring thin patties cooked well with an amazing assortment of only the most American toppings. Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Ketchup Mustard Mayo, and Pickles is what the Burger Boy went with at this fast rising chain. Look out Shake Shack. 4 locations and no lines gives this place a leg up on the burger joint competition. On the rare occasion when there is a slight wait, they’ve even pulled out all the stops providing salted peanuts for their patrons to prime their palates. The atmosphere is plain, but clean, and the service is quick. In short, Five Guys keeps is simple and sticks to what they know - great burgers. I got the milk, the eggs, and the fabric softener. Well Kevin, you know what you didn’t get while you were Home Alone? A friggin’ Five Guys burger. Can’t argue with a spot who’s standard burger consists of two patties and all sorts of boo-ya on top. As a chain, and for the price and the speed, Five Guys is as good as it gets. If you don’t know, now you know.

there any time soon. After reading tons of great reviews on how their burgers are one of the best in NYC, I just had to try this place. The only good thing I have to say was that the burger was fresh, and made right after you order it. However the burger meat tasted like any other regular burger meat. I was abit disappointed to make the trip down to Soho for a mediocre burger.

I waited an hour for my burger to arrive. I live a block away. It wasn't even a busy time (2pm). The bacon cheeseburger was greasy, lukewarm, missing the bacon and A-1 sauce I ordered. Also, when I called, I spoke to a rude girl who acted like I was weird to be calling after 50 minutes. Maybe it's par for the course for them. Never again.

this place is super yum. the burgers are fresh, the toppings are plenty and the buns is good. the counter person is always friendly and the service is fairly speedy. Though it isn't as cheap as In-n-Out, I think the quality is as comparable. I like how they have the option of "little" burgers, which are 3 oz. patties since they do put a lot of toppings on. I've eaten here several times, and once or twice had the burger fall apart from a soggy-ish bun, but nothing that I would turn my nose up at. I think this place is delicious for what it is and i'm already wanting to eat another burger.

Friends brought me here and now I'm left to wonder what exactly people love about this place? It is not cheap, and the meat has a lot of grissle. I like well done burgers which is good, because it is all they serve.

I feel I need to step in here, based on the recent "In N Out" comparison. This place is nowhere near that level. It's not even a burger worth going out of your way for. The only similarity it has, is that it uses thin burgers, but then that goes out the window because it stacks two on top of each other and it basically could be any other massive NYC burger. They load the burger up with a bunch of unremarkable toppings (nothing fresh or West Coast quality) too the point the bun (also sub-par) turns in to a soggy mess. Another case of the NYC burger dilemma of weighing quantity over quality... Just another NYC burger grease-fest going on here.

This is the best "fast food"/ In-N-Out clone I have found in Manhattan, which is great. (The only thing it is missing is shakes). Reasons why I liked it... + You get two patties on your buger. + Tons of toppings, including A1 or BBQ sauce, at no extra charge. (I heaped on lettuce + onions and they gave me plenty). + Burger itself was nice and juicy. + The fries are delicious, cooked just the way I like them. Very crispy and with flavor. Portions were good - we ordered a large fries and split it three-way and got pretty full, and we were three dudes who can eat. + Soft-drinks are free refill, and they have tons of soft drinks in their soda fountain. I almost got a soda high from Coke Zero (which I've never seen in a soda fountain before) and Mr. PiBB. + Free peantus, as much as you want. + Service time to get everything fresh cooked was about 7 minutes, albeit I was there around 1:30 so the place was not too busy. + Interior was nice and clean. I have found my new place for a relatively cheap yet delicious burgers without having to walk all the way to Shake Shack and wait in that huge line.
