My bf Rick and I went here the other night after the gym. I'm a critical person but I have to say Five Guys is pretty good. Burger is cooked medium and the fries are spectackular. Only slight problem I have to mention is the "blast" afterwards. ;)

im a HUGE fan of In-n-Out burger and no i dont think this place is better than them. However, i do think this place is awesome and was really impressed with my little cheeseburger. when i opened the aluminium foil wrapper i wasnt impressed how smushed my burger was and it looked really greasy. after a bite i fell in love. it was so juicy and flavorful and surprisingly not messy at all. and the fries were soo good. mine happened to be closer to well done, which i prefer and they were piping hot, perfectly salted and had a nice bite to it. if you are coming to this place for the first time with In-n-Out burger as a comparison.. of course you arent going to like this place. its not in-n-out but my new favorite burger joint on the east coast...

Why is it that these burger places think fresh cut fries are best? It sounds good, looks good on paper, but if you don't know how to fry them for crispness, then all you get is a greasy bags of soggy potato strips. Although eating amongst big bags of potatoes is quaint. The burgers were good, be sure to distinguish between grilled onions and chopped onions when ordering. The default is chopped onions. I don't necessarily think the burgers are better than most others, but they hit the spot when in the mood.

Comparing this to In-n-Out? What? Where do I start? The bread is probably worse than a Wonder Bread roll, and my "little cheeseburger" had a "big amount" of grit in it.

This is the best burger we have had in NYC since moving from LA 13 years ago... The only bummer was that the fries were a bit oily but the burger is so worth it!!

Everything is made to order! So, learn to ask for what you want and how you want it cooked. Most of all be patient. If you can't wait - call ahead! If you want cheap food and quick, try fast food. Otherwise, prepare yourself for a great burger, which is made to order.

Look, Five Guys is the best burger you're going to find anywhere...period. I love my steak medium rare and my burgers medium but I'll be damned if I haven't tried a better burger than the "well done" ones they serve here. I'm from VA and I use to eat at two of the original five locations and they blew the Brooklyn Heights location out of the water...but these are still exceptional burgers, yes overpriced (like everything in NYC) but hell, they're on par with Shake Shack...in fact they're better...so get out there and get your cholesterol fix. Oh, and the fries kick ass too...
