Review: Five Guys


Olivia Bowden

Five Guys restaurant on Collins Road

Five Guys opened on Monday, Feb. 27 and has been packed ever since.

Five Guys is open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

I dined at Five Guys on March 2 around 7 p.m. and the line was out of the door. I didn’t really know a lot about the place except that it was a good burger joint.

I thought they would have a drive through, but they didn’t which was disappointing.

A girl working at the register said the most popular time is around 8 p.m., “people think they are avoiding the crowd.”

The line was about a 15 minute wait until I got to order and another 5-10 minute wait for my food to come out.

There were 19 employees cooking the food behind the registers.

I ordered a bacon cheeseburger which cost $8.69, a regular sized carton of fries, $4.19 and a “Five Guys Shake” that cost $4.49. I thought the prices for the food I ate was overpriced. However, despite the expensiveness, the food tasted really good.

Five Guys orders their potatoes from Idaho, because Idaho grows the best potatoes. When I was there the potatoes were from CBC Farm, in Parker, Idaho. In addition, workers handcut the fries every day. Another great fact about the food it that there are no fillers or preservatives.

Overall I would give Five Guys 4/5 stars.
