After hearing about how this burger chain was taking the U.S. by storm, I decided to go check it out. The layout was nostalgic, like a 60's burger joint. They had complimentary peanuts while you waited. Upon ordering, I noticed that a simple burger is $8 bucks (came out to be around $9.25), and that was without fries and a drink. Let me tell you, after so much hype about how good these burgers where, I was terribly disappointed. I received a soggy bun about the same size as a cheeseburger bun from McDonald's. The meat was modest to say the least, nothing one couldn't cook up in their barbecue with store-bought ground beef. The only positive thing I can say about 5 Guy's was the service and complementary peanuts!
Bottom line: 5 Guy's is overrated; don't believe the questionable reviews plastered all over the walls.

Had dinner for 2. Asked about the special of the day, end up receiving the most expensive dish on the menu. Host was more of a salesman than anything else. The ambiance is very relaxing and calm. The food was amazing, had to take it home. Unfortunately, the host snuck in naan bread and rice, which cost extra. I recommend the Tikka Massala, wings from hell, and the butter chicken. The food did take a while to arrive, despite there being only 3 other tables dining.Bill came out to $80, as the host worked his sales skills rather than his host skills.
I definitely recommend this restaurant, as long as you make sure you know what you're buying and don't fall for any of the hosts sneaky tricks.
