A good burger! Not amazing! There's a lot of hype about the place. A hamburger is £6.75 and has a double pattie. All ingredients are fresh. You get to choose your toppings at no extra cost. The milkshakes are nice but pricey. They have a huge range or sodas which are refillable. Service is fast and you can help yourself to unlimited monkey nuts whilst you wait!


It really is a good burger! I like five guys,I like having five guys in Islington! My only problem with a five guys burger is that I really want a burger and a half! I am not a fan of double patties- it gets in the way of all the yummy toppings and then it can become a precarious burger. I always think when I go- more burger less chips!

I think Five Guys is a must visit for anyone who is always on the seek for a good burger. I also like that you can eat it with your hands and it squishes with your hands,so you have the perfect grip for munching!! 

Service is good,nothing write home about,but it's fast food, as long as they take the right order and don't spit in it,I am happy.

Yes go and have a five guys,tell your friends,tell your mum- it's yum!

I also like the peanuts,which are free, they have for you to much on in the cue or just whilst you wait for your burger to be cooked. I have been know to fill one of their brown bags full of the those nuts as a going home present : ) don't do that.....or do! Or just make sure you eat your fill before having your meal!!

Bonus to selling beer and a fun selection of soft drinks too,also they have a good milkshake on offer. Around about £8-£10 per head,not bad at all

The Man on the Street

Recently the Hamburger seems to have been a little over-glorified, and Five Guys has a reputation that I don't entirely understand. However, they have made grub-on-the-go more fun if you are after a quick meat feast. I like the decor - it has sense of fun , and although not cheap , I prefer this to the Golden Arches any day.

I went in with some friends who couldn't stop talking about Five Guys. What a disapointment! Burgers are expensive, sit in area is dreadful (ultra basic white and red furniture, no windows downstairs, smelly place) and staff was mean (a girl in front of us in the queue was not fluent in English and instead of helping her order they started to make fun of her English). If you want to enjoy a good burger in a nice restaurant with respectful staff (for the same price) you can just cross the street and visit Byron!
