Five Guys Burgers and Fries

September 20th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Today we went to Marlborough and had lunch at a fairly new burger place called Five Guys.  This branch of the multi-state chain is at 197 Boston Post Rd.
Inside is clean and red and white color themed:

I like the open kitchen and they seem to have an efficiently run system for getting the burgers out, it was only a few minutes for  our number to be called

Ethan  and I each got a small burger, I’m not sure how large the regular burgers are but these were plenty of burger for us.  They are hand-formed patties and you can get a variety of condiments and toppings including grilled onions and mushrooms at no extra charge.

I really liked this burger, it tasted great and the toasted bun was fresh and perfectly proportioned to the burger.
We split a regular order of fries which is a fair sized container but they over fill it so generously there are plenty of extra fries in the bag.

This was the “overflow” in the bag, definitely enough for  2 people.
Too bad this is so far over in Marlborough, which I rarely get to, but this is a great place to go to if you’re in the area.  Check out their site for more info:

    This sounded really good until I went to their website and read on the FAQ list that they only serve burgers well done. Blecch!!

    After reading your post I decided to try it out – good, simple food!! Definitely many notches above McDonalds or BK. The hamburger was really good and everyone was friendly..

    Best burger I ever had, and you’d never know it was cooked well done … they’re that good. Trust me on this one Sandra. :^)

    The regular, or large, is a double patty burger, and the fries are to die for. No charge for any of the toppings.

    p.s. The Indian restaurant next door, Tandoori Grill, is a very good take also.

    Reg burger is double patty. It can be very messy if you have a few toppings on it.

    You also forgot to mention the peanuts which are salted in the shell. Nice appetizer while waiting for you burgers to be prepared.

    We first discovered 5-Guys in Ft. Lauderdale on vacation and loved it – was glad to see it here, and has been worth the extra drive from Framingham. The burgers and fries are great – even if well done (as compared to all dried-out – which they are not!).

    Hi Michelle, and other readers:

    Five Guys recently opened in Natick on Route 9 in the Natick 9 and 27 Shopping Plaza where Building 19 and Stop and Shop are.
