    5 Guys > In n Out, no contest.

    Far more toppings available, much more hot and fresh when the burger arrives, and you cannot beat the cajun fries! Pricewise they are on par with In n Out. A double burger at 5 guys is far more filling than the double double. I can put down two double doubles at in n out and be as full from one of the double burgers at 5 guys. 5 Guys patties are much thicker than in n outs. While the double double is priced less, you certainly get less in terms of quantity while the quality is superior at 5 guys.

    IIRC the 5 Guys here is even pricier than down in the US. It's plastered with reviews/paper clippings from the US saying 'awesome $5 burger' and you step up to the cash and drop over $10 for a combo. Yikes.

    The fries were great when we ordered them with no salt and they gave us the entire batch, which was nice.

    Burger itself was meh, hand-formed patty was too thick. Really messy too.

    Being stuck here in Virginia I have no choice, if I did I choose In-N-Out every day. Five Guys wasn't bad to begin with but a few years back they went crazy and expanded everywhere and quality really went down. I took my wife to In-N-Out when we visited CA and she said it was the suck. I almost think it is a west coast vs. east coast thing. My heart is still in SoCal.

    i finally tried it a couple weeks ago and was underwhelmed. i don't like how the fries are thick, but they aren't terrible. i think if i go again, i'll try it with fresh veggies like lettuce and tomato. i was so distracted when i went (had the kid with me) that i forgot and only got grilled mushrooms and onions on my bacon cheeseburger. too much grease. honestly, the bacon doesn't really add much to make me feel like this place is great or anything.

    i'm not all that crazy about in n out either though. i like their veggies and buns, but i hate the fact that i got violently ill on a long car ride after eating it. i was so sick, i felt like passing out.

    i normally stick with having my husband make me one on long weekends and that satisfies all burger cravings. i do want to try the slater 50/50 down the street from me though because they have a spectacular beer selection.

    I came across a 5 Guys by accident in Long Beach, and I must say, I'm very impressed. I would eat there over In N Out any day of the week.

    We need "Five Guys" to come to Staples at least they will have a chance to score.

    I could name an few places I'd rather go to for a burger than In N Out, and Five Guys is certainly one of them.

    And the fries? Same thing, and not even a contest.

    Overhyped, overpriced, fries overcooked.

    Not worth the wait, not worth the price.

    I have been to three different ones in three different states and they were all the same. The burger is edible (hot dog is actually better) but not worth the trouble.
