Five Guys in Nashua!

I was just driving on 101 and I saw a sign for them in the new strip mall near where Chen Yang Li was. Not sure when they're opening but I look forward to trying them out.

      Saw the sign yesterday. It'll be a while before the open. It's a new strip mall (which doesn't look like it has enough parking to support a restaurant) and only the exterior is built so far.

    2. #1---there is a thread running on the CHAINS board, check it out.
      #2---quality and price varies by the individual franchise owner....
      But overall, good quality at not inexpensive prices. Expect to pay $10 for a regular hamburger, small fries and small soda.

      I had lunch in the New Haven, CT location Saturday and it was up to standards.

      #3 If you don't like well done burgers, go somewhere else. Five guys ONLY serves well done, NO exceptions.

        What's the point of eating there if you can't get a hamburger the way you want - i.e. rare?

        1. re: PutneySwope

          Well to be fair, can you get a rare burger in ANY fast food joint?

            I, for one, don't understand what all the fuss is about 5 Guys. I will admit - the fries are to die for....really terrific and addictive, but the burgers are nothing special, and any time I've had one, it has really been cooked to death. In the New Haven area, far better burgers are available at places like Glenwood and Nick's Char Pit.

              whats the name of the old burger place down there that cooks the burgers on there side, in like a toaster oven, saw it on TV a while back?

                  thanks are they good burgers?

                  1. re: djr222

                    It's been several years since I've eaten there, and I think that like so many overhyped things, the product, while very good, is not all that extraordinary. Better than the average burger, but in my opinion, not really worth going out of your way for (unless it's to soak up the history!!!).

                  They have the same type of vertical grill at the Metropolitan Club in Framingham (or Natick?)

                    thanks , have been there , ok just a little small, good taste but , from what I read and have seen on tv shows the one in CT is realy good

                    but thanks

              I personally prefer burgers with smaller, thin patties that are usually cooked most of the way or all the way through. I can be a fan of large, restaurant-style burgers in the half pound+ range but for me (and many others I guess) smaller and not rare does the trick.
