Five Guys (MSP) [Moved from Midwest Board]

Anyone been to the new Five Guys in Edina? I loved their burgers when I lived out in DC and hope they can recreate the magic here. I think they opened in the last 1-2 days, so I think it's a little early to drop by...

  1. I know I am not in MSP - I am actually in Detroit. We just got our Five guys.

    I am now a very happy person. I loved their burgers...not the prettiest girl at the dance but she sure is dirty in ways I like. I even wrote home to mom!'

      A Five Guys just opened up near Milwaukee, too. I've heard much about them from some NYC blogs, but have yet to try them out.

      By the way, JanPrimus...greatest quote ever! "not the prettiest girl at the dance but she sure is dirty in ways I like. I even wrote home to mom!'"

        I'm in the Detroit area - I have got to make it over to Southfield. I first had FIve Guys while in DC a couple of years ago. Mmm....what a fabulous guilty pleasure...

      2. They opened on Wednesday i believe. I was there yesterday (Thursday) about noon. I had the little bacon cheese burger with fresh jalapenos and thought it was quite good. There was a pretty good crowd and they seemed to be moving everyone through pretty quick. They seemed well organized. I'm excited to try some of their other menu items as there aren't many fast lunch options in Edina.

        1. I have been to the one in St cloud and Wow its great.

          1. talk about a quiet opening, I have never heard of this place and I think I'm pretty connected to the food 'goings-on' in MSP.

              it originally wasn't supposed to open until mid-may, so it was a soft open.

            2. after reading this I had to send Mr. Puddin out to get burgers tonight. Yay for hand cut fries! They are just as good as Gene and Jude's fries in Chicago. Good burger, kind of messy but delicious, love that you can get grilled mushrooms and onions. Total bill for 2 of us was under $14.00. Only complaint from the Mr. was the eco-unfriendly fry container (styrofoam cup).

                What is the address for Edina's Five Guys?

                1. re: DaKing

                  I don't know the address, but it's in the same strip mall as Potbelly's and Leann Chin's across from the new Container Store. I think it's on Gallagher Drive.

                  As for my review, burgers were good, but not as good as I remembered. Needed a little more seasoning. That might come in time. But the fries were fantastic, and I got a ton of them.
