    Is the hype real? Will be in Knoxville tomorrow and trying it out for the first time.

    It's pretty good. You might be disappointed if you're traveling hundreds of miles.

    Not going just for the Five Guys, but figured I'd try it while I was in town.

    May also make you have to take a pretty significant dump. Might want to plan on that. It's greasy.

    its worth the hype, if its take out then you may want to bring a towel so the grease doesn't get on you car seat

    Love the cajun fries dipped in vinegar. Also, as kpt stated, be prepared to give birth to an 8lb baby boy within 45 minutes of eating.

    Went Saturday after the Knoxville Open. Barely made it back to Morristown. Worth every cheek clenching moment.

    It's damn good, though I'm not quite sure it lives up to the hype. Maybe I just take it for granted because I'm close enough to hit a golf ball to two locations...well, maybe I couldn't hit a golf ball to 'em, but I'm sure bmfpv could.

    Nevertheless, it's tough to [uck fay] up a burger. Always good, imo, and 5 Guys is no different.

    Speaking of bmfpv... Where's he at?

    Not sure it's worth the hype, I mean, it's good, I ain't hatin', but it's a burger

    I have let this thread down. Ended up skipping lunch today. Sad face.

    The fries at Five Guys are more overrated than Sin Cara.

    The saving grace for them is vinegar at the table.

    I'm glad to see more of these popping up. The only one I ever ate at (until more recently) was at Reagan airport when connecting through. It's good - but don't expect a life-changing experience.

    i'm not a huge burger kind of guy but the bacon cheeseburger is pretty [uck fay]ing awesome. don't expect to cum on yourself just from the taste. i'm not sure really what the hype has told you but all in all it's a solid burger.
