Multiple locations,

Anything called "Heaven on a Bun" by the Tampa Tribune is probably worth trying. A Washington, D.C.-area export, Five Guys is making a name for itself right here in Ohio with its signature juicy hamburgers and fresh-cut fries.

Specializing in hamburgers and cheeseburgers, the menu may not be extensive but once you've tasted their specially made buns, thick patties and golden fries, you'll realize you don't need anything else. Five Guys uses only fresh ground beef and doesn't even allow freezers in their restaurants in order to provide customers with an almost out-of-body burger experience.
