Handcrafted burger and fries since 1986. Five Guys has been a Washington DC, area favorite since 1986 when Jerry and Janie Murrell offered sage advice to the four young Murrell brothers: “Start a business or go to college.” The business route won and the Murrell family opened a carry-out burger joint in Arlington Virginia. Under the guidance of Jerry and Janie the Murrell family served only hand-formed burgers cooked to perfection on a grill along with fresh-cut fries cooked in pure peanut oil.
FIVE GUYS FACTS:
They only use fresh ground beef.
They only use peanut oil.
There are no freezers in Five Guys locations, just coolers.
