Five Guys Customers Say Menu Prices Are 'Out of Control'

Five Guys' food is widely praised for its quality and taste, however its pricing have been criticized.

Five Guys was criticized again after a viral social media image showed how expensive it is to dine there in 2024.

A user posted a Five Guys receipt on X on March 1. The photo showed that a bacon cheeseburger, standard Coke, and small fry cost $24.10 after taxes and a $2.19 tip.

The individual who posted it, @WallStreetSilv, called Five Guys' rates "out of control"—and they weren't alone. The post has 25 million views and 12,000 X user comments

One said, "The only reason I won't go to @FiveGuys anymore," tagging the chain's X account. "Their prices are unreasonable. Local pubs provide cheaper handmade burgers."

Five Guys provides a better fast-food experience than some competitors. Beef is never frozen, ingredients are fresh, and fries are big.

However, a vocal group of consumers think $24 for any fast-food lunch is unacceptable. Many have also noted that comparable premium burger chains

I can get a Double-Double combo at In-N-Out for $12. Due to pricing, haven't been to Five Guys in years "@WallStreetSilv's X post received a remark.

Five Guys isn't the first fast-food chain criticized for costs. McDonald's was criticized in January after a customer paid $14.58 for two Egg

McMuffins, or $7.29 each. Taco Bell consumers recently complained that the Cheesy Bean & Rice Burrito has increased in price in some areas.
