Five Guys Burgers and Fries Is Opening in Downtown Boston

A chain of burger places with a number of locations in the Boston area is getting ready to open its first restaurant in Boston proper.

According to a job post on the Craigslist site, Five Guys Burgers and Fries is planning to open on Summer Street, with a retail update page from The Downtown Boston Business Improvement District indicating that it will apparently be moving into the space where a location of the McDonald's chain used to be. This will be the first Five Guys to open within the Boston city limits, with the closest location to downtown Boston currently being in Medford.

[January 17, 2012 update: According to Eater Boston, Five Guys hopes to open their downtown Boston location in either June or July.]

[July 25, 2012 update: Five Guys is one step closer to opening in downtown Boston, as EveryBlock Boston posts that the burger place has received a business license to operate.]

[November 15 update: A message sent to us from Five Guys indicates that the new location in downtown Boston will be opening on Monday, November 19.]

[November 15 update #2: A newer message from Five Guys mentions that they were incorrect with the above opening date. It will actually be opening on Saturday, November 17.]

In addition to its Medford location, Five Guys Burgers and Fries can also be found in Canton, Dedham, Foxborough, Framingham, Gloucester, Hanover, Marlborough, Natick, Randolph, Saugus, Stoneham, Swampscott, and Walpole. New locations are also coming to Burlington and Chelsea soon.

The address for this new burger place in downtown Boston is: Five Guys Burgers and Fries, 58 Summer Street, Boston, MA, 02110. The website for the burger chain can be found at:
