Five Guys Burgers and Fries to Open in Newton and Brockton

After a bit of a lull, a chain of burger places is expanding once again through the Greater Boston area, with at least two new locations on the way.

According to its website, Five Guys Burgers and Fries is planning to open in Newton and Brockton, with the Newton location coming to 215 Needham Street and the Brockton location coming to Westgate Drive. These will be the first new Five Guys to come to the region in awhile, with the last ones opening in Waltham and Boston (by Northeastern University) in 2013.

There don't appear to be specific opening dates for either the Newton or the Brockton location of the chain, with their website simply saying that both are "coming soon."

[August 15 update: The Brockton location of Five Guys is now open.]

November 18 update: According to a poster on the Chowhound site (and confirmed by the chain's Facebook page), the new location of Five Guys in Newton is now open, having apparently opened yesterday.]

The website for Five Guys can be found at

Thanks to a source for initially bringing this to our attention.
