Why does Five Guys only serve burgers cooked well done?

We understand that there are varying opinions on what level a burger should be cooked for optimal flavor and our opinion is that our burgers taste best cooked juicy and well done.

By cooking all our burgers juicy and well done we are able to achieve ensure a consistent product.

Does Five Guys serve organic or free range beef?
While our beef is neither organic nor are the cattle free range, our beef comes high-quality suppliers that work directly with a select group of quality assured farms in Switzerland to ensure the beef meets our exacting standards while having a strong focus on animal welfare sustainable production methods.
What type of beef do Five Guys use?

To guarantee our customers have the same Five Guys burger they love, no matter where they have it, we must be sure our patty is consistent.

Our beef consists of 100% 80/20 ground beef with no additives, fillers, or preservatives.

To ensure we get that same great flavor profile all year round, our beef is 120-day grain-finished. Our beef is always fresh, never frozen, and we serve our patties juicy and well done.

Do you offer any food which is suitable for vegetarians?
Yes, to a certain extent. Our veggie sandwich and grilled cheese sandwiches are suitable for lacto-ovo vegetarians. One thing to take note of is that our veggie sandwich is NOT a veggie burger. Our veggie sandwich consists of as many "veggie" toppings as you desire and served on our basic bun. You can add cheese if you please. Our bread is toasted, but usually on a separate grill from meat products. However, there is always a chance for cross contamination, so please check at the individual location where you are ordering to be certain. Finally, our fries are just plain potatoes cooked in 100% peanut oil and are suitable for even vegan diets.
Do any Five Guys products contain soy or dairy?

Our rolls contain both soy and dairy as do some of our milkshake mix-ins. Our cheese and milkshakes are dairy products and our hot-dogs contain soy. Full nutrition and allergen information is available on our menu page.

Where can I find nutritional information on Five Guys food?
Our nutritional information is listed right on this site. Get a copy of our nutritional guide and you will find the nutritional information broken out by ingredient type so that you can build your burger!
What type of peanut oil does Five Guys use?
We use 100% peanut oil that is refined and contains only enough preservatives (less than .004%, so that the oil doesn't foam when we put our fries in!).
Why can't we take peanuts outside?
Although it is rare that a casual encounter with peanuts will cause an allergic reaction, we want to limit the risk of someone unknowingly coming into contact with peanuts.
If so many people are allergic to peanuts, why does Five Guys continue to offer them?
Over the past 20 years, peanuts have become part of the Five Guys identity. We by no means want to exclude guests from our store, but at the same time we would not want to disappoint our peanut eating guests. We make sure that we have signage on our doors and in our restaurants about the fact that we serve peanuts in bulk containers as we would never want someone to risk their health by coming into our restaurants.
Is Five Guys a Publicly Traded Company?
Five Guys is a privately owned company and we do not currently have plans to go public. However, we get these questions a lot and we take it as a compliment, thank you!
Does Five Guys Cater?
Unfortunately, we do not cater. We can accommodate large orders though but suggest that you call ahead into your local store.
Does Five Guys offer Gift cards?

We do not currently sell gift cards outside the United States.

How can I find out when a store near me will be open?
Five Guys is constantly opening new locations across the nation and we do our best to list stores that are opening within the next few months on our website. Unfortunately, we can rarely predict the exact date that a store will open until just a few days prior, so we are not able to provide actual opening dates.
Does Five Guys offer coupons or discounts?
Five Guys does not offer any coupons or discounts. Heck, employees at the Five Guys can only get free burgers if they are working in the store! Why? We strive to serve the highest quality product possible, at a reasonable price, everyday! We do not discount the price of our product because we refuse to discount the quality of our product.
Is there a place to buy Five Guys T-shirts?
We're sorry, but our online store is currently unavailable outside the United States. We do NOT sell t-shirts, hats etc. in our stores as we like to make sure we are focused on the most important part of the Five Guys experience… the burgers and fries!
