The Five Guys menu of hamburgers, kosher-style hot dogs, vegetable sandwiches, and grilled cheese sandwiches are widely considered among the best in the country. Aside from the on-menu food items, you can also order these five items on the Five Guys secret menu, meaning the patties, hotdogs and vegetables are served on sweeter buns. Even the fresh-cut French fries, which are the only side item available, are distinguished from the competitors since these are seasoned in two ways, namely, Cajun and Five Guys style.
But a word of warning: If you have an allergy to peanuts, including peanut oil, then you should avoid the Five Guys restaurants, as they fry everything in peanut oil and serve customers bowls of roasted peanuts while they wait for their meal.
For dessert, you can choose from more than 20 flavors of milkshakes. You can even mix and match several flavors in your customized milkshake, not to mention that you can also add bacon bits to it. Talk about milkshake heaven!
The Five Guys’ fresh-cut French fries are already treats on their own, thanks to their crunchy texture and delicious flavor. Add melted cheese to the mix and you have an explosion of flavor with each bite – the crunchy texture contrasts with the soft gooey texture of the melted cheese. You will want to finish the mountain of fries before even biting into your burger. Cheese fries go for as little as 50 cents extra per although you may also be lucky and get them for free. How cool is that?
Five Guys restaurants take pride in their non-soggy French Fries, too. The crunchy texture comes from the fresh-cut French fries being fried twice – yes, twice – in peanut oil. You can go one step further in your quest for extra-crispy fries by requesting for them to be well done, like the steak. Just make sure to take out these French fries out of their cup to maintain their crispiness while you dig in.
You have thousands of options for customizing your burger, whether you are an all-meat type, a vegetarian, or somewhere in between. Even President Barack Obama had his own customized Five Guys burger visited one of its restaurants. His order: A zesty combination of a regular cheeseburger with the addition of tomato, lettuce, jalapeno peppers, and pickles with mustard on top. You can also add the A-1 sauce, sautéed onions, and onion rings for even more flavor – why not? After all, Five Guys makes hamburgers worthy of the president.
Are you a vegetarian, but want to try a Five Guys burger? Order the veggie burger, which is a combination of the regular burger topping options on a Five Guys bun as well as your choice of vegetable fillings. Ask your server about the available vegetable fixings so that you can adjust as desired.
You can go straight to food heaven and back with Five Guys’ patty melt. Think about it: A Five Guys’ juicy beef patty with its tender texture and savory flavor mashed between two grilled slices of bread with butter at the core of their extra goodness. Add grilled onions and melted cheese, and you have a patty melt that, as Olaf says it, is worth melting for. You can have two or more patties in your order, add more toppings, or ask for more melted cheese. Throw well-done fries into your order and you have the crispiness of the fries contrasting nicely with the soft and savory texture of the patty melt.
Double Grilled Cheeseburger
What’s a trip to the restaurant chain if someone in your group does not order the not-so-secret item on the Five Guys secret menu – the double grilled cheeseburger? This is your best choice when you want to go over the top. Instead of the regular grilled cheese toppings, you will get two – yes, two – separate grilled sandwiches sandwiched into a single serving – or perhaps, to share if you really like the person you came with.
Bring in the guys and the girls to a Five Guys restaurant and start enjoying these secret menu options.
