Based on reviews here I watched the food prep like a hawk. Everything was done right. The cashier who took our order and confirmed the allergy procedure was the one who assembled our burger bowls.
They are not very careful with cross contamination at this location. I had to watch them like a hawk and still saw them grab hamburger buns and then grab the lettuce for our lettuce wraps. I got sick from here.
Called to ask about GF prep and the manager told me his mother has celiac and listed off all the precautions, very sympathetic and knowledgeable! That said, it’s a lot of $ for just a burger patty (they no longer carried gf buns here when I went.)
So far in three visits my needs have been met. They have even put my fries and burger in separate bags to further prevent cross contamination. One of the workers even said his mother has celiac and frequents there. I feel confident at this point but I’m also always on guard and watching. They will also gladly remake the order if you feel unsure.
Burgers are made on separate grill from buns. Fries are gluten free. However, when I was asking if the fries are gluten free and making sure nothing else was fried in the frier, one of the workers felt the need to explain to me that gluten is just flour. Switched gloves but then rested gloved hands in bread crumbs on counter before touching gf burger. Will try another five guys but won't go back to this one.
Cross contamination... Yes, everything is GF except for the buns. Doesn't help when the buns are put on the same grill as the burgers.
My husband told the person at the register we had a gluten allergy on two of the burgers we ordered. They always put them in a separate bag. When my husband got home all the burgers were in one bag and mine had cheese even after my husband said no dairy. I called the manager Avery and he said “sorry, we are so busy “ He offered to remake it, but living 20 minutes away, we just threw it in the trash. So disappointed. The places I xan safely eat at are becoming less and less. Not sure why management doesn’t take an extra 10 minutes to train employees. Grrrrr.

We have ordered here before and thought it was somewhat safe. Tonight we had a horrible experience. My husband went in to order and pick up. He told the person at the register that the burger was to be gf and df because his wife has an allergy. They always put mine in a separate bag because of this. He came home with one bag, and mine had cheese on it. Also touching the other burgers that had buns. When I called and talked to Avery the manger, he said “sorry we are busy” Wow!!! I will never go back in there again. Very disappointed.
He did offer to remake, but we live 20 minutes away.

my lettuce wrap Was mostly lettuce with two small half dollar pieces of. Meat. One employee was playing drums with my silverware before putting it in my bag. I have had better meals at mc Donald's for the cost and was very disappointed

I will get a burger in a bowl and fries and have never had any issues. I believe I asked about gluten free/celiac disease items awhile ago and they can do the glove change/grill wipe. They do a good job at keeping items separated regardless too.
