Recently went there and asked for a lettuce wrap. They asked if it was a preference or an allergy and when i said allergy, they went above and beyond to make sure there was no cross contamination. I had no issues after eating there and my lettuce wrap was great! Of course i miss eating it with the bun but still yummy !

I’ve eaten here twice a week for the past month (gross I know) but I never get sick. When I request a lettuce wrap they ask me if it is an allergy (yes) and they are extremely careful and friendly. Love 5 guys.

Celiac friendly?

Yes

this is the only burger that allows for those allergic to gluten to enjoy as close to normal as possible. Letting them know of your allergy , thru will make your burger in a lettuce wrap instead.

I was optimistic about this place after reading reviews, but somehow I was sick after eating here. Too many possibilities for cc here, unfortunately. I'm extremely sensitive so others might fare better.

A regular cheeseburger here is seven dollars. The regular fries, which is very large, is 3.50. And a soda is two more dollars. One hot dog with cheese and no bun is almost 5 dollars by itself. So you can easily spend $12 or more for one person, and for that they serve you food in a greasy paper bag. And you have to sit under bright fluorescent lights. The food is good but not really that much better than a place like Wendy's. I'd rather pay half the price and eat off a tray at Wendy's instead of eating at five guys out of a greasy paper bag. But obviously the catch is Wendys isn't gluten-free. So that's the only reason I would eat here instead.

This location in particular is awesome. They went so far as to get toppings out of a fresh container to avoid cross-contamination. For an even better burger, go across the street to Stuyvesant Plaza first...there is a natural store that sells gf bread and rolls. We bring them in with us so my hubby can build his burgers on them.

** Reviews are for fries only**

2/20/24 Got a large order of the cajun fries only, very good but i liked the fries without seasoning better. No symptoms after.

10/2/23My non-celiac husband was getting a burger and fries, and based off of the other reviews, I decided to try the fries myself. The employees were super friendly. I ordered 1 order of the little fries not seasoned- they were phenomenal! I did not get sick

I go here often and the staff are very well trained on Celiac and allergies. I love that I can safely eat the fries as they’re the only thing fried there. So good!

It’s very pricy but they offered me a burger in a bowl or a lettuce wrap for my burger. That’s about as gluten free as they are. I’m new to this so I’m a bit disappointed

The cashier asked if it was a preference or an allergy. Proceeded to let the next person know who changed their gloves and made my food. I had a lettuce wrapped burger. The food was very safe. They only fry fries in their fryer. This place would not be safe if you have a peanut allergy. There are big bags of peanuts to snack on while you wait for your food.

Yes, the Rio Rancho location is very diligent when making the gf Lettuce Rap hamburgers. Just let them know and they will clear/ clean the prep area and change out gloves. My daughter, who has Celiacs, never has an issue coming here.
