AWESOME!! Had plain fries and a cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce with onions. Did not get sick at all. Plus the burger was so tasty!! I have celiac disease. So far in Ocean City Maryland has been super hard to find someplace open that's gf this time of year. I highly recommend Five guys as they are gf at home in Pittsburgh PA also 😁💗

Wife has celiacs and I heard they were knowledgeable about food allergies. Walked in and asked cashier about gluten free options and she looked like she never heard the word before. Walked right back out.

Thank you five guys! Allergy protocol is taken seriously and I watched as one cook made my entire order from start to finish with clean gloves and a clean workspace. They get it, and I didn't get sick after eating here multiple times. Fries are good too but I wish they were crispier :)

Nice quick meal. No worries when you're eating the fries. Employees don't always care but with a little research on their site or common knowledge you'll be fine.

My very sensitive Celiac kid was able to eat a cheese burger without bun and fries without any reaction. Staff changed gloves to avoid cross contamination.

Absolutely the most humiliating experience I have ever had. Not only was I told that I should know myself about my own allergies when inquiring about which milkshakes are gluten-free, I was told repeatedly to have a 'blessed day' when I told that employee he should be fired. Really, now my religion is an issue? (Of Note: this is the 2nd similar experience at a Five Guys). Why have GF options when the employees DGAF?

A pretty safe bet for the occasional burger and fries for my celiac daughter. You can choose a lettuce wrap or aluminum foil tin-- the tin makes it easier to eat toppings than the bun ever did in pre-GF days, so it works well.

Five Guys is soooooooo food allergy friendly! The staff is very understanding of a gluten free diet and even said "food allergies are nothing to mess with!" They only fry french fries and they use separate grills for burgers and buns, so no cross contamination!

Friendly personnel, understaffed and overworked.. bathrooms were either closed (women) or filthy (men). Feel bloated after eating a burger in lettuce roll. Meat was average. Will NOT go to this 5guys again

I have celiac disease, and I explained to them about having a very serious allergy. I asked them to please change gloves and minimize cross contamination. I went with someone who did not have a gluten free order. They threw all of our fries in the bag that was not gluten free, which cross contaminated my fries. I was disappointed, and I was just going to throw them out, but we decided to go up and explain to them that they cross contaminated the fries. We asked if we could have a new batch. They proceeded to argue with us about how the fries were fine. Ultimately, they gave us new fries, after an argument over why it was cross contamination. That situation embarrassed me, and I will not be back. They also do not have gluten free buns, so you just get a greasy burger patty with some fries -- full price. There are so many burger joints out there that are informed of allergy protocols and offer gluten free these days -- bun and all, so this would be at the bottom of my list.

Only the buns have gluten per website. Not gluten free bun option but a no bun or lettuce wrap is available. Only fries prepared in the fire so safe to eat.

Caution ordering Mayo on burger since it is spread with a knife that could be contaminated with other orders but other sauces are prepared with squeeze bottle.

My order was tagged with “gluten allergy” and I observed the employee change gloves and complete my order from start to finish safely. Very impressed during the busy dinner time order rush!
