As a celiac, I get a cheeseburger on a lettuce bun, and their fries. Staff always asks if I need special preparation with new gloves, etc which I find comforting. Have never been glutened after eating here.

The staff was incredibly knowledgeable about Celiac cooking and was able to provide a gluten-free burger & fries that tasted great and did not make anyone sick from cross-contamination. They wrapped the burger and toppings in a lettuce bun that was crispy, fresh, & tasty. The fries also had their own fryer so there was no concern there.

When I went here I was told only thing they do different to make gluten free was a lettuce wrap instead of bun. Really wish they would offer a bun as well as know for sure if their fries are gluten free

No issues with gluten with the fries or burgers made in a dish, but other locations have been hit or miss with cross contamination so just be careful when ordering and always mention for a gluten allergy.

I researched the allergy menu on-line and then ordered a burger lettuce wrap with tomato and pickles, small fries, water bottle. I informed them it was gluten free for an allergy. They did an amazing job and it was a safe, great meal! Just be sure to tell them it’s an allergy so they employ their allergy protocol.

On Quality & Quantity

since the fryers only cook fries there is minimal risk of cross contamination, unless a bun fell in the fryer. They serve the burgers in a lettuce wrap or foil wrap. Our daughter has celiacs and this is one of the places in town we have never had an issue eating and we have eaten here many times. They often ask if you are intolerant or celiacs and make sure that if it is celiacs it is noted and processed accordingly.

My 6 year old with Celiac doesn’t LOVE lettuce wraps but Five Guys will put his burger and toppings in a bowl which is more kid friendly. They actually asked me if it was an allergy or preference and when I said allergy they notified all the staff and went above and beyond to make sure it was safe. His food came in a completely separate bag marked with an allergy sticker.

Has been a reliable location for us, note an allergy at time of order and that glove change is needed. As with other stores can watch food prep being done if you need to be certain.

When I went there I asked if there was a protocol for gluten free for a celiac and he had all the right answers. I say him getting buns ready and using the same gloves to touch the fries then touching the inside of my bad that my food was going into. I mentioned that I didn’t feel comfortable eating it and the employee got angry and argued with me so I didn’t want any of my food. This may be a one time occurrence but I wouldn’t risk it.

The staff was extremely knowledgeable on celiac. When I asked if I could have my burger wrapped in lettuce they asked if it was for an allergy when I told them yes they changed their gloves and I heard with my own ears them ask twice if “this burger was for the gluten allergy” I was extremely impressed. Will be returning

The staff kept calling out that it was an allergy order and one person shepherded it through and people called out while they changed gloves and they said the fries were made separately and fresh. I had a choice of lettuce wrap or bowl for the burger and they put all the toppings in my lettuce wrap- a lot of lettuce- started by hand then switched to fork and knife!

I visited five guys today and I bought their regular fries and Cajun fries ... they were absolutely delicious and 100% gluten free. Fries are the only food that goes into the fryer. I told the staff I was celiac. The cook washed his hands, changed his gloves & did not service the other customers until my fries were ready. I’m SO happy.

Five guys does a great job! They always ask me if my lettuce wrapped burger is allergy or preference. When I state allergy they move to a separate work space and change gloves to prep it. French fries are the only thing they fry in the baskets so never a worry about cross contamination!! Best burger around❤️

Staff is not well trained on cross contamination issues. I watched as the manager/supervisor made and wrapped two regular burgers with buns, then with the same gloves grabbed my container of fries from the top (so her entire gloved hand was touching the fries). My order was clearly marked an allergy. I spoke to the manager/supervisor as she handed me my food and politely explained to her that protocol states that she should change gloves after touching bread products. Her response was “oh ok. I guess I can make you new fries.” I declined and walked out with my food that promptly went in the trash.

Requested GF burger, staff asked by preference or allergy. I stated allergy. Top of receipt says allergy. Cook was training someone and I heard her say- "I used to cry when these came in, (point to food ticket to show trainee 'allergy') she then says "now I just stop everything, wipe down my entire surface and get new utensils and make the burger." I had NO issues, and actually loved the fact I overheard that! Kudos @FiveGuys

They do a great job at changing gloves and preparing burgers on a different foil sheet. The fries are gluten free and you can get no bun or a lettuce wrap. I never get sick eating here.

We told the gentleman taking our order that our son was celiac, he added "allergy" to the order and then turned around and told the staff members. Every person changed gloves and I watched to ensure no cross contamination- and there was none. Super friendly and understanding staff, fantastic food and it was safe!

Just tell them you are celiac and they take every precaution needed. My only suggestion, ask for new condiments for anything that is used with a spreader (mayo) to avoid the cross contact with buns.

This is the first time I’ve been able to have a burger and fries since I went gluten free! No additives or fillers in the meat, lettuce wraps or bowls available, they’re careful about cross contamination, changed gloves, marked it as an allergy, and BOY it’s so good!!!! Fries are amazing too!!

Staff was very responsive towards my request, I did have to explain which is totally normal, and the man taking my order had yelled out to everyone to clean their hands and change gloves which was very nice. Everything was great, I did have a small reaction but I think it was a cross contamination between my husbands and my food. Overall I’d love to eat there again 😀

Figured out why I got glutened here, they share the mayo spreader with the buns. Since then, when I order I remind them to use new mayo and I haven’t had a problem. They have also been very friendly and accommodating.

I ate a lettuce wrap burger and some fries. They have a dedicated fryer. The staff called my burger and allergen burger. It came in a bag separate from my family. I wasn’t sick at all after...so I call that a win! Warning:Peanut oil used

just like other 5 guys restaurants, you can get gluten free here in a lettuce bun or box but i always prefer the box just in case. the same person served me and made my order with clean gloves!

I have eaten here twice, have gotten sick once and the time after I was fine. I saw them change their gloves which was helpful but was skeptical about cross contamination with placing foil on back bar with crumbs. Just be sure to let them know you are Celiac and to keep an eye out for their protocol!

They have always been prepared as soon as I say I want a bun less burger. They clarify if it's an allergy or preference. I see them educating their workers that aren't as aware of the process. They only have limited ingredients with gluten so cross contamination is less likely. Never been sick.

The manager of this store is stellar. She took our order, labeled it ALLERGY, and told everyone else not to touch it. She prepared the order herself and seemed to be very knowledgeable about cross contamination. Five Guys is usually a good experience for us, and this was our first visit to this location. Given the care and attention paid to us, this will not be our last. They really made us feel comfortable with the food prep.

Excellent service. I am a sensitive celiac. Before ordering, I asked what precautions they take for a wheat/gluten allergy. The gal at the front was very knowledgeable. She assured me they are properly trained and that one employee would be in charge of my burger in a lettuce wrap. I watched him switch his gloves multiple times and take all proper precautions. No ill effects. They said the fries at this location are NOT gluten free.

Five Guys restaurant chain is always awesome and I have never gotten sick no matter the location. Huge bonus - you can est the fries! Fries are the only thing in their fryers so they are Gluten Free. You can order a burger either lettuce wrapped or unwrapped and add all your wanted toppings. When ordering tell them it is for a gluten allergy and they take it very seriously. They take all proper precautions to help minimize any cross contamination.
