Gimme Five Guys!

Five Guys Burgers & Fries offers a pretty helpful nutrition dining guide, but it helps even more to have a little advice from someone who’s been where you are when you’re wondering what to order. Their website and nutritional guides are truly things of beauty: clean, simple, and easy to use. I wish more restaurants offered such a seamless experience for customers!

The basics of successful keto Five Guys ordering:

    • Avoid buns, bread, milkshakes, and French fries.
    • When in doubt, leave dipping sauces and condiments out.
    • For drinks, stick with water, unsweetened iced tea, or Diet Coke products.
    • If the menu says “sugar-free”, check the nutrition guide anyway.
    • Download the free app to order ahead and skip the line: iPhone or Android

 

Please note that some condiments at Five Guys may be considered dirty keto, so enjoy based on what works best for your low-carb lifestyle!


Here’s how to order keto at Five Guys for complete burger bliss:


Keto burgers at Five Guys

“I’ll have Five Guys No Bun Bowl Burger with cheese, bacon, mayo, and jalapenos.”

Compared to a lot of burger joints, Five Guys’ menu is short and sweet. But their burgers are pretty much EVERYTHING… meaning you can also load them up with–you guessed it–everything.

Feel free to pile these on your burger:

  • Hamburger Patty: 302 Calories | 17g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 16g Protein | 0g Net Carbs

I often prefer my burgers without a lettuce wrap as I find them easier to eat that way. But if you do want one wrapped, Five Guys may be able to do that for you as well! We’re not sure if all locations will accommodate that request, but there’s no harm in asking at your local restaurant.


Keto hot dogs at Five Guys

“I’ll have a Bunless Hot Dog (in a tin). Add onions, relish, cheese, bacon, and mustard.”

Not in the mood for a burger? Try this instead! The thing I love about their hot dogs is Five Guys splits them down the center, so all the toppings stay put inside instead of sliding off to the side. This is pretty much my favorite!

Tip: Add mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and jalapenos. You won’t regret it!

  • Hot Dog: 280 Calories | 28g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 11g Protein | 0g Net Carbs
  • Bacon (2 slices): 80 Calories | 7g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 4g protein | 0g Net Carbs
  • Cheese: 70 Calories | 6g Fat | 1g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | <1g Sugar | 4g Protein | <1g Net Carbs
  • Mustard: 0 Calories | 0g Fat | 0g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 0g Protein | 0g Net Carbs

Five Guys’ relish is sweet and not the lowest-carb option, but it’s okay to enjoy in small amounts if it fits into your personal diet.

  • Pickle Relish: 16 Calories | 0g Fat | 4g Total Carbs | 0g Fiber | 3g Sugar | 0g protein | 4g Net Carbs

Hip Tip: If you really want to play it safe, it’s best to order the sauces on the side and add however much you want once you get your meal.


Wanna add a side?

five guys keto dining guide – peanuts

Instead of French fries, grab a few peanuts.

While Five Guys shares the serving size and the calories, they don’t share the carbohydrates for that serving. I grabbed the MyFitnessPal data for Texas Roadhouse salted, roasted peanuts in the same serving size and calorie amount.

Roasted/Salted Peanuts, 1 oz: 160 calories | 0g Fat | 7g Total Carbs | 3g Fiber | 0g Sugar | 7g protein | 4g Net Carbs

Although the Five Guys’ keto menu options are limited, they’re definitely about quality over quantity. Their burgers are some of the Hip team’s favorites, and luckily, with a little due diligence, you can enjoy a meal wherever your adventures take you!

Enjoy!

    Also, if you want more meat, you can add extra patties ala carte for a fairly decent price.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tip, Christi!

  2. brayyy

    be careful the mayonnaise and the mushrooms have high fructose corn syrup in them. not good for keto or any other method of eating.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for mentioning that. We sure appreciate the feedback. We have added a note above and updated the nutrition guide link.

    • Vanessa Norris

      I knowwwwwww, I was so sad to see that the mushrooms contained HFCS, seems unnecessary. 🙁
