Five Guys Secret Menu

Five Guys Secret Menu

Just remember, if it’s not available by name, just ask for the specific substitutions or variations when ordering.

Patty Melt

The Patty Melt is a hamburger and grilled cheese fusion creation with American-style cheese grilled onions and a beef patty between a grilled inside-out sesame seed bun. You can customize it further by adding any topping or sauce to the sandwich.

Ask for a grilled cheese with a burger patty, grilled onions instead of caramelized onions, and anything else you want in the patty melt.

Double Grilled Cheeseburger

The Double Grilled Cheeseburger takes the patty melt to the next level. This creation is TWO grilled cheese sandwiches with a beef patty or patties in between the sandwiches plus any of the other free toppings you choose to add.

Order two Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and ask to put however many beef patties and any toppings between the two.

In-N-Out Animal Style

You don’t have to go to In-N-Out just to get an animal style burger. Just order a cheeseburger with grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and pickles and make your own sauce…

To create the special In-N-Out sauce, combine mayo, ketchup, and relish, mix well and spread onto your burger.

Add the sauce on top of your fries and you have animal style fries.

The Artery Annihilator

The Artery Annihilator originated from Reddit and it involves a hot dog, beef patty and bacon, hence the name.

To order, ask for a bacon cheeseburger with a halved hot dog served on top. Plus, choose any of your favorite toppings.

The HB Slammer

This is really one of the more than 250,000 different ways you can order a burger but since it’s fairly popular AND has its own name, we’ll list it here.

If you order a Bacon Cheeseburger with some extra bacon, mayonnaise, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, grilled jalapeños, hot sauce, and A.1. sauce, you’ll have The HB Slammer.

Presidential Burger

Again, this is a way to order a burger but this time it’s the same way President Obama has ordered it.

Order a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeño peppers, and mustard and you have the Presidential Burger.

Sloppy Joe

A classic Sloppy Joe has ground beef, onion, and bell pepper in a tomato sauce served on toasted buns.

To recreate this family dinner classic order a burger with grilled onions and green peppers, ketchup, & Bar-B-Que Sauce.

Vegetarian “BLT”

The traditional BLT on the menu comes with strips of crispy apple-wood smoked bacon, fresh tomato slices, mayo, and hand-shredded lettuce on a toasted sesame seed bun.

To order a vegetarian BLT, ask for a traditional BLT and simply ask them to substitute the bacon with grilled mushrooms. Optionally, add jalapeños for some crunch and spiciness and American cheese for a little vegetarian protein.

Burger Bowl

This keto hack allows you to order any burger bunless and it will be served in an aluminum bowl with the hamburger patty and all the keto-friendly toppings.

List of Five Guys Keto Toppings: A.1. Sauce, Green Peppers, Green Peppers, Grilled Mushrooms, Hot Sauce, Jalapeños, Lettuce, Mayonnaise, Mustard, Onions, Pickles, Relish, Tomatoes.

Simply ask for a burger bowl when you place your order.

Lettuce Wrap

Another keto menu option, make it bunless again by getting a burger and all the toppings wrapped in lettuce.

Simply order any burger you want and ask for a lettuce wrap. Ask for a double lettuce wrap and you’ll contain all your toppings even better.

Add peanuts for a Thai Lettuce Wrap.

Chip Butty

A Chip Butty is basically a french fry sandwich that is topped with condiments such as brown sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, or malt vinegar. This keto-unfriendly creation hails from England where chips are the equivalent of French Fries and a butty is English slang for a sandwich.

To order a Chip Butty, ask for a Little order of fries inside an untoasted bun, and top the butty with ketchup and/or mayonnaise, and malt vinegar. Yes, Five Guys has malt vinegar, try splashing your fries in malt vinegar too!

Jalapeño Popper Sandwich

Jalapeño Poppers are filled with cheese, wrapped in bacon and grilled or fried.

To order a Five Guys style Jalapeño Popper ask for a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, jalapeños and extra cheese.

Chicago Style Hot Dog

A Chicago Style Hot Dog, also known as the Breaking Windy City Hot Dog, is loaded with yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, tomatoes, onions, dill pickles, and peppers.

You can recreate this classic Chicago-style hot dog by ordering a hot dog topped with mustard, relish, tomatoes, onions, pickles, hot sauce, and green peppers.

Cheese Fries

Cheese fries are simply American-style cheese on top of your regular or Cajun style cheese fries.

Order the type and size of your fries and request melted cheese on top. Not all locations will do this and most will charge about .50 cents, if they do.

Add jalapeños and onion for nacho-style cheese fries.

Extra Well Done Fries

The fries are already made crispy but if you want extra crispy fries simply request “well done” fries and they’ll get a few extra minutes in the peanut oil.

Steak Frites

Steak frites means “steak [and] fries” in French, and is a dish consisting of steak paired with french fries.

Ask for an order of fries and a burger patty, season with salt and pepper and add A.1. steak sauce or use as a dipper.

Pro Tip: Extra cheese and bacon is free! You just have to have ordered bacon and/or cheese in the first place.
