Vegan Options at Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Five Guys Burger and Fries is a popular American fast food restaurant chain that now has restaurants around the world. Their main menu focuses on you guessed it, burgers, fries and some hotdogs.

As the fast food restaurant mainly serves burgers, you may be wondering if there are many or any vegan options available. 

You may be surprised to find that there are actually only 3 vegan friendly options available for you at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

The restaurant offers allergen information and ingredient lists on their menu and online on their website, if you are looking to do the research yourself, however we have gathered the most vegan friendly options for you! 

If you look at the Five Guys Burgers and Fries menus yourself, you may notice that there is a Veggie Sandwich available. Whilst this sounds like it may be suitable for a vegan diet and lifestyle, the bun actually contains egg and milk, and so it is unsuitable for vegetarians and vegans. 

You can order the Veggie Sandwich without the bun, however the grilled mushrooms, onions and tomatoes may be grilled on the same cooktop as the burgers, and so there may be a risk of cross contamination. Simply ask your server how it is cooked to see if the option is right for you.

Therefore, there are actually only three vegan options at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. These are the dishes that are completely 100% vegan, found in this article below.

The Only 3 Vegan Options at Five Guys Burgers and Fries

Regular French Fries

The first of the three vegan options is the Five Guys French Fries. These fries are made with potatoes, 100% peanut oil and a little seasoning, therefore, they are completely 100% vegan.

As there are only potatoes and peanut oil included in the ingredients, you do not have to worry if they are vegan or not.

In addition, there is no risk of cross contamination, as no other food products are fried in the same deep fat fryer as the french fries. The Five Guys Burgers and Fries are also only tossed in salt, and are made with no additional flavorings or ingredients that are not vegan.

As these fries are made in the same way as the regular fries, and just topped with spices, they are completely vegan, too. Also, they are not cross contaminated with any other meat products, and so can be eaten freely without worrying about whether they are vegan or not!
