Hello! Welcome to Beyond Soy!
Five Guys is one of our favorite places to stop in for a bite to eat when we are on the road. Why? Because they have a very clear allergen menu and it is easy to get a soy-free meal!
What really helps us to eat at Five Guys is that they have a fairly simple menu. They focus on burgers, hot dogs, and fries, which means it is more straightforward to find soy-free food because there are fewer options to sort through. Additionally, their burger toppings are quite simple (i.e., not a lot of fancy sauces) so they tend to have few ingredients.
So what is soy-free at Five Guys? Almost everything! The unfortunate thing is that their hot dogs and buns contain soy, so you'll have to order a lettuce wrap burger. But, the fries are soy-free and all of the toppings except mayonnaise are soy-free. We've found that a lettuce wrap burger and fries makes for a great (albeit a little messy) meal!
When it comes to dessert, you'll need to be careful with the shake mix-ins. We stick to traditional flavors of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry, but peanut butter, coffee, and banana are also soy-free.
As a whole, the Five Guys allergen menu is extremely comprehensive and detailed, providing good assurance that your meal will be free of soy. Since it is easy to find soy-free food and very clear what each menu item contains, we often choose Five Guys for a soy-free meal, especially on the go.
