The first thing you’re going to have to do in order to eat keto at Five Guys is to say goodbye to those delicious french fries. It’s tough, but it must be done.

Now that you’ve pushed those delicious french fries to the back of your mind, let’s talk about what low-carb options you have at Five Guys.

Keto Options at Five Guys Burgers and Fries

So in order to go keto at Five Guys, you’re going to need to order one of their burgers or hot dogs minus the bun. So you still get to enjoy the delicious hamburger patty or hot dog wiener, just minus the buns. That’s right, a bunless burger. Which, let’s be real, the hamburger patty and the wiener are the good part.

You can get your burger as a lettuce wrap or just by itself in a burger bowl. Both are fine options.

Bunless Options at Five Guys

  • Hamburger
  • Cheeseburger
  • Bacon Burger
  • Bacon Cheeseburger
  • Little Hamburger
  • Little Cheeseburger
  • Little Bacon Burger
  • Little Bacon Cheeseburger
  • Hot Dog
  • Cheese Dog
  • Bacon Dog
  • Bacon Cheese Dog

You may be wondering what kind of cheese you can put on your Five Guys bunless burger. American cheese only at Five Guys. While I’m not wild about American cheese, it works. The same thing with your bacon cheese dog, it comes with American cheese by default.

As you can see, there are plenty of keto options available to you even at a fast food restaurant like Five Guys as long as you go with a bunless burger or hot dog.

Up next, you’ll need to order some toppings. Five Guys doesn’t mess around when it comes to toppings so you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to keto-friendly toppings. Remember, these can be used as burger toppings or hot dog toppings. Five Guys is not like your traditional hot dog joint. They’ll let you throw anything on there. You can get a hot dog served with bacon, cheese, green peppers and grilled onions. And, speaking from experience, do not sleep on that bacon cheese dog.

Five Guys Burger and Hot Dog Low Carb Toppings

  • Mayo
  • Mustard
  • Hot Sauce
  • Relish
  • Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Pickles
  • Tomatoes
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Grilled Green Peppers
  • Grilled Mushrooms
  • Grilled Onions
  • Extra Burger Patty

That’s basically every Five Guys toppings they have. The only thing we left off is ketchup, A1 and barbeque sauce.

Five Guys Keto Side Dish

Since you can’t get french fries you might be thinking you’re out of luck when it comes to a low carb side dish at Five Guys. Go ahead and grab you a big handful of roasted peanuts that you see all over the place inside this fine establishment. You don’t want more than a handful of these roasted peanuts, but it’s okay to have some when you’re on a low-carb diet.

My Go-To Five Guys Keto Order – The Double Bacon Cheeseburger

Now that you’ve seen all of your options for your Five Guys keto burger I’m going to share the perfect low-carb meal I get. Here’s my keto burger of choice:

  • Bacon Cheeseburger
  • Add an extra hamburger patty
  • Grilled Mushrooms
  • Grilled Onions
  • Lettuce (Make mine a lettuce wrap so I can pick it up)
  • Tomatoes
  • Pickles
  • Mayo

That may seem like a lot of toppings for a burger, but you gotta remember you’re going bunless. Two beef patties and the delicious smoked bacon will fill up the biggest appetite. And anytime grilled mushrooms are an option I can’t say no. Some may view that as a controversial opinion.

Conclusion – Five Guys on Keto is an Option

While it may be difficult to not order fries when you’re at Five Guys and you will miss the burger bun for sure, you can have a delicious low-carb meal at Five Guys with great macros.

Crock Pot BBQ Chicken

Crockpot bbq chicken pin

This mouthwatering Crockpot BBQ Chicken is fantastic way to spice up your dull weekly menus. It will take 5 hours to cook  and you can store it refrigerated for up to 4 days. I usually use this shredded BBQ chicken and fill some buns, add lettuce, onions and tomato, to make a healthy version of burgers. You can also use tortillas instead of buns.

Ingredients

  •  1 1/2 cups  Homemade BBQ Sauce — or your favorite store-bought sauce (the homemade sauce only takes about 15 minutes to make and is totally worth it!)
  •  2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  •  1 tablespoon cornstarch — mixed with 1 tablespoon water to make a slurry
  •  Serving suggestions: whole wheat or pretzel buns — whole wheat tortillas, cheddar cheese, chopped green onion, baked sweet potatoes

Crock pot bbq chicken

Instructions

  1. If you have not, prepare the Homemade BBQ Sauce.
  2. Lightly coat a 5-quart or larger slow cooker with nonstick spray. Arrange the chicken in a single layer on the bottom of the slow cooker. Top with sauce, spooning the sauce all over the top. If you made a batch of the Homemade BBQ Sauce, reserve the rest for serving.
  3. Cover the slow cooker, and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 4 to 5 hours on low, until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove the chicken to a cutting board and shred with two forks, either on a cutting board or directly in the slow cooker.
  4. Thicken the sauce in the slow cooker: Add the slurry to the slow cooker with the remaining sauce. Whisk to combine, cover the slow cooker, and set to high. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 30 minutes.
  5. To thicken the sauce more quickly: Transfer the sauce to a medium saucepan. Whisk in the slurry, and then cook on the stovetop over medium heat, stirring often until the sauce thickens, 5 to 10 minutes. (If your slow cooker insert is stovetop safe, you can remove it from the slow cooker and place it directly on the burner, but do not do this unless you are POSITIVE your insert is stovetop safe or it may crack).
  6. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker and toss to coat. Serve chicken warm on buns for sandwiches, inside quesadillas, or (our favorite) on top of a baked sweet potato with a sprinkle of green onion. Add additional BBQ sauce as desired.
