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.

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.
