Vegan Options at Five Guys (Updated 2021)

Vegan Options at Five Guys

Five guys keeps a pretty limited menu to begin with and the vegan options are limited to, well, fries. According to the Five Guy’s website – “the fries are just plain potatoes cooked in 100% peanut oil and are suitable for even vegan diets.” So even though you can only grab fries, they are some of the best fries in all of fast food.

Here is everything vegan at Five Guys.

Five Guys Vegan FAQ

Are Five Guys Fries vegan?

Yes! …and fried without ANY animal product in peanut oil.

Is the Five Guys veggie burger vegan?

First, the veggie burger isn’t a burger, it’s a veggie sandwich. The veggie sandwich at Five Guys consists of grilled onions, mushrooms, and green peppers, layered with lettuce and tomatoes, on a soft toasted bun. The problem is, the toasted bun contains milk and eggs. So, the veggie sandwich at Five Guys is not vegan.

Does Five Guys have the Impossible Burger?

No. Would be cooler if they did though. Seriously, Five Guys does not offer any vegan burger options whether it’s the Impossible Burger or the Beyond Burger.
