5 Guys Burger
This chain has been popping up all everywhere — there are over 1,000 locations nationwide. Find out what you should order when you stop by this booming burger and fry joint.

ORDER: Simple and “Little”

It’s tough to navigate this predominately high-calorie and high-sodium menu if you’re trying to stick to a healthy eating plan but it is possible.

If you’re itching for the Five Guys famous burger, the Bunless Little Hamburger is your best bet with 220 calories, 17 grams of fat, and 50 milligrams of sodium. Ask for veggie toppings like mushrooms, green peppers, onions, jalapeno, lettuce and tomatoes for between 3 to 10 calories each per serving.

If you’re more of a hot dog fan, the Bunless Hot Dog weighs in at 285 calories, 26 grams of fat and 800 milligrams sodium. Again, add veggies to add bulk to your meal with minimal calories.

Looking for a meatless dish? The Veggie Sandwich has 440 calories, 15 grams fat, and 1040 mg sodium.

NOT: Dressed-Up Burgers, Dogs and Fries

One of the highest calorie culprits on the menu is the Bacon Cheeseburger with 920 calories, 62 grams of fat and 1,310 milligrams of sodium – that’s 57% of your daily recommended max of sodium. And that’s before you add in the fries and soda.

You may want to think twice about grabbing Five Guys fries. Even the Little Fries are brimming with calories and fat with 526 and 23 grams, respectively. The Large Fry has an unbelievable 1,314 calories, 57 grams of fat and 1,327 milligrams of sodium. If you’re in the mood for French fries, your best bet is to split the Little size with 2 or 3 buddies. Also, for those allergic to peanuts the Five Guys website states that all fries are cooked in peanut oil.
