Unsalted dining: Five Guys Burgers and Fries

If you need advice on salt-free friendly places, this blog is the place to be.

Well Five Guys is definitely a salt-free friendly kind of place. When I got to the counter and asked them not to salt the patty, the lady at the counter said, "We don't salt our patties." AWESOME!! (You should still ask, as other locations may have a different policy in terms of salting the patties. I asked for no salt on the fries and it was no problem for them.

Never fear: You can still get salt in ketchup and other condiments, but you will, at least, be able to cut back. Beware of the amount of sodium in condiments, but that's another story!!

The burger was delicious!!! It was hand formed, not precut and frozen!!! The fries were tender on the inside!

WARNING: PEANUT ALLERGY SUFFERERS BEWARE!!! Five Guys has peanuts as an appetizer while you wait AND cook their french fries in peanut oil. I wonder if they have epi-pens in case of emergency.

NOTE: Unsalted does not equal no sodium. There can still be sodium in the bread and condiments.
