Five Guys is known for their hefty burgers and generous servings of fries. They also let customers customize anything from their menu, resulting in a number of creative secret menu items. We tried six of the most popular Five Guys secret menu items we found on the internet, including the double grilled cheeseburger, patty melt, burger bowl, the Presidential, steak frites, and In-N-Out Animal Style. Following is a transcript of the video.
AJ: What’s up, guys! We’re heading to Five Guys today and we’re going to check out some things on their secret menu. Five Guys is really cool because you can actually customize pretty much anything on their menu. So, let’s check it out!
What we’re trying: Double Grilled Cheese Burger Patty Melt Burger Bowl The Presidential Steak Frites In-N-Out Animal Style
Double Grilled Cheese Burger
Double Grilled Cheese Burger = 1 cheeseburger between 2 grilled cheeses
AJ: The grilled cheese is so thick and strong as the bun, that it’s like this light, meaty taste with some tomatoes and lettuce, and it’s so good, I love it.
Patty Melt = 1 cheeseburger inside a grilled cheese
AJ: [It’s] basically grilled cheese with a twist. This one’s a little small and skimpy. I like me a big, thick burger. Everyone knows what a patty melt is. If you ask for it, they can just make it.
Burger Bowl = bun-less burger in a tin
AJ: It’s like eating a salad… that’s actually a burger.
Since there’s no bun, the burger bowl is low-carb and keto diet friendly.
AJ: It’s great!
President Obama always got the same order at Five Guys. It became known as “The Presidential”. It’s a regular cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeño peppers, and mustard.
AJ: They had no idea what I was talking about when I ordered this burger. I asked for a ‘Presidential’, I’m pretty sure the other guy laughed, and I just had to tell them what was in the burger.
AJ: Can I [get] The Presidential? The one Obama orders?
Cashier: I don’t know what that is.
AJ: Look at this cheese though, that’s crazy! When a burger has cheese like that, you can’t be mad at it. I can see why Obama orders this burger every time. It’s very good. It’s just flavorful.
Steak Frites = burger patty with fries and A1 sauce
AJ: It’s not bad… I probably put a little bit too much A1 sauce on it.
In-N-Out Animal Style
AJ: We’re going to try to recreate In-N-Out’s animal style sauce, and try it out on this burger.
AJ: It’s really close. It’s almost animal style. I think the sauce takes away from the burger’s flavor. Five Guys, again, just has really good, flavorful burgers in my opinion. If I came back, I probably wouldn’t put the sauce on my burger. I would probably dip a couple bites into the sauce, or use the sauce for my fries.
AJ: Wow, that was a lot of fun. I just tried the most popular items on Five Guys’ secret menu and honestly I don’t think there’s much you can do to a Five Guys patty to make it taste bad. If you’re trying to treat yourself, you can get a double grilled cheeseburger because it’s two grilled cheese buns. Or, for a healthier option, you can get the keto friendly burger bowl. Alright guys, until the next one!
