Five Guys Grilled Cheese is Decent (And All the Toppings Are Free)

Five Guys I have never been a fan of Five Guys. There I said it. I have had their burgers 4 times now and all 4 times I found their burgers to be flavorless. I do appreciate them giving me tons of fries and extra toppings for free.

A few weeks ago I noticed that Serious Eats New York had written about their grilled cheese sandwich. I had no idea they served grilled cheese sandwiches, and thought this would be a good reason for me to try Five Guys one last time.


The best part about the grilled cheese is that just like the burgers, all the toppings are free and included.  For my grilled cheese sandwich I added mayo, grilled onions, grilled mushroom and tomato. For $4.29 I thought this was a decent sandwich but the problem I had with this sandwich was the same problem I had with their burgers, it was a little bland. The slices of cheese had some saltiness in them but the toppings needed more seasoning. Though for a quick cheap lunch this did the job plus the buns were greasy enough and the cheese had melted nicely.

  • I’ve always loved Five Guys! But I’ve never actually tried their grilled cheese. I’ve been too busy with a bacon cheeseburger. And their fries are pretty great too! You get so many for the price.

    I wonder if they would sprinkle that cajun spice onto the grilled cheese… That would spice it up nicely i’d think!

    Is everything bland to you? Sounds more like a problem with your tastebuds and less of a problem with their food. Not everything has to be coated in seasoning to be delicious. Food has a natural flavor.
