Hi All!
I have awesome news for all of us LCers out there! Five Guys (nationwide amazing burgers) will wrap your burger in large lettuce leaves just like In and Out (we don't have this on the East Coast and I know all of you TX and West Coasters get lettuce wrapped fast food burgers that are amazing quality all the time)
So far this I have had this in Gloucester MA and Newtown CT -- I was inspired by posts by other people on low carb boards and Atkins who are posting this in other places — it’s really amazing!
I have talked to managers at both stores and they say that any Five Guys should be able to customize your burger this way, you might just have to ask them to get a big head of lettuce in the storeroom for you, but they will!
MMMMMM enjoy! Its so good to go out and hold your burger!
Also Cheesecake Factory does this too -- they call it "Protein Style" no fancy request -- you can just order it this way!!!

lowsugar lady. Thanks for the info. I've been noticing 5 Guys places springing up all over northern Ohio. I'll have to give them a try!

I have done this many times. Hamburger, mushrooms, cheese, lettuce, YUMMY! I have celiac so buns are a no go for sure. Now the fries are HARD for me to resist, so I just don't go there!

That's good to know, I love their burgers! We just started getting 5 Guys around here (SW Ohio), before the only place I'd seen them was in NC.

Many threads here about Five Guys. Jimmy Johns will also make any sub unwich style wrapped in lettuce and then the paper-makes it easy to eat.

Good to know! I've always had 5 Guys put the burger in a foil lined peanut tray but I agree it's just not the same as hand-held

Don't know if any of you have a Red Robin near you but they'll also wrap their burgers in lettuce for you as well. Yum!

We have lots of Five Guys here in NC -- I like the fact that you can add lots of great toppings to your burger too - grilled onions, jalapenos, etc. Usually I've been taking off the bun after I get the burger. Like the lettuce wrapped version better!

So glad you all are excited about 5 Guys Lettuce Wrapped!

Write me and tell me if it's awesome! I am such a fan I think they are going to put a picture of me on the wall! (Though I do wish I could have some of those fries sometime!)

Yes, and I love the free veggie -- onions, mushrooms, etc! toppings too!

Yay for low carb!

I'm 13 pounds down in 7 weeks and 23 to go

I live in Cincinnati and we have a 5 Guys close by. I love their hot dogs too! I wonder how those would taste wrapped in lettuce. Sounds yummy! I will have to go there this weekend.

Hardees does that here in the midwest, and wendy's will, but they don't have big lettuce leaves so they will just put the burger and toppings in a small salad container for you.

Yum! I enjoy Five Guys. I haven't been there since starting LC because I knew all they had was fries and cheeseburgers. Might have to try them again.
