Got an offer from Samantha for a Five Guys- the shop was listed at $10 now the big offer is $12. Offers used to be $15 and up- wondering if they are cutting back on the fees? Not taking the shop- do not love the food and not worth the... Continue Reading
When Five Guys Gets It Right!
May 22, 2023
I've had sporadic service and quality of food at 5G over the past few months--and I've never answered that crew members were "genuinely happy." But, voila!, yesterday I had the best shop in ages. The place was exceptionally clean; the guy who came out to clean the DR even cleaned... Continue Reading
Five Guys Falls Down on the Job!
March 15, 2023
I did two shops this week, two different locations, and both times the fries were not good. Not just below par, but unacceptable. Both times they were undercooked (yukky texture and not tasty), and one time half of them were cut to the width of a big honkin' steak fry!... Continue Reading

Five Guys Delivery Snafu
February 02, 2023

Five Guys in Presto

I just saw 5G shops listed in Presto as InstaShops - the ones in my area are pickup shops as opposed to dine in shops. The current 5G MSC [being discussed in multiple threads on the forum] doesnít use Presto. Iím beginning to wonder if the current MSC will have... Continue Reading
Five Guys Delivery/Door Dash
January 05, 2023
I've done a couple of delivery shops from Five Guys. It was preferred that you use their app to order. In my area that order is sent on to Door Dash. Twice now, my full address doesn't transfer and the driver calls for clarification. The driver... Continue Reading
How Much Have You Negotiated for Five Guys?
January 04, 2023
What is the highest you have negotiated for Five Guys? I constantly see them on the board for $25. I have tried making an offer for $30 (and even $27-28) but it is almost never accepted, which is annoying because the make an offer button is there but they... Continue Reading

October 04, 2022
Did a shop today and got my usual: little burger, little fry, small soda. It came to $17.36! I usually leave a tip on the way out if the service has been good. It was, but I'm not dipping into my fee (which was today a little less than my... Continue Reading
Five Guys delivery shops
September 23, 2022
I signed up to do two delivery shops for Five Guys, but now I'm having second thoughts. Last month I did a dine-in shop there, which was fine. To be honest, I never order food delivery because I've heard that drivers sometimes eat fries or other easy to... Continue Reading

Good morning, I used the "make an offer" and I was literally assigned three Five Guys shops between 11:15- 3:45 and one during the dinner hours. I thought we could only complete one shop per time period. Any idea if this was a mistake? I normally apply for a few... Continue Reading

Five Guys - PHONE SHOP
March 03, 2020
I've done Five Guys but never the phone shop. How does that work? Are you required to eat the meal in the dining room? It seems like that would be a tip-off if someone makes the effort to call in the order, but then eats it there.... Continue Reading

Five Guys difficult location?
December 02, 2019
I completed a Five Guys shop that was marked as a "difficult location".

Five Guys shakes and receipts
November 27, 2015
Does the shake have to be on the same receipt as the rest of the food, or can it be a separate receipt with both receipts in one photo. I've already done it where I order everything together on one receipt. But, today I am going alone and it would... Continue Reading

Five Guys Shakes (milkshakes, not the number of times the fries get shaken)
August 09, 2015

Five Guys- 15 shakes?!
July 10, 2015

McDonalds vs. Five Guys in the News ... They should ask shoppers
May 04, 2015
Who better to ask than mystery shoppers who have shopped both McDonald's and Five Guys. I like McDonald's for breakfast. I prefer Five Guys' burgers. If I could change anything about McDonald's it would be the taste of their fries and food. http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/may/02/steve-easterbrook-mcdonalds-fast-food-big-league-burgers-shake-shack McDonald's in crisis: can it fight off the Five...

Five Guys . . .milkshakes?!?!
December 20, 2014
