They also have open bins of peanuts for folks to shell and eat.

We have one near us and the school has had a few fundraisers there. I actually was a bit annoyed by that but whatever!

That sounds so disgusting and unsanitary!

WHY? WHY do restaurants feel the need to do this...I guess it is an added gimck.
Obviously, not a place I'll ever try but they are a bunch opening around here---too bad.

Five Guys have been in the DC metropolitan area for the past several years & are very popular so I guess it makes sense that they are expanding. There is even one in our neighborhood shopping center. The problem we have had with that particular location is that they have a couple outdoor tables set up (I can't imagine wanting to eat as the minivans & SUVs drive past -- this is not a lovely street cafe we're talking about! -- but whatever...) & the peanut shells get scattered all the way down the sidewalk. I t has gotten better since I called the local store & contacted the headquarters, but that is something you maywnt to keep an eye out for.

Our local stores ask that the peanuts not be taken onto the patio.
I'm not contact reactive and can have peanut oil. I eat fries from Five Guys regularly because they're the only soy-free game in town and their fryers contain only just-cut russett potatoes and oil--nothing else.

We have just had Five Guys to open in our area. We can't eat there as a family but when I'm by myself I stop in. The food is great. Sometimes I crave things that ds can't have. I understand the frustration about school fundraiser's. We are not in that situation yet but will be in a couple of years. Ds is almost 3.
I hope everyone had a happy Mother's Day.

There's a Five Guys at National Airport now. I had a burger and fries when I was on a business trip - have to admit, they were delicious! Sorry that there is one more thing for PA travelers to worry about, though.
The Five Guys near our home has a warning sign about not taking peanuts outside because of neighborhood peanut allergies.
