Updated December 9, 2018 - Five Guys is a hamburger joint inspired by the old fashioned rocking 50's places that once covered the USA. Five Guys catering doesn't officially exist, but they do allow group orders by phone or online (something that definitely didn't exist in the 1950's!). Five guys prices are very reasonable for a fast casual restaurant experience, including Five Guys catering prices.
Five Guys Catering Menu
The Five Guys catering menu (and regular menu) focuses on hamburgers with cheese or bacon, grilled cheese sandwiches and Kosher style hot dogs. There isn't a very large menu selection, with only two types of sides (regular and Cajun french fries), a variety of burgers and hot dogs, and a few sandwiches. Most locations have complementary roasted in-shell peanuts, but this isn't an option on the catering menu (although if you request peanuts by phone the staff at most locations will generally provide them for free to your event or group).
Just like the rest of their menu, the Five Guys dessert menu has a limited selection that's really well made. They offer milkshakes, and allow you to add in as many mix-in flavors as you like.
Five Guys Awards and Criticism
Five Guys has received several awards in their home town of Washington DC and the surrounding area. They were voted the "Number One Burger) by Washingtonian Magazine, and their are numerous pictures of Barach Obama eating there. The chain has also received local awards in more than 20 various locations throughout the United States and even a few international awards.
Criticism has mostly focused on the high caloric intake of their menu offerings, including french fries that contain more than 1,300 calories and even their standard double patty burger, which contains more than 700 calories.

Five Guys Delivery
At the current time Five Guys delivery is not an option. They do allow you to call in your order or to order it online, and then pick it up at your local branch.
However, if you're located in a major city, third party services such as Grubhub, Uber Eats, and Doordash work with many Five Guys locations to offer third party delivery. There usually is a surcharge for this service, but depending on your location it may be covered by the local restaurant (or including in menu prices).
Five Guys Hours
Five Guys hours of operation vary based on the individual location. Franchisee's are allowed to vary their hours based on demand. However, most Five Guys restaurants open at 11 AM and close at 10 PM seven days a week. More popular locations may be open till midnight throughout the week or on weekends (for example, their Times Square, NYC location is open till 2 AM every day, but this is definitely an outlier).
