Temptations abound when your table mates are going HAM on the bread basket.

Before that happens, it is best for you as a dedicated keto-er to pick one of the spots listed below which do have some "keto-friendly" options.


3 quick rules to remember at all times:

  1. Don’t eat high carb food – no buns, soup, no crispy and fried meals, no mashed potatoes, no fries and no bread sticks.

  2. Be cautious with sauces and dressings – order low carb dressings and/or ask for no sauce instead.

  3. Drinks have sugar too – avoid cocktails and no sweetened drinks; opt for black coffee, unsweetened tea or water.




1. Applebee's


This popular chain restaurant has great keto protein options (sirloin steak, grilled chicken) which they kick up a notch by adding buttery shrimp on top.

2. Blaze Pizza


Yes, pizza! This chain restaurant has a keto-friendly crust. Their keto crust is made with cauliflower rice, low-moisture Mozzarella cheese, casein protein, flaxseed, eggs, whey protein, yeast, spices, and cultured brown rice. So go from there when placing your order. Just go light on the sauce (or skip it entirely!) and make sure your toppings are keto-friendly (think low-carb veggies like spinach and peppers and lots of protein and cheese!).

3. Boston Market


While this restaurant chain might be known for carby-fare like cornbread and mac & cheese, it's also secretly a keto dieter's heaven. Pair proteins like rotisserie chicken and turkey with sides of veggies, salads (minus croutons), and even creamed spinach. Boston Market meals look more like a home cooked meals than a Keto Fast Food meals. The quality of the food is also home cooked worthy.

4. Cheesecake Factory


While the menu at Cheesecake Factory is notoriously big with over 250 selections, there is a space for diet-friendly fare, particularly in their Skinnylicious category. Good news for you – there is a list of low carb options on the menu; from customized breakfast (make your own omelet!) to keto friendly salad and protein options, everyone can find something to suit their tastes. The grilled salmon and lettuce-wrap tacos are solid picks, as are many of the salads, particularly the house, green, and endive options.

5. Chick-fil-A


Chick-fil-A is widely regarded as one of the best fast-food chains around, from customer service to their addictive chicken and sauces. Thankfully, you can still enjoy many of your favorite menu items with the variety of Chick-Fil-A keto options. While the company is famous for its breaded chicken, just look for the word "grilled" to find the keto eats. There are the grilled chicken sandwich and chicken club (making sure to order without buns), the grilled nuggets, and the Cobb salad with grilled chicken, among other dishes.

6. Denny's


Denny's is a great option to eat out ketogenic, especially for breakfast. You can enjoy egg breakfasts like a modified Grand Slam (think more eggs and bacon versus pancakes) and even veggie and meat-heavy omelets. Our top suggestion to stay keto at Denny’s if you're heading there for dinner ? Try out the T-bone steak, or sirloin steak, or wild Alaska salmon with a side of vegetable skillet with broccoli, zucchini, mushroom and onion topped with melted cheddar cheese.

7. Olive Garden

You might think that would be impossible, thanks to this chain restaurant’s carb-heavy signature offerings such as pasta, and breadsticks. However, it’s surprisingly easy to follow the low carb, high fat keto diet at this pasta haven. Just avoid pasta dishes and load up on their famous salad (skip the croutons!). Their signature Italian dressing is low in carbs as well. Items like Italian sausages and herb-grilled salmon are also great choices.

8. Outback Steakhouse


Any steakhouse is a keto dieter's BFF, as long as you order a salad or other green veggies on the side instead of starchy mashed potatoes or fries. Enjoy all of the steaks, as well as the fishy options like lobster, halibut, crab, and salmon. You always ask the server to hold steady on the sauces! Unfortunately, the majority of sides and appetizers on offer at Outback simply won’t fit into a keto focused lifestyle.

9. P.F. Chang's


The truth is PF Changs isn’t going to win an award for being low carb-friendly any time soon. This is due to the copious amounts of sugar utilized in most Asian cuisines. But if you look hard enough, there are definitely some viable low carb options at PF Changs.

Yeah, you'll have to skip the noodles, but things like the Asian Caesar Salad with Salmon or even their famous lettuce wraps can be great low-carb options (just be careful about any sauces or rice sticks).

10. TGI Friday's


Friday's chain actually has an entire section of their menu devoted to "green style" burgers (a.k.a., burgers with lettuce as a bun). They offer plenty of other keto-friendly options for those trying their mightiest to stay in ketosis—meals with 15 grams of carbs max to fit into keto diet. Skip the potato skins but enjoy things like salads, bacon-wrapped shrimp, and wings.
