Top 10 Keto-Friendly Restaurants

July 16, 2019 18 By William Morgan


In case you don’t already know, the Keto diet
is short for the Ketogenic diet. It’s got
things in common with the Atkins diet plan
and other low-carbohydrate diets – but supposedly
with a bit more science behind it. Today,
we’re going to share information about ten
eateries that cater to Keto diet fans. We’ll
give you guys all of this nutritional info
because we know that you want results from
your Keto lifestyle. Knowing what’s in the
food that you eat is important. So for those
who love the Keto diet let’s check out the
top 10 Keto-friendly restaurants.
Outback Steakhouse
While dining at Outback Steakhouse, you’ll
have Keto-friendly choices galore, but you’ll
need to avoid the carb-laden side dishes.
If you’re willing to forego the carbohydrate-rich
sides, you’ll have your pick of entrees,
from steak to fish to decadent lobster tails
and King Crab. Burgers will be good choices,
too, as long as you don’t eat the buns or
load your burgers with toppings that contain
carbs. If it’s appetizers you’re craving,
consider Kookaburra Wings. The small portion
of wings will have twenty-six grams of fat,
thirty-five grams of protein and only eight
net carbs. A salad will also make a nice appetizer
– just watch the dressing! One superb entree
to consider is the Slow-Roasted Prime Rib.
It’s hearty, satisfying and delicious. The
portion weighs in at eight ounces and contains
seven hundred calories, plus fifty-seven grams
of total fat, twenty-six grams of which come
from saturated fat. Slow-Roasted Prime Rib
contains no carbs at all, but it does have
eleven hundred and sixty milligrams of sodium,
as well as one gram of sugar. You’ll get forty-six
grams of protein from this Outback Steakhouse
meal option. It doesn’t contain any fiber.
This American restaurant serves up American
food with an interesting Aussie theme. The
casual dining eatery chain has its headquarters
in sunny Tampa, Florida. Right now, there
are more than a thousand of these restaurants
in the United States and other nations, including
Australia, Canada, Asia, and South America.
The restaurant was founded during March of
1988.  The eatery is probably best known
for its Bloomin Onion, which definitely isn’t
Keto-friendly. The Bloomin Onion contains
seventeen net carbs per serving.
We’ve got plenty more to serve up. So if

Ruby Tuesday
This restaurant chain got its name from a
Rolling Stones song. These days, there are
over seven hundred Ruby Tuesday restaurants
in forty American states and twelve other
countries. The first Ruby Tuesday restaurant
featured some faux-Tiffany lamps, plus hamburgers
with English muffin buns. The days of English
muffin buns are long gone. Today, there are
plenty of great options for Keto diet fans.
So, what can you enjoy at a Ruby Tuesday’s
while you’re following your Keto diet? Well,
the Endless Garden Bar is one excellent option.
Create your own combinations of veggies, salad
greens, seeds, nuts, meat, dairy, and Pico
de Gallo salsa. Avoid the carb-rich toppings,
including croutons, fruit, corn, fried onions,
crackers, and beans. For an entree, indulge,
without breaking your diet, by ordering Asiago
Bacon Chicken or New Orleans Seafood. Asiago
Bacon Chicken contains four hundred and seventy-nine
calories, twenty-seven grams of total fat,
seven grams of which is saturated, plus nine
grams of carbs, four grams of fiber, forty-two
grams of protein and two grams of sugar. It
also contains two thousand, three hundred
and eighty-seven milligrams of sodium. New
Orleans Seafood has three hundred and forty-seven
calories, fourteen total fat grams, five of
which are saturated fat, and four grams of
carbs. This seafood entree also contains one
thousand, seven hundred and sixty milligrams
of sodium, as well as forty-four grams of
protein. New Orleans Seafood has no fiber
or sugar.
Cracker Barrel
Cracker Barrel restaurants feature a homey
and welcoming atmosphere which is decidedly
old-fashioned and inspired by the American
South. These eateries-plus-gift shops hearken
back to yesteryear, thanks to their rustic
decor. Most famous for serving up Chicken’n’
Dumplings, which aren’t a good Keto diet option,
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store does offer
some entree menu items which are just right
for Keto diet followers. While you’re at Cracker
Barrel, consider ordering Lemon Pepper Grilled
Rainbow Trout, or Grilled Sirloin Steak. For
Keto-friendly side dishes, add cottage cheese
or coleslaw. The Lemon Pepper Grilled Rainbow
Trout entree features a fillet of boneless
spring water trout that’s lightly seasoned.
The trout is grilled to perfection. When you
order this seafood dish, you’ll be able to
select your preferred Country Sides. We’ve
already recommended the Keto-friendly ones.
Stay away from the French Fries, corn muffins
and buttermilk biscuits, although they do
sound tasty, don’t they? Grilled Sirloin Steak
from Cracker Barrel features an eight-ounce
fillet, which is choice top sirloin based
on USDA standards, and you may order it grilled
just as you like it. While corn muffins and
buttermilk biscuits are offered with this
meal, and these baked items are made from
scratch, you’ll need to avoid them. Instead,
choose a low-carb side.
The Cheesecake Factory
The name, Cheesecake Factory, isn’t exactly
synonymous with no-carb or low-carb dieting
so you may be pleasantly surprised to learn
that there is a Keto-friendly entree on the
menu. When you opt for The Skinnylicious Grilled
Salmon, you’ll enjoy great taste. Now, let’s
look at the nutritional information for this
particular menu item. It contains five hundred
and ninety calories, eight grams of saturated
fat, sixteen grams of carbohydrates and six
hundred and thirty-four milligrams of sodium.
The restaurant company is known for its cheesecakes,
so you’ll need a bit of willpower to avoid
ordering one of these delectable desserts
while you’re at the Cheesecake Factory. The
very first Cheesecake Factory opened its doors
to the public way back in 1978, in ritzy Beverly
Hills. David M. Overton founded this restaurant.
Nowadays, there are two hundred and ten Cheesecake
Factory eateries. The restaurant chain is
renowned for its big portions, delicious cheesecakes,
other tasty baked items and interesting, well-rounded
menu, which features pizza, burgers, steaks,
pasta, and sandwiches. Now that you know about
The Skinnylicious Grilled Salmon, you’ll know
what to order when you go into this popular
restaurant. While other menu items with much
higher carb counts may test your devotion
to the Keto Diet, you’ll always know that
there is an entree that does fit your diet.
Olive Garden
Olive Garden is such a popular American restaurant
chain. It specializes in Italian-American
food. In spring of 2018, there were eight
hundred and ninety-two Olive Garden eateries
all over the world. The restaurant brought
in 3.8 billion dollars in revenue. If you
want Keto-friendly grub at Olive Garden, you’ll
need to bypass the breadsticks and go for
Herb-grilled Salmon with Parmesan-crusted
Zucchini, or The Chicken Piccata. When you
choose the salmon entree, it will contain
four hundred and sixty calories and have twenty-eight
grams of fat, eight of which are saturated.
It’ll also contain five hundred and seventy
milligrams of sodium, eight grams of carbs,
four grams of fiber, three grams of sugar
and thirty-three grams of protein. If you
prefer to order Chicken Piccata, the lunch
version will contain three hundred and fifty
calories, twenty-one grams of total fat, nine
grams of which comes from saturated fat, and
twelve hundred and thirty milligrams of sodium.
You’ll get eleven grams of carbs, a couple
of grams of fiber, three grams of sugar and
thirty-three protein grams. Stuffed Mushrooms
are also a tasty menu item to consider. They
are decadent, thanks to their clam and cheese
filling, and very satisfying, too.
P.F. Chang’s
P.F. Chang’s is one of the newer restaurants
on the list. It opened for business in 1993.
However, its provenance dates back to the
Swinging Sixties, when a woman named Cecilia
Chang ran her own Chinese eatery, which was
known as The Mandarin. The Mandarin was a
favorite of the late Beatle, John Lennon,
and his wife, Yoko Ono. When Cecilia returned
to her native China for a long trip, her son,
Philip, decided to take over. In the 1990s,
a restauranteur named Paul Fleming appreciated
the food that the Changs offered and decided
to help the Changs expand. Philip and Paul
Fleming went into business together and the
result was P.F. Chang’s. Now, let’s talk Keto-friendly
diet options at P.F. Chang’s. Your best bet
is to order Shrimp with Lobster Sauce, or
perhaps the Pepper Steak. Don’t order any
rice. If you want the shrimp dish, you should
know that it contains three hundred and eighty
calories, 20 grams of total fat, four grams
of which is saturated, twenty-eight hundred
milligrams of sodium, twenty grams of carbs,
four grams of fiber, six grams of sugar and
twenty-nine grams of protein. The Pepper Steak
dish contains six hundred and eighty calories,
thirty-eight grams of total fat, eight of
which are saturated, twenty-seven hundred
and seventy milligrams of sodium, thirty-two
grams of carbs, four grams of fiber, twenty
grams of sugar and fifty-one grams of protein.
Red Lobster
The first Red Lobster opened for business
during 1968, in Lakeland, Florida, USA. Today,
headquarters for Red Lobster Hospitality LLC
are located in Orlando, Florida. There are
over seven hundred Red Lobster restaurants
all over the world, and plenty of them are
in the USA. If you think you can resist the
restaurant’s famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits and
stick to Keto-friendly options, it may be
time to take a trip to Red Lobster. Beyoncé
is a fan and you may love this seafood eatery,
too. So, what to order? Well, you should consider
Filet Mignon. It contains four hundred and
twenty calories, twenty-two total fat grams,
eleven of which come from saturated fat, and
eleven hundred and seventy milligrams of sodium.
It also contains twenty-six grams of carbs,
three grams of fiber, a couple of grams of
sugar and thirty-one grams of protein. Broccoli
is the ideal side dish at Red Lobster. A single
serving contains forty calories, zero fat
grams, two hundred and twenty grams of sodium,
eight grams of carbs, a couple of grams of
sugar and three grams of protein. Another
great option for entrees is Salmon New Orleans.
However, you will need to go for the half-portion.
When you do, your entree will contain five
hundred and seventy calories, thirty-seven
total fat grams, eight of which come from
saturated fat, one thousand and sixty milligrams
of sodium, ten grams of carbs, two grams of
fiber, three sugar grams, and forty-five protein
grams.
The Capital Grille
This USA steakhouse restaurant chain is upscale.
If you want an elegant dining experience,
which fits with your Keto dining plan, then
visiting the Capital Grille may be a great
way to spend an afternoon or evening. The
first Capital Grille opened in Rhode Island
in 1990. The initial steakhouse in Providence,
Rhode Island really stood out, because it
was so elegant, and it was then surrounded
by run-down buildings in the downtown core.
The founder of The Capital Grille, Ned Grace,
believed in his vision for his eatery, even
though he opened it during a recession. He
was certain that politicians and bankers would
feel right at home in his restaurant. He was
right. These days, there are fifty-one restaurants,
rather than just one. If you want to chow
down at this refined steakhouse, go for Double-Cut
Lamb Rib Chops. They contain seven hundred
and sixty calories, thirty-five grams of fat,
sixteen grams of which are from saturated
fat, and three hundred and fifty milligrams
of sodium. They also contain thirty-four grams
of carbs, a gram of fiber, twenty-nine grams
of sugar and seventy-six grams of protein.
Another popular Keto-friendly option is Swordfish.
Bonefish Grill
This seafood restaurant is American and has
a casual dining vibe. It’s owned and run by
a Tampa, Florida-based company called Bloomin’
Brands, who also owns Outback Steakhouse. Bloomin’
Brands bought The Bonefish Grill in 2001.
At that point in time, there were only three
Bonefish Grill eateries. After being snapped
up by Bloomin’ Brands, the Bonefish Grill
restaurant chain grew exponentially. By 2006,
there were a hundred restaurants.  Known
for dinner offerings, although some Bonefish
Grill locations do offer brunch on the weekends,
this restaurant chain specializes in wood-grilled
fish. Of course, grilled fish is a great choice
for Keto diet followers, so there are some
great choices here. For example, the Ahi Tuna
Steak is a tasty option and has just two hundred
and twenty calories, plus four total fat grams,
one gram of which is from saturated fat. It
also has one hundred and sixty milligrams
of sodium, zero carbs, zero fiber, zero sugar
and thirty-five grams of protein. If you’d
rather try something else, you’ll find that
the Atlantic Salmon or Chilean Sea Bass are
also zero carb entrees. Of course, you can’t
have carb-y side dishes. This goes for every
restaurant on this list. You have to choose
the right side dishes.
Applebee’s
This American restaurant chain is a good place
to find Keto-friendly meals. Right now, there
are two thousand and thirty-three Applebee’s
restaurants operating in America, Guam, Puerto
Rico, and fifteen other nations. Applebee’s
was founded in Georgia, in 1980. To enjoy
a Keto-friendly meal at Applebee’s, go for
the Shrimp’n’Parmesan Sirloin, which contains
six hundred and twenty calories, forty-two
grams of fat, twenty-three grams of which
are from saturated fat and seven grams of
carbs. This entree also features twenty-five
hundred and seventy grams of sodium, two grams
of fiber, two grams of sugar and fifty-seven
grams of protein. So for Keto diet followers,
you too can eat out, without feeling too deprived.
