The Absolute Best 52 Keto Fast Food Options Ranked

More and more Americans are turning to a keto diet in an effort to control their weight or to simply live a healthier lifestyle. Fast-food restaurants have noticed this growing dietary trend and it's become easier than ever to get keto-friendly food from a drive-thru window. Some eateries even have a dedicated keto-inspired menu.

Those who follow a keto diet try to limit their daily consumption of carbohydrates to under 50 grams (via Healthline). When tallying carbs, typically only net carbs are counted, which is a mathematical formula that subtracts sugar alcohols and fiber from the total carb count, according to U.S. News & World Report. To replace carbs, keto dieters eat a whole lot of fat and a higher than normal amount of protein.

While keto fast-food options are more plentiful these days, that doesn't mean that all the options are tasty. In this ranking, we've ignored the gross options and only included the 52 best keto items in the fast-food world.

52. Kosher Style Hot Dog without the bun from Five Guys

When you go to Five Guys and order a kosher-style hot dog without the bun, be prepared to be underwhelmed by what you see. The all-beef Five Guys hot dog will look small and lonely. Thankfully, the flavor of the wiener proves that good things come in small packages. Sure, it's not much to look at, but the hot dogs that Five Guys make are super savory and have a surprising amount of crispiness. To keep things keto-friendly and to maximize flavor, order the wiener with mustard on the side and dip it in the yellow stuff early and often.

51. Side Salad from McDonald's

If you're on the run and you want a quick, easy, keto-friendly bite to eat from a fast-food restaurant, you can't go wrong by ordering a healthy side salad from McDonald's. This salad features green lettuce, red lettuce, spinach, kale, tomato, and carrots. While your taste buds won't be blown away, you can gobble down the entire salad and feel happy that it has only 20 calories and 4 grams of carbs (via McDonald's).

If you want to add more flavor to the mix, consider adding the Newman's Own Ranch Dressing that McDonald's offers. But before you do, be warned that doing so would add 9 net carbs and 170 calories to the total.

50. Jumbo Jack without the bun from Jack in the Box

The best item on the Jack in the Box menu is unquestionably their Sourdough Jack. Could you order the Sourdough Jack without the sourdough bread? Absolutely not. That's not only illogical, it'd be sacrilegious and offend the gods of the fast-food universe. Instead of tempting fate, just order a bunless Jumbo Jack. You'll find that this meal is really filling and flavorful enough to keep you coming back for more. When you're ravenously hungry and you need a fast-food fix that seamlessly meshes with your keto diet, a Jumbo Jack will hit the spot and fill your tummy to the brim.

49. Chili from Wendy's

If the night is extra chilly and you need something to warm your bones, chili from Wendy's is up to the task. Powered by fresh beef, this chili is reliably delicious. Along with ground beef, you'll also find chili peppers, green peppers, onions, celery, garlic powder, onion powder, pinto beans, kidney beans, and even more in this bowl of goodness (via Wendy's).

Though you'll be tempted to order the large version, stick to a small chili if you're on a keto diet. That's because even a small Chili from Wendy's has 16 net carbs. Also, skip the saltine crackers because those salty devils are almost all carbs.

48. Kentucky Grilled Chicken from KFC

When you order a bucket of chicken from KFC, you get to pick one of four recipes: original, extra crispy, spicy, or Kentucky grilled. To be blunt, Kentucky grilled is the least yummy of the four choices. The other three recipes are awesome — but, tragically, they're not especially keto-friendly. But the good news is that a bucket of Kentucky grilled chicken is still delicious enough that you'll be guaranteed to be licking your fingers until every last morsel has vanished.

If you don't feel like eating an entire bucket of chicken, KFC makes it easy to order a Kentucky grilled chicken breast a la carte. Amazingly, this chicken breast has approximately 38 grams of protein and zero carbs (via KFC).

47. Papa's Crustless All Meat from Papa Murphy's

Finding a fast-food pizza that is low enough in carbs to be classified as keto-friendly isn't an easy task. If you go to the most popular pizza joints, most likely you'll come up empty in your search. For that reason, we should all be thankful that Papa Murphy's makes the low-carb delight known as Papa's Crustless All Meat.

To make this pizza keto-friendly, the high carb crust is eliminated but everything else you love about pizza remains intact. On the Papa's Crustless All Meat, you'll discover pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, ground beef, mozzarella cheese, and red sauce. If you want to lower the carb count even more, you can substitute the red sauce for a combination of garlic sauce and olive oil.

46. Burrito Supreme with no tortilla from Taco Bell

Taco Bell has some surprisingly tasty menu items that are safe for a keto diet. However, be warned that you will have to do some legwork to make sure their food is keto-friendly. For example, you can order a Burrito Supreme, but you'll have to ask for no tortilla. While the resulting food won't be as easy to eat, you'll still enjoy the ground beef, cheese, sour cream, beans, tomatoes, onions, and everything else in a regular Burrito Supreme. In fact, you probably won't miss the tortilla at all — especially because Taco Bell's tortillas aren't known for being particularly delectable.

To make this tortilla-less Burrito Supreme heartier, consider ordering it with a double serving of ground beef.

45. Club Tuna Unwich from Jimmy John's

While the tuna sandwiches at Subway and Jersey Mike's are entirely forgettable and should be avoided at all costs, Jimmy John's has a tuna option that is actually really good. It's called a Club Tuna Unwich and will make you a believer in fast food tuna sandwiches once again. This lettuce-wrapped sandwich features tuna salad, provolone cheese, and sliced tomatoes. The tuna salad is made by Jimmy John's employees at the restaurant, which gives it a fresher, more authentic taste than the fishy goop you find at other sub shops. This Club Tuna Unwich will fill you up with 500 calories but it has only 7 net carbs.

44. Butterburger with no bun from Culver's

The ButterBurger is the best burger at the top burger chain in the United States. While losing out on the buttered bun is a bit of a buzzkill for keto devotees, this menu item is still easily good enough to deserve a spot on this list.

To help make up for the lack of the butter-powered bun, be sure to ask for multiple slices of cheese. The cheese at Culver's is so delicious that it will help you forget all about the missing bread. Additionally, don't be shy about adding bacon, mushrooms, pickles, mustard, or mayonnaise to the mix. The quality of the ingredients at Culver's is very high — so don't be bashful about taking advantage of that fact.

43. Classic Beef 'N Cheddar with no roll from Arby's

Okay, yeah, things will get a bit discombobulated when you remove the onion roll from Arby's Classic Beef 'N Cheddar. To be honest, you have to prepare your surroundings for the ensuing messiness. But once you get the innards of the Classic Beef 'N Cheddar past your lips, you'll agree that it was worth taking precautions and going the extra mile. The combination of the cheddar sauce, red ranch sauce, and the hand-sliced roast beef will remind you that greatness is indeed available from a drive-thru window. Just be sure to grab a handful of napkins so that you can clean up the unavoidable mess.

42. Traditional Wings from Zaxby's

Zaxby's is one of the best fast-food restaurants for chicken wings. Their wings are always juicy and always overflowing with flavor.

When limiting carbs is your primary concern, pick Zaxby's Traditional Wings and skip the sauce. You can eat five of these wings and the total impact on your diet is 380 calories and 3 grams of carbs. If you want to add sauce, go spicy. Five of their Traditional Wings with Tongue Torch sauce have only 400 calories and 5 grams of carbs (via Zaxby's). That's a small price to pay for a whole lot of flavor.

41. Taquito with Cheese with no tortilla from Whataburger

Whataburger is a burger chain that was born in Texas, so it makes sense that it know its way around Tex-Mex favorites like the Taquito with Cheese. This epic breakfast item looks like a burrito but it's filled to the gills with eggs, American cheese, and a protein of your choosing. Keto-wise, you'll want to skip the potato option and go with chorizo, bacon, or sausage and ask for your Taquito with Cheese to be served without a tortilla. If you want to start your morning with a healthy serving of heat, you can get it with red salsa by asking for it to be served Ranchero Picante Style.

40. Big Mac with no bun from McDonald's

Thanks to a memorable jingle, you probably know that each McDonald's Big Mac comes equipped with a pair of all-beef patties, cheese, lettuce, onions, pickles, and a sesame seed bun that's slathered with special sauce. While this sandwich has barely been touched since it was invented in the 1960s, you'll at least need to get rid of the sesame seed bun in order for it to be keto-friendly. You could shave off a few more carbs by getting the Big Mac plain without the special sauce, but where's the fun in that? If you take away the special sauce, it won't even taste like a Big Mac anymore. Leave it on.

39. Cobb Salad with grilled chicken from Chick-fil-A

Purchase the Cobb Salad at Chick-fil-A to get your hands on one of the best fast food salads in all the land. To keep in the good graces of the keto gods, go with some sort of grilled chicken, whether that's the grilled filet served cold, the spicy grilled filet, or any other chicken option that's grilled. You should also ask for no roasted corn but the mixed greens, Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon pieces, and the hard-boiled egg slices are all perfect. The Cobb Salad comes with Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing, which works for keto dieters because it has only three net carbs (via Chick-fil-a).

38. Cold Brew from Dunkin'

Although the donuts at Dunkin' are definitely not keto-friendly, there are multiple coffee options that fit the bill. Of those, the Cold Brew is the best choice for a variety of reasons. Firstly, unless you add something to it, this coffee has no carbs. Second of all, the 12-hour brewing process unlocks a richness and a hint of sweetness that's more difficult to taste in hot coffee. There's also a touch of chocolatiness if you pay close enough attention. Finally, you can drink Dunkin's Cold Brew quickly or sip it slowly throughout the day — and that flexibility is valuable as you adjust to what your day has in store for you.

37. Dave's Double with no bun from Wendy's

Another option for when you're battling hunger pangs, a bunless Dave's Double from Wendy's will fill you up so much that you might not need to eat for the rest of the day. The star of the show is the two fresh beef patties. In total, you get a half-pound of beef that tastes great each and every time you order it. Beyond the meat, Dave's Double comes with two slices of American cheese, tomatoes, pickles, onions, lettuce, mayonnaise, and ketchup. Hardcore keto followers may be tempted to nix the ketchup to cut a couple of carbs but everything else is on the approved list.

36. Grilled Shrimp from Long John Silver's

It can be tricky to find fast food seafood that is keto-friendly and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Even at Long John Silver's, most of the offerings are battered, which means the food is high in carbs. But they do have a few menu items that should make keto dieters rejoice. Long John Silver's Grilled Shrimp is even better than it sounds. Herbs and spices are added to the shrimp before it is grilled to kick things up a notch.

Another option is the Grilled Salmon. Whether you should pick the shrimp or salmon comes down to your personal preference. Both have little to no carbs and both have more flavor than you'd imagine.

35. Grilled Chicken Taco with no tortilla from Del Taco

The Grilled Chicken Taco from Del Taco gives you quite the bang for your buck. Simply jettison the tortilla and everything else about the taco is keto-friendly. You'll enjoy the marinated grilled chicken pieces along with the cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and Del Taco's secret sauce that is exceptionally savory. Make sure that the chicken and the sauce mingle so that you taste this tortilla-less taco at its best.

Since the Grilled Chicken Tacos are so cheap, you can load up on three or four of these guys without putting a dent in your bank account.

34. Oven Roasted Turkey Bowl from Subway

Subway makes it really easy to turn one of its carb-heavy subs into a keto-friendly meal. Pick your favorite footlong and simply ask for it to be turned into a bowl. All that means is that the bread is taken away and all of the interior goodies are put into a bowl for you to enjoy. While many of these bowls are a-okay for a keto diet, the Oven Roasted Turkey Bowl is one of the best bets. This beautiful beast has 25 grams of protein but only 5 net carbs. You could eat a couple of these bowls a day and still have carb room to spare.

33. Grilled Nuggets from Chick-fil-A

While not as exciting as Chick-fil-A's regular Nuggets that are breaded and then pressure-fried, the Grilled Nuggets are nothing to complain about. As the name suggests, these nuggets are grilled to perfection and have a natural smokiness that will quickly cause you to become a fan. You don't even have to worry as you eat one after another because 12 Grilled Nuggets have only 200 calories and 2 net carbs. It'd be almost impossible to eat too many of these things in one sitting. If you require a dipping sauce, grab a packet of Zesty Buffalo Sauce because it only adds 1 carb to your meal.

32. Guacamole Bacon Angus Burger wrapped in lettuce from Carl's Jr.

Carl's Jr. has you covered if you're trying to adhere to a keto diet. The chain will wrap any burger you select in lettuce if you ask. We think the best moved is to order a lettuce-wrapped Guacamole Bacon Angus Burger. Your taste buds will thank you for your wise choice. The lettuce-wrapped burger will come with a charbroiled patty, multiple strips of bacon, gooey pepper Jack cheese, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, a Sante Fe Sauce that tastes like it's a mix of mayo and paprika, and a scoop of zesty guacamole.

31. Roast Chicken Entree Salad from Arby's

A top tier salad from Arby's that's entirely keto-friendly? Yes, that's a real thing you can find in this fast-food eatery that's known for its sliced-to-order roast beef. In fact, this salad is so perfect for a keto diet that it seems like it was created specifically for keto followers. On the Roast Chicken Entree Salad, you will find roasted slices of chicken, bits of bacon, cheddar cheese, diced tomato, and multiple types of lettuce. It also comes with a flavorful buttermilk ranch dressing. All told, this Arby's salad has approximately 250 calories and only 5 net carbs.

30. Rotisserie Chicken from Boston Market

Before switching to a keto diet, you may have never even thought about picking up fast food at Boston Market. But once you're a keto believer, Boston Market is a really handy place to get some grub. Its Rotisserie Chicken comes in large portions and the meat tastes super fresh because it has never been frozen. For every 10 ounces of chicken you eat, you get a whopping 70 grams of protein and only 1 net carb. While Boston Market sells more than just the Rotisserie Chicken, that's what you should zero in on when you're on a keto diet.

29. Smoked Brisket Keto Bowl from Qdoba

Qdoba has noticed the keto trend and now has a menu item called the Smoked Brisket Keto Bowl. Thankfully, this dish isn't fibbing about being keto-friendly. The bowl comes with beef brisket that has been braised slowly, store-made guacamole, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, green salsa, and a bed of romaine lettuce. Even if you've tried Qdoba before and you weren't impressed, this keto-inspired creation is worth trying at least once. You might find yourself putting it into your regular rotation. The amount of flavor in the Smoked Brisket Keto Bowl will leave your tongue in a state of ecstasy. 

28. Bacon Two Cheese Deluxe Signature Stackburger with no bun from Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen can be a dangerous establishment for a keto enthusiast to visit. From delectable Blizzards to banana splits, there are a lot of potential pitfalls at this place. Luckily, there's something at Dairy Queen that is keto-safe and will keep you grinning from ear to ear. Order the Bacon Two Cheese Deluxe Signature Stackburger without a bun. Available with double or triple meat, this thing has American cheese, white cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, tomato, pickles, onion, lettuce, and mayonnaise. The savory flavors in this burger will make you forget all about the sweet treats that Dairy Queen is primarily known for.

27. Whopper with no bun from Burger King

Sometimes, all you want and all you crave is the flame-grilled flavor that Burger King's Whopper has in abundance. While you'll need to forgo the bun in order to make this meal keto-friendly, eliminating the bun doesn't take away from that flame-charredntaste. If anything, pushing the bread aside only enhances it.

A Whopper typically comes with tomato slices, onions, pickles, lettuce, mayo, and ketchup. If you keep all that on there, your meal will have 430 calories and 9 net carbs (via Fatsecret). If you ditch the tomato slices and the ketchup, your bunless Whopper will still be really tasty while being even lower in carbs.

26. Southwest Avocado Salad from Culver's

Culver's has a few salads that are perfect for keto dieters who don't want another yawn-inducing fast food salad. While you'll need to make some adjustments here and there, the changes are straightforward and easy to remember. The Southwest Avocado Salad has only 5 net carbs as long as you don't eat the tortilla strips. Even without the tortilla strips, the avocado, chicken, and crumbled feta will keep you thoroughly entertained.

Another possibility at Culver's is the Cranberry Bacon Bleu Salad with Grilled Chicken. If you skip the dried cranberries and instead turn your focus to the bleu cheese crumbles and the chopped bacon, this fantastic salad has only 3 net carbs.

25. Broccoli Beef from Panda Express

Mom always told you that you should eat your broccoli. Now keto adherents can make Mom proud (and make their mouths water) by ordering the healthy Broccoli Beef from Panda Express. This dish comes with beef that has been glazed with a ginger soy sauce and, of course, broccoli.

Even though the ginger soy sauce makes the Broccoli Beef dish relatively sweet, this dish has only 11 net carbs. Don't even think about eliminating the ginger soy sauce because that's what makes this meal worth eating. It not only makes the tender beef more scrumptious, but it also enhances the broccoli so much that you'll eat every last green speck without complaint.

24. Iced Coffee from Starbucks

As long as you know how to navigate its coffee menu in a keto-friendly manner, Starbucks has a lot of coffee options that are low in carbohydrates. If you're new to this game, start with Starbucks' Iced Coffee because this drink is its most forgiving. Customizations you can make without introducing too many carbs include adding heavy cream or half & half, opting for the sugar-free vanilla syrup, using Splenda or stevia as the sweetener, or topping it with whipped cream. Tackling Starbucks with a keto mindset takes some trial and error but eventually you will get the hang of it.

23. Double Cheeseburger with no bun from Burger King

The Double Cheeseburger from Burger King checks a lot of boxes when it comes to finding the ultimate keto fast-food menu items. First of all, this burger is inexpensive. To put it in perspective, Burger King's Double Cheeseburger is usually less than half as much as a Whopper (via Fast Food Menu Prices). Second of all, it comes with two slices of American cheese, which is a keto-friendly flavor enhancer. Thirdly, you just need to toss the bun and everything else on the burger is ready to rock your keto world. Lastly, you know that flame-grilled goodness the Whopper possesses? This cheaper burger tastes almost exactly the same.

22. Burrito Bowl from Moe's Southwest Grill

If you do the hard (yet delicious) work of taste-testing every Mexican fast-food chain in the country, you'd eventually come to the conclusion that Moe's Southwest Grill is the best of the best. The freshness and the unrivaled flavors of everything on its menu make this a spot you should go out of your way to visit.

With a keto diet in mind, you'll want to stay away from the tortillas and chips and stick to a customizable Burrito Bowl. After you pick your protein (steak, pork, ground beef, tofu, white meat chicken, or adobo chicken), you should skip the rice and the beans. Instead, load up on keto-friendly additions such as cheese, pico de gallo, grilled peppers, grilled onions, sour cream, black olives, pickled jalapeno peppers, and cilantro. You could even pay more to add bacon or guacamole to your Burrito Bowl.

21. Quarter Pounder with Cheese with no bun from McDonald's

A funny thing happens when you remove the bun from a Quarter Pounder with Cheese: it actually tastes better. Even if you've eaten this ubiquitous McDonald's burger countless times in the past and weren't too impressed, you may be stunned by how good it tastes after removing the bun. While some burgers can struggle without the help of bread, a Quarter Pounder with Cheese is able to show off a surprisingly complex array of flavors. Most notably, the subtle saltiness in the meat and the richness of the cheese combine to elevate this burger to the next level. Keto believers shouldn't overlook McDonald's when on the hunt for a fast-food burger fix.

20. Kale and Mushroom Egg Bites from Starbucks

Starbucks coffee showing up on this list shouldn't be a shock — but did you know Starbucks has food items that are keto-friendly? You can find the Kale and Mushroom Egg Bites on the breakfast menu and this quick meal could change how you look at Starbucks going forward. These things are easy to eat but the taste is mind-blowingly good — especially when you consider they have only 9 net carbs.

Made using the sous vide technique, these egg bites have portabella mushrooms, kale, cottage cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, Swiss cheese, garlic, parsley, and other goodies. One mouthful is all you'll need to fall in love.

19. Sub in a tub from Jersey Mike's

At Jersey Mike's, all you need to do to turn a sub sandwich into a keto-friendly meal is to say you want your sub in a tub. Doing that is so easy and results in such appetizing food that a sub in a tub video blew up on TikTok.

If you're apprehensive about picking the right sub at Jersey Mike's, go with the BLT. Add pickles, peppers, or any other veggies to the bacon, lettuce, and tomato. When you're ready to try the sub in a tub at its best, go with the Number Four. This monster sub is famous for its combination of prosciuttini, cappacuolo, and provolone.

18. Bacon Cheeseburger with no bun from Five Guys

Five Guys is a beloved burger joint that values freshness so much that it doesn't even have freezers. Of all the burgers on its menu, the Bacon Cheeseburger deserves to be regarded as the king. Take away the bun to make it keto-friendly and this bad boy is still absolutely marvelous. The beef combined with the American cheese combined with the bacon means you're guaranteed to have a good time.

A fun thing to do with this Five Guys burger is to turn up the heat. Order the Bacon Cheeseburger with jalapeno peppers and hot sauce to experience something completely different. While your mouth might be on fire, you'll still love what you taste.

17. Keto Champ Berry from Smoothie King

A lusciously succulent smoothie made specifically with keto dieters in mind? That dream has become reality at Smoothie King. On its menu, you'll discover the Keto Champ Berry, Keto Champ Chocolate, and Keto Champ Coffee. While all three smoothies are yummy, the Keto Champ Berry is the best of the bunch. It's packed with raspberries, wild blueberries, almond butter, almond milk, protein powder, and cocoa. Add up all those stupendous ingredients and this smoothie has 430 calories, 23 grams of protein, and only 11 net carbs. For a quick dessert on the go that will totally satisfy your sweet tooth without ruining your diet, you can't do much better than the Keto Champ Berry.

16. Power Menu Bowl from Taco Bell

Though some alterations are necessary, the Power Menu Bowl at Taco Bell is a convenient, filling, tasty meal with a flavor profile that you'll cherish. Start your Power Menu Bowl with chicken, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, ranch sauce, diced tomatoes, and lettuce. Although you'll need to skip the black beans and the seasoned rice that come standard, you can replace those two items with jalapeno peppers, onions, and seasoned beef. The beef and the chicken at Taco Bell are a match made in heaven, while the jalapeno peppers and onions add flavor complexity that will make your day.

15. Spicy Italian Bowl from Subway

While there are many great subs to pick from, the Spicy Italian is the best sandwich at Subway. It's only logical that the Spicy Italian Bowl would be at the head of its class too. Your favorite aspect of this bowl will be the Genoa salami and pepperoni — but that's not where the fun needs to stop. Add oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, pickles, banana peppers, black olives, lettuce, spinach, and your choice of cheese (provolone cheese would be an outstanding choice in this scenario). The resulting bowl will not only be keto-friendly but also so tasty that you'll want to eat it for lunch every day.

14. Whataburger with no bun from Whataburger

If you want a burger that doesn't need much customization to make it ready for your keto diet, go to Whataburger and order a Whataburger or a Double Meat Whataburger. From there, the only thing you have to do is take off the bun and it's ready for you to chow down on. That's because a Whataburger comes with a host of keto-friendly ingredients: tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, and mustard.

Want to make your bunless burger more savory? Add slices of American cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, or bacon. Want to make your Whataburger more exotic? Add grilled jalapeno peppers or avocado.

13. Double Chicken Avocado Salad from El Pollo Loco

Although it's often overlooked, El Pollo Loco is legitimately one of the top fast-food chicken chains in existence. Its citrus-marinated and then fire-grilled chicken is truly elite. Although you could just order the chicken at El Pollo Loco and be thrilled with your choice, you can experience a next-level meal by ordering the Double Chicken Avocado Salad instead. It's labeled as being keto-friendly and the 7 net carbs confirm that label.

The Double Chicken Avocado Salad comes with chicken breast chunks, avocado slices, pico de gallo, cotija cheese, lettuce, and organic greens. You'll adore each and every aspect of this El Pollo Loco menu item.

12. Atomic Wings from Wingstop

Wingstop is the preeminent chicken wing chain and its Atomic Wings are the go-to choice for those individuals who have a courageous palate. This is the chain's hottest flavor by a country mile (via Wingstop). While the spiciness is through the roof, the fire arrives with an equal amount of enticing flavor. These wings might make you sweat but you'll enjoy every moment of the roller coaster ride.

According to the company's nutrition page, 10 Atomic Wings from Wingstop have only 10 net carbs. If these wings are a little bit too hot, go ahead and dip them in Wingstop's blue cheese or ranch. Both of those sauces have a low carb count.

11. Sausage McMuffin with Egg without the muffin from McDonald's

The English muffin a McDonald's Sausage McMuffin with Egg comes with can be hit-or-miss. Sometimes it's hot with the perfect amount of crispiness. Other times it's a crumbly mess that does nothing but add a chalky texture to the sandwich. Instead of gambling, just skip the muffin completely. That makes this McDonald's menu item a smashing keto success. Without the iffy muffin, you're left with a sausage patty, a slice of gooey American cheese, and a perfectly-cooked egg patty. You'll probably want to use a fork and a knife to eat this creation but it's well worth the potential hassle.

10. Keto Bowl from Chipotle

Chipotle has a category on its menu called Lifestyle Bowls that caters to different diets including Whole30, paleo, vegan, and, yes, keto. The chain's Keto Bowl looks scrumptious and tastes even better. This dish has a base of crispy greens, guacamole, tomatillo-infused salsa, shredded cheese, and your choice of chicken or steak. You can't go wrong with either protein; the steak is more filling but the chicken has more flavor per ounce.

If you've never tried Chipotle's guac, be prepared for greatness. Made from a tomato-less recipe that calls for avocados, onions, jalapeno peppers, cilantro, and citrus juice, this stuff is legendary for a reason.

9. Baconator with no bun from Wendy's

Bacon is the best friend of everyone on a keto diet. For that reason, no one should be shocked that Wendy's Baconator got a top ten spot in this ranking. If you want bacon-charged goodness from a drive-thru window, look no further than this classic burger. For those unfortunate souls who have never eaten a Baconator, this thing comes with six pieces of smoked bacon, a half-pound of never-frozen beef, American cheese, mayonnaise, and ketchup. When you order it without the bun, you could add lettuce — or you could just keep this burger completely carnivore-friendly and revel in the savoriness of the beef and the bacon.

8. Keto pizza from Blaze Pizza

While Papa Murphy's deserves a round of applause for at least trying to make life easier for keto dieters with the previously mentioned crustless pizza, Blaze Pizza took it a step further. Instead of going crustless, Blaze Pizza caters to keto dieters with a keto crust made from numerous ingredients including cauliflower rice, mozzarella cheese, eggs, and flaxseed. On top of the surprisingly delicious crust, you'll discover red sauce, mozzarella cheese, bacon, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach to complete your keto pizza. If you order the 11-inch pizza, it comes with six slices that each have 150 calories and only 2 net carbs (via Blaze Pizza).

7. Vito Unwich from Jimmy John's

If you adore the majestic Vito sub sandwich from Jimmy John's, you're guaranteed to also fall head over heels for the Vito Unwich. This breadless culinary invention contains capicola, salami, and provolone cheese that has all been sliced by hand. Additionally, you'll find lettuce, onion, tomato, oregano, basil, oil, and vinegar. You could further customize the Vito Unwich but why mess with perfection?

Sure, in a perfect world where bread doesn't have carbs, you'd pick the Vito sub sandwich because it's superior to a Vito Unwich. But in this world where bread is a keto dieter's worst enemy, this alternative will brighten your mood without fail.

6. Grilled Chicken Sandwich with no bun from Chick-fil-A

If you order a grilled chicken patty at most fast-food restaurants, you're destined to have a lackluster time. Most grilled chicken patties are lifeless, flavorless, and capable of boring you to death. Thankfully, Chick-fil-A isn't just any fast-food chain. It's an elite chicken chain that has mastered the art of grilling chicken.

Chick-fil-A's Grilled Chicken Sandwich doesn't need much help to be an outstanding keto option. Just say no to the bun and consider adding mayo. That's the extent of what you need to do. The grilled chicken breast is dripping with lemon, herb, and smoky flavors that you won't soon forget.

5. Greek Salad from Panera Bread

To a keto follower's ear, Panera Bread might sound like a no-go restaurant. The word "bread" is blasphemous to keto devotees — so Panera Bread should be avoided, right? That's actually incorrect. Panera Bread has a couple of keto options, with the Greek Salad being especially tasty. In fact, it's the best keto-friendly fast-food salad you'll find in any corner of the country.

Panera Bread's Greek Salad has romaine lettuce, kalamata olives, red onions, grape tomatoes, feta, salt, pepper, and Greek dressing. It's the low-carb Greek dressing that's the real star of the show. Its rich and deep flavor makes everything in this salad amazingly tasty.

4. Mushroom Chicken from Panda Express

Mushrooms can play a vital role in a keto diet. Not only are they low in carbohydrates, but mushrooms are also high in fiber and have many important vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, potassium, and selenium (via Healthline). With that in mind, the Mushroom Chicken at Panda Express is a natural choice for a keto believer. It features mushrooms, chicken, and zucchini covered with ginger soy sauce.

Like mushrooms, zucchini is an optimal vegetable choice for a keto diet. An entire medium zucchini has only three net carbs, according to Men's Health. In this Mushroom Chicken dish at Panda Express, you'll look forward to each zucchini slice.

3. 3X3 Protein Style from In-N-Out

There's something unexplainably thrilling about ordering off of a fast food chain's secret menu. At In-N-Out, the secret menu is now official. The chain has published a not-so-secret menu on its website. This is the menu you'll need to use to get your fingertips on their best keto-friendly option. Tell an In-N-Out employee that you want a 3X3 Protein Style and they'll know exactly what you're talking about without you having to utter another word.

For those not in the know, ordering a 3X3 Protein Style will result in you getting three beef patties, three slices of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and In-N-Out's secret sauce wrapped in lettuce instead of on a bun.

2. Blackened Chicken Tenders from Popeyes

Not only does Popeyes have the top fast-food chicken tenders in America, one of its three types of tenders is perfectly keto-friendly.

From the first moment their aroma hits your nostrils, you'll know you've selected well. These tenders are exceedingly juicy and so flavorful that it'll cause you to drool. Plus, they have just enough spiciness to keep you on your toes. Even if you eat three of the Blackened Chicken Tenders, that's only 283 calories and 3 net carbs (via Popeyes).
