Top 5 Keto Friendly Restaurants in Maryland

Updated: Jan 31, 2020

The best way to lose weight on any dietary protocol is to prepare your own meals and eat at home. It allows you to be certain about what all you put into your body. While buying groceries, cooking at home, and doing dishes every day is great in theory, doing so is not always possible. Sometimes it's just easier to go out to eat and let someone else do all the hard work. With all that being said, here is a guide of the top 5 keto friendly restaurants in Montgomery County:

1. Chipotle

(Keto Karma, 2019)

Chipotle is making a great effort to accommodate folks on ketogenic dietary protocols. They currently offer a super greens base, which is a combination of kale, lettuce, and spinach. Pair super greens, fajita peppers, and a double portion of your favorite meat to create a delicious bowl. Be sure to skip corn, tomatoes, salad dressing, tortillas, and chips as all are rich in carbs. If you do it right, you can create a bowl with less than 17 net carbs.

2. Five Guys

(Good For You Gluten Free, 2019)

Get yourself a bun-less lettuce wrap. It doesn’t matter if it’s a burger or a dog, just stay away from the buns, BBQ sauce, cooked onions, and tomatoes. Limit your condiments. Meaning pick either ketchup, A1 sauce, or mayonnaise. A combination of all 3 will give your meal a higher carb count than it needs. Hot sauce and jalapeños are okay since they have virtually no carbs. Oh and you can have absolutely NO FRIES!

3. Cava
