At Bob Evans, you can easily combine various types of meats, veggies, and toppings to have keto-friendly meals under less than 6g net carbs. In fact, most of their menu items are low in carbs if you eliminate the bread/bun.

Bob Evans is famous for breakfast classics like The Big Egg Breakfast and Rise & Shine. And it is equally loved for its wide range of comfort foods (biscuits and gravy, anyone?)

But what distinguishes them from your regular fast-food restaurant is their wide range of high-fat and low-carb add-ons. Think of bacon, steak, sausage patties, and smoked ham!

You could either enjoy a simple 3-egg omelet or go for a huge breakfast platter loaded with your favorite toppings and still be keto.

Most dishes at Bob Evans come with a choice of high-carb sides like biscuits or bread. That’s a lot of carbs, and if you can just cut them out, this restaurant is as keto-friendly as it gets!

Below you’ll find the best keto choices across a wide range of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options at Bob Evans (not to forget the beverages and sides!).
