Most restaurants throughout Los Angeles offer keto-friendly menu items intentionally or provide menu items that are easy to modify and make keto-friendly.

Sure Olive Garden, Red Lobster, California Pizza Kitchen, Red Robin, and the rest cater to special dietary needs. But we encourage you to get out and explore the independently owned restaurants in Los Angeles. They serve up some of the tastiest food in the city and appreciate the support more than the big dogs.
