Red Robin Low Carb Options: The Complete Keto Menu Guide!

Latest updates by: Janella Diaz
Custom KetoDiet Plan

We have to admit.

Based on their popular dishes and promos, Red Robin is not the best place for low-carb keto dieters.

There’s just no way that you can find keto-friendly dishes in a place that offers unlimited fries.

Well, unlimited fries are just one side of the story.

Do you want to hear some good news? Red Robin offers a fair amount of low-carb dishes too.

But here’s the thing.

You just need to do some research to explore their low-carb options.

The good news is they have a nutrition guide that can help you to calculate your macros easily. (1)

The best news?

We’ve compiled all the Red Robin keto options - from the appetizers to the drinks - in this article, so keep on reading!

The Basics of Ordering Low Carb at Red Robin

Here are some of the tips to ensure that your Red Robin Order is keto compliant:

Check out their nutrition guide.

As mentioned, Red Robin offers a nutrition guide on their website. But here’s another secret we want you to know — you can customize your order to make it suitable for your keto diet.

Another good thing is they also offer a nutrition customizer section on their site wherein you’re free to choose which ingredient to eliminate or add to your meal.

The customizer will provide you the nutritional facts of your customized meal. (2)

Go bunless or breadless.

The bestsellers at Red Robin are burgers (not only at Red Robin, but also at other fast-food restaurants, too), so there’s a high chance that you will order those (as you should). The good news is you can quickly turn their burgers into low-carb options.

All you need to do is ask them to hold the bread — maybe the bun, bread, or tortilla wrap. You can save about 130 to 270 calories when you do this.

Avoid starchy side dishes.

Most of the sides that come with Red Robin’s entrees, burgers, sandwiches, and wraps are starchy and rich in carbohydrates. These include onion rings, fries, and many more.

While their unlimited fries offer is irresistible, it’s a must that you ditch these sides and opt for healthier and low-carb side dishes instead. Some of the low-carb options you have are house salad (without the croutons) and steamed broccoli.

Stick with water or, at the very least, unsweetened teas and juices.

The best drink you can ever have here is water. But if you want something tasty or more refreshing, the least you can do is go for unsweetened teas.

What is the healthiest thing to eat at Red Robin on keto?

Although they offer plenty of carb-rich dishes, Red Robin’s menu is also packed with healthy and low-carb options perfect for people on a keto diet.

We’ve compiled all of the keto-friendly Red Robin dishes below to serve as your guide for ordering low carb:

The Low Carb Appetizers You Can Order at Red Robin

Let’s start with the appetizers.

Wisconsin Cheese Curds

These cheese curds are served on top of potato chips. While the cheese curds themselves won’t hurt your keto diet, consuming the potato chips will. That’s why we recommend that you hold the chips or set them aside when your order comes.

One serving of these cheese curds minus the chips will give you

  • 730 calories
  • 62g fat
  • 26g protein
  • 1g fiber
  • 10g net carbs

It still contains significant amounts of carbohydrates, so you should only eat this in moderation.

Guacamole and Salsa

You can never go wrong with guac and salsa. The avocadoes in guacamole will give you healthy fats without boosting your carbohydrate consumption. Plus, it’s one of the most nutritious fruits to eat in keto. (3)

However, this appetizer often comes with tortilla chips which you should avoid when on keto.

Here’s the trick you can try—ask them to replace the chips with celery or carrot sticks that are perfect for delivering good amounts of fiber for people on a keto diet.

You can get

  • 810 calories
  • 39g fat
  • 7g protein
  • 24g fiber
  • 57g net carbs with the chips

You can significantly reduce the carbohydrate content if you switch to veggie sticks. 

The Low Carb Soups and Salads You Can Order at Red Robin

Another healthy low-carb option that you have is their soups and salads.

Here are some tweaks you can make to make their salads and soups keto compliant.

  • The dressings with the highest carbs are balsamic vinegar and Italian so avoid those as much as possible.
  • Instead, go for bleu cheese (1g net carbs), Caesar (5g net carbs), ranch (6g net carbs), or salsa-ranch (6g net carbs).
  • Ask the waiter to hold the pieces of bread that come with the soup and croutons from the salads.

Now, without further ado, here are some of the best low carb soups and salads:

Mighty Caesar Salad

Their Caesar Salad includes chicken breast, shredded Parmesan, Caesar Dressing, romaine lettuce, and croutons.

This dish contains

  • 660 calories
  • 50g fat
  • 34g protein
  • 6g fiber
  • 17g net carbs

To reduce the carbs, hold the croutons and replace the dressing with Bleu cheese.

Avo-cobb-o Salad

Avo-cobb-o Salad is a favorite of avocado lovers as it comes with avocado slices, tomatoes, grilled chicken breast, bleu cheese crumbles, hard-boiled eggs, and hardwood-smoked bacon strips served on top of mixed greens.

You can get

  • 559 calories
  • 29g fat
  • 48g protein
  • 9g fiber
  • 21g net carbs in one serving

Order this without dressing and garlic toast to make it completely low carb.

Simply Grilled Chicken Salad

The Simply Grilled Chicken Salad is one of the Red Robin’s salads that have the lowest carbs as it contains only grilled chicken breast, shredded Cheddar, cucumbers, tomatoes, and croutons over mixed greens.

In a single serving, you’ll get

  • 566 calories
  • 22g fat
  • 46.9g protein
  • 6g fiber
  • 38.9g net carbs

We recommend skipping the dressing (or go for Bleu cheese crumbles) and hold the croutons to keep it keto-friendly.

Southwest Salad

This salad comprises ancho-grilled chicken breast, avocado, onions, tomatoes, shredded Cheddar, tortilla strips, fried jalapeno coins, lime, and corn on top of mixed greens. It’s served with salsa-ranch dressing.

You’ll get

  • 814 calories
  • 49g fat
  • 50g protein
  • 10g fiber
  • 33g net carbs in one order

We suggest holding the corn, beans, fried jalapeno coins, and tortilla strips to make it keto.

French Onion Soup

This is one of the few soups that can be tweaked to become keto. We like it because of its creamy cheese topping.

A cup of this soup gives you

  • 210 calories
  • 11g fat
  • 10g protein
  • 2g fiber
  • 13g net carbs

Make sure to ditch the garlic bread on top of the soup to keep it low carb. 

The Red Robin Keto Entrees

Now that you’ve already ordered your appetizers, soups, or salads, we head to the most critical part of the meal—the entrees!

Sear-ious Salmon

Ensenada Chicken Platter

If you want to try a more flavorful dish, their Ensenada chicken platter might just be the best option for you. This features two pieces of ancho-seasoned chicken breasts, salsa, and salsa-ranch dressing.

It’s also served with a mixed greens side salad with shredded Cheddar, tortilla strips, and tomatoes on top.

An order will give you

  • 430 calories
  • 16g fat
  • 59g protein
  • 2g fiber

You can ditch the tortilla strips and dressing to reduce the carbohydrate content further.

The Red Robin Low Carb Burgers, Sandwiches, and Wraps

And of course, we need to talk about Red Robin’s Finest and Gourmet Burgers and Sandwiches. As we mentioned, you can order these dishes without the bun so you can stick to your keto requirements.

You can also order the burgers wedgie style to use lettuce leaves to wrap the contents instead of a bun. Not only will this minimize the carb content but also increase fiber intake.

The Wedgie Burger

This Burger is the original wedgie style burger as it features their burger patty, hardwood-smoked bacon, red onions, and guacamole in a lettuce “bun.” It also comes with their side salad.

An order of this will give you

  • 560 calories

  • 14g net carbs

Lucky for you, this dish is already keto compliant without any tweaks!

Wedgie-style Burgers

If you want to try other Red Robin Burgers on keto, all you need to do is order them in wedgie-style—no buns but with lettuce wrap!

Another Red Robin Gourmet Burger is the Black and Bleu Burger which features a 100% beef patty topped with sautéed portobello mushrooms, creamy cheese sauce, caramelized onions, roasted garlic aioli, shredded lettuce, and Bleu Cheese Crumbles. Everything is placed in between Brioche buns.
