The Absolute Best 52 Keto Fast Food Options Ranked

A lot of people in the U.S. are on the keto diet to lose weight or to live a better life.

Fast-food places have caught on to this trend and are now offering foods that are good for people on the keto diet. Some places have even made a special menu for people on the keto diet.

People who follow the keto diet can only eat less than 50 grams of carbs per day.

The Absolute Best 52 Keto Fast Food Options Ranked

They only count net carbs, which are the carbs left over after fibre and sugar alcohols are taken out. They eat more fat and protein than usual to make up for the lack of carbs.

Even though there are more options for keto fast food, not all of them are tasty.

This list only has the 52 best keto fast food items, leaving out the ones that don’t sound good.

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

If you go to Five Guys and ask for a kosher-style hot dog without a bun, you should expect to be disappointed.

The all-beef hot dog from Five Guys will look small and sad. The wiener’s taste shows that good things can come in small packages.

Kosher Style Hot Dog without the bun from Five Guys

Even though it doesn’t look like much, Five Guys’ hot dogs are very tasty and have a surprising amount of crunch.

To stay on the keto diet and get the most taste out of your food, order the wiener with mustard on the side and dip it early and often.

51. Side Salad from McDonald’s

You can’t go wrong with a healthy side salad from McDonald’s if you’re in a hurry and want something quick, easy, and keto-friendly to eat.

There is red lettuce, green lettuce, spinach, kale, tomato, and carrots in this salad.

Side Salad from McDonald's

Even though the taste won’t blow your mind, you can eat the whole salad and be happy that it only has 20 calories and 4 grams of carbs (according to McDonald’s).

If you want to add more taste to the mix, you could add some of McDonald’s Newman’s Own Ranch Dressing. But before you do, you should know that it will add 9 net carbs and 170 calories.

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

Sourdough Jack is without a doubt the best thing on the Jack in the Box menu. Could the Sourdough Jack be ordered without the sourdough bread?

Not even close. That is not only nonsensical, but it would also be sacrilegious and upset the fast-food gods.

Jumbo Jack without the bun from Jack in the Box

Instead of taking a chance, just order a Jumbo Jack without a bun. This meal will fill you up and taste good enough to keep you coming back for more.

When you’re starving and need fast food that fits in with your keto diet, a Jumbo Jack will hit the spot and fill you up.

49. Chili from Wendy’s

If it’s really cold outside and you need something to warm you up, Wendy’s chili will do the trick.

This soup is always good because it is made with fresh beef. In this bowl of goodness, you’ll find ground beef, chili peppers, green peppers, onions, celery, garlic powder, onion powder, pinto beans, kidney beans, and even more.

Chili from Wendy's

If you’re on a keto diet, stick to a small soup even though you’ll want to order the big one.

Even a small bowl of Wendy’s Chili has 16 net carbs. Also, don’t eat 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 can choose from four different styles: regular, extra crispy, spicy, or Kentucky grilled.

To be honest, Kentucky grilled is the least tasty option. The other three recipes are great, but they aren’t very keto-friendly, which is a shame.

Kentucky Grilled Chicken from KFC

But the good news is that a bucket of Kentucky grilled chicken is still so tasty that you’ll be licking your fingers until you’ve eaten every last piece.

If you don’t want to eat a whole bucket of chicken, KFC makes it easy to order a Kentucky-fried chicken breast on its own.

According to KFC, this chicken breast has about 38 grams of protein but no carbs.

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

It’s not easy to find a fast-food pizza that has low enough carbs to be considered keto-friendly.

If you go to the most popular pizza places, you probably won’t find what you’re looking for.

Because of this, we should all be glad that Papa Murphy’s makes the low-carb Papa’s Crustless All Meat pizza.

Papa's Crustless All Meat from Papa Murphy's

The high-carb crust is taken off this pizza to make it keto-friendly, but everything else you love about pizza is still there.

On Papa’s Crustless All Meat, you’ll find pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, ground beef, mozzarella cheese, and red sauce.

If you want to lower the sugar count even more, you can replace the red sauce with a mixture of garlic sauce and olive oil.

46. Burrito Supreme with no tortilla from Taco Bell

Some of the food at Taco Bell is surprisingly good and safe for a keto diet. Be aware, though, that you’ll have to do some research to make sure their food is good for keto.

For example, you can order a Burrito Supreme, but if you don’t want a tortilla, you’ll have to say so.

Even though it won’t be as easy to eat, you’ll still enjoy ground beef, cheese, sour cream, beans, tomatoes, onions, and everything else in a normal Burrito Supreme.

Burrito Supreme with no tortilla from Taco Bell

In fact, you probably won’t miss the tortilla at all, especially since Taco Bell’s tacos aren’t known for being very tasty.

If you want to make this Burrito Supreme with no tortillas more filling, you could order it with two servings of ground beef.

45. Club Tuna Unwich from Jimmy John’s

The tuna sandwiches at Subway and Jersey Mike’s are terrible and should be avoided at all costs. On the other hand, Jimmy John’s has a tuna sandwich that is really good.

It’s called a “Club Tuna Unwich,” and it will make you like tuna sandwiches from fast food places again.

This sandwich is covered in lettuce and has tuna salad, sliced tomatoes, and provolone cheese.

Club Tuna Unwich from Jimmy John's

The tuna salad at Jimmy John’s is made by people who work there, so it tastes fresher and more real than the fishy goop you can get at other sub places.

This Club Tuna Unwich has 500 calories, but only 7 net carbohydrates.

44. Butterburger with no bun from Culver’s

The best burger at the best burger company in the United States is the ButterBurger.

Keto fans are a little bummed that they can’t have the baked bun, but this menu item is still good enough to make this list.

To make up for the fact that the bun doesn’t have butter on it, make sure to ask for a lot of cheese.

Butterburger with no bun from Culver's

The cheese at Culver’s is so good that you won’t even notice that there’s no bread. Also, don’t be afraid to throw in bacon, mushrooms, pickles, mustard, or mayonnaise.

The ingredients at Culver’s are of a very good quality, so don’t be shy about taking advantage of that.

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

Okay, if you take the onion roll out of Arby’s Classic Beef ‘N Cheddar, things will get a little out of order.

To be honest, you have to get your space ready for the mess that will come.

But once you’ve eaten the Classic Beef ‘N Cheddar, you’ll agree that it was worth taking measures and going the extra mile.

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

With the cheddar sauce, red ranch sauce, and hand-sliced roast beef, you’ll be reminded that you can get great food from a drive-thru window.

Just make sure to grab a bunch of napkins to clean up the mess that will happen.

42. Traditional Wings from Zaxby’s

One of the best fast food places for chicken wings is Zaxby’s. Their chicken wings are always juicy and full of flavor.

If you want to cut down on carbs, get Zaxby’s Traditional Wings and leave off the sauce.

Traditional Wings from Zaxby's

You can eat five of these wings, which will add 380 calories and 3 grams of carbs to your diet. Adding sauce? Make it hot.

According to Zaxby’s, five of their Traditional Wings with Tongue Torch sauce only have 400 calories and 5 grams of carbs. That is not much to pay for a lot of taste.

41. Taquito with Cheese with no tortilla from Whataburger

Whataburger started in Texas, so it makes sense that it knows how to make Tex-Mex dishes like the Taquito with Cheese.

This amazing breakfast item looks like a burrito, but it’s full of eggs, American cheese, and your choice of protein.

If you’re on a keto diet, you should skip the potato choice and choose chorizo, bacon, or sausage instead.

Taquito with Cheese with no tortilla from Whataburger

You should also ask for your Taquito with Cheese to be served without a tortilla.

If you want to start the day with a good dose of heat, you can ask for it to be served Ranchero Picante Style with red salsa.

40. Big Mac with no bun from McDonald’s

You probably know that a McDonald’s Big Mac has two all-beef patties, cheese, lettuce, onions, pickles, and a special sauce on a sesame seed bun.

 Big Mac with no bun from McDonald's

This is because of the catchy song. This sandwich hasn’t changed much since it was first made in the 1960s, but to make it keto-friendly, you’ll have to get rid of the sesame seed bun.

You could get a Big Mac without the special sauce and save a few more carbs, but what’s the fun in that? Without the special sauce, it won’t even taste like a Big Mac anymore. Let it run.

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

The Cobb Salad at Chick-fil-A is one of the best salads you can get at a fast food restaurant.

To keep the keto gods happy, eat some kind of grilled chicken, like the grilled filet served cold, the hot grilled filet, or any other kind of grilled chicken.

Cobb Salad with grilled chicken from Chick-fil-A

You should also ask for no roasted corn, but the mixed greens, Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon pieces, and hard-boiled egg slices are all excellent.

The Cobb Salad comes with Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing, which is good for keto eaters because it only has three net carbs (according to Chick-fil-A).

38. Cold Brew from Dunkin’

Even though the cookies at Dunkin’ are not keto-friendly, there are several kinds of coffee that are.

For a number of reasons, the Cold Brew is the best pick. First of all, this coffee has no carbs unless you add something to it.

Second, the 12-hour process of boiling brings out a richness and a hint of sweetness that are harder to taste in hot coffee.

Cold Brew from Dunkin'

If you pay close enough attention, you can also taste a little bit of chocolate.

Lastly, you can drink Dunkin’s Cold Brew quickly or slowly throughout the day. This gives you a lot of options as you move through your day.

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

A bunless Dave’s Double from Wendy’s is another choice when you’re feeling hungry. It will fill you up so much that you might not need to eat for the rest of the day.

The two fresh beef patties are the main attraction. You get a half-pound of beef in total, and every time you order it, it tastes great.

Dave's Double with no bun from Wendy's

Dave’s Double also has two slices of American cheese, tomatoes, pickles, onions, lettuce, mayonnaise, and ketchup in addition to the meat.

Keto fans who want to cut a few carbs might be tempted to leave out the ketchup, but everything else is on the list of allowed foods.

36. Grilled Shrimp from Long John Silver’s

It can be hard to find fish at fast food restaurants that fits the keto diet and doesn’t cost a lot.

Most of the food at Long John Silver’s is fried, which means it has a lot of carbs. But there are a few things on the menu that keto eaters should be happy about.

Grilled Shrimp from Long John Silver's

Grilled Shrimp from Long John Silver is even better than it sounds. Before the shrimp is cooked, herbs and spices are added to spice things up.

Grilled salmon is another choice. Whether you should choose the shrimp or the salmon depends on what you like. Both have very few or no carbs and more taste than you might expect.

35. Grilled Chicken Taco with no tortilla from Del Taco

You get a lot for your money with the Grilled Chicken Taco from Del Taco. To make a taco keto-friendly, you just have to get rid of the bread.

Make sure the chicken and sauce mix together so that this taco without a bread tastes its best.

Since the Grilled Chicken Tacos are so cheap, you can eat three or four of them without worrying about breaking the bank.

34. Oven Roasted Turkey Bowl from Subway

One of Subway’s carb-heavy subs is easy to turn into a keto-friendly meal. Just ask for your favourite footlong to be turned into a bowl, and it will be.

All that means is that the bread is removed and everything inside is put into a bowl for you to eat.

Oven Roasted Turkey Bowl from Subway

Many of these bowls are fine for a keto diet, but the Oven Roasted Turkey Bowl is one of the best choices.

This beautiful beast has 25 grams of protein but only 5 net carbohydrates. You could eat a couple of these bowls every day without running out of carbs.

33. Grilled Nuggets from Chick-fil-A

Even though the Grilled Nuggets aren’t as interesting as Chick-fil-A’s regular Nuggets, which are breaded and then pressure-fried, you can’t really complain about them.

As the name suggests, these nuggets are perfectly cooked and have a natural smokey flavor that will win you over quickly.

Grilled Nuggets from Chick-fil-A

Even as you eat one after another, you don’t have to worry because 12 Grilled Nuggets only have 200 calories and 2 net carbs.

You could almost never eat too many of these things at once. Grab a packet of Zesty Buffalo Sauce if you need a dipping sauce because it only adds 1 carb to your meal.

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

If you’re trying to follow a keto diet, Carl’s Jr. has what you need. If you ask, the chain will put lettuce on any burger you choose.

We think the best thing to do is to order a Guacamole Bacon Angus Burger wrapped in lettuce. Your taste buds will be glad you made the right decision.

The lettuce-wrapped burger will have a charbroiled patty, multiple strips of bacon, gooey pepper Jack cheese, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, a Sante Fe Sauce that tastes like a mix of mayo and paprika, and a scoop of spicy guacamole.

A high-quality salad from Arby’s that is completely keto-friendly? Yes, you can get that at this fast-food restaurant, which is known for its roast beef that is cut to order.

It also comes with a buttermilk ranch sauce that is very tasty. Altogether, this salad from Arby’s has about 250 calories and only 5 net carbs.

40. Rotisserie Chicken from Boston Market

Before going on a keto diet, you might not have even thought to stop at Boston Market for fast food.

But once you know that keto is right for you, Boston Market is a great place to get food.

Its Rotisserie Chicken comes in big amounts, and because the meat has never been frozen, it tastes very fresh.

Rotisserie Chicken from Boston Market

When you eat 10 ounces of chicken, you get a whopping 70 grams of protein and only 1 net gram of carbohydrate.

Even though Boston Market sells more than just Rotisserie Chicken, if you are on a keto diet, you should focus on that.

29. Smoked Brisket Keto Bowl from Qdoba

The Smoked Brisket Keto Bowl is a new item on the menu at Qdoba, which has caught on to the keto trend.

This dish doesn’t lie about being keto-friendly, thank goodness. Slow-cooked beef brisket, store-bought guacamole, pico de gallo, shredded cheese, green salsa, and a bed of romaine salad are all in the bowl.

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

A place like Dairy Queen can be dangerous for someone who wants to follow the keto diet. From tasty Blizzards to banana splits, this place has a lot of things that could go wrong.

There is something at Dairy Queen that you can eat while on the keto diet that will make you smile from ear to ear.

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

Order the Bacon Two Cheese Deluxe Signature Stackburger without the bun.

This thing comes with American cheese, white cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, tomato, pickles, onion, lettuce, and mayo. You can get it with double or triple meat.

The savory tastes in this burger will make you forget that Dairy Queen is best known for its sweet treats.

27. Whopper with no bun from Burger King

Sometimes, all you want is the taste of flame-grilled meat, which the Whopper from Burger King has plenty of.

To make this meal keto-friendly, you’ll have to leave out the bun, but that doesn’t change the taste of the flame-charred meat. If anything, moving the bread makes it better.

Usually, a Whopper comes with pieces of tomato, onions, pickles, lettuce, mayo, and ketchup.

Keeping all of that on there will give you 430 calories and 9 net carbs, according to Fatsecret.

If you leave out the tomato pieces and ketchup, your Whopper without the bun will still taste great and have even less carbs.

26. Southwest Avocado Salad from Culver’s

There are a few salads at Culver’s that are great for people on the keto diet who don’t want another boring fast food salad.

Even though you’ll have to make some changes here and there, they’re simple and easy to remember.

If you don’t eat the tortilla strips, the Southwest Avocado Salad has only 5 net carbs. Even without the tortilla strips, you’ll have plenty to do with the avocado, chicken, and chopped feta.

The Cranberry Bacon Bleu Salad with Grilled Chicken is another choice at Culver’s.

If you leave out the dried cranberries and focus on the crumbled bleu cheese and chopped bacon, this delicious salad has only 3 net carbs.

25. Broccoli Beef from Panda Express

Your mother always told you to eat your veggies. Now, keto followers can make Mom happy (and make their mouths water) by ordering Panda Express’s healthy Broccoli Beef.

This dish comes with ginger soy sauce-glazed meat and, of course, broccoli.

Even though the ginger soy sauce makes the Broccoli Beef dish pretty sweet, it only has 11 net carbs.

Broccoli Beef from Panda Express

Don’t even think about getting rid of the ginger soy sauce, because it’s what makes this meal worth eating.

It not only makes the soft beef taste better, but it also makes the broccoli taste so much better that you’ll gladly eat every last bit of green.

23. Iced Coffee from Starbucks

Starbucks has a lot of coffee choices that are low in carbs, as long as you know how to use the menu in a way that works for keto.

Start with an Iced Coffee from Starbucks if you’re new to the game. This drink is the most forgiving.

Iced Coffee from Starbucks

You can change it up without adding too many carbs by adding heavy cream or half-and-half, using sugar-free vanilla syrup, sweetening it with Splenda or stevia, or topping it with whipped cream.

Getting used to Starbucks with a keto attitude takes some practice, but you’ll get the hang of it in the end.

23. Double Cheeseburger with no bun from Burger King

When it comes to finding the best keto fast food, the Double Cheeseburger from Burger King checks a lot of boxes.

First, this burger doesn’t cost a lot. To give you an idea, a Double Cheeseburger from Burger King generally costs less than half as much as a Whopper (via Fast Food Menu Prices).

Second, it comes with two slices of American cheese, which is a taste enhancer that is safe for people on the keto diet.

Third, you just need to throw away the bun and everything else on the burger is ready to rock your keto world.

Lastly, you know how good the Whopper is because it is flame-grilled? This cheaper burger almost tastes the same as the expensive one.

22. Burrito Bowl from Moe’s Southwest Grill

If you did the hard (but tasty) work of trying every Mexican fast-food chain in the country, you’d finally come to the conclusion that Moe’s Southwest Grill is the best of the best.

Everything on the menu is fresh and tastes better than anything else. This is a place you should go out of your way to see.

If you are on a keto diet, you should avoid tortillas and chips and instead eat a personalized Burrito Bowl.

Burrito Bowl from Moe's Southwest Grill

After you choose your meal (steak, pork, ground beef, tofu, white meat chicken, or adobo chicken), you should skip the rice and the beans.

Instead, pile on keto-friendly toppings like cheese, pico de gallo, grilled peppers, grilled onions, sour cream, black olives, pickled jalapeo peppers, and parsley.

You could even pay extra to add bacon or salsa to your Burrito Bowl.

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

When you take the bun off of a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, a funny thing happens: it tastes better.

Even if you’ve had this popular McDonald’s burger a lot and weren’t too pleased, you might be surprised at how good it tastes without the bun.

Quarter Pounder with Cheese with no bun from McDonald's

Some burgers can’t stand on their own without bread, but a Quarter Pounder with Cheese has a surprising number of different tastes.

If you’re on the keto diet and want a fast-food burger fix, don’t forget about McDonald’s.

19. Sub in a tub from Jersey Mike’s

At Jersey Mike’s, all you have to do to make a sub into a keto-friendly meal is ask for it “in a tub.”

This is so easy to do and makes such tasty food that a video of a sub in a tub went viral on TikTok.

Sub in a tub from Jersey Mike's

If you’re not sure which sub to get at Jersey Mike’s, go for the BLT. Add any other vegetables you like to the bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

Go with the Number Four if you want to try a sub in a tub at its best. The mix of prosciuttini, cappacuolo, and provolone on this “monster” sub is well known.

18. Bacon Cheeseburger with no bun from Five Guys

Five Guys is a popular burger place that puts such a high value on freshness that it doesn’t even have freezers.

At Taco Bell, the beef and chicken go together like peanut butter and jelly, and the jalapeo peppers and onions add depth to the taste that will make your day.

15. Spicy Italian Bowl from Subway

Even though Subway has a lot of great sandwiches, Spicy Italian is the best one. So it makes sense that the Spicy Italian Bowl would also be at the top of its class.

The Genoa salami and pepperoni will be your favourite parts of this bowl, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop there.

Spicy Italian Bowl from Subway

Add oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, pickles, banana peppers, black olives, lettuce, spinach, and your choice of cheese.

12. Atomic Wings from Wingstop

Wingstop is the best chain for chicken wings, and its Atomic Wings are the best choice for people who like to try new things.

This is by far the chain’s most popular taste (via Wingstop). Even though the spice level is through the roof, the taste of the fire is just as tasty.

Atomic Wings from Wingstop

You might get sweaty from these wings, but you’ll love every minute of the roller coaster ride.

The nutrition page for the company says that 10 Wingstop Atomic Wings have only 10 net carbs.

If these wings are a little too spicy for you, you can dip them in blue cheese or ranch from Wingstop. The number of carbs in both of these soups is low.

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

A McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin with Egg can come with a good or bad English muffin. It can be hot and just the right amount of crispy.

Sometimes it’s a crumbly mess that doesn’t do anything but make the sandwich feel dry. Instead of taking a chance, just don’t eat the muffin.

Sausage McMuffin with Egg without the muffin from McDonald's

So, this item on McDonald’s menu is a huge keto win. Without the bad muffin, you’re left with a sausage patty, a slice of melty American cheese, and a perfectly cooked egg burger.

10. Keto Bowl from Chipotle

Lifestyle Bowls is a section of Chipotle’s menu that has food for people on different diets, such as Whole30, raw, vegan, and yes, keto.

The chain’s Keto Bowl looks and tastes even better than it looks. The base of this food is crispy greens, guacamole, salsa made with tomatillos, shredded cheese, and either chicken or steak.

Keto Bowl from Chipotle

You can’t go wrong with either protein. Steak is more filling, but chicken has more taste per ounce.

If you’ve never had the guac at Chipotle, you’re in for a treat. This stuff is famous for a reason.

It is made with avocados, onions, jalapeo peppers, parsley, and citrus juice instead of tomatoes.

9. Baconator with no bun from Wendy’s

On a keto diet, bacon is everyone’s best friend. Because of this, no one should be surprised that Wendy’s Baconator made it into the top ten.

This famous burger is the best way to get bacon-filled goodness from a drive-thru window.

Baconator with no bun from Wendy's

If you’ve never had a Baconator before, it has six bits of smoked bacon, a half-pound of beef that has never been frozen, American cheese, mayonnaise, and ketchup.

You could add greens to this burger if you order it without a bun, or you could just enjoy the taste of the beef and bacon without any extras.

8. Keto pizza from Blaze Pizza

Papa Murphy’s should be praised for at least trying to make life easier for keto eaters with their crustless pizza, but Blaze Pizza went one step further.

Instead of going without a crust, Blaze Pizza makes a keto-friendly pizza with cauliflower rice, mozzarella cheese, eggs, flaxseed, and other ingredients.

Keto pizza from Blaze Pizza

On top of the unexpectedly tasty crust, your keto pizza will have red sauce, mozzarella cheese, bacon, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach.

7. Vito Unwich from Jimmy John’s

If you love Jimmy John’s Vito sub sandwich, you will definitely love the Vito Unwich.

This new food doesn’t have any bread, but it does have hand-sliced capicola, salami, and provolone cheese.

There is also lettuce, tomato, onion, thyme, basil, oil, and vinegar. You could change the Vito Unwich even more, but why mess with a good thing?

Sure, in a dream world where bread didn’t have carbs, you’d choose the Vito sub sandwich over a Vito Unwich because it’s better.

But in a world where bread is the worst thing for people on a keto diet, this will always make you feel better.

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

If you order a fried chicken patty at most fast food places, you’ll have a boring time. Most chicken pieces cooked on a grill are dull, tasteless, and could bore you to death.

Chick-fil-A isn’t just any fast-food chain, thank goodness. It’s a high-end chicken chain that knows how to cook chicken the best way.

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

The Grilled Chicken Sandwich from Chick-fil-A doesn’t need much help to be a great diet choice.

Just skip the bun and maybe add some mayo. So far, that’s all you need to do. The lemon, herb, and spicy tastes of the grilled chicken breast will stay with you for a long time.

5. Greek Salad from Panera Bread

If you follow the keto diet, Panera Bread might sound like a place you shouldn’t eat at.

For people who follow the keto diet, the word “bread” is a sin, so Panera Bread should be avoided, right?
