Green Leaf Cafe & Coffee Bar

Green Leaf Cafe & Coffee Bar We have been hearing about this place from fellow Keto-ers for the past couple of weeks, so just stopped in there and talked Keto for a bit. It’s an adorable little eatery, and they gave us a menu so we could look at what they have to offer. They don’t have a website (yet) but they do have a Facebook page which shows lots of their menu items, and their menu itself. It’s located in the little strip mall at 512 Ellis Blvd Unit U. A domed cake plate of Keto balls (a/k/a “fat Read More ...

Chili’s Grill & Bar in Jefferson City and Columbia

Chili’s Grill & Bar in Jefferson City and Columbia The first time we went to Chili’s after going Keto, we opted for the 6 oz. steak with broccoli and the side salad, and it was really good! And really Keto. I went again for lunch this week and splurged on the steak fajitas which I ordered without the beans, rice, and tortillas. Of course, I declined the chips and salsa the server offered to bring out. And I had  enough food to bring home for dinner that night. (The featured photo is of their “combination fajitas” which includes steak, chicken, Read More ...

El Espolon Mexican Restaurant in Jefferson City

El Espolon Mexican Restaurant in Jefferson City A great Mexican restaurant at two locations in Jefferson City as well as other cities in Missouri.  I love their steak fajitas (pictured are the chicken fajitas), which I order without the rice, beans and tortillas and it is so big I still have leftovers! I may order a side of guacamole because it is so good! Another favorite for both of us is their Carne Asada (which is their steak meal) which we order without beans and rice or tortillas. Hubby orders without the cooked onions and peppers because he has an Read More ...

Theo’s Midtown in Jefferson City

Theo’s Midtown in Jefferson City Jefferson City has been blessed with several great Greek eateries and this is the newest one, operated by one of the original purveyors of Greek cuisine. It’s a fun place to go! Although it is famous for its pizzas, you could eat Keto there quite easily by custom ordering. I have had their Greek salad with their pork on it, but the lamb or chicken would also be great. Order the dressing on the side. You could also order a gyro minus the pita and pile on some of their specialty meats with some veggies Read More ...

Oscar’s Classic Diner in Jefferson City

Oscar’s Classic Diner in Jefferson City Anyone living in Jefferson City for any length of time will recognize the name of Oscar’s as a Jefferson City tradition. It was established in 1948 and was “the” place to eat out all through the 1950s. Even though it closed down after 23 years, it reopened in 2004 in a new building at a new location, but with the same early charm of a classic diner, and the famous 1950s Oscar’s fare was back! There is plenty on their menu you can order and stay true to Keto. Breakfast is standard, and you Read More ...
