BWW Naked Tenders
The Buffalo Wild Wings Naked Tenders are another great keto option. NAKED without sauce or seasoning, you are looking at ZERO carbs. That’s right, no carbs – but typically you will want a sauce or seasoning.
Looking for a Buffalo Wild Wings keto side item? One of your best bets is the veggie slaw.

What NOT To Order
Now that you know WHAT to order, let’s look at things to avoid ordering at BWW if you are on a low carb or keto diet.
These food options maybe yummy and you may THINK they are low carb, but watch out. The carbs are hiding!
While you may think the boneless wings would be keto friendly, think again! The boneless wings 5 count, has approximately 16 net carbs. While not the worse thing in the world – definitely NOT the best low carb option on the Buffalo Wilds Wings menu.
Hand Breaded Tenders
I think the word BREADED should have been a clue to avoid ordering the hand breaded tenders. If not, and you really need to know the carb count – you are looking at approximately 34 net carbs for the 3-count or approximately 56 net carbs for the 5-count. Stick with the naked tenders!
BWW Cheddar Cheese Curds with Southwestern Ranch Dressing
Oh CHEESE! Surely these BWW cheese curds are keto? NOPE. Sorry friends. Cheddar Cheese Curds Buffalo Wild Wings style are battered and we all know that battered means NOT low carb.
Surely that’s a YES in regards to Buffalo Wild Wings keto, right? WRONG! Sorry friends, you are looking at 20 net carbs. You could order and eat maybe 25% and only have to deal with 5 net carbs.
Salad As Is
WHAT? I can’t order a salad? No, didn’t say that – but like anytime you eat a salad on keto – you will want to watch what is put on the salad! Ask for specifics.
Veggie Boat with Fat Free Ranch Dressing
A veggie boat may sound keto friendly, but I hate to deliver bad news – as is, this will cost you 19 net carbs. I will say, I believe a lot of these carbs are coming from the fat free ranch dressing. Switch out the fat free ranch dressing for regular ranch dressing (which will taste better) and save yourself around 9 net carbs!
Fried Pickles with Southwestern Ranch Dressing
But aren’t pickles keto friendly? YES – but not when dressed up in flour and fried! Stay away from the fried pickles if you are eating keto. The fried pickles are 60 net carbs. That’s right, SIXTY.
