For the low-carb dieter, Marie Callender’s restaurant does exactly one thing right. And they do it so well that it’s nearly enough to recommend it, but not quite. For those on a low-carb diet, Marie Callender’s won’t be your first choice, but if you do a little on-line recon first, and carefully plan your meal, you won’t go hungry.
Slater’s 50/50 Restaurant: The first thing you notice as the food arrives is a steak knife stabbed through the heart of each meal, standing upright and proud.

A Brazilian Churrascaria is an all-you-can-eat steakhouse, commonly referred to as a Brazilian Steakhouse. Just let that sink in a moment. Steak, all you can eat. And they don’t just serve steaks. In addition to bacon-wrapped filet mignon; marinated skirt steak, tri-tip; top sirloin; garlic beef; rib eye; and smoked short ribs, the selection also includes Polish sausage; BBQ chicken thighs; marinated pork loin; and marinated lamb. All you can eat.

After 2 years on the Atkins diet, you’d think I’d learn not to be disappointed when a restaurant doesn’t meet my expectations of a good selection of food for the low-carb high-fat dieter. But it seems that every time I visit a new restaurant, even if I like the food served, it comes up short. Outback Steakhouse is no exception.
