3 Jimmy John's unwich sandwiches sitting on table

Jimmy John’s is freaky fast and freaky keto.

And with locations popping up all over the U.S., it’s good to know what to order when you’re going low-carb and/or keto.

In one word? Unwich. This Jimmy John’s grab-and-go sandwich kicks bread to the curb and instead subs in large, tightly-wrapped lettuce leaves and paper to hold everything together. I’ve eaten a few of these on the run and love ’em! They’re delicious, filling, and easy to handle.

Here’s a peek at Jimmy John’s nutritional guide.

The basics tenets of successful Jimmy John’s ordering:

  • Avoid bread, chips, and cookies.
  • Watch the giant dill pickle as it’s 4 carbs.
  • When in doubt about condiments, ask for mayonnaise.
  • For drinks, stick with water or Diet Coke products.
  • Lettuce per Unwich adds about 1g Fiber, so subtract that from total carbs (below) if you count net carbs.

    This is my go to place for a un-sub. Subway looks at you like you are nuts if you ask for a lettuce wrap. Love JJ!

  2. Shawn Hangman

    yup that JJ is my go to, i just had the gargantuan!

  3. Lynn

    For information; Applebee’s now offers any burger wrapped in lettuce, instead of a bun, (it’s actually printed on the menu). Request to sub fries with broccoli and you’re good to go!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you, Lynn!

  4. Lisa Liguori

    When in doubt choose mustard. You don’t know what the mayo is really made with.

    • Joe

      Its helmets mayp

      • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

        Yes Joe, your right. They do use hellmann’s mayo.
