Every year, the Center for Science in the Public Interest gives out its “Xtreme Eating Awards” to the LEAST HEALTHY things chain restaurants are serving up around the country. And I really need to stop viewing it as a to-do list.
Here are some of this year’s winners . . .
- IHOP’s Cheeseburger Omelette with a side of pancakes, at 1,990 calories.
- Buffalo Wild Wings’ Cheese Curd Bacon Burger with fries, at 1,950 calories. That’s about the same as eating five bacon double cheeseburgers at Burger King.
- The Carnivore Pizzadilla appetizer at Dave & Buster’s, which is the combination of a meat lover’s pizza and a quesadilla, at 1,970 calories.
- Cheesecake Factory’s Pasta Napoletana, at 2,310 calories . . . making it worse for you than eating an entire pizza.
- The loaded sweet potato at Texas Roadhouse, which might make you think you’re adding a vegetable to your meal . . . but adds 770 calories.
- And the Flying Gorilla cocktail from Cheesecake Factory, which is a 950-calorie alcoholic milkshake. (Consumerist)
