The most unhealthy restaurant dishes in the US

Restaurants that made the list include The Cheesecake Factory, Buffalo Wild Wings, and IHOP. "This dish has sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, and bacon on a pasta that's absolutely covered in butter and cream".

While many restaurants already list calorie ranges on their menus, rules that would have required all chains with 20 or more locations to list calorie counts on menus or menu boards were delayed by the Trump administration just a week before they were set to go into effect in May. The dish packs 67 grams of saturated fat and 4,700 mg of sodium, the equivalent of 100 slices of pepperoni layered atop two Taco Bell Cheese Quesadillas or half a stick of butter melted over three McDonald's Quarter Pounders with Cheese, the CSPI said.

The Cheese Curd Bacon Burger includes battered deep-fried cheese curds, with extra cheese, two bacon strips, and slathered with a spicy-mayo sauce.

The list includes IHOP's 2,000-calorie breakfast of meat-topped omelette with hash browns, tomatoes, onions, cheese and a side of syrup-soaked pancakes. And the ever-Xtreme Cheesecake Factory adds just enough alcohol to make you forget that your glass contains 950 calories.

Adults, on average, should be consuming between 1,600 and 2,400 calories a day, but some of these restaurant meals could shatter your daily allowance with one plate.

"How can we turn a meat lover's pizza into a pasta?" asked Donald Moore, Chief Culinary Officer at The Cheesecake Factory, in a Facebook Live video in March.

CSPI says the Pasta Napoletana is like a meat-lover's pizza with three cups of pasta and a cup of heavy cream. "Many of our guests come in and want to celebrate and not be concerned with calories".

"All of this year's extreme eating award winners, all of the entrees we looked at have about a day's calories or more". If Caesar salad is the second side the meal will have 2,820 calories, 72 grams of saturated fat, 5,330 mg of sodium and an estimated 51 grams of added sugar. Others want to share their dish - and we love it when guests share - that's a great sign that our portions are generous - and a large percentage of our guests take home leftovers for lunch the next day. "We can safely say that the world has never before witnessed "a super-cheesy 12" quesadilla served pizza-style in eight slices, stuffed with Manchego and cheddar cheeses, pepperoni, and Italian sausage, then topped with even more pepperoni and Italian sausage, plus bacon, marinara, and mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses".

Texas Roadhouse's 770-calorie sweet potato side was given the "most damage from a supporting vegetable award" by CSPI, which said it normally aporoves of sweet potatoes, but not when they're sweetened further with mini marshmallows and caramel sauce. That's before you choose your two sides.

CSPI said that was the equivalent of eating two of the chain's 12-ounce NY strip steak dinners (with mashed potatoes and vegetables) and a slice of strawberry cheesecake.

Most calorie-packed dessert: Uno Pizzeria and Grill's appropriately named Ridiculously Awesome, Insanely Large Chocolate Cake harbors 1,740 calories and an estimated 168 grams of added sugar.
