Red Robin 'monster' meal named unhealthiest in America
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the unhealthiest restaurant meal in America.
Red Robins monster meal -- an A.1. Peppercorn gourmet burger with two 6 oz. beef patties, unlimited steak fries and a Monster Salted Caramel Milkshake -- has won the dubious honor in the Center for Science in the Public Interests annual Xtreme Eating Awards.
The report compares the 3,540-calorie meal -- nearly two days worth of calories for the average person -- to eating seven McDonalds Double Cheeseburgers washed down with a quart of Coke. Working it off is as simple as a brisk 12-hour walk, the report says.
One of the worst offenders was The Cheesecake Factory, which took three of nine awards. The restaurant chains Bruleed French toast packs in 2,780 calories and 93 grams of saturated fat. The dish is served with grilled French bread that is baked, topped with powdered sugar and served with maple butter syrup alongside bacon or grilled ham.
Other restaurants called out in this years awards include Famous Daves, BJs Restaurant and Brewhouse, Chevys Fresh Mex, Joes Crab Shack and Maggianos Little Italy.
