Worst Foods in America

• 23 January 2009


Bitten, a blog in the New York Time's Dining & Wine section, shares with readers the 20 Worst Foods in America. Aren't you just a little curious? I was.

All I can say {after reading the list] is I am grateful I've boycotted Chili's for about 8 years now. However, I admit I was surprised that Macaroni Grill menu items made it on this list several times. I haven't eaten there for almost a decade, but from what I remember, it was pretty yummy for a chain restaurant. Either I am remembering incorrectly or they've gone downhill since...

In any case I think it's always better to support local restaurants versus chains. You end up with better, healthier food in the end. Awhile back I posted about my favorite restaurants here in Salt Lake City...if you're looking for a new date night option check these out.

I feel a little sick reading all of that. I'm totally boycotting places like that, most of them I already have!

You have to remember that most of these entrees have extremely large portions(which explains why America is so obese), so if you actually only eat a 1/3-1/2 of what you are served, the nutrition is reasonable, not the best but reasonable.

Oooh, I look forward to reading this. And if I had not eaten at Macaroni Grill in the past 5 or so years, I would also be surprised, but since I have, I can agree...it's totally gone downhill, unfortunately. So it's a good thing it hasn't lured you back recently. ;)

Steph,

I am absolutely appalled by this list. What an "eye-opener". Thanks for the post. No more Quizno's tuna melts for me..... and to think, I thought I was making a healthy choice. I'm disgusted right now...

I just recently bought the book related to this site. It's a quick, informative little book that gives you some good suggestons of better things to order at those restaurants. Who knew that onion rings were healthier than french fries?
