Sonic Ring Leader Loaded Burger Double Patty 1,660 calories 120 g fat (44 g saturated, 4 g trans) 1,450 mg sodium
The recent unveiling of
this menacing half-pound burger marks a new low for a chain that already suffers
from an iffy reputation. The bacon strips and onion rings will receive much of
the criticism, but it's the less flashy components that hold the hidden danger.
In fact, the two slices of cheddar cheese and the double slather of mayo
account for a third of the fat. (Then there's the "bun oil" Sonic
squeezes on.) If you need a burger fix, there are less perilous ways to get it.

1. Worst Burger in America
Chili’s Jalapeño Smokehouse Bacon Burger 1,910 calories 126 g fat (43 g saturated) 5,290 mg sodium
This tricked-out number is
the worst of the worst of Chili's' burger behemoths. It comes saddled with
tortilla strips, bacon, cheddar, mayo, and jalapeno-ranch dressing, the
combined impact of which is more than 2 days' worth of saturated fat and as
much sodium as you'd find in 6 pounds of McDonald's French fries. No wonder it made our list of the 8 Scariest Restaurant Meals in America!
