    The UNHEALTHIEST restaurant in every state

    I can say that I have dined in at least one of these restaurants over the years (perhaps more than once). I didn't order the items on this list - but I can attest that the food we did eat was tasty at the time.

    All this does is confirm our belief that "calories = flavor", or as some chefs have said, "brown food tastes good"

    Scrolling down the list, let me sum up for you:
    • burger (11 entries)
    • nachos (4 entries)
    • donut (2 entries)
    • hot dog (4 entries)
    • vegetable!!! (1 entry)
    • pancakes (1 entry)
    • bacon (1 entry)
    • pizza (6 entries)
    • breakfast (3 entries)
    • steak (2 entries)
    • tater tots (2 entries)
    • BBQ (3 entries)
    • Grilled cheese (2 entries)
    • ravioli (1 entry)
    • burrito (1 entry)
    • macaroni salad (1 entry)
    • poutine (1 entry)
    • pie (1 entry)
    • Chuck Norris (1 entry)
    • "fine neanderthal cuisine" (1 entry)
    • Dessert (1 entry)
    (I think that adds up to 50 entries. I may have miscounted)


    I gotta say, that's one lazy list.

    I scrolled through quickly, saw they picked Outback Steakhouse for one state, picked Red Robin for another... someone ain't never BEEN to most of these states.

    Here's my vote for my local state (Oklahoma) - Patriot Cafe in Sapulpa.

      I agree... Colorado has tons of great unhealthy options... heart attack in Vegas is a cheap shot, it's in the name! But there are MUCH worse in Vegas. NC they pick a Burger joint? Hello this is the land of fried foods, tons of options and none of them are burger joints!

    Ha! I was looking for the restaurants with the most health department violations! Different meaning for "unhealthiest".

    This looks like a list of places to visit!


      Outback Steakhouse and Red Robin. Really? I would hope they could dig a little deeper than that.

      However, many of those plates look damn good to me. Especially the Munchies 420 spot in FL. I love burgers like that.


        We are the burrito!


          I almost wonder how much it cost to get included on this list. Would any of us have heard of Munchies in Sarasota without it?


            it's almost a list of "here's a bunch of places with really tasty things".

            We refer to Red Robin and Outback as sometimes places. As in, "sometimes we'll go there, if there's absolutely nothing else available in the area". On the other hand, unlimited fries at RR.

            They're definitely steps above applebee's when traveling in unfamiliar territory (although we do grant that in some parts of the country, Applebee's may be the only real restaurant in the area. Friends would tell us about going to prom dinner at the local steak cafeteria place (think ponderosa or bonanza, but not as classy) -- because where they lived, that local place was the only place serving a decent steak.


              I would like to eat all that. Looks great to me.


                Buyer beware. Unhealthy is in the eye of the one placing their order.


                  Not the best list, but I have a huge soft spot for the MD selection. When I was a college student that carb loaded bomb was the ultimate hangover cure.


                    You know there's one thing about being old, you can say f...k it to healthy

                      Hahahahaha, and most people!!

                    I have had a garbage plate from Rochester NY and I’ll admit it is unhealthy. It is delicious also.

                      I've had that. Soooo good!

                    Wow! There are a lot worse places calorie and fat wise in Texas than the Amarillo steakhouse listing.🤣


                      what's really crazy is that the individual items by themselves really aren't that horrible for you.

                      A lot has to do with the amount of butter, sugar, or fried/oil used in the cookery. So many of those restaurant dishes, when any of us make similar plates at home, are significantly (tastier, for sure) lower in calories and fats than what's presented on the above list.


                        Seriously lame list. Not one chicken shack . . . . seriously ? And a Famous Dave's in Wisconsin? Wisconsin is the home of deep fried cheese curds and brats. Come on man.

                        I was very happy to see Hillbilly Hotdogs in West Virginia. They have a dog there called the Homewrecker that could support its own Mayo clinic. "Jalapeños, sautèed, peppers and onions, nacho cheese, habenero, chili sauce, mustard, slaw, lettuce, tomato, and shredded cheese, piled high on a 15-inch, 1-pound all beef weenie in a big 'ol bun!"

                          Seems to have a lot of vegetables on it, how bad could it be?

                      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
