Red Robin Is Home To The Nation’s Most Unhealthy Meal

Congrats, Red Robin! It looks like you’re the creator of the unhealthiest meal in America, according to USA Today. The Center for Science in the Public Interest recently released a report that stated that the “Monster” double burger, the “bottomless” fries and a “Monster” milkshake add up to a whopping 3,450 calories. That, for the record, is a whole lotta calories. The Cheesecake Factory was also mentioned in the study, which isn’t surprising since they are perpetually at the top of these unhealthy food lists.

Denny Marie Post, Red Robin’s chief marketing officer, noted that the meal “combines some of our most indulgent items into one meal.” She also adds that the restaurant does serve healthier items, and that patrons can order “a lettuce-wrapped turkey burger, sans cheese and bun, with a side of broccoli and a light lemonade” that only has 540 calories. But we’re pretty sure that’s on the menu just so marketing officers can say “we serve healthier items too.”
