The Top Swap at Chili’s

Chili’s serves up some of the country’s saltiest, fattiest, most calorie-laden fare, from tacos and salads to baby back ribs. Worst among the offenders are the burgers, fajitas, and appetizers, including the 1,760-calorie Texas Cheese Fries. The Lighter Choices menu is Chili’s attempt at healthier meals, but with only a handful of options and a sky-high average sodium count, nothing at Chili’s will make you look particularly hot.

At Chili’s—where the average burger plate packs more than 1,700 calories—creating your own steak combo is the safest way to meet your meat craving. Just be sure to stay away from 400-calorie accompaniments like the fries and Loaded Mashed Potatoes.
