25 Worst New Restaurant Dishes in America

Put down your fork and step away from the menu. These are the most health-harming foods to hit restaurants so far in 2016.

As Americans become more and more health conscious, restaurant chefs seem to become more skilled at dreaming up new caloric dishes—many of which are disguised as healthy picks. And this year, the new diet bombs are among the most dangerous we've ever seen. Though many of the dishes you'll find below don't exactly sound like they'd be healthy (Pop Tart ice cream sandwich, anyone?!), we'd be willing to bet that they're far more harmful to your health and weight loss efforts than you'd ever imagine.

Do yourself a favor and peruse the list below and steer clear of these dietary disasters. And while you're at it, read up on these 20 Worst Breakfasts in America, too. This way you can order smart no matter what time of day you go out to eat!

Applebee's Salsa Verde Beef Nachos

1,800 calories, 122 g fat, 53 g saturated fat, 6,090 mg sodium, 109 carbs, 9 g fiber, 14 g sugars, 71 g protein

Even if you split this tray of beef- and queso-topped nachos with two friends, you'd still take in nearly an entire day's worth of salt—and that's before your entrée arrives. And let me tell you, pretty much every main dish at Applebee's is a major salt mine. It may not always be on the menu, but if chips are what you crave before your meal arrives, ask for a simple order of chips and salsa. Even if you downed the entire order on your own, this simple swap would save you 1,300 calories and 3,090 milligrams of sodium! And speaking of the salty stuff, learn everything you need to know about the mineral in our exclusive report 17 Things You Need to Know About Salt.

Olive Garden Pot Pie Italiano Nonna's Kitchen Sink

1,670 calories, 99 g fat, 45 g saturated fat, 2,910 mg sodium, 126 g carbs, 10 g fiber, 10 g sugars, 70 g protein

If you're at all concerned with health or nutrition, you should consider the phrase "kitchen sink" code for "do not eat this"—and this dish is a prime example as to why. Nonna filled a starch- and carb-laden pie crust with, you guessed it, even more fat and carbs! She starts by loading it up with cheese and baked ziti and then goes wild with the meats, adding meatballs, sausage, and a hearty meat sauce, too, because, you know, one source of artery-clogging fat wasn't enough. Our Eat This! swap will give you the hearty meat and noodle combo your taste buds crave—without causing your cholesterol numbers to soar.

Chili's Loaded Boneless Wings

1,450 calories, 99 g fat, 30 g saturated fat, 3,660 mg sodium, 66 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 6 g sugar, 74 g protein

Like "kitchen sink," "loaded" is another one of those terms that indicate that a meal is no-good, in terms of nutrition. Chili's Loaded Wings are smothered in white queso, a three-cheese blend, applewood smoked bacon, ranch dressing, and some chopped green onions, you know, to fit some vitamins in. (Sensing the sarcasm?) The result of these no-good foods joining forces on one plate? An app that packs as many calories as six McDonald's hamburgers and more fat than 30 slices of sizzling bacon! Making a switch to a dressed-down chicken app saves you 900 calories and 68 grams of heart-harming fat.

Longhorn Steakhouse Steak Frites

1,040 calories, 57 g fat, 20 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat, 2,020 mg sodium, 71 g carbs, 7 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 62 g protein

Don't be fooled by the fancy French name; this dish is really just French fries paired with a fatty cut of steak. If those two elements weren't bad enough, the chefs at Longhorn drench it in something called a bordelaise sauce. Sure, it sounds sophisticated but it's just a mixture of fatty and caloric ingredients like wine, bone marrow, and butter. When all's said and done, this steak dinner manages to carry more than an entire day's trans fat; and remember: that's the most dangerous fat in all the land (and one that we named one of these Worst Food Additives in America. What makes it so scary? A 2014 Brazilian animal study found that the man-made fat can harden and narrow of the arteries, the two primary causes of heart attacks and strokes.

Friendly's Forbidden Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich Made With Frosted Fudge Pop Tarts

582 calories, 20 g fat, 9 g saturated fat, 522 mg sodium, 93 g carbs, 52 g sugar, 2 g fiber, 10 g protein

In terms of calories, fat, and sugar, we can't deny that there are definitely far worse desserts in restaurant land, but we can't ignore the facts: this is a sandwich made out of two full-sized Frosted Fudge Pop-Tarts, ice cream, and sprinkles. It doesn't get more decadent than that! To shave off some calories while still indulging your sweet tooth, opt or a scoop of Hunka Chunk Peanut Butter Fudge ice cream in a sugar cone instead. And to slow down the absorption of the sweet stuff, top it off with some protein-filled walnuts. Hey, you knew we'd sneak some nutrition in there somewhere, right?

860 calories, 29 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat, 980 mg sodium, 131 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 71 g sugars, 19 g protein

If your breakfast looks like a dessert, it's a very good sign it's probably bad for you. This stack of Cinnabon-inspired French toast has more of the sweet stuff than 11 Chips Ahoy cookies! That's enough to give even the biggest junk-food kid a major sugar rush—and a subsequent crash that will make it near impossible to muster up the energy to power through the rest of the day.

1,030 calories, 48 g fat, 13 g saturated fat, 2,560 mg sodium, 98 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 8 g sugars, 46 g protein

P.F. Chang's new fried rice dish is topped with wild-caught lobster tail, shrimp, shiitake mushroom, egg, and edamame—all healthy stuff. The problem: they portion out way too much of each ingredient and cook each food in a ton of fat. For a lighter seafood dish, try the shrimp with lobster sauce. The order will save you an impressive 650 calories! For even more easy ways to slash calories and lose weight, check out these 25 Ways to Cut 250 Calories.

1,060 calories, 65 g fat, 16 g saturated fat, 2,660 mg sodium, 84 g carbs, 4 g fiber, 13 g sugars, 35 g protein

Two strips of honey jalapeño bacon, two eggs cooked to order, two pancakes, and a pile hash browns, is what will be delivered to your table when you place an order for Denny's Honey Jalapeño Bacon Slam. All that, and an entire day's worth of salt and fat, too—not exactly what we'd call the breakfast of champions.

702 calories, 36 g fat, 12 g saturated fat, 1,602 mg sodium, 180 g carbs, 6 g fiber, N/A g sugars, 36 g protein (individual size)

An individual size pizza for over 700 calories?! Yeah, that's not so great for your gut. If you want to give this Alfredo sauce, spinach, sausage, mushrooms and roasted chicken breast concoction a try, definitely split it with someone else and tack on a veggie platter to your order for some added nutrition. If you're really in the mood to face an entire mini pie on your own (to each his own!), stick with the cheese pizza. It will shave off 200 calories and a good amount of artery-clogging fat.

Buffalo Wild Wings Ultimate Cheese Sampler

2,310 calories, 157 g fat, 65 g saturated fat, 6,530 mg sodium, 140 g carbs, 13 g fiber, 19 g sugars, 84 g protein

Cheese-lovers may have a hard time passing up the opportunity to order this app, but if they value their vital organs, they should seriously consider it. With nearly three day's of fat and sodium, even if you split this tray of grilled cheese, mozzarella sticks, and cheese curds with three or four friends, it still wouldn't be a healthy pick! The only bit of good news here for your health? It's a limited-time-only menu item.

Bob Evans Cherry Brioche French Toast

720 calories, 25 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, 660 mg sodium, 113 g carbs, 3 g fiber, N/A sugar, 12 g protein

Made with more egg and butter than your typical loaf, this Brioche bread French toast was doomed before it was even dipped into the batter. Pair that with a dusting of powdered sugar, syrupy cherries, and a baked streusel crumble (which we suspect is basically just fat, mixed with more fat and some sugar) and you've got the makings of one of the worst new restaurant breakfasts in the nation. Not only is this meal packed with more carbs than seven-and-a-half slices of white bread, it has more calories than nine frozen Kashi blueberry waffles! And if Bob actually revealed his sugar counts, we're positive those would be off the charts, too! For 230 fewer calories and a fraction of the empty carbs, you can get a big bowl of fruit-topped oatmeal and a side of bacon. You know which meal is the smarter choice; order it!

Perkins' The Big Country Smasher

1,110 calories, 79 g fat, 26 g saturated fat, 2,540 mg sodium, 62 g carbs, 5 g fiber, 6 g sugar, 38 g protein

Made with eggs, ham, sausage, applewood smoked bacon, gravy, cheese, and tater tots, this "Smasher" will smash your dreams of ever achieving a lean beach body. It may be hard to believe, but somehow Perkins managed to fit 122 percent of the day's fat, 130 percent of the day's saturated fat, and more salt than what you'd find in 14 snack-sized bags of Doritos into one dish! This is one breakfast that's best left uneaten.

1,630 calories, 101 g fat, 33 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat, 3,140 mg sodium, 120 g carbs, 9 g fiber, 12 g sugar, 62 g protein

This egg- and hashbrown-topped breakfast burger fuses the flavors of America's two favorite meals: breakfast and dinner. The result is a burger that packs more salt than most people eat in an entire day. Like chocolate covered potato chips, some meal mashups are better left untried—and this just another one of them.

860 calories, 40 g fat, 13 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat, 810 mg sodium, 126 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 88 g sugar, 9 protein

Okay, so you probably assumed this cake was caloric, but thanks to all the fruit piled on top of this bad boy, you probably greatly underestimated its calorie count. And you're not alone; according to a Journal of Consumer Psychology study, people underestimate calorie counts of fresh fruit-topped sweets by a whopping 16 percent! It would be nice if simply adding some berries to your favorite ice cream undid all of the damage, but unfortunately, that's not the case. Order their Banana Cream Pie instead and save 470 calories and 52 grams of sugar. Or better yet, indulge in a homemade dessert instead. These 20 Easy Dessert Recipes are all easy on the waistline.

1,130 calories, 46.5 g fat, 40 g saturated fat, 4,050 mg sodium, 116 g carbs, 11 g fiber, 11 g sugars, 62 g protein

The way we see it, you have one of two choices: You can shove one giant burrito into your pie hole that will force you to blow through nearly two day's worth of salt and saturated fat. Or you can sit down to a well-portioned feast of flavors for a fraction of the calories, fat, and sodium. Many of the key flavors and meal components that might have attracted you to the prime rib burrito are in our Eat This! option below: beef, beans ,the tortilla, and the citrus-chile rice, to name but a few. When you can get the flavors you crave without undoing a month's worth of smart dieting, the right choice becomes crystal clear.

840 calories, 46 g fat, 7 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat, 1,190 mg sodium, 83 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 18 g sugar, 28 g protein

Pecans are healthy and so is wheat and chicken, which may make it hard to believe this innocent-sounding sandwich could have landed on this list. But alas, here it is. Thanks to a smattering of a trans-fatty sauce and a sugary bread, this sandwich is actually worse for you than the chain's loaded curly fries. And considering those are topped with a cheddar sauce, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, and ranch dressing that's saying a lot. If a poultry-based handheld is what you crave, order the turkey gyro (which comes with a tasty tzatziki sauce). It will shave 370 calories, 26 grams of fat, and all of the blood vessel-clogging trans fat from your order.

Hardee's Blueberry Biscuit

390 calories, 15 g fat, 4 g saturated fat, 790 mg sodium, 4 g fiber, 21 g sugar, 5 g protein

What do Hardee's cinnamon raisin biscuits, apple turnover, and chocolate chip cookies all have in common—aside from the fact that their menu mainstays, of course? They're all healthier options than the chain's new blueberry biscuit. (Yes, seriously!) Not only does this breakfast treat carry more sugar than 47 M&M candies, it also packs a third of the day's salt. How sneaky is that? Next time you find yourself at Hardee's craving something sweet to kick off your day, ask for the hot chocolate. Sure it's sugary, but since the sweet stuff is pared with healthy fats and protein from the milk, the blood sugar spike won't be as steep as it might be from one of Hardee's pastry offerings.

1,060 calories, 63 g fat, 27 mg saturated fat, 2 g trans fat, 2,090 mg sodium, 66 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 22 g sugar, 59 g protein

With 1,290 calories and 85 grams of fat, the very worst burger at Carl's Jr. is the 1/2 lb.Thickburger El Diablo—and it's been holding onto that title for years. But thanks to toppings like applewood-smoked bacon strips, bacon crumbles, and bacon jam, this new bad boy is giving the devilish burger a real run for its money. By simply holding the fancy toppings and globs of mayo you can indulge in a delicious burger at Carl's without undoing all of your weight loss progress. The single burger is the best bet of the lot.

Starbucks Teavana Shaken Berry Sangria Herbal Tea

24-ounces: 210 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 25 mg sodium, 53 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 48 g sugar, 0 g protein

Just what the world needs: another sugar-filled tea drink. And yes, we're being sarcastic. In its purest form, tea is filled with health benefits. Depending on that kind you sip, it can rev your metabolism, stave off stress and even stop fat cells from forming. (If you couldn't tell, we love tea which is why we came out with the The 7-Day Flat-Belly Tea Cleanse!) But this apple juice spiked concoction is an exception to the rule. If we're being honest, the drink is more of a grown up juice box spiked with tea, than a wholesome sip, and they should really be marketing it as such. Skip this health-food fraud and stay on track with your flat-belly goals with an unsweetened iced green tea instead.

Meat Lover's, large slice: 410 calories, 22 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, 990 mg sodium, 33 g carbs, 2 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 18 g protein

While a 410-calorie meal isn't going to throw you off track, no one ever eats just one slice of pizza. And when you stop and consider that many slices have just 200 calories or fewer, it seems silly to indulge in a single slice that does twice the damage. If you want something with bacon or meat consider ordering the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger medium thin crust pie. It will give you the flavor you crave with half of the calories and fat.

804 calories, 57 g fat, 17 g saturated fat, 1.35 g trans fat, 1,275 mg sodium, 41 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 6 g sugar, 34 g protein

If 800 calories for a burger doesn't seem like a lot, consider this: you could have a burger, an order of curly fries and a taco from Jack in the Box and still not hit the 800-calorie mark. And not only does this self-proclaimed decadent burger serve up nearly an entire day's worth of trans fat, it also packs half a day's salt in between its toasted artisan potato bun—which just as an FYI is code for nutrient-void carb bomb. Since all of the chain's burgers have trans fat, we suggest ordering a chicken sandwich instead. The sourdough grilled chicken club, serves up the same bacon as the Brewhouse burger for a fraction of the calories and fat. That's what we like to call a win!

780 calories, 38 g fat, 10 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat, 1,850 mg sodium, 87 g carbs, 9 g fiber, 8 g sugar, 23 g protein

We named the Triple Double Crunch Wrap's skinnier cousin, The Crunchwrap the #3 worst dish at Taco Bell so it should come as no surprise that this new, fattened-up variety is considered to be a "Not That!" The added hit of spice that accompanies this handheld meal comes from the addition of fresh jalapeños and spicy ranch dressing, which adds additional fat, to a dish that already carries 50 percent of the day's recommended intake. Opt for the chalupa instead, which is lower in sodium and calories than pretty much everything else on the menu.

In early July, Denny's announced the release of its new buttermilk pancakes, which they claim are 50 percent fluffier than their old flapjacks. To celebrate the launch of their new creation they rolled out some limited-time pancake offerings including strawberries and cream pancakes, sticky-bun pancakes and peanut-butter-cup pancakes, which just so happen to be the worst of the lot (sorry, peanut butter lovers). And when you stop and consider that they're topped with hot fudge and peanut butter sauce, instead of, you know, actual peanut butter, it's really no surprise. Pair that with some, eggs, hash browns, and a choice of bacon or sausage links, and you've got yourself a meal with nearly an entire day's calorie allotment. By ordering the chain's $2 Stack of Pancakes and a side of bacon, you'll get the sweet and salty combo you crave, while keeping 1,150 calories, 1, 108 milligrams of salt and a whopping 58 grams of sugar off of your plate! An even leaner choice? The Fit Slam. The 390 calorie order comes with scrambled egg whites with fresh spinach and grape tomatoes, plus two turkey bacon strips, an English muffin, and fresh fruit.

Despite the fact that this hybrid croissant-waffle is the size of a folded-over Eggo, it manages to serve up 660 calories, 47 grams of fat, and even a gram of trans fat—and that's before the meat and eggs are accounted for. And the most interesting part is that the egg and veggie-filled version of this new dish has more calories than its sweet-flavored sisters. The reason? The iHop chefs add pancake batter to the eggs to make them extra fluffy—and caloric. So yes, you're basically being served a pancake stuffed croissant without being told. Sneaky, right?

More meat, more problems. Made with two large beef patties and topped with shaved steak, melted Swiss cheese, fried onions, and mayo, this monster of a burger will leave your belly bloated and swollen. The only good news here is that it's a limited time item. Since all of the chain's burgers carry trans fat, we suggest sticking with their crispy chicken sandwich or an order of buffalo wings.
