740 calories, 42 g fat (20 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fat), 1,360 mg sodium, 43 g carbs (3 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 48 g protein

The burger with the most calories at McDonald's is none other than the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese. It is interesting to note that the Golden Arches doesn't have a burger that clocks in at 1,000 calories, something that is sadly far too common at fast-food restaurants.

Quarter Pounder with Cheese Bacon

630 calories, 35 g fat (15 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,470 mg sodium, 43 g carbs (3 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 36 g protein

One thing to note about adding bacon to a burger—you can count on the amount of sodium you're getting to be higher compared to other options.

Big Mac

550 calories, 30 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 1,010 mg sodium, 45 g carbs (3 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 25 g protein

You might be surprised to uncover that the Big Mac isn't the Mickey D sandwich packing the most calories! Still, it's not really anything to brag about, as it's loaded up with three slices of bread…

5

Quarter Pounder with Cheese

520 calories, 27 g fat (13 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,090 mg sodium, 41 g carbs (3 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 31 g protein

450 calories, 24 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,120 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 25 g protein

400 calories, 20 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 1 g trans fat), 920 mg sodium, 32 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 22 g protein

We know, this looks quite like the Double Cheeseburger. But there is a key difference! The McDouble just has one slice of cheese instead of two, resulting in a lower calorie option.

2

Cheeseburger

300 calories, 13 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 720 mg sodium, 32 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 15 g protein

When that cheeseburger craving hits, be sure to just order the plain version.

1,520 calories, 106 g fat (45 g saturated fat, 4 g trans fat), 1,910 mg sodium, 53 g carbs (3 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 89 g protein

This over-the-top burger is a newer addition to Wendy's menu, but three patties smothered in cheese, bacon, and crispy fried onion in between a pretzel bun is just trouble. This one burger by itself has nearly an entire day's worth of calories.

14

Big Bacon Triple

1,220 calories, 86 g fat (36 g saturated fat, 4.5 g trans fat), 1,770 mg sodium, 38 g carbs (2 g fiber, 9 g sugar), 75 g protein

Sensing a theme here with the triple burgers? Three times the amount of meat results in a burger that is not only high calories, but it's also high in fat, harmful trans fats, and sodium.

13

Pretzel Bacon Pub Double

1,180 calories, 79 g fat (32 g saturated fat, 3.6 g trans fat), 1,630 mg sodium, 53 g carbs (3 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 64 g protein

Sorry, but going with the double version of the Pretzel Bacon Pub burger isn't really much better.

12

Dave's Triple

1,160 calories, 81 g fat (34 g saturated fat, 4.5 g trans fat), 1,570 mg sodium, 38 g carbs (2 g fiber, 8 g sugar), 70 g protein

Another triple burger! Wendy's really is trying to make these happen, aren't they? (And if you're looking for more helpful tips, your ultimate restaurant and supermarket survival guide is here.)

Baconator

960 calories, 66 g fat (26 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 1,540 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 57 g protein

This burger is loaded up with six pieces of bacon. Sorry, but sometimes there is such a thing as too much bacon…

Big Bacon Classic

Courtesy of Wendy's
910 calories, 66 g fat (26 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 1,540 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 57 g protein

Here, a quarter-pound of beef, is topped with Applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, ketchup, mayo, and onion on a toasted bun. Seems like a typical burger, but it is large and at more than 900 calories, there are much better options you can get instead.

Dave's Double

Wendys daves double

860 calories, 57 g fat (23 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 1,200 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (2 g fiber, 8 g sugar), 49 g protein

840 calories, 52 g fat (20 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,310 mg sodium, 53 g carbs (3 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 40 g protein

When it comes to the pretzel bacon pub burgers, you should just simply stay away from them.

630 calories, 40 g fat (16 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,210 mg sodium, 36 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 32 g protein

The smaller version of the Baconator is still loaded up with too much bacon!

Dave's Single

590 calories, 37 g fat (14 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 1,030 mg sodium, 37 g carbs (2 g fiber, 8 g sugar), 29 g protein

This is the burger founder Dave Thomas always wanted to serve up, and it falls in the middle of the pack as not the worst or best option, calorie-wise.

5

Bacon Double Stack

290 calories, 14 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 610 mg sodium, 26 g carbs (1 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 15 g protein

The basic cheeseburger is one of the least harmful Wendy's menu items.

1,876 calories, 136 g fat (51 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,080 mg sodium, 58 g carbs (4 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 110 g protein

The fact that this sandwich from Burger King has nearly an entire day's worth of calories is scary, but it's packing more than 3,000 milligrams of sodium, too. The American Heart Association recommends the average person consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day. You're blowing way beyond that here!

15

Triple Whopper with Cheese

1,220 calories, 82 g fat (32 g saturated fat, 4.5 g trans fat), 1,470 mg sodium, 50 g carbs (2 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 71 g protein

Bacon King Sandwich

1,150 calories, 79 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 2,150 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (2 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 61 g protein

13

Double Stacker King

1,050 calories, 68 g fat (28 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 1,870 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (1 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 61 g protein

1,006 calories, 63 g fat (27 g saturated fat), 1,836 mg sodium, 56 g carbs (2 g fiber, 14 g sugar), 57 g protein

11

Double Whopper Sandwich

Courtesy of Burger King
900 calories, 58 g fat (20 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 1,050 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (2 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 48 g protein

We've finally gotten below 1,000 calories, but the Double Whopper packing 900 calories isn't really much better.

10

Double Quarter Pounder King

Courtesy of Burger King
900 calories, 54 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 1,740 mg sodium, 50 g carbs (2 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 56 g protein

And the fact that the Double Quarter Pounder King has the same amount of calories? Another skip!

Whopper Sandwich

660 calories, 40 g fat (12 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 980 mg sodium, 49 g carbs (2 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 28 g protein

The Whopper is Burger King's most iconic menu item, but it does have 600 calories, so it's not something you want to eat often.

8

Impossible Whopper Sandwich

630 calories, 34 g fat (11 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,080 mg sodium, 58 g carbs (4 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 25 g protein

420 calories, 24 g fat (10 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 740 mg sodium, 27 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 25 g protein

390 calories, 21 g fat (9 g saturated fat, 1.5 g trans fat), 590 mg sodium, 27 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 23 g protein

Two patties are loaded up with two slices of cheese, two onion rings, all smothered in a tangy BBQ sauce. It's no wonder this burger is more than 1,000 calories!

250 calories, 9 g fat (3.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 570 mg sodium, 32 g carbs (1 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 11 g protein

White Castle sliders are very small compared to other fast-food burgers, so the double version seems harmless. Still, it's the highest calorie option and it has as much sodium as you get from 60 Lay's Classic Potato Chips.

4

The Impossible Slider with Smoked Cheddar Cheese

230 calories, 13 g fat (6 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 700 mg sodium, 73 g carbs (1 g fiber, 2 g sugar), 10 g protein

Carl's Jr

Triple Fiery Famous Star

Courtesy of Carl's Jr.
1,150 calories

This burger made its way to menus in January 2021 and so far, Carl's Jr. has only shared how many calories it's packing. That's enough to know, as it's coming in at more than 1,000. Skip!

5

The Guacamole Bacon Angus Thickburger

Carls jr half pound guacamole thickburger
Courtesy of Carl's Jr.
960 calories, 64 g fat (18 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,820 mg sodium, 50 g carbs (3 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 38 g protein

Guacamole is a great addition to a burger instead of going for a sauce that is (most likely) loaded up with hidden sugars or sodium. But at Carl's Jr., the Guacamole Bacon Angus Thickburger is another example of taking a good thing too far that it can't even save this burger.

4

The Big Carl

Courtesy of Carl's Jr.
920 calories, 58 g fat (23 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,380 mg sodium, 56 g carbs (3 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 47 g protein

830 calories, 54 g fat (16 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,450 mg sodium, 53 g carbs (4 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 35 g protein

Courtesy of Carl's Jr.
770 calories, 44 g fat (13 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 1,600 mg sodium, 61 g carbs (2 g fiber, 12 g sugar), 33 g protein

For those who are plant-based or just want to try something different, the Beyond Famous Star with Cheese is on the lower end of the calorie-count at Carl's Jr. But it's still actually quite high and is packing in sodium so just make this a once-in-a-while treat.

1

Big Hamburger

Courtesy of Carl's Jr.
480 calories, 18 g fat (8 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 870 mg sodium, 56 g carbs (3 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 25 g protein

It's safe to say most of the Carl's Jr. burgers are high-calorie compared to other options you could order from different fast-food chains. The Big Hamburger is one of the least offensive options coming in at 480 calories.

890 calories, 59 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,346 mg sodium, 48 g carbs (3 g fiber, 11 g sugar), 48 g protein

Anything with "buttery" in the name sounds mouth-watering, but this bacon and swiss cheese topped burger is one to skip.

Courtesy of Jack in the Box
860 calories, 58 g fat (24 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,050 mg sodium, 51 g carbs (4 g fiber, 13 g sugar), 37 g protein

850 calories, 59 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 2.5 g trans fat), 1,480 mg sodium, 24 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 47 g protein

This four-patty burger is just excessive. There's no need for this much meat in one sitting!

700 calories, 47 g fat (19 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,250 mg sodium, 34 g carbs (2 g fiber, 7 g sugar), 37 g protein

While we thought this burger made up of three patties would actually have more calories, coming in at 700 is still far too much.

6

Sourdough Jack
