Must-Read: Best and Worst Restaurants in America
When it comes to food, America is both the greatest and worst place in the world. If you’re looking to eat healthy or go through life with some kind of vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, there are plenty of options out there for you to choose from. But at the same time, nowhere is it easier to fall into the pattern of eating nothing but shit. It’s just so simple to go out there, get in your car, pull into the drive thru, and order things that have about 2,000 calories per serving. And cheap, too! So, the state of food in America is both a blessing and a curse.
The big issue, however, is simple education. If you know how bad a certain food for you is, or the healthier options available just a few Value Meals over, then that’s half the battle of being a more fit individual. Which is why today we’re highlighting this ranking over at Men’s Healthabout the 10 best and worst restaurants in America. As the old NBC promos used to say, “The More You Know.”
We’ll save the good ones for your click-over, but as far as the number one option to avoid:
[blockquote] THE WORST RESTAURANT IN AMERICA: CHEESECAKE FACTORY
With more calories than a county fair concession stand and more sodium than a salt flat, the menu at the Cheesecake Factory is in desperate need of an overhaul. The chain did unveil its new SkinnyLicious Menu this year, but unfortunately it’s still secretive about the items on its regular menu. Thanks to transparency laws in places like New York and California, however, we were able to peak behind the fatty curtain. What we saw: Dozens of items with about 2,000 calories per dish. Stick to the SkinnyLicious menu or find a new place to eat.[blockquote]
If you’ve ever walked past a Cheesecake Factory, and seen what kinds of people are inside of it, gorging their faces with these high-calorie offerings, no doubt you can agree with this ranking. Head over to the link above to check out the other restaurants to both avoid, and which ones to go to.
