TB12 Chunky Guac is pretty traditional but provides healthy fats, vitamins B and C, and potassium for energy thanks to the avocado, onion, and garlic. Other playmakers include lemon or lime juice and zest, Himalayan salt, and basil. Scooping it with tortilla chips seems like an easy touchdown, but Brady recommends eating it with veggie sticks or sweet potato toast, according to People. This gives you more fiber, vitamins, and minerals, so you'll have the energy for the second half of the game.
Here's the full recipe: ¼ cup diced white onion, rinsed and strained, 1 garlic clove, finely grated or minced, ¼ teaspoon ground coriander, ½ green jalapeño, seeded and finely diced (optional), 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice, plus 1 tsp. zest, 1/2 tsp.

However, at what point is a burger too much? In other words, how far will restaurants go to maximize the toppings on an already calorie-packed meal? We set out to discover which popular restaurant chains are whipping up some of the most caloric, unhealthiest burgers in the country. We can guarantee you'll be shocked to see just how many calories, and how much fat and sodium lie in some of your favorite restaurant burgers.Methodology: In order to identify the unhealthiest burgers in America, we compiled a list of the most caloric burgers from some of the most popular sit-down restaurants nationwide.

To break ties, we chose the burger with a greater amount of saturated fat and deemed that one less healthy. We also only considered the top three most unhealthy burgers at each restaurant to ensure we represented a diverse range of restaurants on this list.

may be known primarily for its breakfast food items, but have you ever stopped in for lunch or dinner? Their Mega Monster Cheeseburger is chock-full of calories and artery-clogging saturated fat. Can you believe that an over 1,000-calorie burger is the least bad of all? Wait until you see what's to come. If you do decide to pop into IHOP and are craving a cheeseburger, opt for The Classic Steakburger
for anywhere between 520 and 670 calories and nearly half of the saturated fat.

Red Robin's Southern Charm Burger may be extremely delicious, but beware, because it comes with a price tag—nutritionally-speaking anyways. Aside from being high in calories, fat, and sodium—which are all things you expect from a burger on this list—it also packs a whopping 40 grams of sugar, which contains 6 grams more sugar than a 2/3 cup serving of Ben & Jerry's Karamel Sutra Core

15. Perkins BBQ Tangler Burger
Nutrition: 1,140 calories, 70 g fat (27 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,690 mg sodium, 75 g carbs (2 g fiber, 34 g sugar), 51 g protein
This burger may be best described as a beast with onion tanglers and bacon sandwiched in between a generous 6-ounce Angus beef patty and buttery brioche bun. It packs a lot of fat too, thanks to the bacon, beef, and sharp cheddar cheese between its buttery buns.
14. Perkins' Patty Melt Pile On Sandwich
Nutrition: 1,170 calories, 78 g fat (32 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 1,670 mg sodium, 63 g carbs (4 g fiber, 4 g sugar), 54 g protein

Nutrition: 1,210 calories, 77 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 2,410 mg sodium, 59 g carbs (3 g fiber, 20 g sugar), 72 g protein
This burger isn't dubbed a monster for no reason. Without the fries, this burger costs you 1,210 calories on its own—that's more than half of your daily calories consumed in just one sitting. Toss in a side of steak fries, and you're looking at adding on an additional 360 calories to this already high-calorie meal.
12. Chili's Southern Smokehouse Beef Burger
Nutrition: 1,260 calories, 83 g fat (31 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 2360 mg sodium, 68 g carbs (4 g fiber, 16 g sugar), 92 g protein
This burger is stacked in smokehouse meats—just look at the size of it! It towers so high from all of the bacon that it needs to be held together by a large steak knife. Just how much is 1,260 calories? For context, you would have to eat almost 120 Lay's Potato Chips
10. Johnny Rockets' Route 66 Double Turkey Burger w/ gluten-free bun
Nutrition: 1,380 calories, 100 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 2,560 mg sodium, 50 g carbs (10 g fiber, 10 g sugar), 70 g protein
The picture only shows one layer of meat, but imagine this burger with two ground turkey patties! This sandwich clocks in at a whopping 100 grams of total fat, nearly a third of which is devoted solely to saturated fat. The gluten-free
bun and the turkey patties actually hike up the calories by a considerable amount. For a healthier option, opt for the Rocket Single Burger
for just 470 calories and 30 grams of total fat.
9. The Cheesecake Factory's Americana Cheeseburger
Nutrition: 1,400 calories, 93 g fat (37 g saturated fat, 3 g trans fat), 3,370 mg sodium, 79 g carbs (4 g fiber, 25 g sugar), 60 g protein

Nutrition: 1,470 calories, 102 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 2,700 mg sodium, 72 g carbs (4 g fiber, 22 g sugar), 65 g protein
This burger from The Cheesecake Factory may not look like it's huge, but trust us when we say it's loaded in calories, fat, and sodium. Or, better yet, just refer to the numbers above. For an equivalent amount of total fat, you could eat nearly eight Dove Milk Chocolate Bars
7. Johnny Rockets' Smoke House Double Burger w/ turkey burger on gluten-free bun
Nutrition: 1,490 calories, 100 g fat (30 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,690 mg sodium, 70 g carbs (10 g fiber, 20 g sugar), 80 g protein
This burger houses a whopping 100 grams of fat. For perspective, one stick of butter
contains about 92 grams of fat—which means you'd save 8 grams of fat by eating that rather than this meal.
6. Friendly's Double Honey BBQ Burger
Nutrition: 1,513 calories, 94 g fat (40 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 3,233 mg sodium, 81 g carbs (3.2 g fiber, 31 g sugar), 86 g protein
Friendly's Double Honey BBQ Burger packs 40 grams of saturated fat, which is double the recommended daily allowance of about 20 grams. Ideally, you should limit your saturated fat intake to just 13 grams
a day to prevent heart disease and stroke
, according to the American Heart Association.
4. The Cheesecake Factory Bacon-Bacon Cheeseburger
Nutrition: 1,590 calories, 108 g fat (45 g saturated fat, 3.5 g trans fat), 3,450 mg sodium, 76 g carbs (3 g fiber, 28 g sugar), 78 g protein
The fourth unhealthiest burger you could order is none other than the Bacon-Bacon Cheeseburger at The Cheesecake Factory. You could eat an equivalent amount of sodium that's in this burger by consuming about 1 1/2 tablespoons
of finely ground salt straight from the spoon.
3. Applebee's Brunch Burger
Nutrition: 1,610 calories, 100 g fat (33 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,060 mg sodium, 114 g carbs (8 g fiber, 14 g sugar), 66 g protein
OK, we all love a good brunch
, but isn't a burger for a meal enough food on its own? Evidently, that's not the case at Applebee's, because this burger
is topped with the breakfast essentials: two strips of bacon, crispy hash browns, and an egg over easy. It's no wonder this burger is over 1,600 calories! For context, this burger has as many calories as three Big Macs at McDonald's
The easy way to make healthier comfort foods
2. Applebee's Whisky Bacon Burger
Nutrition: 1,650 calories, 102 g fat (34 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 2,790 mg sodium, 122 g carbs (8 g fiber, 19 g sugar), 63 g protein
If you learn anything from this article it should be this: any burger that's topped with bacon is going to cost you—calories, fat, and sodium, that is. You could eat about two and a half plates of the Double Crunch Bone-In Wings
appetizer for an equivalent amount of calories.
1. Applebee's Quesadilla Burger
Nutrition: 1,670 calories, 110 g fat (42 g saturated fat, 2 g trans fat), 3,580 mg sodium, 100 g carbs (8 g fiber, 6 g sugar), 71 g protein
Imagine if a cheesy quesadilla met a jumbo burger…this would be the result. Why have a standard bun when you could have soft flour tortillas enclosing gooey cheese and bits of red bell pepper and onion as the base? This burger packs 110 grams of fat primarily from the mass amount of animal product and animal bi-product that it contains. If you're wondering just how much grams of fat that is, imagine eating about 12 tablespoons
, or more than 2/3 of a cup, of peanut butter in one sitting. This burger from Applebee's just falls short of 1,700 calories, making it the unhealthiest burger you can purchase from any popular restaurant chain
