If you go to Denny’s for breakfast, you might with high expectations and leave quite underwhelmed. While we give Denny’s due respect for moving toward serving cage-free eggs by 2026 in all of their locations, they’re among one of the many fast-food chains that still serve meat that’s loaded with antibiotics.
In fact, they have made no public policies regarding antibiotic use in their supply chain.
Champs Chicken can be found in gas stations and convenience stores spread across the country. The reality of Champs Chicken calling a dingy gas station home doesn't automatically make it a bad eatery; what makes Champs Chicken bad is the fact that they have terrible food.
Champs somehow manage to undercook the skin on their chickens while overdoing the meat. The result is mealy and fatty skin encased around bland slivers of chicken. Rather go a few extra miles and spend a little bit more cash to find an alternative worth trying.
Ruby's is breaking our hearts—quite literally. They're on this list because it's so difficult for us to find any information on their dishes' nutritional value.
We'd like to think that Ruby would want her customers to be healthy enough to eat at her restaurants for the future. But if Ruby doesn't want to disclose vital information just because it isn't the picture of health, then they're doomed.
Uno Chicago Grill
It shouldn't come as a revelation that Uno Chicago Grill, home of the legendary deep-dish pizza, is also home to many more dishes that pack over 1,000 calories. Let's take their Cobb salad as an example; it totals 900 calories with more than an entire day's fat and nearly an entire day's worth of salt!
And their Mega Size Deep Dish Sundae contains a belt-busting 2,700 calories! That's the calorie match to 14 Krispy Kreme donuts! Finding something to order at Uno that won't derail your weight loss efforts is like looking for a lost ting at the beach; it's basically impossible.
The Foodservice industry is changing, and it seems that pancakes can't keep up. It wasn't too long ago that IHOP dominated the breakfast scene. There's one uniting theme among a lot of popular diets, from paleo to Whole 30 to keto, and that's that carbs are the enemy.
That's not great for a restaurant mostly known for pancakes and waffles. And given the national-debt-level calorie counts on much of its menu, it's easy to see why IHOP is struggling.
