World's Unhealthiest Restaurant

What can you say?

For a long time chain restaurant, Claim Jumper, would not release its nutritional information. Now we know why.

The ribs: 2-1/2 days worth of calories. Chicken with pasta: nearly 2 days worth of calories.

I didn't say two meals worth of calories; I said, two full days worth of calories.

The only time you should go to Claim Jumper is the day before you run the Boston Marathon.

I'm speechless. The hamburger is actually called: The Widow Maker at 1594 calories. They must have removed a pickle to get it under 1,600 calories.

And my last word is: how can you make a salad with 1,800 calories? Check out the Cobb salad. It doesn't even look appetizing.

From Eater National: "It's a given that restaurant meals are high in calories, but Claim Jumper — the national Gold Rush-themed restaurant chain with 46 locations in eight states in the western U.S. — may very well be be the biggest transgressor when it comes to calorie overload. After much demand, the chain has finally released the nutritional information for the notoriously large, gravy-laden dishes it serves. Apparently, the reason anyone goes there is for the 'value' and the ridiculous portions: doggy bags are expected. But the raw numbers are completely mind-boggling. Here's a look at the nutritional info of some of their signature dishes:

· Beef Back Ribs: 4,301 calories, 156 grams of saturated fat, and 7,623 mg of sodium.
· Black Tie Chicken Pasta: 3,773 calories, 134 grams of fat, and 4,638 mg of sodium.
· Citrus Chicken Salad (Charbroiled): 2,520 calories, 33 grams of saturated fat, and 1,776 mg of sodium.
