So I was at Chili’s the other day. I know, I know… but we had to bowl for our fun league and that’s the only restaurant that’s near by – and if I have to eat there or at the bowling alley… well, I think Chili’s eeks out a win by a smidgen or so. (Although the bowling alley does have fried pickles, which sounds strangely good, but I have yet to have them.)
The first thing I notice is that it is almost impossible to get anything even remotely good for you on this menu. Oh, sure, they have their “Guiltless” section – but that only claims that the meal is 750 calories or less. 750 calories is “guiltless?” WTF is the rest of it, then? The thought scares me.
Second, a certain salad catches my eye: The Quesadilla Explosion. Now, again – I’m no marketing genius, but putting the words “quesadilla” and “explosion” in the same sentence seems like a bad idea. Also, since it’s obviously not “guiltless” – I pass.
So, I ended up getting the basic Old Timer burger but had them sub the burger for a black bean burger. Then, I get home and look it up and even that has 650 calories! WTF?
No wonder we are a nation of fat-asses.
