Okay, we go into most restaurants knowing they aren’t intended to be a mecca of nutrition — great place to splurge and pig out. But usually each restaurant has at least one option that saves calories.

Two of Taco Bell’s Fresco Soft Tacos with shredded chicken only set you back 280 calories, Wendy’s Ultimate Chicken Grill sandwich is 370 calories — and Arby’s offers a 250 calorie Chopped Farmhouse Salad.

That’s the good news.

HealthGrove took a look at the most caloric burger at 20 popular chain restaurants.

Burgers are ranked by number of calories for a serving size of one burger; if there was a tie, the burger with more fat grams ranked higher.
