Restaurants aren't typically known for skimping on portion sizes, but one list of dishes released Monday tips the caloric scales even more than usual.
The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest is out with its annual list of recipients for the "Xtreme Eating Awards," with dishes that more than top some people's recommended calories for the day.
The list includes Uno Pizzeria & Grill's Whole Hog Burger, which clocks in at 2,850 calories and 408 percent of the recommended sodium intake for the day.
Also packing a caloric punch is the Fried Chicken & Waffles Benedict from The Cheesecake Factory, a restaurant the nonprofit notes has placed on the rankings for a decade. The dish packs 2,580 calories and 86 grams of saturated fat, according to the list.
Below are some other dishes that make the list. Some of the offerings are meant to share, so depending on how many friends are joining in, they might be more or less indulgent.
In a statement, Jersey Mike's Subs Vice President Franchise Relations Josie Capozzi said, "As noted on our website and in other materials, our Giant subs are designed to feed three to four people. They are perfect to share with friends and family or save part for a later meal."
In an emailed comment, The Cheesecake Factory's Senior Director of Public Relations Alethea Rowe stressed the chain's many choices, including those on its SkinnyLicious menu.
"Many of our guests come in and want to celebrate and not be concerned with calories. Others want to share their dish — and we love it when guests share — that's a great sign that our portions are generous — and a large percentage of our guests take home leftovers for lunch the next day," she said.
CNBC's requests for comment from the seven other restaurants on the list were not immediately returned.
Beginning next year, consumers will see nutritional information fully rolled out on chain restaurant menus. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will start enforcing the rule, which requires chains with 20 or more locations to post calorie data and other nutritional info for standard menu items, in early May.
