Applebee's Quesadilla Burger

The Applebee's Quesadilla Burger may look innocent enough. After all there is no great big bun. But its look makes up for it with the cheese and other toppings.  This bad boy has 1,420 calories, 104 g of fat, a whopping 4,000 mg of sodium --or about the equivalent of 11 large orders of McDonald’s french fries.

Uno Chicago Grill's Bring Home the Bacon Burger

This burger, which is topped with spicy Buffalo Cheddar and bacon, comes with half a day’s worth of calories (1,040), a whole day’s worth of sodium (2,200 g), and the saturated fat equivalent of 12 White Castle Burgers (30 g).  Nuf said.

Red Robin's Whiskey River BBQ Burger

This giant-sized burger is only half as scary as what's inside. The Whiskey River BBQ Burger has a decadent mix of both BBQ sauce and mayo.  But what really tips this over are the fried onion rings inside the burger. It's no wonder this burger is 1,114 calories.

The Cheesecake Factory Farmhouse Cheeseburger

The Cheesecake Factory's Farmhouse Cheeseburger includes a thick slab of bacon and a fried egg on top. This burger can really pack on the pounds at 1,530 calories, 36 grams of saturated fat and 3,210 mg of sodium. That's why it was a Center for Science in the Public Interest  2011 Xtreme Eating Awards 2011 pick.

IHOP’s Monster Bacon ’N Beef Cheeseburger

Why bother slapping bacon slabs on top of your burger, when you can grind them right into the meat?  This little trick amounts to 1,250 in calories, 42 grams of saturated and 1,590 mg of sodium, and that’s before the sides. This is another Center for Science in the Public Interest 2011 Xtreme Eating Awards pick.

Ruby Tuesday's Avocado Turkey Burger

It sounds healthy, but this burger is anything but.  Topped Swiss cheese, applewood smoked bacon, at 886 calories it may not have as many calories as other burger busters. But with 54 grams of fat, and 2,441 milligrams of sodium it's not exactly a healthy alternative.

Denny’s Double Cheeseburger

At 1,400 calories, this Denny's burger is a double whammy.  It has double patties, double cheese, double a day's saturated fat at 41 g. It also has 2,680 mg of sodium.
