    The Blossom at #2 gives you value - about 2500 calories. They missed the BK Angry Whopper. and the Quadstacker. I find it hard to believe that the 5 piece McD chicken selects with ranch at 20 is worse. And no KFC?

    The rest were okay, but that, right there are "fighting words", sir!

    Uno's Chicago Style is health food of the highest order.

    What Jim Rome calls "the heart attack" burger? Had to be the single funniest thing I've ever heard on his show (and funny on his show is few and far between)...

    "...2 1/3 pound burgers, 2 slices of cheese, 4 strips of bacon, a dollop of mayonnaise on a sesame seed bun. Can we put any more condiments on this burger? Oh, yeah, I've got an idea - let's butter the bun...."

    I have had quite a few of 14.Quizno's Classic Italian, but I get them "dry" (no dressing), so maybe that helps a little bit. I love pepperoni...

    I ordered #1 with someone one time... we didn't order dinner afterward we were so full. But man was that good. I am now going to avoid Chilis and no longer order my favorite sandwich at Quiznos. Stupid list!

    The wife and I go to Outback about 2 times a month... and get a half order of the cheese fries each time. I don't see this list changing anything except making me feel a little more guilty about 2 times a month.

    Outback has nothing on Texas Roadhouse. There ribeyes are great! They make outback look average.

    For those of you who remember Ruttles, I'm sure the Rama-Lama-Ding-Dong would have made this list. What was it, something like 10 scoops of ice cream, 2 brownies, a couple bananas and several other toppings. I think it was listed at just over 2000 calories or something.

    Ah, Ruttles! My three roomies and I were the first table ever seated at "Ruttles". We met (one of the) owner/founder in the parking lot, when they were building it, and he talked to us for about an hour about his soon-to-be restaurant, and invited us to come eat there, on him, the first day they opened.

    I loved building my own burger at the "burger bar". I especially liked the real malted milks.

    But all good things end, especially college-town restaurants.
