Applebee’s

Photo of chicken and brocolli dishApplebee’s menu provides something for everyone. With ribs, seafood, burgers, salads, and Italian and Mexican specialties to pick from, you have choices galore.

Likewise, when it comes to calories and fat, Applebee’s swings from one extreme to the other. The chain features several healthy meals with less than 400 calories and 10 g fat and more than two dozen meals with more than 1,000 calories. Some items include more than 100 g fat per serving.

Menu items on the lighter side include the Weight Watchers Cajun Lime Tilapia with 310 calories and 6 g fat, the Weight Watchers Steak & Portobellos with 330 calories and 10 g fat, the Weight Watchers Paradise Chicken Salad with 340 calories and 4.5 g fat, the Weight Watchers Garlic Herb Chicken with 370 calories and 6 g fat, the Weight Watchers Italian Chicken & Portobello Sandwich with 320 calories and 4.5 g fat, and the Asian Crunch Salad with 490 calories and 9 g fat.

Diet-busting dishes include the New England Fish & Chips with 1,910 calories and 137 g fat, the Riblet and Chicken Tenders Platter with 1,700 to 1,770 calories and 100 g fat, Applebee’s Riblets Platter with 1,570 to 1,700 calories and 87 to 88 g fat, the Provolone-Stuffed Meatballs with Fettuccine with 1,580 calories and 98 g fat, the Quesadilla Burger with 1,420 calories and 104 g fat, and the Florentine Ravioli with Chicken with 1,320 calories and 88 g fat.

If you order the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae for dessert, better split it with a table of friends—it packs 1,660 calories.
