2. Worst Fast-Food Burger
Sonic Ring Leader Loaded Burger Double Patty
120 g fat (44 g saturated, 4 g trans)
1,450 mg sodium
The recent unveiling of this menacing half-pound burger marks a new low for a chain that already suffers from an iffy reputation. The bacon strips and onion rings will receive much of the criticism, but it's the less flashy components that hold the hidden danger. In fact, the two slices of cheddar cheese and the double slather of mayo account for a third of the fat. (Then there's the "bun oil" Sonic squeezes on.) If you need a burger fix, there are less perilous ways to get it.

1. Worst Burger in America
Chiliís JalapeŮo Smokehouse Bacon Burger
126 g fat (43 g saturated)
5,290 mg sodium
This tricked-out number is the worst of the worst of Chili's' burger behemoths. It comes saddled with tortilla strips, bacon, cheddar, mayo, and jalapeno-ranch dressing, the combined impact of which is more than 2 days' worth of saturated fat and as much sodium as you'd find in 6 pounds of McDonald's French fries. No wonder it made our list of the 8 Scariest Restaurant Meals in America!
