“And we mean loaded!” says TGI Fridays about its Loaded Cheese Fry Burger.

“American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onions, pickles, piled high with loaded bacon-cheese fries & poblano queso. Skewered with our famous loaded potato skin.”

That’s all? Too bad Fridays couldn’t squeeze in a few wings, a slice of pizza, or a donut.

Still, the Loaded Cheese Fry Burger isn’t skimpy. Alone, it sports 1,450 calories.

With fries for your side—why stop with the fries that are on the burger?—it hits 1,680 calories plus two days’ worth of saturated fat (40 grams) and more than a 1½-day supply of sodium (3,890 milligrams). That’s essentially three McDonald’s Big Macs.

If you get bored with the Cheese Fry Burger, you can always try the 1,050-calorie Philly Cheesesteak Burger (“Loaded & piled high with layers of roast beef, onions, red & green bell peppers, melted cheese and topped with our Philly Cheesesteak Egg Roll”).

What’s a burger without more beef on top?

“Stacked tall with flavor, these burgers go over the top,” says the chain. And if you go over the top, calorie-wise, meat-wise, white-bread-wise, salt-wise, etc.?

Not Fridays’ problem.
