The Six Worst Fast-Food Burgers
|The McDonald's Angus Burger -- the "best" of the "worst."|
Yes, there are wonderful places to enjoy a quality burger in Miami, but chances are at some point in your life you'll be either too drunk, stoned, broke, or busy to stop at a nice restaurant and sit down for a good burger experience.
And it's exactly when we're too drunk or broke or busy that we don't really notice what we shovel into our bodies.
So here are some of your most heinous choices. Next time you're in your car and hungry, consider yourself forewarned.
In an effort to seem classy or to provide a better quality of meat, McDonald's featured the Angus line of burgers. The only thing it succeeded in doing was increasing the calorie and sodium intake of its customers. As bad as this sandwich is, it's actually the "healthiest" of the list, at 790 calories, 39g fat, 17g saturated fat, and 2,070mg sodium.
A clean storefront, long lines, and a wine list can certainly lull you into a false sense of security when choosing a meal. True, the shack offers 100 percent Black Angus burgers, free of hormones, but what they lack in antibiotics and drugs, they make up for in calories and fat content. The Shack Stack, a beef and portobello mushroom combo, contains 850 calories, 55g fat, 22g saturated fat, and 1,300mg sodium.
Checkers' Triple Buford is probably named for the first guy who had a triple bypass after eating this meat creature. With three beef patties, three slices of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and ketchup, it packs 910 calories, 61g fat, 29g saturated fat, and 1,870mg sodium.
