The annual list of the most calorie-filled items you can order at popular chain restaurants is here, and all of the winners look delicious.

Every year, the Center for Science in the Public Interest does their Xtreme Eating awards, where they compile a list of the most calorie-filled items that you can order at popular chain restaurants. Why do they do this? According to Consumerist:

"These awards are given out annually by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) in the hope of reminding diners (and lawmakers and regulators) that your favorite local lunch, dinner, or dessert spot might be serving you up some real calorie-bombs without you realizing."

This year's list consists of menu items from The Cheesecake Factory, Uno Pizzeria, and Dave & Buster's, but also places that we have here in Eastern Iowa. Here are some of the meals that made the list:
