Carl's Jr. may have racy ads, but some of its offerings are downright respectable, starting with its line of 555-calorie-or-less turkey burgers and Chicken Stars, the chain's version of nuggets that clock in at just over 95 calories apiece.

Although they now offer a few decent sandwiches, a Mini Blizzard, and reasonable-size 855-calorie sundaes, DQ still serves up a wide array of bad burgers, bulging chicken baskets, and blindingly sweet concoctions leave plenty of room for error. Here's a look at one hypothetical meal: a Mushroom Swiss Burger with regular onion rings and a small Snickers Blizzard—a hefty half a day's calories.
Surprisingly enough, KFC has more than a few things going for it. The menu's crispy bird bits are offset by skinless chicken pieces, low-calorie sandwich options, and a host of sides that come from beyond the fryer.
