Applebee’s 1,210 calories

Chilli’s 1,010 calories

Denny’s 980 calories

Ruby Tuesday’s 860 calories, and

Dairy Queen 1,030 calories

Yahoo’s Associated Content lists many national chains that are now serving veggie burgers on their menus. As the number of vegetarians increase and some meat eaters look for non meat alternatives sometimes, restaurants respond. These are not always a healthy choice (fried, high in calories, etc) but they are non meat choices. They list:
a. Burger King serving Morningstar veggie burgers
b. Johnny Rockets (the burger place)
c. Ruby Tuesday’s
d. Chili’s
e. Denny’s (serving a Boca Burger)
f. Red Robin
