Subway Crab Meat

"It was made by taking imitation crab meat and mixing it in with a giant tub of mayo. When making the sandwich the thing would come out slathered in mayo. Might as well just have ordered a mayonnaise sandwich,

McDonald's McRib

"The way it looks before we put the sauce on it is absolutely revolting. It doesn't look like meat at all, it looks like a scab

Oreo Madness (TGIFriday's)

"Costs something like $6.50, for literally just one relatively small Klondike Oreo ice cream sandwich, taken out of its individual packaging, and slapped on a plate with some powdered sugar and chocolate sauce,

Fish Sandwich (Burger King)

"You had four vats of oil that you cooked fries in. After about two days, the oil got too dark for fries. So we switched it over to the ones for chicken. Since it was darker, it was ok. Then that goes on for a week. After a week of massive frying. The oil is black as motor oil. At that point, it's switched to the Fish Filet vat. That's the only thing you cook in that vat,

McDonald's Filet O'Fish 

"These are a scam for how much you pay. You get the same bun as a cheeseburger, a tiny amount of dirt cheap sauce, a deep-fried fish square and you don't even get a full slice of cheese

Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta

"It's seriously just cream, butter, parmesan, and fried shrimp. They toss in mushrooms and spinach in an attempt to disguise it as something other than a heart attack in a bowl. It doesn't work for m

McDonald's Big Macs

"Same amount of meat as a double cheeseburger, one less slice of cheese than a double cheeseburger. And three times as expensive as a double cheeseburger. Just ask for a double cheeseburger made like a Mac,

Arby's Roast Beef

"I can't eat the roast beef after working at Arby's. If you touch it while it's raw you'll never get it off your fingers," writes

Papa John's garlic sauce

"It's a tub of trans fat,

Subway's steak

"Having to prep it completely ruined it for me. It's essentially a frozen meat log that you have to break apart with your bare hands,"

Wendy's flatbreads

"The Wendy's flatbread chicken sandwiches are the same price as their normal menu chicken sandwiches, but you literally only get half the chicken. The flatbread is not even that good

Wendy's chili

"The meat comes from hamburger patties that sat on the grill too long to serve to customers. They take them and put them in a bin and then throw them in the fridge," writes Cozmo23. "When the chili is made they take it out, boil it, chop it up, and dump them in the chili. It's all safe, but a lot of people seemed upset when I told them about it."

Burger King's veggie burger

"The Veggie burger at Burger King is delicious, but they are often cooked on the same section of the grill that meat products are cooked," says Nohbudy. "It's company policy to split the grill, so non-meat products can be separated but not everyone follows it, especially during a lunch rush."

Chicken lettuce wraps at PF Chang's

"Costs under a buck to make and we sell it for $8

KFC Pot Pies

"82 different ingredients. Can't complain otherwise though. Manager runs a very clean restaurant," writes user Qp1029384756

Chipotle tortillas

There are 300 calories in a tortilla ALONE. That, plus all the calories in everything else, you could easily have a burrito with 1500 calories or more," And there's a ton of sodium in everything. Pretty much the only purely healthy thing there is the brown rice,

Buffalo Wild Wings' grilled chicken

"It's actually just frozen cubed chicken. Instead, I would recommend the blackened chicken salad. For that they actually used a chicken breast and grilled it with the blackened seasoning

I love Wendy's chili! ~ It doesnt sound too bad, at least its only overcooked meat and not something worse.

I've only ever eaten a couple of those things. Most just sound gross.

Yes. Thats the only thing I've eaten from this list and overcooked meat is whatever. I used to love to get a small chili and side salad for a cheap and somewhat healthy lunch
