Romano's Macaroni Grill Breakdown

Romano's Macaroni Grill Breakdown


Romano's Macaroni Grill can be found at or around almost every mall and strip mall in the USA. Many years ago I ate there once, and after taking a look at their nutritional menu today, I am shocked I didn't have a heart attack on the spot (exaggeration, I know). I know it's convenient and there are those of you that love this place, so before you go, be sure to check out this breakdown of many of the popular Italian items served.

Spaghetti & Meatballs (w/ meat sauce) 2430 128 57 207 5290
Traditional Lasagna 1040 54 30 65 2800

Before you go saying I've only pointed out the things that are bad for you, the only dinner items (aside from salads) that had less than 830 calories are listed ("Skinny Chicken," Chicken Cannelloni, and Simple Salmon)—almost every item had 1,000 plus calories.

Item Calories Fat (g) Saturated Fat (g) Carbs (g) Sodium (mg)
Lemon Passion 1150 56 29 149 910
Tiramisu 1000 64 36 89 160 (typo?)
Kids Double Mac 'n' Cheese 1210 62 40 107 3450
Kids Grilled Chicken & Broccoli 390 5 2 51 560
Kids Spaghetti & Meatballs (w/ tomato sauce) 500 20 8 58 1520

Are you as shocked as I am at the numbers above? Don't even get me started on the kids mac 'n' cheese.

If I were headed to this restaurant, I would be kicking and screaming, but I would have to order the "Skinny Chicken" with a house salad (w/o dressing) and a side of asparagus. I'd skip the dessert altogether unless I were sharing it with ten (or more) people. If you're getting anything other than the "Skinny Chicken," Chicken Cannelloni, Simple Salmon, or a salad with no dressing, split your meal with someone else to cut it back.
