This Rockford restaurant chain usually goes for it with the drink specials, but when it comes to the highest calorie meal in town, they aim to take that title too.

Thrillist put together a story on the highest calorie chain restaurant meals and the results are staggering.

The highest calorie meal on the list came from Cheesecake Factory. An order of chicken and biscuits comes in at 2,260 calories, 68g of fat and 2,870mg of sodium. That's a day of eating in only one sitting for most people.

Since Cheesecake Factory isn't located in Rockford, the nearest one is at 53 Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, we looked for the highest calorie meal in town you could actually eat, like, tonight.

That's where the place that is slowly becoming known for their month-long drink specials, comes in.

When Applebee's isn't selling $1 Long Island Iced Teas, Margaritas or Bahama Mamas, they are serving up the highest calorie chain restaurant meal in Rockford.

Applebee's New England fish and chips, has 1,990 calories, 137g total fat, and 4,540mg of sodium. Thrillist says "If you only have time for one meal a day, this Applebee's meal consisting of three fried fish pieces has your back."

If you're looking to try and take down the highest calorie chain restaurant meal in Rockford tonight, Applebee's is located at 1675 East Riverside Boulevard and 6845 East State Street.
