Eat This, Not That - Kudos-to-Macaroni-Grill:
We've harped on Romano's Macaroni Grill for years. As home to such belly-ballooning classics as the 1,810-calorie Spaghetti and Meatsauce dinner and the 1,630-calorie New York Cheesesteak (with Caramel Fudge Sauce) dessert, we'd all but written off the Grill as a nutritionist's worst nightmare.They say the pasta's still awful in calorie-counts, but if you can hold yourself back, splitting a meal in two (either sharing, or saving for a second lunch the next day) might help. I've gotten better at that than I thought I would.
Those dietary disasters still lurk on the menu. But the latest upgrade in the Mac Grill's food offerings shows an entirely different culinary landscape. To our (enormous and pleasant) surprise, we now feel confident steering you toward this Italian-themed chain.
If you're at the Grill for lunch, order from the Mediterranean Grill section. If you're there for dinner, take your pick from the list of plates under Amore de la Grill (with the exception of the pork chops). All calorie counts fall in the reasonable range, and we're pleased that Romano's has added these fitter-fare choices.
