Health Facts Monday – Calories Face-Off: T.G.I. Friday’s vs. Denny’s


I am sure a lot of people are familiar with T.G.I Friday’s and Denny’s even though they are not major Canadian restaurant chains.

I have been to both of them while I was vacationing in the States.  I found Denny’s was very filthy and the food was not that good.  On the other hand, T.G.I Friday’s was very similar to Jack Astor’s and the food were not bad.

But which restaurant serve healthier food?  I am guessing it is T.G.I. Friday’s because of the quality.   But let’s take a look:
