Catering to gluttony is big business these days. Practically every restaurant including all the popular chains that you and I and every other American dines at, now and then goes way overboard in the super-sized portions they dish up and the bad-for-your-health ingredients in the food.

Mine meets at Anthony’s of Malden. Go to there web-site to see what’s on the menu.
Only here in America, which is full of evil Capitalists. For over in China, which is full of noble workers, Obama will soon establish a cap and trade system whereby your bread, meat, and desserts will be given to those less fortunate. ("Shut up and eat your thistles. They're good for youl.")
Most of the profit doesn’t really come from the food.
It comes from the drinks and alcohol that might be consumed with it.
If a restaraunt can get you in THEIR door and not their competitors’, they’ve made the largest step towards profit.
Larger portions were a way of enticing people to choose a particular joint, but then they all joined in.

Nah, I just enjoy a good meal. And it's two plates for me.

Speaking of gluttony and crab rangoon. . .
I eat my weight in them suckers atleast twice a month.
Restaurant food is unfit for dogs. Their fish is almost always farmed, and loaded with industrial strength hormones and dyes. (farmed salmon is really battleship gray; not red)
Why eat out? Because you’re out, and you’re hungry?
I agree with you completely. I go to those places to pig out once in a while too. I guess I’m just saying some people need to be honest with themselves and realize their choices have consequences.
‘Claim Jumper’ has built there empire on ridiculously over-sized portions.
“But, Sir, it’s wafer-thin.”
The communist way is to soften you up through vice.
To 'enjoy' a much shorter, and more difficult life maybe?
Right on. I don’t see a difference between that and cheering on a back alley full of addicts shooting up heroin.
