New! Nutrition Calculator

We're proud to have just launched a brand-new feature on our website: our Nutrition Calculator. While nutritional information on all of our items has been available on our website for a long time, the calculator takes this data to a whole new level.

With the nutrition calculator, not only can you build out your meal from beverages and appetizers to desserts, but you can customize it too, just like you do when you visit our restaurants. Prefer your Chicken Fajita Salad without the sour cream? No problem. Not a fan of whipped cream on your Strawberry Waffle? Take it off and recalculate. The nutrition calculator makes it easy to build your meal exactly how you like it.

The calculator is simple and quick to use. Just choose your menu category from the top drop-down menu, select the particular item you want from the bottom menu, and click “Get Nutrition Info”. You can add other items to your meal in the same way. If you want to remove an ingredient from a particular item, click “View Ingredients” under the item name, uncheck the box of the ingredient you want to remove, and then click “Recalculate Your Meal”. You meal totals will be updated to reflect the change. You can also add condiments to your meal using the “Condiments” menu category.

Here’s a sample meal that includes:
- Strawberry Lemonade
- American Grill Burger with no green peppers, and a side of BBQ sauce
- Caramel Latte Milkshake with no whipped cream

Click here to try it out for yourself, then come back and let us know what you think!

Excellent! One of the problems I have with static nutritional information is that it doesn't tell me who the guilty culprit is in the meal that I want to eat. So I have to make an educated guess or just avoid that menu item.

Now I know that if I want to cut the sodium of my buffalo chicken sandwich by 70%, I should ask for it on a superburger bun instead of the kaiser roll (306mg vs. 1022mg).

Thanks Eat'n Park!!
