NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Most of us enjoy going out with a few friends to our favorite chain restaurant. We like to sink our teeth into a Bloomin' Onion at Outback Steakhouse  (BLMN) , some boneless barbecue wings at Buffalo Wild Wings  (BWLD) or soup and a sandwich at Panera  (PNRA) .

But we all know what happens next. We eat the delicious food, we're happy for a few moments and then we ask ourselves, "Why did I just do that?"

At some restaurants, this feeling is not as pronounced. But there are a few establishments where you feel like you need to be removed by crane after you finish your meal.

If you're brave enough, come take a trip through the 15 unhealthiest meals from U.S. chain restaurants. Prepare to be sad and quite possibly nauseated.
