Question by Jenn: When you order a burger at Dennys, & it has about 1,000 calories or so, does that include the fries’s calories?
Ok, so the question is confusing, let me explain. For example, when I look at the nutrition facts on food on the Denny’s menu, say I’m gonna order a burger which I usually don’t to be honest, but this is in case I do. So anyways, there’s a Mushroom Swiss burger there and it says calories: 860 and on the menu it says “served with french fries, vegetables, or hash browns do those add ADDITIONAL calories? Or when the Denny’s nutrition menu (where it lists calories, fact carbs etc) does the total 860 include the side of fries, veggies, or hash browns or does the burger have 860 calories THEN an extra 200 or so for the side of fries, veggies, or hash browns? I know this is confusing, but if I do ever order a burger and I count my calories I don’t want to confuse myself and say “oh I ate 860 calories with this burger” and then actually have eaten more with the fries without myself knowing so that’s why I wanted to know if the 860 calories for the burger is the total and including the fries or 860 calories for the burger without fries, veggies, or hash browns of my choice?? Don’t judge me and say “oh don’t ever eat that!” I’m just asking a question.

That’s for the burger only; sides are extra calories.
