Restaurant Snacks

Snack Menus Decoded

Move over appetizers, entrées, and desserts. Thanks to our love affair with snacking, restaurants everywhere are now offering snack menus. In the last four years the number of snack foods on restaurant menus has exploded 170% and that growth is expected to continue to skyrocket. While snack menus might sound like a great way to get a grip on between-meal hunger, most of their offerings aren’t always healthy (think sliders, quesadillas and wings), often packing enough calories and sodium to qualify as a meal.

Our guide to the best and the worst of the new snack menus will keep you on the right track.
