Thumbs Up: Housemade Guacamole and Chips (pictured)
Late afternoon is prime snack time and Uno’s Snack Hours Menu steps up to the plate. Available from 4 to 7pm (and again after 10pm), you’ll find munchies like mini deep-dish pizzas, nachos, and crispy cheese dippers, all guaranteed to set you back some serious calories. Play it safe with the Housemade Guacamole and Chips for 230 calories.

Thumbs Down: Buffalo Chicken Wings
The granddaddy of the Snack Hours Menu, these wings sport an over-the-top 990 calories, 84 grams of fat, and more sodium than you should eat in a day.
