Investigation and pending class action lawsuit against Brinker International, Chili's Grill & Bar, Romano's Macaroni Grill, and On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina.
The ongoing investigation has led to a class action lawsuit which alleges that Chili's knowingly mislead consumers about the the level of fat grams, calories and carbohydrates contained in each restaurant chain's menu. Chili's marketed to consumers a "Guiltless Grill". Macaroni Grill marketed as "Sensible Grill". On The Border marketed as "Border Smart". Each restaurant chain marketed these new items on their menu, in there restaurants and in their advertisements. Chili's, Macaroni Grill and On The Border marketed these menu items as lower in fat grams, calories and carbohydrates. Chili's, Macaroni Grill and On The Border specifically set forth amount of fat grams, calories and carbohydrates on these menu items.
These representations are inaccurate and at times are double or triple the represented amount.
