    Default Restaurant Menus

    Is there a means of importing various restaurant dishes from popular chains?
    While obviously not the best in dietary choices, it might be helpful to have some dishes one could import.
    The better to count calories and other nutritional information.

    Not at the moment, but if you can provide a sample file, I could add that in (provided the file is readable, e.g. text format and not encrypted or binary).

    Most restaurant chains offer such on their website.

    McDonald's

    It's just a matter of going through and compiling it all.

    The problem with those files is that they're in PDF format, which is not ready to be machine-parsed (there are ways of doing this, but it's a bit harder than just parsing CSV or XML files). If the sites allowed to actually export that nutritional data as a text file, that'd be a lot easier, but I don't think they do.
