Ever Doubt a Restaurant Calorie Count?

Just finished a delicious dinner of chain restaurant chili. According to the restaurant web site, an entire pint of chili made with ground beef and red kidney beans is 250 - 125 calories per cup. I find that VERY hard to believe - especially since most chili clocks in at least 200 per cup. Next time, I have half a mind to separate out the ingredients and weigh out the meat and beans.

Ever have a dubious take-out calorie count? If so, how do you log it in your food diary?
