Man Has Heart Attack at Heart Attack Grill: Would You Ever Eat There?

It was bound to happen -- practically written into their policy: The Heart Attack Grill, a restaurant chain known for its high-calorie menu, caused someone to actually have a heart attack. In the restaurant. The man, thought to be in his 40s, did survive, but had to be wheeled out of the chain's Las Vegas location by paramedics. He was eating a Triple Bypass Burger, which sounds even more ironic until you learn Bypass Burgers are all they offer.

The Heart Attack Grill has a simple menu: Single, Double, Triple, and Quadruple Bypass Burgers -- each one adding an additional 2,000 calories -- and Flatline Fries fried in pure lard. The burger the man was eating contained three half-pound patties, 12 "rashes" of bacon, onion, tomato, and hefty slabs of special sauce. The chain is also known for offering free food to customers over 350 pounds.

But chain executive (and former Jenny Craig diet centre employee) Jon Basso says the restaurant does draw lines, "I actually felt horrible for him because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humour, we would never pull a stunt like that." Would you ever eat at The Heart Attack Grill?

    The restaurant caused this man's heart attack? Right! Just like spoons make people fat and pencils misspell words.

    I am on a very restricted diet..especially fats..i have hardening of the arteries in my neck and they are below 50% so i want to keep it that way...and back in 81 when i was only 35 and very thin, i had to have my gallbladder removed..I ate tons of fat all my life and it got me..so i made a complete turn around. No fats and no sugar...i do pig out only on holidays..But this man knew what he was eating..

    We're all responsible for our own health (unless you are mentally retarded or otherwise mentally incapacitated). We don't need the good idea fairies (Mrs. Obama or any other liberal) telling us what to eat.

    I would eat there, but I wouldn't eat the way some of those Guy's that think they can keep eating like they are invincible. We all have common sense, but some of us just don't have one I suppose.

    Not for fear of a heart attack, but it's kind of a sad day when "high-calorie" is a gimmick that successfully draws in customers.

    One hamburger is not going to cause you to have heart attack. It takes a lifetime of bad eating habits to cause the heart arteries to become so clogged that the heart shuts down.

    What a bunch of BS not even a dozen such hamburgers are going to cause a heart attack unless your heart and body are already in bad shape.

    I'd just take out 2 of the meat patties, & eat 1 normal size burger. And I bet they have REAL beef! And no, I'm not a vegetarian. Sorry.
