Heart Attack Grill lives up to name

2012-02-16 11:18

Los Angeles - A man suffered cardiac arrest while eating a hamburger at a Las Vegas restaurant that calls itself The Heart Attack Grill in recognition of the huge servings of meat, fries and milkshakes that it prides itself on, local TV channel Fox 5 reported on Wednesday.

The unnamed diner was eating a "Triple Bypass Burger" that comprises some 700g of beef as well as a dozen bacon slices when he complained of chest pains and was rushed to hospital where he is now recovering.

The restaurant, which opened last year, prides itself on serving meals that surpass 10 000 calories. It features servers dressed as scantily-clad nurses who take "prescriptions" from their "patients".

The restaurant also offers free meals to anyone over 170kg.

It displays signs such as "CASH ONLY - Because you may die before the check clears."

Its tagline may also be a little too close for comfort for the unfortunate diner. "Taste worth dying for!" the restaurant's website crows.

    the fat turd deserves a heart attack- people must realise that when they indulge in animal flesh, that too much is not just bad for your health but disrespectful to the animals being mercilessly killed for the extra pound on their a**. 700g of meat??? that is what a full grown male 'requires' in 10days, not one sitting. Never mind the disgusting bacon... what a shameless business.

      Totally agree. I also think that a restaurant that is promoting obesity and unhealthy living should not be allowed to operate. 10 000 calories? thats more than I eat in a week!! SIES. Totally shameless.

      You are a sad person Irene. Give me some of that sweet sweet bacon anyday!

      Yes Hans, living a compassionate and healthy lifestyle certainly makes me a sad person... grow up, bacon jokes are getting seriously old. I need only look at the number of thumbs down to see how sick our society is, not even 20% of what they sell in supermarkets today is 'healthy' food, enjoy your processed cheese, ham and liver, I dont care so much for the ignorant adults, but I feel sorry for kids born into homes where people dont care about what they eat- what you eat and drink determines your health, longevity and overall value of life. Shame hans, I feel sorry for you. PS: Pigs are the 4th smartest mammal on earth- next time you salivate after some pork bacon, I would like to remind you that pigs have the emotional intelligence of a four year old child... how does that sit on your conscience?

      Get it off my conscience and onto my plate. And pass the Tabasco sauce! http://republicofbacon.com/2011/06/24/are-these-the-rules-of-bacon/

      I'm with you Irene! I'm having a debate about this very thing on another post here on News24 about the rabbit issue. People need to be educated about their health and stop following blind (like zombies) the crap that they have been "sold"
