You may have heard the news yesterday that a man in his 40s who was dining at the Heart Attack Grill (Las Vegas) suffered from symptoms of a heart attack while eating a 6,000 calorie burger called The Triple Bypass. (Source)
A restaurant that serves Single, Double, Triple, and Quadruple Bypass (8,000 calories) burgers. And all you can eat flatliner fries (fried in lard). Really?
A restaurant that has a house policy that any diner over 350lbs eats for free. Really?
Add 5, 10, 15, 20 bacon slices to your burger? Really?
A restaurant whose spokesman weighed 575lbs and died last year at age 29? Really?
Enter my opinion: It’s not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not healthy. I’d like to see Rip Esselstyn pay this restaurant a visit.
If you’ll excuse me, I need to go eat an apple. Or hug a pineapple.
Side note: Today’s is Rip Esselstyn’s birthday. You can wish him a plant-strong Happy Birthday.
Question: What’s your take on the Heart Attack Grill?
