Heart Attack Grill. Really?

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?

  1. i’ve just read that story and couldn’t believe it! Did you see the awful comment from a member of staff who said “I actually felt bad for him” or similar – as if that was a huge concession! I couldn’t believe the free food for the heaviest people either, so wrong in every way 😦

What's on your mind?
