No Surprise: Heart Attack at Heart Attack Grill

Share

An unidentified man (described as a “normal” guy in his 40’s) had a heart attack while he was eating a Triple Bypass burger at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas this last Saturday. Perhaps he was warned?

Heart Attack at the Heart Attack Grill. 

Oh, the Irony. Someone at the Heart Attack Grill gets a…(gasp!) Heart Attack. Sad? Yes. Surprised? No.

Every day we choose how we are going to eat, and every day those choices matter. Bad food choices on a regular basis have a negative affect on your overall health. An average 40-something doesn’t just get a heart attack! Those customers who weigh 350 pounds or more eat free at the Heart Attack Grill – perhaps this particular client (or as they call it, “patient”) was one of those who received a free meal?

Caution: This Establishment is Bad for Your Health

Everyone knows fast food is bad for you and can lead to poor health. The problem with those who eat at the Heart Attack Grill is that they have been fully warned about how bad the food is, yet they still willingly eat there.

Just as you enter the Heart Attack Grill, there is a sign on the front door that reads, “Caution: This Establishment is Bad for Your Health.” Probably the most honest advertising that I’ve ever seen.

The company slogan is, “taste…worth dying for”, which is sad and even ironic considering the last company spokesman for Heart Attack Grill was a morbidly obese man who died at the age of 29.

When are we going to wake up and actually do something about our health? What foods we put into our body matters. Act like it, please.

  1. Honestly, I don’t really get why places like this do any business. Being so proud of being morbidly obese and eating a sandwich that can kill you makes my head spin.

    At least McDonald’s pretends to care about providing healthy choices…

  2. Dan, it’s all about the money. Unfortunatey, too many people are supporting this business. As long as the owner is making money, he’ll keep making this disgusting food.

    I seriously want to gag when I look at the greasy burgers they serve there. Gross!

  3. Hey There Skinnytwinkie,
    Thanks for that, The reason I ask is because of a hospital themed restaurant I’ve been hearing about lately.
    Heart Attack Grill. “The Quadruple Bypass Burger® has been quoted by the media at around 8,000 calories”
    Before I saw this I was looking at a chart that compared fast food restaurant’s burgers and the highest calories out of all of them was 470. So I was a little surprised. Not really too much. If you really look at a picture of a Quadruple Bypass Burger it’s huge! D:

    So I’d like to know if there is a limit to how unhealthy food can be, or can a restaurant owner serve anything he/she wants?
    Any information related to this topic would be helpful since I’m in the middle of writing a paper about fast food.
    I’ll be back to read more next time
