Heart Attack Grill

Skooter reporting 02/17/12

Be careful what you eat. Some millions of Americans are health conscious and that they watch what they eat. But here is one Las Vegas man has excruciatingly discovered that the place where you eat can have a big blow on your health as well. The story of a Las Vegas man is too uncanny to be true, he suffered a heart attack after eating a “triple bypass burger” (what a name) at the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas, Fox5 reports.

This is what I call typical tragicomedy because you can’t blame or sue the restaurant for not issuing fair warning. If you dig into its website they smugly proclaims the menu offers, "Taste Worth Dying For!" By the way the man in question luckily survived his attack.

The management of the Heart Attack Grill said that this is the first actual known cardiac incident at this restaurant. “Nurse” Bridgett who worked at the restaurant at that time described what actually happened. She said the man was having the sweats and shaking. By the way employees at the restaurant are given fake medical titles as their gimmicks, including the establishment's owner, "Doctor" Jon Basso.

“Doctor” Basso told Fox5 he felt sorry for the gentleman because the tourists were taking snaps of the suffering man as if it were some type of act or gimmickry. Even with their own moody sense of humor, they would never pull a stunt like that.

"He was sweating, suffering. Anyone with an ounce of compassion would've felt for him," he said. “Doctor” Basso said the man’s identity is kept private and that he is recovering from the dreadful attack.

Certainly you can't blame clients for being caught up in the overpowering sense of sarcasm. Not only is the restaurant named the Heart Attack Grill, but its sign tells potential diners that if you are "over 350 pounds eats free." There's even a lighthearted warning sign at the restaurant's door stating that the offered dining charge is a health risk.

Would you like to pound on these menu items available at the Heart Attack Grill? Take a look at this: the butterfat milkshake, non-filtered cigarettes, "flatliner" fries and four different burgers, each rated on an ascending scale of one bypass to the quadruple bypass burger.

The list is indeed a risk!
