The fame restaurant was in the news in February when a male patron fell ill while devouring a "Triple Bypass Burger" had to be wheeled out of the restaurant by emergency workers (not the restaurant staffers). For the second time, the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas seemingly to have lived up to its reputation in as many months: On Saturday, a woman patron collapsed at the restaurant known for cheerfully serving up artery-clogging entrees.
On Monday, Jon Basso, the owner wishes the customer a swift and full recovery. But, he added, the woman got exactly what she requested for: a brush with death.
The restaurant attract an avant-garde clientele thrill seekers, risk takers," he said. The restaurant is a "bad for you but fun" restaurant that attracts people who don't really take good care of their health, he added.
It was not immediately clear whether the woman's condition was all right; she was wheeled out of the restaurant by paramedics.
It has been told that she had been downing a margarita and smoking a cigarette, laughing, dancing, having fun before she fell ill. Baso said, if your body is treated that way day in and day out, ultimately your body is going to give out.
The Heart Attack Grill is a hospital-formated restaurant that belly laughs at doctors' orders to stay away of extremely caloric and fatty meals. As told in the February report waitresses dresses up skin-tight nurses' uniforms, and Basso the owner dresses as the cardiologist on staff, complete with doctor's white frock and stethoscope. Diners are called patients. . And on the menu: "Flatliner" fries cooked in lard, shakes made with pure cream, and four flavors of "bypass" burgers, as in single, double, triple or quadruple bypass.
The restaurant's Quadruple Bypass Burger for example has 10,000 calories. It also offers free meal to people who weighs more than 350 pounds. The Guinness World Records book crowned Friday the Basso's burger as the most caloric sandwich on Earth.
