Heart Attack Grill’s Latest Victim Should Have Eaten at McDonald’s

heart attack grill collapseThe next time you're in Las Vegas and you want to eat so much that you drop dead, you definitely should stop into the Heart Attack Grill, which is claiming its third victim. While the latest person to drop inside the restaurant that boasts a Quadruple Bypass Burger that weighs in at two pounds and a Butterfat Shake (vodka flavored whipped cream, optional) didn't actually die, she can't have been feeling too great after her collapse. And what a collapse!

It seems the woman was enjoying a Double Bypass Burger, some unfiltered cigarettes, and a margarita. Now that's how you want to go out. Only, maybe not while you're in your 40s, like she is.

Looks like someone should have just dropped into McDonald's, which is looking positively healthy in comparison.

The Triple Bypass Burger (seriously, they have a bypass for everyone!) comes in at a whopping 6,000 calories. I thought perhaps a couple of burgers from McDonald's might equal the Heart Attack Grill's menu items, but apparently they are dead serious at the HAG about killing you with food. You would have to eat more than eight double cheeseburgers from McDonald's to equal that calorie count. The clown isn't sounding so bad for dinner now, is it?

Even the fast food burger with the most fatty calories -- the Carl's Jr Double Six Dollar Burger -- would have to be eaten in fours to meet the Triple Bypass. Suddenly, I'm not feeling so bad about driving through tonight.

Of course Las Vegas is not known for moderation, so you can hardly blame an entrepreneur for trying his hand at feeding people to death. And if you, as a consumer, walk in the door, it's totally clear that you know what you're getting.

Would you ever eat at the Heart Attack Grill?

How tragic and bizarre! And what a weird business model...

Is it terrible for you? of course that's their schtick but having seen a picture of this woman, it's doubtful that this was her first unhealthy meal; It's only a matter of time before a lifetime of eating bad, drinking and smoking catches up with you

And I bet she has no insurance, so our taxes will have to pay for her lifestyle choice.

Or knowing my luck, she's with the same insurance company as I am, and our premiums will increase because of her!

Holy hell! I've been to Vegas and there are WAY finer dining establishments where I'd spend my money. I'd be ashamed to walk into that place... O.o

No, this is shameful, America.

I've heard about this place. Very gimmicky. It sounds like it would be a fun place to go, but just once. If they actually have any regulars, I would be horrified.

I don't know that I would go there, but I wouldn't avoid it *just* because they cater to people in the 'eat yourself to death' category. (Those people tend to know where to get good food). But it's not like I couldn't split a meal with the kids or another grown up or take a portion of it home. You can (and I know people who do) order enough to consume 6000 calories from McDonalds or Denny's,
