Heart Attack Grill: Taste Worth Dying For?

The Heart Attack Grill is an outrageously unhealthy, hospital-themed, fast food restaurant in Dallas, Texas, that serves high-calorie items with deliberately provocative names. This over-the-top eating establishment, whose tag line is “Taste worth Dying For,” has become internationally recognized for embracing and promoting an unhealthy diet of incredibly large hamburgers and greasy fries. The menu includes "Single", "Double", "Triple", and "Quadruple Bypass" hamburgers ranging from 1-2 pounds of ground beef, "Flatliner Fries" cooked in pure unadulterated lard, and “ButterFat Shake” with the world’s highest butter fat content. The "Quadruple Bypass Burger", the biggest item on the menu, is made of four beef patties totaling 2 pounds, practically a whole tomato, about half an onion, 8 slices of cheese and 16 slices of bacon, for a total of 8,000 calories. Customers are referred to as “patients,” their orders are called “prescriptions,” and the scantily clad waitresses act as “nurses.” A tag is wrapped on the patient's wrist showing which foods they ordered and a "doctor" examines the "patients" with a stethoscope. Customers who weigh over 350 pounds are served free food, and anyone who finishes a Triple or Quadruple Bypass Burger is rewarded by being wheeled out of the restaurant in a wheelchair by their "personal nurse.” This is a restaurant that clearly intends to kill you, and they're very forthcoming about it. The restaurant was founded in 2005 by Jon Basso, a former professional trainer, with the intent of serving food that’s “so bad for you it’s shocking.”
