The Heart Attack Grill
February 16, 2012 by staff
The Heart Attack Grill, The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas is proud of its name. It warns customers, “This establishment is bad for your health.” So this story may sound too good to be true: A customer at the restaurant, while eating a 6,000-calorie burger called the Triple Bypass Burger, was stricken with an apparent heart attack. And it was all caught on the cell phone video
But some patrons thought it was all an act. The video of the incident went viral online. The video shows paramedics wheeling a man having a heart attack out of a restaurant that advertises its food can kill. It’s the kind of publicity other restaurants would run from — but not this one.
Jon Basso, owner of the Heart Attack Grill, told CBS News, “We throw slogans at you like, ‘Taste worth dying for.’”
Basso calls himself Dr. Jon and his waitresses “nurses.” Diners wear hospital gowns.
“I am here to tell you straight out I am here to make a buck,” Basso said.
Basso says plenty of restaurants serve unhealthy food — he’s just honest about it.
Basso told CBS News, “Anything that is legal that you want to eat or drink that’s fun, that enriches your life at the moment, I will sell it to you.”
Sharon Myers, a Heart Attack Grill customer, said at a visit to the restaurant, “Every once in a while you have to indulge, so we thought we would indulge today.”
