Heart Attack Grill, an American burger joint in Las Vegas, Nevada, has received a lot of media attention recently after a customer had an apparent heart attack while eating a 6,000 calorie burger. There are so many noteworthy pieces to this story that I would like to discuss. First of all if you haven't heard of Heart Attack Grill you must check out their website and social media outlets. This restaurant takes pride in their outrageously unhealthy menu items with; servers dressed up as nurses, customers wearing hospital gowns, signs saying "cash only because you might die before the check clears", and allowing anyone weighing over 350lbs to eat free.
It is amazing that a restaurant with such ideals could even be successful today with all of the knowledge we have of healthy living and a balance nutritious diet. After the guest's recent heart attack while eating one of their famous Triple Bypass burgers many organizations are calling for the closing of this unique establishment. But the guests eating at the restaurant at the time assumed the heart attack was all a part of the act or some publicity stunt and many individuals were shooting videos and taking pictures of the man having the heart attack. Check out some video footage here.
When I first heard this story I assumed it was some sort of a joke. So what do you think? Would you welcome a restaurant like this into your community? Are you interested in trying one of their 6,000 calorie burgers? How will this publicized heart attack affect the restaurant's sales?
