Heart Attack Grill, Arizona USA


Aileen forwarded this email to me and I definitely have to share it in my blog. Read on and be amazed...

Heart Attack Grill is a hospital-themed restaurant in Chandler, Arizona and the intent of the restaurant is to serve "nutritional pornography", food so bad for you it's shocking.


The menu includes "Single," "Double," "Triple," and "Quadruple Bypass" hamburgers, ranging from half a pound to two pounds of beef, "Flatliner Fries" (cooked in pure lard), cigarettes, beer and liquor, and soft drinks.

The names imply coronary artery bypass surgery, and refer to the danger of developing atherosclerosis from the food's high proportion of saturated fat and excessive caloric content. The Quadruple Bypass burger has 8,000 calories. Customers who finish a Triple or Quadruple Bypass burger are pushed in wheelchairs to their cars by the waitresses.

Goodness!!! What has the world come to??!! I can't believe that such a restaurant exists in America. Then again, it is America. But honestly, I admire the owner and creator of this restaurant for braving to put this up. I can just imagine the loads of criticism he's received and still go through with it.


I mean, if you don't have any value left over your life then you might as well swing by this place. Unbelievable!! But I'm sure the owner would say it's the choice of the customers to go here. If they feel offended or find it ridiculous then don't go. Which, if you actually think about it, is true.

No one really told you to finish that burger in one seating or to go here if you have a health condition. Acually, if I had the chance, I'd visit this place just for the heck of it, to take pictures or something haha.

This concept reminds me of "Burger Avenue" in the Philippines where they also serve humongous burgers that they give to you for free if you can finish it in 5 mins (they call it the 'Ridiculous Challenge'). But compared to Heart Attack Grill, Burger Avenue is kiddie stuff, haha.

There's also a place here in Singapore called "Clinic", though they're more of an upscale bar and restaurant but with a very similar theme.

OMG... we NEED a restaurant like that in Singapore!

I know the burgers look like monsters. But somewhere in it are proteins! And... proteins are supposed to be good for you :)
