Waitresses at the Heart Attack Grill dress in nurse uniforms to serve up artery-clogging fare, including the Quadruple Bypass Burger seen here
You can't say you haven't been warned if you order up a gut busting 8,000-calorie burger meal at the Heart Attack Grill.
If the name of the restaurant isn't enough to make your arteries quiver, the Quadruple Bypass Burger should be all the clues you'll need.
It contains four half-pound beef patties, cheese and bacon and comes with a milkshake containing the world's 'highest butterfat content' (with an extra pat of butter) and 'Flatliner Fries' that are deep-fried in pure lard.
At least customers who weigh more than 350lbs won't get a heart scare over the bill - they can eat for free.
The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas is the third restaurant in the chain with the slogan - 'A Taste Worth Dying For'.
The other two in Dallas and Phoenix bit off more than they could chew when they had to close down in the face of protests from the community, but Sin City has been more welcoming so far.
Customers can wear hospital gowns when they walk in and they are served by waitresses dressed as nurses. Owner Jon Basso dons a doctor's uniform and there's even an ambulance parked out front.

Didn’t one of their promotional people die at a very early age recently?
Blair River was a big guy with a big heart.
River, who stood 6-foot-8 and weighed about 575 pounds, gained a measure of fame in the past year as spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill, a west Chandler restaurant that specializes in thick hamburgers and fries. He died on Tuesday at the age of 29.
The cause of death is currently unknown, but friends are speculating that it was the result of his contracting pneumonia after a bout with the flu.
8000 calories? Holy cow!
Two of those would be all the calories I’d need for a whole day! :P
If you supersize do you get your own nurse?
We used to have a place in Davis, CA called Murder Burger. They were there for years. You should have heard the libs squawking over the name and the fare (HUGE burgers and huge servings of onion rings that were a little too greasy but nevertheless to die for). They finally got an ultimatum from city officials to change their name or they'd be shut down, forced out, denied a license to operate, or some such totally un-American threat that raped the spirit of the constitution. So the restaurant had to cave and changed its name. Food's the same though and once a year or so I'll drop by and order something.
They go overboard on fat and calories, but they are appropriately thrifty when it comes to fabric for the waitress uniforms.
If that is what nurses look like now, I am too healthy!
Yes...that was him.
It’s 8000 calories. That’s 3-4 days worth of calories.
Yeah, I was kidding.
Small world. I happened to be going to graduate school during that time. It was the most stupid issue ever--as if eating at Murder Burger would make people think they were going to be murdered there (or some asinine objection). As I recall, they changed their name to Red Rum Burger.
And I graduated UCD in 2002, left CA in 2004, and have been back once to visit relatives.
THE TRIPLE CORONARY BYPASStm (aka THE SUPER STACK)
Made with two half-pound Vortex sirloin patties stacked inside three grilled cheese sandwiches, topped with two fried eggs, eight slices of American cheese, ten slices of bacon and plenty of mayo on the side. With this burger we choose your side for you, and its a big bowl of fries and tots covered in our cheesy-cheese goo. This super-stack is a heart attack waiting to happen. Enjoy!

Well the article doesn't mention where in Las Vegas this restaurant is. The restaurant is part of the Fremont Street Experience which is the "old Las Vegas" north of the main strip. The smaller of the burgers pictured above (single-bypass) is actually the best seller in the restaurant and a much more manageable size. With an order of Flatliner Fries and the Buttermilk Shake, you will still find yourself staggering out of the place.
For those who go to Las Vegas, I recommend that you park at the south end of the strip (near the MGM Grand or New York, New York) and walk everywhere. This will help you burn off those calories. Also, all that walking will keep you away from those slot machines a little big longer.
