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.
Where’s the damn bacon?
Not if you’re a tour de France cyclist. They consume 12,000 calories a day when they are riding in it.
Oh my! Even the buns look good.
So that’s what happened to that place. Disappeared from Chandler, AZ, location a while back and nobody knew why.
Know we know.
We Navy fliers got used to the box lunch: it never changed, year in and year out: one Spam and cheese on Wonder Bread sandwich; one chicken wing; one hard-boiled egg; two chicklets; an apple; (sometimes also a granola bar); and a fruit drink. One day during the war we landed at an Air Force base in Thailand. We ordered rations for 12. We figured the same box lunch. Wrong. A truck rolled up to the ladder and out came 12 whole chickens; 40 pounds of potatos; six gallons of milk; fresh veggies; 60 fresh eggs; boxes of cookies and candy bars; more. This for a crew of 12 aboard a P-3 with no way to cook anything. We did have a green-with-age hot plate and a coffee pot, though. Never forgot how the Air Force ate. Or lived.
Always wanted to be assigned to a P-3 Squadron. Was never gonna’ happen so I cross rated to the Seabees.
Took several flights on AF birds and the box lunches weren’t bad. But I’ll never complain about Navy chow. It was damned good everywhere I went EXCEPT boot camp and Diego Garcia.
The women are beautiful but, to tell the truth, when I’m eating I don’t want a naked butt in my face.
Not all Air Force installations have such sumptuous dining facilities. A half-century ago, we were flying out to the Philippines on a C-121 and stopped at Wake Island to refuel. We pax were allowed off and herded into a mess tent and there experienced the worst meal ever. I’m sure that the few people stationed there permanently had another source of chow, because if they had to put up with that swill day after day, they’d have rebelled. It was a pretty relaxed place: the Airdrome Officer wore PT shorts, flip flops and a pith helmet.
We pulled in to Kadena one night (VQ3) with a down engine.
Air Force maintenance met us on the tarmac with an engine and a crew of 11.
We pointed at the bad one and they were contacting the Flight Engineer 3.5hrs later letting us know she was ready to roll.
We weren't even drunk yet!
In the Navy it was two men and the Flight Engineer...and 3 days.
Air Force had it good.
I went on a "Tiger Cruse" from Hawaii to Long Beach, CA on his last ship (FFG-1 USS Brook). I got to see the "living" conditions of the crew, including my dad, the most senior enlisted man on the ship.
I joined the Air Force.
Ever hear the expression, “serious as a heart attack”?
There is a reason. Eat that sh#t at your own peril. As to the business, good for them. I hope they succeed. They just won’t be getting my money.
I don't remember them being forced to change their name by the city but it wouldn't surprise me.
We are talking about the place with the toad tunnel.
