The Heart Attack Grill
450 Fremont Street
89101 Las Vegas
The Heart Attack Grill is not your every day burger joint. It’s got a hospital theme since eating a burger there is not the most healthy food option to be found in Las Vegas. So who knows what’s going to happen, right? Waitresses are dressed as hot nurses with enormous cleavage and short dresses. That’s a nice bonus, surely appreciated by most male visitors.
When you enter the restaurant you get a hospital gown and wrist band which you have to wear. This will actually save time in case you suffer a heart attack while eating. Customers who weigh more than 350 pounds can enjoy a free meal! I can tell you this, after eating at the Heart Attack Grill 3 or 4 times you will feel like weighing 350 pounds or more. If you wonder how to prove your actual weight, don’t worry because they have a scale to measure your weight before and after your meal.
In 2013 the unofficial spokesman of the Heart Attack Grill died because of a heart attack. A year earlier a customer suffered a heart attack while actually eating the Triple Bypass Burger. So don’t say we didn’t warn you…….
On the menu you can find a variety of burgers: “Single”, “Double”, “Triple”, up to “Octuple Bypass Burger”. You can add 5 bacon slices to the Single Bypass Burger and up to 40 (YES REALLY) bacon slices to the Octuple Bypass Burger. The “Flatliner” fries are fried in pure lard which makes them even more unhealthy. When you order a Pepsi light, they will make fun of you (obvioulsy), because you just can’t get a light soda. The largest burger they serve is in the Guinness book of records for being the most calorific burger. This is a 3-lb 2.94-oz burger! Try and guess how many calories this burger has. I’ll give you the answer at the end of this review…..
The restaurant’s theme is nice and the walls are covered with fun posters and other attributes. When you don’t finish your meal you’re asked if you want to be spanked. If you agree, you have to bend over and one of the nurses will hit you on your ass with a piece of wood (pretty hard too, they seem to enjoy the spanking that goes on). I can assure you they won’t hold back.
I ordered the Double Bypass Burger, which was pretty huge in my book. I didn’t finish the meal, but decided to skip the spanking. I kinda appreciate my ability to sit normally.
Would I go back again for the quality of the burgers? Probably not, because the food wasn’t all that special. But I probably will come back for the atmosphere since we really had a great time at the Heart Attack Grill.
For those of you who are curious about the amount of calories in the largest burger: The amount is 9.982 calories. This is the amount of calories a grown man normally eats in 4 days.
