Define ‘Irony': Man Has Heart Attack While Eating At “Heart Attack Grill”
It sounds like a bad joke when a "nurse" has to inform the "doctor" that a "patient" is having a heart attack in dinning room of "The Heart Attack Grill".
Formerly located in Chandler, AZ, "The Heart Attack Grill", now in Las Vegas, had a scary incident recently when a customer in his 40s started having chest pains while eating a 6,000 calorie burger called the "Triple Bypass". The owner, "Doctor" John Brasso, immediately called 911 and EMTs quickly arrived to tend to the customer, or "patient" as they are known. Luckily, the now actual patient is recuperating and expected to recover. The patient's burger consisted of 24 oz of beef, 15 slices of bacon, three slices of American cheese, a red onion, asliced tomato and special sauce. As daunting as that may seem to many people, its not even the biggest thing of the menu. Another half pound of beef, another slice of cheese, and five more strips of bacon make up the "Quadruple Bypass Burger".
Brasso's grill is known for having a unique sense of humor about their food, calling it "nutritional pornography, with slogans like "Taste worth dying for!" and "Cash only, because you might die before the check clears." However, Brasso is insulted by the insinuations that he orchestrated this as a publicity stunt for his diner,
"The tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that."
"The Heart Attack Grill" is one of the most unique restaurants you'll probably ever see, not only in appearance, but in their menu selections. Set up to look like a hospital, Waitresses, known as "nurses" and wearing scantily clad nurses outfits, will take "prescriptions" to the "patients" like the signature lard-fried "Flat-liner Fries", high-calorie "Butterfat Shakes", and unfiltered cigarettes. The grill also has a strange policy of free food for any "patients" who weight over 350 pounds.
Though this is the first time a "patient" has had a problem like this in the grill, this isn't the first tragedy for Brasso and his "nurses". Their 575 pound spokesperson Blair River passed away last year at the age of 29.
