A Quadruple By-Pass at the Heart Attack Grill

There's no salad bar at the Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona, but you can chow down on a single, double, triple or even a quadruple by-pass burger and a plateful of flatliner fries( fried proudly in pure lard.)

Wash it down with a beer or a margarita ( burp) and forget about getting a diet coke. There is no diet anything here. Their motto is "taste worth dying for". Need I say more?

If you can't make it to your car after dinner, a sexy nurse in scanty scrubs will wheel you to the parking lot in a wheelchair. Eat your heart out, Hooters( no pun intended)

I guess it's all in good fun and I'm sure the owners are laughing all the way to the bank, but it made me stop and think. Is this what the American dream comes down to? We Americans are the fattest people in the world and 47 million of us can't afford health insurance, but we can manage to gorge ourselves on beef and play hospital like it's all a big joke. What are we thinking? Isn't this kind of thing just too pre-global-financial meltdown for words?

Watch the video and you'll see what I mean. It's cute, but it made me want to go down to the crunchy granola cafe for a plate of bean sprouts and then spend twenty minutes on the treadmill.

Whoa, this is some seriously messed-up stuff! With the state of our nation's waistlines, let alone all the health problems that go along with that, this place should be shut down as a public nuisance! (IMHO)

People seem to love it--go figure:-)

"A meal to die for" -- are they very clever (and irreverent) or very stupid (and blind)?

Or is it just that they don't care ...?

both, I think. The main object is to make money and provide entertainment and they seem to be doing both bigtime--in your face, teenage rebellion goes down well here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. LOL

A French TV crew came and filmed at the restaurant awhile ago. I would like to have been a French speaking fly on the wall during that shoot. Mon Dieu!!!

These guys certainly hit on a money maker! Now if only there were a "fat tax" on those Quadruple Bypass burgers.

oh my gawd. That's terrible. That jiggly burger. Notice they only showed men customers. My husband heard this video from the other room and yelled, "hey, is that the heart attack cafe?" Seriously already knew about it.
