A customer pushed in a wheelchair by a nurse-waitress at Heart Attack Grill
The Heart Attack Grill is a hamburger restaurant in Chandler, Arizona in USA with a controversial business idea.
Heart Attack Grill was founded in 2005 by Jon Basso who works in the restaurant and appears publically dressed up as a doctor and under the name Dr. Jon.
Heart Attack Grill’s business idea is to serve high-calorie hamburgers and other things generally considered bad for your health. * Their slogan is ”Taste worth dying for”.
At Heart Attack Grill you can get an 8000 calorie burger for 10$ USD. 8000 calories is more than double the recommended daily intake for an adult male.
Their hamburgers have the controversial names named after surgical heart procedures: Single, Double, Triple and Quadruple-bypass. The Quadruple Bypass has as it suggests four hamburger-meats between the hamburger buns which are cooked in lard.
The Quadruple Bypass Burger
In The Quadruple Bypass Burger, there are four half pound slices of meat, almost a whole tomato, half an onion and eight slices of cheese.
They also serve other non-healthy things such as ”Flatliner fries” cooked in pure lard, unfiltered cigarettes, beer and liquor, jolt cola and mexican coke made with real sugar.
At Heart Attack Grill, the customers are treated as ”patients”. A tag is wrapped around the customers hand with his or her’s ”perscription” (order) written on it. And a man dressed up as a doctor listens to the customers with a stethoscope.
The Waitresses at Heart Attack Grill is dressed like naughty nurses which the restaurant has recieved a lot of criticism for. * The Arizona Board of Nursing accused The Heart Attack Grill of violating state law. Only a person who holds a valid and current license to practice professional nursing may use the title nurse.
If a customer orders a Triple- or Quadruple-bypass they recieve a free wheelchair ride from the restaurant to their vehicle by one of the nurses.
At Heart Attack Grill, anyone who weighs over 350 pounds (158,8 kg) can eat as much as they want for free.
