This burger joint claims that it can give customers a heart attack

Here’s what it’s like to eat at the Heart Attack Grill. Yes, it’s in Las Vegas.

THE HEART ATTACK Grill has been in the news recently after its owner ‘Doctor Jon’ Basso gave a bizarre interview on Bloomberg TV where he said his restaurant kills its customers. He even carried the (alleged) cremated remains of a customer with him.

And while it’s a macabre gimmick, it’s not entirely inaccurate. Heart Attack Grill is crazy unhealthy: The restaurant’s signature dish is its 9,982-calorie Quadruple Bypass Burger, which weighs a staggering 3 pounds. Customers can order burgers with up to eight patties, all topped with chili, tomato, cheese, onion, and bacon (for an extra fee).

Inside, the restaurant has an ironic medical theme with nurse waitresses and hospital-themed decor. Even the customers have to wear hospital gowns, and anyone more than 350 pounds eats for free.

Here’s how a trip there for lunch goes:
