How unhealthy? If you manage to eat the Quadruple Bypass burger seen above, an order of french fries deep-fried in lard, and a triple butterfat milkshake, you'll consume 8,000 calories. We're all taught in our grade school health classes that the average person needs just 2,000 calories a day, so 8,000 can just about give you a heart attack — which is why the restaurant is named the way it is.
Another head-scratching policy the Heart Attack Grill has is that diners who weigh over 350 pounds get to eat at the restaurant for free.
This might be amusing to some people, but the consequences of obesity — AKA death — is not amusing. Earlier this year, the spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill, 29-year-old Blair River died of an obesity-related illness.
