Well, it had to happen eventually.
A guy in Las Vegas was was chowing down on the appropriately enough named Triple Bypass Burger that packs on 6,000 calories when he started having chest pains, the sweats and started shaking.
The good news: he’s alive and recuperating.
But the owner of the restaurant, “Doctor” Jon Basso, said other customers thought the whole ordeal was a joke, some taking photos of the man suffering the heart attack. “Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that,” Basso said.
The restaurant carries the slogan “Taste Worth Dying For,” and that seems like a very real possibility with fries deep-fried in pure lard, and burgers like the Quadruple Bypass Burger that includes two pounds of beef, tomato, red onion, four slices of cheese and the option to add 20 slices of bacon that all comes to about 8,000 calories.
Oh and what meal wouldn’t be complete without unfiltered Lucky Strike cigarrettes or a ButterFat Shake?
Customers, or “patients,” don a hospital gown and are waited on by scantily clad waitresses or “nurses,” while a “doctor” comes around to check vital signs.
What do you think of this place and would you ever think of trying it?
