Man suffers heart attack while eating "Triple Bypass" burger at Heart Attack Grill

"Doctor" Jon Basso thought "Nurse" Bridgett was kidding when she informed the Heart Attack Grill owner that a customer was suffering some medical difficulties in the dining room.

The situation was, in fact, as serious as a heart attack. FOX5 News Las Vegas reports that this past weekend, a man in his 40s began experiencing chest pains while consuming one of the restaurant's signature 6,000 calorie "Triple Bypass" burgers. Basso, who is not a medical professional, called 911, and EMTs and paramedics arrived on the scene quickly.

The customer - or "patient" as they are referred to at the restaurant, which moved from Chandler, Arizona to Las Vegas last October - is reportedly alive and recuperating. Sadly, that's not the case for the restaurant's 575-pound spokesman, who died last March at the age of 29.

Heart Attack Grill is no stranger to controversy, actively courting fans and nayayers alike with slogans like "Taste worth dying for!" and "Cash only, because you might die before the check clears."

Menu items like lard-fried "Flatliner Fries," highly caloric "Butterfat Shakes" and unfiltered cigarettes abound, scantily clad female servers dressed as nurses take orders as "prescriptions," and a house policy allows diners weighing over 350 pounds to eat for free.

Still, Basso calls the incident "horrible," and had harsh words for those attempting to make light of it. He told FOX5 News, "The tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that."

"Heart Attack Grill" was trending on Twitter throughout Wednesday, with sentiments such as, "Sorry customer at Heart Attack Grill in LV had heart episode. But you can't complain about getting the house specialty." from NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday host Scott Simon.

"I love this story for the irony; feel bad for customer," wrote ABC 17 News Weekend anchor and producer Evan Millward.

Basso claims that this is the first full-scale coronary that happened in his restaurant. The name of the patient has not been released.

    I do wish I could go to Las Vegas and try one of their burgers... once. I would only have the single, and eat about a tenth of the fries they offer as a single server. Actually, I would be more interested in buying t-shirts and coffee mugs to take home instead of the food. Yes, I have a morbid sense of humor just like the owner.

    you can die from a heart attack if you are 500lb or 140lb.....i have seen just add to the likelyhood if you are a fat ass.

    This is a CAPITALISTIC economy, which means that Americans have every right to compete on the market in the food industry. My God, if we start regulating restaurant food items, then we might as well just close down Chili's, Applebees, MacDonald's, In and Out, TGIF, and the list goes on and on. The beauty of America is that we have CHOICE. I might not choose to eat at Heart Attack Grill, but my husband might love it if only just to TRY it one time. I doubt that people eat all their dinners at the Grill. Come on...let people have a little decadence once in awhile. If they abuse it and eat like Paula Deen, then that is their choice. Yesterday, Jane Velez Mitchell told the owner to "shut down" because his food was killing people! Such dramatic and reactionary, paranoid behavior. It's AMERICA!

      I hardly doubt that a 575 pound fat f–k has only eaten at a restaurant like this once in his fat, sweaty, arteries clogged with crisco body at least several times...really...come on. Let's call a spade a spade, or in this case, a fat-ass-a-fat ass. Damn right I am judging him.

      Appalling. Even Stalin said, "One death is a tragedy, a thousand is a number." You are correct: we have choice. But Jesus Christ, have a little compassion for a fellow human being! If a person put a gun to his head and blew his brains out, you would say, "well, it was his choice." Are you human?! Do you not see a person in pain, crying out for help?

    • Darryl

      Choice in capitalism is an illusion. Is there really a difference between choosing McDonalds or Burger King? Both (and basically all) use the same systems of production because they are deemed the most cost effective. The result of capitalist competition is domination over the means of production (becoming the best competitor) and culture, which reduces options for consumers and labor. Further, people do not have the same options available to them. Social class shapes whether or not people are likely to live in a community that offers healthy food options and whether they can afford these better options.

  11. At Last: An End to the Fatty Menace. It's a Modest Proposal.

    This is the _greatest_ idea I have ever heard about. We need to purge this country of people too lazy & stupid to stay moderately fit. They're keeping our health care costs higher, are less productive at work, out sick with diabetes, sheer lazy fat-people-ness, etc. They're damaging the economy in all sorts of ways. Heck, they're even raising my gas prices: do you know how much more gas it burns to haul fat people around in cars?? Pretty soon we're going to run out of the stuff.

    Plus, who really wants to look at all that fat – could they at least stay off the beach in the summer, is that too much to ask?

    But now.... wow. Fatties check in, but they don't check out. We can _accelerate_ them right off of the planet! Plus, fatties make for great fertilizer. We should insist their bodies be donated to the agricultural industry, and used to grow healthy crops (oh, the irony – wouldn't it be tasty?)

    This place is like Darwin's waiting room, all these dead-end, useless excuses for humanity fatty side-by-side, jowl-to-jowl, just waiting for the Grim Reaper to come by (with some burly assistants) to haul them off to the great feedbag in the sky...

        Actually, the better analogy would be to suggest putting the XD40 in the front pocket of your cargo shorts, loaded and muzzle up, and unholstered. Adding a handful of golf tees would help...the idea being that you are going to do stupid and irresponsible things, it might as well hasten your departure from the gene pool.

    I was in Vegas last weekend when this happened and I saw it on the news. I also saw 4 people taken from casinos by paramedics, (in 3 days) but that didn't make the news at all. The owner of the place said that their food is the same you get at a lot of places, Hardee's, Outback, Cheddar's etc. They just don't pretend it's healthy at his place, and because of the name they get a lot more attention when something does happen. Sounds right to me.

      Nah, health insurance is expensive because we need it. And the greedy doctors, pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies know they can get away with ripping us off. Because they have lobbyists and they get laws that favor them passed, like mandatory insurance and banning things that are natural that actually help people.

        • doctoraly

          thanks Ray. Just to give some perspective, I'm one of those "greedy doctors", age 37, 3rd year fellow (physician trainee) in cardiology, have been working since age 22 (medical research, then med school, residency, medical research fellowship, now a fellowship), borrowed 130k for med school, have never made more than 50k/year and have been out of med school since 2004 (and made zero dollars and paid 33k tuition for 4 years during med school), and have paid 40k on student loans so far (only <20k went to principal, with 21k to interest). I have worked up to 100 hrs/week (during med school/residency), now down to 50-80hrs/week. I'm now "greedily" working at 7:30pm, have been here since 7am. Just took a break to read cnn...I agree a substantial part of health insurance expenses is because of people with chronic diseases, some caused by lifestyle problems that are mostly preventable, such as obesity, cigarette smoking, diabetes, and to some extent high blood pressure. It's a complex issue but you can't just chalk it up to "greedy doctors" and "greedy drug companies". Drug companies do make plenty of money, but one can't deny that some of their drugs have been, and are, life saving. We have to address poor diet and other lifestyle factors in our quest to contain health care costs.

        • Vern

          You respond to the "greedy doctor" notion with sarcasm; however avoided speaking on the insurance and pharmaceutical companies. While not all doctors are to blame,a few(C.M.O's),specifically those working for these two industries mask truths to protect interests and profit margins. If it is the case that you are not familiar with this truth please do some research!

    It was bound to happen sooner or later... Unfortunately many folks don't know how or when to "moderate". Just because you can order a burger with enough carbs and calories to feed twelve people doesn't mean you should. Buffet restaurants offer up "all you can eat days". Cruises offer endless buffet lines, as well. Most people take what they need and walk away. Others, however, take all they want, as if there will be no more food, ever. I witnessed a man on a cruise in a buffet dessert line who picked up a tray with no less than four large pieces of cake and then top all four with ice-cream... I thought perhaps it was for his family. No, he ate it all. The things people do to themselves...

    Plain and simple: this restaurant promotes unhealthy eating, and it plays well with the all-freedom no-shame mindset of the Americans. Some who just want to defy known medical science and ignore consequences will just pay the price.

      Wrong. The food there isn't any worse for you than the food at McDonald's or Cheddar's our Outback or Tony Roma's or Hardee's. The Heart Attack Grill just doesn't make any bones about the food being unhealthy.

      yes, healthy marathon runners can die from heart attacks or cancer. Every body is different, so there is no way to tell if a 6000 cal burger can kill you or not. But if you know you have high cholesterol and still want to take on a 6000 cal burger, you are just playing with fire. The only difference is life and death. Your freedom; your choice.

    The finger waving and clucking of disapproval where diet and weight are concerned is totally out of line in this country. It is no one else’s business what another person eats and people do not have the right to admonish anyone for the dietary choices. To put this in perspective let me just say that cooking in a quality lard is actually better health wise than cooking with butter and is little different than cooking in most forms of vegetable oil. In fact lard is a preferred form of shortening by any knowledgeable chef for most forms of baking. It has a high smoke point and gives food a distinctive flavor. Do you really think a plate for fries is any worse for you cooked in lard than say corn oil? If so you are a fool. The real reason most of you are appalled at this event is because it gives you a little feeling of false superiority over those who would choose to eat something that you consider unhealthy.

    The problem with most of you is that you really don’t know or understand what you are talking about and it’s not totally your fault. You’ve been brainwashed by a media machine that is only interested in making money and controlling public opinion. Most of you aren’t aware enough to see this because you are virtually asleep at the wheel. All you know and understand is that big brother, big screen TV says “X” so it must be true. It’s really a sad state of affairs we have come to in this country and it’s also extremely ironic that the number of people in society with some form of higher education is at an all-time high and yet we are too dumb to take even the slightest control or responsibility over our lives.

    • theow103

      Seriously? Are you really condoning eating a 6,000 calorie burger? How much fat do you think it takes to amass 6,000 calories in that thing? Granted there are probably about a couple hundred calories from carbohydrates and maybe the remainder of the first thousand in protein, but the remaining 5,000 are probably fat calories. That means about 500g of fat (granted that is an estimate, but I think I'm pretty close given the contents of that atrocity). Obesity is a HUGE problem in this country, no pun intended, and for you to actually say that people shouldn't be judged by what they choose to eat is ludicrous. People absolutely should be judged for making poor health decisions and then crying when they get too damn fat to get off the couch and go to work. People who defend this kind of behavior legitimately disgust me. You disgust me even more than the people actually eating that garbage.

      February 17, 2012 at 3:46 pm |
    • Mcccc

      I would actually have to say that cooking with good quality lard is much better for you than any of franken oils they use in restaurants these days (canola oil). Saturated fats have been wrongly demonized for years. The studies just do not reflect the general views at all.

      The same goes for high cholesterol foods. High cholesterol food has almost no effect on blood cholesterol levels in humans. Total fat intake is the cause for high cholesterol.

      February 17, 2012 at 2:44 pm |
      • I Believe Big Tobacco!

        I agree, completely. Studies _have_ shown lard is better than canoloa oil. Studies have also shown that cigarettes don't cause cancer – just ask the Marlboro Man!

        February 21, 2012 at 10:29 am |
      • Russ

        no,he is actually quite correct. Lard, being a natural ingrediant, has actually been PROVEN by several studies to be less harmful to you than many of the process oils (including canola). That is very true.

        You're an idiot Mcccc, you don't have any idea what you're talking about in the slightest. Yet, here you are trying to sound knowledgeable and recommending that people avoid Canola oil in favor of lard. Lard? Are you kidding?

        I especially like the tactic of calling Canola oil a "Frankenoil", as if it was a man made product cooked up in some laboratory. Leave the advice giving to someone else, like a nutritionist.

      The problem with this country is that we DON'T have a collective sense of shame or guilt. Anyone who tries to encourage a any moral standard today is rebuffed with highbrow tactics trying to rationalize sin. Gluttony is sin. It's a moral and societal blight on those who partake in it and pass the medical costs onto others. Save your empathetic observations. Eating poorly in such a haughty, intentional manner is disgusting.

      You have the stupid part covered. Lard is definitly better for you than man-made cooking oils with partially hyderogenated whatever and lots of trans fats. Any idiot that thinks that this burger caused this heart attack is clueless. Perhaps the patients behavior over time but not this burger.

      Dr. Sanjay Gupta had a special on CNN about the Last Heart Attack Diet. It mentioned a book called Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn which I got from my local bookstore. It mentioned that 85 percent of heart attacks are caused by the last meal you eat. I mentioned this to my next door neighbor who is an emergency room nurse and she confirmed that this was true. I was floored that this is not on billboards and tv public service announcements. The book has a very detail explanation as to how that happens. The bottomline was a plant based diet is the best way to prevent a heart attack and even though you may have spent the last 60 years eating a high fat diet you can quickly change your health. Plus eating protein contributes to osteoporsis which runs in my family. So about 3 months ago I became vegetarian and I lost 20 pounds without even trying and my blood pressure dropped by 20 points. I absolutely feel fantastic since I changed my diet. It has been my experience you really can make a difference in your health and quickly by changing your diet.

    This really isn't funny in the sense that the guy had a life-threatening issue... But it still made me laugh

    Finally, truth in advertising.

      Considering how large a person would have to be in order to eat a 6000 calorie burger and not be miserable afterwards, the guy probably ate for free.

    Health food? No, but I'm sure customers have had heart attacks in salad bars too. Point is, it's up to each of us to choose to stay healthy (or not). Will one triple kill you? Unlikely unless you choke on it & are otherwise healthy. Is this something you should do to your body every day? We all know the answer.... I'm glad I have a choice!

    Heart Attack Grill is an interesting place. I ate there a couple years ago. The comments on this story were also pretty intriguing, so I highlighted some of them on our news blog. Check it out and thanks for participating:

  40. Been there...

    I've had this burger. I love greasy burgers (bacon, cheese, and everything) but this was the worst tasting burger I have ever had.

      Wrong place at wrong time? That implies he played no part in his heart attack!

      The "wrong place at the wrong time" is generally used for people stricken by lightening, being killed by a falling tree, or some other random, completely unavoidable event. This obese man had many choices to make in this situation of which the most significant was walking into the restaurant to begin with, then odering the 6,000 calorie burger, and by being over weight to begin with.

        I believe you should have said he died from the poison tablets they gave him thinking it was his ulcer medication.
        They loaded his burger up with some hot stuff.

        He's referring to the line in Dumb and Dumber when the guy dies eating a burger and his last words are, "Talk about being in the wrong place, at the wrong time!!". Calm down, you oversensitive trolls.
