I have been watching this restaurant called Heart Attach Grill going up in old town in Vegas for the past couple of years. I thought the concept was funny, and their over the top style really appealed to me. Now that they are standing up for our constitutional right to gluttony, I have to applaud. I really don’t want health advocates knocking my ability to make bad choices. That being said I think the health advocates should be up the FDA’s butt on the education front. Does everyone know what is healthy for them? Do people know the nutritional value of foods and what that means? I doubt it. I have been a pupil of food for many years and those facts on food are not the obvious ones.
Here is the article from Fox News by Associated Press:
The restaurant owner of the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas where a patron recently suffered an apparent heart attack while eating a 6,000 calorie Triple Bypass Burger defended his place as a freedom-loving establishment based on values our nation’s “Founding Fathers intended us to live” by.
Speaking on Fox and Friends Friday morning Jon Basso says his restaurant isn’t just a place to get artery clogging meals, like the Triple Bypass.
“What it’s all about is a place where you can live the way our Founding Fathers intended us to live, and that is by our own accord,” he said.
Inside the theme restaurant there are “doctors” and ”nurses” — staff dressed up in white coats and nurses hats — and health warnings on the walls. Diners are given surgical gowns to wear while they choose items like “Bypass” burgers, “Flatliner” fries and buttermilk shakes.
