Heart Attack Grill

Thomas Chrzan eats a hamburger at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, NV in February, 2012. Chrzan suffered a massive heart attack in December of 2011. The doctors informed him that he had a 100% blockage of his L.A.D., dubbed the “widow maker.” He survived, and celebrated his first post-hospital meal at the Heart Attack Grill. He returns occasionally to enjoy a burger.
The restaurant, the brainchild of Jon Basso, has been mired in controversy from the start, but attained international notoriety after a patron suffered an actual heart attack while dining there. The hospital-themed establishment has waitresses dressed as nurses and patrons must wear a hospital gown while dining on options such as the quadruple bypass burger and butterfat milkshake. Customers who weigh over 350 lbs eat for free.
