Vegas diner chillingly lives up to its name

The fact that two patrons had heart attacks in the same restaurant two months apart probably isn’t that unusual.

But the setting is.

Both suffered their maladies in a Las Vegas place called the Heart Attack Grill.

The woman who collapsed in the most recent case was eating a “double bypass” burger.

The man who had an apparent heart attack in February was eating a 6,000-calorie “triple bypass.”

Both menu items pale in comparison to the signature “quadruple bypass burger,” which features four half-pound beef patties and eight slices of cheese, totaling 8,000 calories.

Officials for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine sent a letter to the owner, asking him to “declare moral bankruptcy” and close the restaurant.
