The basic theme of this restaurant is to present as unhealthy food options as possible. The restaurant is basically trying to offer food that can cause a heart attack. The restaurant has a hospital theme with waitress dressed as nurses and customers dressed as patients.
They even take orders in form of prescriptions from the customers who are patients. The patient aka customers are given a hospital gowns and wrist band before they place an order. And customers who don’t finish their orders get a paddling by the nurse tending them.

The menu as mentioned earlier has been made insanely unhealthy with Single, Double, Triple, Quadruple, all the way up to Octuple Bypass hamburgers. These hamburgers have beef stuffing of about 230 to 910 g which means you end up eating 8,000 calories.
The burgers here are dressed with smothering levels of bacon and cheese. This makes them tastier and of course luscious. But the restaurant is actually making them fattier and obnoxiously unhealthy. In fact, the burger having most calories in the world, the Octuple Bypass Burger with 20,000 calories is found at Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas.

Other ‘unhealthy’ options on the menu include Flatliner Fries that are cooked in pure lard. In drinks you get beer and tequila, and soft drinks such as Jolt and Mexican-bottled Coca-Cola made with cane sugar. Even the drinks here come loaded with extra sugar which makes them extremely unhealthy. The menu also gives an outrageous vegan suggestion – cigarettes. That’s shocking enough for any of us but that’s the theme of the restaurant.
The restaurant is an adventure that you can try once in a while. But if you feel like going often then perhaps it might uphold its name and be instrumental in giving you a heart attack.
