The Triple-Bypass Burger with a Side of Flat-liner Fries

The Heart Attack Grill is an American hamburger restaurant in Las Vegas, Nevada (formerly Chandler, Arizona). It has courted controversy by serving high-calorie menu items with deliberately provocative names.

The establishment is a hospital theme restaurant: waitresses ("nurses") take orders ("prescriptions") from the customers ("patients"). A tag is wrapped on the patient's wrist showing which foods they order and a "doctor" examines the "patients" with a stethoscope.
The menu includes "Single", "Double", "Triple", and "Quadruple Bypass" hamburgers, ranging from 8 to 32 ounces (230 to 910 g) of beef (up to about 8,000 calories), all-you-can-eat "Flatliner Fries" (cooked in pure lard), beer and tequila, and soft drinks such as "Jolt" and Mexican-bottled Coca-Cola made with real sugar.
Customers over 350 lb (160 kg) in weight eat for free if they weigh in with a doctor or nurse before each burger. Beverages and to-go orders are excluded and sharing food is also not allowed for the free food deal.

The Heart Attack Grill menu consists of four burger varieties based on number of half-pound patties: the "Single Bypass Burger," the "Double Bypass Burger," the "Triple Bypass Burger," and the "Quadruple Bypass Burger." Each of the burgers can be augmented with "unadulterated" (not drained of the grease from cooking fat) bacon slices in quantities of four slices per patty, or 4 slices of bacon on the Single Bypass, 8 slices on the Double Bypass, 12 slices on the Triple Bypass, and 16 slices of bacon on the Quadruple Bypass Burger. All burgers are served, per patty, with a slice of American cheese, red onion, sliced tomato, and Heart Attack Grill's own unique special sauce.

"Flatliner Fries" (french fries) are the only available side item. These are fresh french cut potatoes deep fried in pure lard. Heart Attack Grill also offers three flavors of milkshakes, dubbed the "Butter-fat Shake," in vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry. This high calorie shake is so named because it is made from butter fat cream. Various packaged candies are also available as dessert items, most notably is the controversial candy cigarette.

For refreshment, high sugar content sodas are available, as well as bottled water, and several brands of malt liquor and beers that are served in the can. There is also a full bar which, in keeping with their theme, serves FAT bastard wines, and liquor shots served in 4 ounce novelty syringes.
