If your idea of heaven is a burger, topped with cheese, onions and bacon, and another burger topped with cheese, onions and bacon… and another burger, topped with cheese, onion and bacon and so on, then a trip to the calorific Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas is the place to be.
This is a merciless assault on the arteries, offering Single Bypass Burger®, Double Bypass Burger®, Triple Bypass Burger®, Quadruple Bypass Burger®. The biggest, (the quadruple) is made of four half pound meat burgers, eight slices of cheese and 16 slices of bacon. Oh and the bun is layered in lard. The name might have started jokingly, but people have actually had heart attacks eating here.
The restaurant is a kind of play on the infamous over-consumption found in the States and its founder, John Basso says it’s “nutritional pornography… food so bad for you it is shocking.”

The whole place is kitted out like a hospital, complete with busty waitresses dressed as nurses who hand out prescriptions and for anyone who can’t quite make it through their huge orders, they’ll smack their bottoms with a wooden paddle. We are not even kidding! Some of our Purple Travel staff visited last year and saw it with their own eyes.
