- The Heartattack Grill – Las Vegas,CA
The Heartattack Grill is one of the only restaurants in the world who proudly exclaim the horrible consequences of eating their own food and even advise against it. Their signature burger “The Quadruple Bypass Burger” contains a whopping 10,000 calories! Complete with nurses outfits, medical imagery and boasts food cooked in “Pure Lard”, it is no surprise some people have actually died from the grill, including two spokespersons. The view looks better on the outside for me…
- The Cave – Richland, MO
