A restaurant famed for his cholesterol laden-menu has lost another loyal customer to a heart attack.
Heart Attack Grill’s unofficial spokesman John Alleman suffered a massive heart attack last week at a bus stop. He was placed on life support at Las Vegas Sunrise Hospital and later taken off on Monday.
Alleman dined at the famous restaurant every day.
“This was a really nice human being, just the greatest guy you would ever want to know,” said restaurant owner Jon Basso.
The Heart Attack Grill prides itself in having monstrous hamburgers, promoting their menu as “taste…worth dying for.”
Customers can choose from a number of uniquely-named selections such as the “Single Bypass,” “Double Bypass, and “Triple Bypass.” The “Quadruple Bypass,” which contains four meat patties weighing three pounds was named the “world’s most calorific burger in the Guinness Book of World Records with 9,982 calories.
The restaurant even takes on the full medical persona with Basso referring to himself as “Doctor Jon.” Customers are viewed as patients and waitresses portray nurses taking patient orders known as “prescriptions.”
Customers weighing over 350-pounds are inviting to eat free only after stepping on a scale in front of the entire restaurant.
“If I set the mark at 300, I would go broke. Everyone in the room is 300,” Basso said. “They need to know right now if they are eating this way they are going to end up in the hospital.”
Basso is fully aware of the dangerous implications of his menu.
“I absolutely think the food I’m serving is unsafe,” he said. “The only way what I’m doing would be immoral would be if I were to market it as healthy by throwing a cute little side salad on the menu. The Heart Attack Grill is the most moral restaurant on the planet Earth because we are absolutely here to make a statement about obesity, about coronary issues, about death and dying and all those things that are prevalent in society.”
Basso said Alleman worked as a night watchman for a skyscraper under construction and would order the same thing every day: the “Single Bypass” burger with Friday and a drink.
“He literally was there every day,” he said. “He was definitely one of the boys and so much one of the boys that half the time it seemed like he was running the place.”

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
