Heart Attack Grill: Should the 6,000-Calorie Burger Joint Be Shut Down?


A man walks into a restaurant called Heart Attack Grill, orders the 6,000-calorie “Triple Bypass Burger,” and leaves on a stretcher.

It's not so shocking when you think about it, but this true story has sparked plenty of debate: Even though this man may have gotten the heart attack the menu advertised, is he the only one at fault?

In the restaurant's defense, it does offer some words of caution on a sign that reads “Cash only, because you might die before the check clears.” Still, the burger joint’s seemingly comical technique of serving up serious health risks poses weighty ethical concerns.

We want your opinion: Should Heart Attack Grill be shut down?
