    Another ‘Heart Attack Grill’ customer collapses while eating ‘bypass burger’

    No one can accuse The Heart Attack Grill of false advertising.

    A woman collapsed into unconsciousness at the Las Vegas restaurant while eating a "double bypass burger," drinking a margarita and smoking a cigarette.

    The unnamed customer was the second in just over two months to collapse at the restaurant while eating one of the famed burgers named after various forms of cardiac arrest. Back in February, another customer was caught on video being carted out by paramedics after suffering a heart attack while eating a "quadruple bypass" burger.

    The Heart Attack Grill's owner Jon Basso tells ABC News that the woman is currently recovering in the hospital. Basso told ABC that he himself has eaten at least one single bypass burger each day since his restaurant first opened seven years ago.

    "It's a lifestyle issue," Basso said. "We attract the avant-garde of lifestyle seekers."

    You would have to be in bad health to get a heart attack while eating a burger.

    With that said I don't think I could finish that thing.

    I love the pic of the waitress dressed in a black nurses outfit.

    Hilarious.

    They probably ban you after awhile. But have no idea. I actually knew a guy that worked with my dad years ago that although he was a skinny guy he had the proverbial hollow leg. He would go to all you can eat places and just clean them out. After awhile they just banned him from the restaurants.

    This happened at a Chinese buffet here in Nashville a few years ago. This guy was going in and he ate nothing but the fresh shrimp. He ordered a glass of water and nothing else. He would just eat trip after trip after trip. And he did this like three times a week. finally they banned him from the place. He sued them and he won his case because there was no limits that were made clear to him on the advertising or when he went in.

    Never understood banning people from free meals or all you can eat places. Unless the offer comes with a lmitation of some sort, you just have to deal with people who can eat a lot.

    I'd seriously rather eat a burger from sonic than the heart attack grill. That place is disgusting....and what kind of business, in 2012, only accepts CASH? FAIL on so many levels.

    Great advertisement for that place. Accuracy unlike any seen in this day and age.

    Found a hood fish place recently in Ft. Worth that only accepts cash.

    But the fish is so delicious, I don't even care. Just have to make sure I have cash on hand when I go.

    There's a BBQ place near here that only accepts cash, too. They have been around forever, have great prices and great food so people don't really care.

    Some of the best dives only accept cash. There are many here in my town too. What is the problem carrying a 20$ bill around in your pocket?

    Yeah I don't get that...

    why do you feel you have to worry if a place accepts cash only? How they run their business is their right.

    As consumers we have just as much right not to dine there.

    There isn't one. This restaurant used to be up in Tempe. Fries are all you can eat for everyone, and if you are over 350 you eat free.

    They call them flatliner fries.

    The waitresses dress up in really skimpy nurses outfits and they take your blood pressure after you are done eating.

    Anyone who eats a triple or quadruple bypass burger is taken back to their car in a wheelchair.

    It is total gimmick place.

    Here in Tucson Greasy Tony's that was featured in the movie "Revenge of the Nerds" was cash only.

    Another great dive place here Pat's Chili Dogs...cash only.

    People don't complain because the food is great.
