Almost certainly the world's unhealthiest restaurant, it has been in the news often since it opened back in 2005.

I would once, just to try it out as a challenge. I would not make steady diet of that food for sure.

It's a gimmick restaurant. I've known several folks who have eaten there and they said the food was just average. Would I eat there? Probably not, as there are much better places in Las Vegas to get burgers and fries, some them right near the Heart Attack Grill.

No. I like tasty food and portions that I can enjoy in one sitting. Stuffing myself with junk food just for the hell of it is about as appealing as influenza.

Already been a thread about this.

www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/non_aviation/read.main/2420123/



As I said before, looks like a fun place to eat and I'd like to try the place out.

I've seen people rushed to the hospital at much healthier seafood restaurants and seafood allergies can be fatal.

A hamburger for $7.39? Not a chance I'd ever pay that much. I can get a good meal for less. And I can make a much, much better hamburger myself.

No, I wouldn't go near the place. If I want calorific food I know where to get it, but a place that openly celebrates it? No way. I know it's a gimmick, but it's bad taste. Keeling over from a heart attack is no joke.

Quoting L0VE2FLY (Thread starter):

I would say not.

The use of tallow and lard has been on the increase in the US especially since high end restaurants have rediscovered their use to produce a high quality products. The use of lard is especially prevalent in Europe and the UK. (They had a severe lard shortage in the UK in 2006 due to trade agreements)

I noticed "flatliner fries" cooked in lard on the menu. Even McD's fries were cooked in tallow until the 90's now they are all vegetable oil with flavoring to mimic the previous taste, and you thought it was the potato.

Would I eat there? Sure, but I would not make a habit of it.

I went to a spin-off place at 44th St & Thomas in Phoenix called 'The Grill Next Door' - it was ok but the sexism was too much. I drove by there at Christmas and it has closed down unsurprisingly.

That is true. Since beef tallow is heavier, it doesn't penetrate the french fries as much and only cooks the outer skin. The hydrogenated vegetable oil saturates the fries and as a result is unhealthier.

1988 was the year they made the switch.
93% beef tallow, 7% sunflower seed oil.

No. No, I would not eat there. Period.

I ate at Five Guys once. Never again. Too much grease and too much bacon. My stomach hurt after eating just a simple burger at Five Guys. I can't even imagine what would happen to me at this place! Give me Subway 6" turkey melt any day!

With all the hoopla about the Subway foot long being short on the measure and a 6" being half, then you are getting ripped off.
You should demand some of your money back for what you were shorted and quit giving the big corporations a hand out.

I would try this place just one time. I don't think I could get past a single bypass burger & fries. The "theme" of this restaurant would play well with those who have a nurse or medical fetish.

I haven't been to a hamburger place in probably just under two years. I switched over to Subway and Quizno's instead. Have I lost any weight? Maybe a few pounds, but I haven't gained any either.

Ew.

I worked at Subway for almost 4 years starting in high school. About the only thing good for you there is some of the vegetables. Everything else is processed and loaded with preservatives and salt.

I can tell you do not live in Rhode Island. $9.99-10.99-11.99,12.99, you name it where I live. This is at full service restaurants of course. Not fast food chains. I eat at those also, not very often. My favorite sandwich, a Hamburger.

A lot of restaurants may use tallow and lard but they certainly don't work as hard as this place to make your meal as unhealthy as possible.

That's the source of the artificial taste in fast foods including Subway, if you want real healthy food, I'm afraid your only option is to make it yourself.

$9.99~12.99 is pretty reasonable for full service restaurants.

Same here. A lot of unhealthy meals look and taste good, but not this burger...

Get over yourselves guys. Obviously this is a theme restaurant and apparently many of you are not the target audience. No customer is expected to eat here everyday and eating here once in a blue moon won't kill you. I like the fact that they go against the grain of your typical cliche, urban metrosexual, fusion style restaurant that pretends to be healthy but only offer smarmy service and high prices. That seems to be trendy at the moment.

I look forward to visiting this place.
