VIDEO: Heart Attack Grill Revisited – Owner Begins to Pander to PC Food Police

By Debbie Schlussel

Longtime readers may remember when I wrote about the “Heart Attack Grill,” where massive burgers with all the most fattening fixin’s and mega-calories are proudly served. As I noted then, even if it were kosher and I could eat there, I wouldn’t.  I watch what I eat. But I applauded the place because we live in a free country, where you are free to eat what you want, and I can choose not to. The food police and their chief, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Hussein Obama Idi Amin Dada, don’t get to decide for us. I called the restaurant, “the most honest restaurant in America.”

Heart Attack Grill Waitresses & Menu

But, after watching this video, below, on last night’s ABC News “Nightline,” I’m not so sure. I now despise both the smug, lying, jerk owner of the restaurant, and the even smugger, moralizing ABC News reporter. I’d admire the restaurant owner more if he said, hey, it’s a free country, deal with it. You don’t like it, don’t eat here. He does call himself, “Burger Infidel” on his YouTube channel, so that’s a start, but . . . .  (Plus, he could have at least said he felt bad that the obese spokesmodel died.) Instead, he puts on this phony moralizing (about how America needs a wake-up call) and goes along, in a very politically correct way, with the even phonier ABC News guy. PUH-LEEZE. ABC News doesn’t ever use people? Riiiight. Watch and let me know what you think.

Watch the video . . . .

The thing is, the restaurant and its food did not kill this guy. He killed himself. It’s the same with guns and liberals who want to take them away. Criminals and crazy people kill people without reason, not the guns. How sad that the owner won’t say that about his burgers and has regressed from his in-your-face food honesty, because of a snot-nosed ABC News urinalist.

“Full sugar mexican Coke!”


Unlimited lard fries!

Basso used that guy during his life?

No salt, no sugar, no fat, no beef, no pizza, no Chinese food, no fries, NO FREEDOM!

I hate smoking. Allergic to it, and cigarettes are a killer. However, when the government banned television advertisements, printed advertisements, etc. etc., and has tried to tax cigarettes out of the reach of the common man, I told everyone who would listen that the do-gooders would next dictate what we eat. I was laughed at.

No one is laughing now.

A real parade of villains and fools. Much of what Ms. Obama says is correct, just like a stopped clock is correct twice a day. Her arrogance, hypocracy and intolerance are of course very irritating, but the content of what she says about nutrition is basically correct.

Unfortunately those who are fundamentally correct about nutrition are, by and large, wrong about everything else, thus discrediting their views among most conservatives.

Maybe they should do with these restaurants what they do with cigarettes, post warnings on the packages, and in the restaurant. He is a jerk, and was probably as much a jerk when he was a trainer and weight loss manager as he is now.

Let’s see: freedom to kill pre-born babies but not freedom to eat as we’d like.

/Many say it’s a woman’s choice to do what she wants with her body and many would agree. The babies INSIDE our bodies are NOT our bodies, they’re the baby’s bodies. Two hearts beating does not equal one body.

    Exactly – I’ve always felt that if they can abort at 6 weeks, then they can abort at 9 months and there would be no difference if it wasn’t murder. People always argue that abortion isn’t murder, but yet they feel at 9 months it would be – Either it IS murder, or it ISN’T… can’t have it both ways.

I think we should be able to eat what we want. If isn’t the Food Police, next thing you know the Halal Police will tell us we can can no longer have bacon cheeseburgers and pizza.

Then this country will no longer be America!

You can delete my comment since the obnoxious comment to which I was referring was removed.

I like the guy. I like his F-You attitute. I dont hold him responsible in any way. Nobody is forcing red meat America to consume that action.

I’m also strangely comfortable with those corpulent waitress’.

I would not, however, want to be the maintenance staff after that fat-body drops a deuce in the head after slugging one of those #4’s.

Run a story about a heavy guy enjoying wolfing down burgers and end it off with a side note that the guy got exposed to radiation poisoning while serving as a marine in Afghanistan and only has a week to live and watch people’s attitudes change.

Freedom also means freedom to fail – If you (not YOU) can’t stop overeating McDonald’s because you’ve got a hormonal imbalance that FORCES you to eat fast food, and you refuse to strength train to balance your gluttony – heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension are the RESULT. If you want health care, go buy it. If you want money, get a job. If you can’t get a job because you’re “Insert Flaw Here”, start a business and CREATE jobs. Mow lawns, wash cars, paint houses, go to SCHOOL and learn a skill, INVENT something, join the military and take advantage of the opportunities presented for service of the highest honor, in the most advanced military in the history of the world. Have some humble pride in being an American, afforded the opportunities we’ve BLED for on the battlefield. Get off your ass, take responsibility for your own life, and stop living off of the backs of hard working people that owe you NOTHING, ya dig?

I do agree that we have the right to eat whatever we choose. What I find appalling is the grill owner’s cavalier attitude toward the death of his spokesperson. I wonder how much of his own food he actually eats.

We often would hear the expression, “It’s a free country.” We don’t anymore because instinctively we know that it’s no longer a free country but one constrained by political correctness. Obviously the owner of this restaurant was motivated more by profit than ideology. His response should habe been “it’s a free country’, period. Purveyors of alcoholic beverages, cigarettes,drugs (both legal and illegal) know darn well that their products will kill some people. But hey, it’s a free country and that’s what we pride ourselves on.

Hello James Phillips…you’ve hit the nail on the head. It is easy to complain. It is hard to educate yourself, take responsibility for most things, and to pass that knowledge on to your family. Meme Roth, usually on FOX NEWS, always has more than enough to complain about what others eat, but I’d like to see what she would do if she earned $100 per week. I like White Castle burgers, but not every day or even every month! Finally, I don’t believe anyone forces an obese waitress or customer to pitch for any restaurant. Those persons decide if the compensation received is more important than public image, ridicule, or gaining weight. Why do you think anyone would appear on “JACKASS”?

Dennis on March 11, 2011 at 10:43 am

Debbie, just out of curiosity, do you employ a shabbos goy to record “Nightline” and “The Jimmy Kimmel Show” for you on Friday nights? You obviously never miss either of them during the rest of the week.

    Irving, its 2011. Is your VCR still flashing 12:00.

    Stupid quesrion.

    h billy on March 11, 2011 at 10:41 pm

comparing hamburgers and guns is like comparing apples and oranges. you can’t kill another person – or 9 at a morning meet-and-greet outside a Safeway – with a hamburger.
