FUN VIDEO: The Most Honest Restaurant in America

By Debbie Schlussel
An 8,000-calorie burger, skank waitresses in sleazy, far-too-revealing “uniforms”–this restaurant is a libertarian fat guy’s dream. The end is funny. I like that this place deliberately bucks the food police. But after seeing this food, I’m glad I keep kosher. Even if I didn’t, eeuuww–you’d never catch me at “The Heart Attack Grill.”

Debbie, my question here is where this guy found good looking women willing to waitress for a bunch of slobs. The food isn’t even expensive. Also, if we date I’ll need you to dress up just like that and serve me healthy snacks and diet coke while I watch sports on TV.

Thank you Debbie, I will be going there next time I am in Phoenix. Chandler isn’t too far away. Went to the Tilted Kilt. Nice place for beer and happy hour. That was a smoking hot place. Do you really think we go to Hooters for the wings ­čśë
If you ever get a burger fix Debbie, get an In and Out Burger. West Coast franchise. They are awesome. People will want 20 minutes in drive thru for them.
One of the funniest places I ever went to was a sub-shop in Broward County, FL across from Subway. Their slogan was “We made Jared Fat”

This guy is a braver Andy Rooney. Sounds just like him. Damn I could go for a cheese burger right NOW! I think Culvers is open.

The Burgers look good. The nurses look great!

Well, just another form of national suicide. Just like we are not trying very hard to fight against terrorists — can’t question them effectively, keep them out of the country, etc., this is just one more way we are trying to kill ourselves. At least this way will be a little more fun.

I like poking fun at the food police, but I would never eat like that-see how the customers looked

If Debbie didn’t keep kosher, she would say you’d have the right to eat a mega-size burger if you want. The point is that what to eat and drink should be your decision, not the government’s or some food police. As for Jews, they are subject to a Higher Authority and the reason Debbie DOES keep kosher is because she has assumed the “yoke of heaven” voluntarily. Its not something that imposed by a fiat but an act of moral obligation taken FREELY by the individual. Freedom means being able to also make the right choice or we are not truly free as human beings at all.

There’s kosher food that will kill you just as easily as the trief will. Ever see the chemical ingredients in kosher food? Especially the parve stuff? That’s why I stick to vegeburgers,pita and hummus… And I have my kosher potato chips -okay so I’m not perfect… McTreifs in Israel – okay its Mehadrin kosher but too much of a good thing can be not so good.

If I didn’t keep kosher, I would fly out there just to taste that delicious looking piece of meat. You know what they say; the less healthy, the tastier the food. This thing must be phenomenal. I would probably walk back home though, just to burn it off.

With apologies to Michelle, for the first time in my life, I am proud to be an American.

Thanks, Debbie, that’s an excellent clip; Bill Geist is great, always funny. We are what we eat and it’s obviously a personal choice. Exactly. Health care is OUR own personal responsibility, not the government’s. If we choose to eat like the clip shows we better not crawl to the medical profession expecting a magic pill to make it all better so we can go back to the Heart Attack Grill for dinner. But that’s exactly what happens all across the country. Personal responsibility. I, indeed, remember how great those kinds of burgers and fries taste. Got fat that way. Had to face reality as a fat teenager in the early 60s. Lost it. Ain’t goin’ back. Like being healthy. Gonna stay that way. Fanatic? No. Just am careful what I eat. The American Lifestyle is what’s been killing us for generations. Yes, it’s all personal choice. If you want to eat it, go for it. Enjoy. Yes, those are yummy looking “nurses”, you betcha. Great looking…um, buns! Worth goin’ in for at least a single decker burger and fries. Just once…

I could handle a Single Bypass but $7.39 is a little steep for a burger.
Yum Yum
PS=I usually eat at one of the In-N-Out Burgers out here in Mexifornia where $1.90 gets you a cheese burger.
If you are really brave get a Fries: ├ČAnimal Style├«
Here is their “secret Menu” that only In-N-Out regulars know about:
