Would I eat at the Heart Attack Grill? Probably not, except maybe out of some morbid curiosity and then I certainly wouldn’t order the Triple Bypass Burger. I’m more of a quality v quantity type of guy. But then, if this is something that turns your crank, go for it, have fun.
There are many calls from politicians, physicians, food activists and vegetarian organizations to force the Heart Attack Grill to close because of this incident. I haven’t actually seen anything form PETA –surprising.
Instead of getting all indignant about the Heart Attack Grill which is catering to a very specific idiot demographic, think about the bigger picture. How it is that you can actually sell that much meat for that amount of cost? Plus, think about the under the table cheep Latin labour, in the kitchen, putting the whole thing together. What’s the mark-up on the Triple Bypass Burger? In the end, Mister Heart Attack needs to make some money? Industrialized, mechanically separated, mystery meat at its best. Wouldn’t you rather pay $11.10 for a smaller (much smaller) naturally raised killer tasting beef burger? And maybe add a couple of slices of bacon for $2.77 from a pig naturally and humanely raised? All made by someone in the kitchen making a living wage? I would, but that’s just me, the hamburger idealist.
