Visitor Tips and News About Heart Attack Grill
R.I.P. Blair River, spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill. He was only 29, and he weighed 575 pounds. Blair was always a big guy, but he became famous when he began promoting the Grill's mega-menu items such as its Quadruple Bypass Burger. Blair reportedly died of pneumonia, not obesity, and not at The Grill itself, where its waitress staff of "naughty nurses" loved cheerful Blair (a regular customer) and would have done what they could to help him.
Today the Heart Attack Grill website is still showing a classic Blair River spot.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 03/04/2011]
I just emailed Heart Attack Grill to see if they were open for business and Dr. Jon got back to me saying they were, and ready to perform a double bypass on me. They're on W Chandler Blvd. in Chandler, Arizona (Southwest corner of Kyrene and Chandler).
I am looking forward to having a quadruple bypass some day (at the Heart Attack Grill that is).[Ryan, 04/08/2009]
Glad to hear Dr. Jon provides employment opportunities to naughty nurses even during these tough economic times. And his latest promotion -- "Anyone over 350 lbs eats for FREE (All Day, Every Day, Unlimited)" -- is genius. The exit wheelchair must be extra sturdy!
I visited the beloved Heart Attack Grill Dec. 30, 2007 to discover the signs were either covered up by tarps or removed, as were the menus and anything that even mentioned the original nurse theme. The mannequin in the corner donning the sensual nurse uniform was instead dressed as a naughty Catholic school girl. Even the "nurses" were wearing French maid outfits and other sexy costumes they could throw together.
When I asked the on-duty waitresses what was going on, it was revealed that this only started a couple days ago. They have a new owner and "Dr. Jon" is no longer there. According to the waitresses, everything's still going to be the same -- "Same food, same T&A, it's just not the Heart Attack Grill any longer."
The burgers are simply referred to as singles, doubles, triples, and quads without the "bypass" attached, and so far the new establishment doesn't have a name yet.
While the burgers seem to taste the same and the fries are still cooked in pure lard, apparently the hospital-themed fast food joint has been toe-tagged for good.[Christine Amarantus, 12/31/2007]
Jan. 2008: Dr. Jon tells us he's simply moving to a better location, which will open in March 2008. The old location is inhabited by a new themed eatery, not affiliated with the Heart Attack Grill.
The Heart Attack Grill in Tempe, Arizona, dresses its waitresses in "naughty nurse" costumes, and advertises menu items such as Bypass Burgers and Flatliner Fries as a "Taste Worth Dying For."... [11/18/2006] Complete News Story
