[PHX] Heart Attack Grill ... Anyone over 350 lbs eats for free all day long.

ipsedixit Mar 9, 2009 11:19 PM

According to Heart Attack Grill website, if you weigh 350 pounds or more, you can eat for free all day long.

Has this always been the case, or is this something new?

I find this simultaneously revolting and in bad taste (no pun intended).

    Bad taste or not the video on their site is pretty amusing.

      This restaurant is, in all, revolting and full of bad taste.

        I beg to differ... I hear the food tastes great... not bad. I hear this restaurant even got Lindsey Lohan to keep a meal down.

        It's a couple months old, at least. For something you find in bad taste, it's awfully nice of you to provide them some free advertising. That's exactly why the guy who owns the place is doing the promotion. I'd rather hear that the burgers are as good as they were when the place first opened.

          This guy is a marketing genius for free advertising.....He has a link(on Today's Pick) on the Home Page of <msn.com> and he has received two free four plus minutes segments on both CBS and ABC.

            Heart Attack Grill came about as a result of the owner's marketing thesis. He was going to do personal training, but noticed that people were more interested in their diet cheat day than the diet itself.

          That's disgusting, and pretty sad. I guess they're trying to live up to their name.

            The restaurant should carry lots of liability insurance.
