Heart Attack Bound

Just over a week ago Dallas received what I would assume will soon be a nation wide chain of restaurants called The Heart Attack Grill where the moto is Taste Worth Dying For.  With not a whole lot going on last weekend we decided to trek on out to West End and give it a try.

Upon entry you are greeted by a hostess who grants you access by applying a hospital bracelet on your wrist.

After entering the establishment you are issued your hospital gown to be worn for the duration of your stay.

After looking over the very limited menu items we all decided on getting a Single Bypass Burger, the Flatliner Fries, and a Butterfat Shake.

The shakes are delivered in a do it yourself form where the chocolate is sitting on top and you get the privilege of mixing it up yourself.  I guess you might call it a bonus, but floating on top of this already super rich shake is a pat of butter.

Brady was a big fan of the shakes and fries.  At first taste the shake is absolutely divine, but just over half way through it I was craving something a little less thick.  Unfortunately you can’t get a glass of water.  But you do have the option of buying a bottle.

While waiting for our food I wandered around taking pictures of all the different decorations.  The cooks are all dressed up like surgeons.

By far the best part of the meal was the seasoning of the hamburger.  I believe the seasoning used in the patty was cracked pepper.  Gave a very unique flavor that you don’t normally find in other local restaurants serving burgers.

Overall it was a fun, but not one that I would put on my must do list with out of town guests.  The price of the meal was a bit high for what you actually receive and this themed restaurant wasn’t really an over the top experience.  The fact that people cheered for those who weighed in at over 350 lbs and received a free meal was a little disturbing.  I won’t go as far as saying that I won’t go again or regret that we did it, but definitely not a must do in my book.
