Run by Jon Basso, The Heart Attack Grill has been known as “A taste worth dying for” But is it really? If they were to sell their burgers in Glen Innes nearly all the people in this community would be overweight. Some of these people could die. Here are three reasons why I don’t think that The Heart Attack Grill should be allowed to operate.
Reason 1: At their restaurant they sell Butter Cream Milkshakes, Fries and Fatty Burgers. To cook the food they use a lot of lard (lard is animal fat).
Evidence: If you weigh 350 pounds or more Jon Basso will give you free food.
Reason 2: This food can kill! Jon Basso warns his customers, if you eat this food, it may kill you, but he will still provide it for you if you want it. He also makes people think that being overweight is a good thing, when it clearly is not.
Evidence: Weighing at more than 500 pounds, his friend/spokesmodel Blair, died from pneumonia.
Reason 3: Sizes! The meals that are served at this restaurant are unbelievably big. Filled with fat they also tend to serve an unlimited amount of huge burgers, fries and milkshakes.
Evidence: Some burgers they sell are 4 patties high.
Although he’s selling all this fatty food, Jon Basso thinks that this will better the community’s food choices and will help out people to realize that they are eating terribly unhealthy food. But does that stop overweight customers from eating there?
Overall, I think you know that I would not like this restaurant to operate in Glen Innes at all. That’s my thought - but what about you???
