The Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas gave one customer what he paid for when the man suffered a heart attack while dining on a “triple bypass burger.”

“He was having the sweats and shaking,” said “Nurse” Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant when the man in his 40s began experiencing chest pains.

“Doctor” Jon Basso, who opened the restaurant in October, told FOX5 at first he thought it was a joke.

“One of the nurses came back to me and said, ‘Dr. Jon, we’ve got a patient who’s in trouble.'”

The restaurant is known for its fatty food items and promoting bad eating habits. The menu includes items like Flatliner Fries, and Butterfat Milkshakes. One meal could easily contain 8,000 calories.

FOX5 reports that the man is alive and recuperating. His name is still unknown.
