An unofficial spokesman for Las Vegas’s Heart Attack Grill died of a heart attack on Monday morning, making him the second Heart Attack Grill spokesman to die in the last three years. Note: the grill became famous for serving the world’s highest-calorie hamburger, selling candy cigarettes to children, and advertising that their menu might kill you, but it’s “taste worth dying for.”
John Alleman was never officially employed by the heart-stoppingly unhealthy fast food chain, but he did eat there almost every day and frequently stood outside the restaurant inviting passersby to join him in eating one of the Grill’s quadruple-bypass burgers (which clocks in at just under 10,000 calories and has been certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the World’s Most Calorific Burger) and drinking their signature butterfat milkshake (described by the owner as having “so much cream that if I add even a quarter percent more butterfat, it would literally churn to butter”). Alleman’s loyalty to the grill inspired the owner to appoint him an unofficial spokesman, give him his own clothing line, and change the cover of their menu to feature a cartoon of Alleman smiling in a hospital gown.
A statement on the restaurant’s Facebook page announced that the grill will close on the day of Alleman’s funeral to honor the man who was “part of the [Heart Attack Grill] family.”
Tired of the chicken-vs-gay debate? Here, have some pig instead.
This monstrosity, affectionately named the “Wrathchild,” sprung out of maker Reed Rothchild’s desire to eat . . . well, like a pig.
“This sandwich,” he writes, “when being held with two hands, is the closest you can get to eating out of a troth.”
Featuring at least eight strips of bacon, wrapped around four slices of bread, encasing pulled pork, baked beans and shredded cheese on whole slices of American, the Wrathchild has been proven to put even the worthiest of adversaries into three hour comas, followed by 11 hour sh*t shows spent praying to meet your maker.
Best part? When you finally come to, you can treat yourself to Rothchild’s other creation, the pancake-syrup-beef-bacon-egg-and salsa-stuffed “Breakfast Taco Bomb,” because if you tried the Wrathchild in the first place, I’m sure you’re making all kinds of smart decisions.

The Vortex Bar & Grill in Atlanta, Georgia serves up a heart-attack inducing dish they like to call the ‘Super-Stack Heart Attack Burger’, a multi-pound sandwich that sits on a bed of french fries and tater tots that are swimming in a cheesy-cheese goo. The sandwich stands high, with two half-pound sirloin patties stacked inside three grilled cheese sandwiches, two fried eggs, eight slices of American cheese, ten slices of bacon and plenty of mayo on the side. In this particular iteration, the middle grilled cheese sandwich is replaced with a Reuben sandwich, just FYI.
