The Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas lived up to its name this past weekend when a customer suffered cardiac arrest while eating the Triple Bypass Burger.

Owner Jon Basso, who dresses as a doctor, thought the waitress was joking when she told him a man in his 40s was experiencing chest pains while consuming the signature 6,000-calorie burger Saturday, Las Vegas TV station KVVU reported.

Paramedics rushed the man to the hospital, and he is now recovering.

The Heart Attack Grill is no stranger to controversy, with slogans like, "Taste worth dying for!" and a house policy that allows diners weighing more than 350 pounds to eat for free, according to KVVU.
