I can picture the entire cast of pawn stars being regulars.
soundofhumility357 karma2013-10-15 05:08:56 UTC
I never saw them in there. But, it would not be surprising, considering the fact that their pawn shop is located less than a mile away.

What's the employee cartoon for?
soundofhumility118 karma2013-10-15 13:44:52 UTC
Merchandise. They would sell T-shirts, coffee mugs, canvas bags, etc. With your cartoon picture on it.
batmanisavampire284 karma2013-10-15 04:54:33 UTC
Did you ever have people come in just to say how gross and disgusting the restaurant is?
soundofhumility558 karma2013-10-15 04:58:10 UTC
All the time! People would always talk down to us employees as well, because 1. Our uniforms were provocative, therefore in their minds we were all brainless and 2. How we are the immoral ones for serving them that food. Because it's not like people have freedom of choice when it comes to their eating habits.
Mr_Blackwolf240 karma2013-10-15 03:54:49 UTC
Did any non-obese 350-pound people ever come into the restaurant to eat for free? eg. bodybuilders, powerlifters etc? (highly unlikely I know)
soundofhumility220 karma2013-10-15 04:00:55 UTC
I never saw one, not while I was working atleast.
IhaveSomeQuestions56236 karma2013-10-15 03:46:47 UTC
1) Would the waitresses make good money?
2) How would you determine if someone was over 500 pounds?
3) Was it ever creepy having to spank people?
4) How much money did you make?
5) Was there a limit on how much food in a day the people who get free ones could order?

taypat136 karma2013-10-15 05:05:03 UTC
Selling menu's? Can you explain further?
soundofhumility259 karma2013-10-15 05:09:47 UTC
For a dollar a piece, we sold paper menu's. Just for a novelty, or proof that a place like that exists. It's how the hostesses got tips.
taypat115 karma2013-10-15 05:19:50 UTC
So of the $1, how much commission did you get?
soundofhumility171 karma2013-10-15 05:23:45 UTC
The whole amount. Usually there's two hosts working at the same time. One will seat the customers, and the other will put the hospital gowns and bracelet on the guest. If we sold a menu, we would put it together in a pool and then divide it amongst ourselves when we're leaving our shift. Trust was important, because you never knew if who you were working with would pocket the money.
ReadyAndLubed202 karma2013-10-15 05:38:00 UTC
Is it like a legit spanking or a light tapping? Also is in front of everyone in the restaurant?
soundofhumility322 karma2013-10-15 05:42:32 UTC
It depended on who was doing spanking. Some girls were rough and put all their strength into it. I was a weakling and would lightly tap, because I also have terrible coordination and was scared I would miss and actually hurt someone. Also, we'd go lighter on females.
Alma_Negra102 karma2013-10-15 03:21:55 UTC
Fwiw, what is the healthiest dish on the menu..? I mean, relative to what is served there.
soundofhumility204 karma2013-10-15 03:29:02 UTC
Here's the whole menu:
Single Bypass Burger 2,000 calories. 5 bacon slices
Double Bypass 4,000 calories. 10 bacon slices
Triple Bypass 6,000 calories. 15 bacon slices
And Quadruple 8,000 calories. 1 whole tomato, onion and 20 slices of bacon.
Flatliner Fries (fried in lard)
Butterfat Milk Shakes (with a real stick of butter)
and Chille Cheese Fries
Plus malt liquor, and an array of candy flavored alcoholic drinks.
The onions are so carmilized that they are basically pure sugar.
Toddler_Souffle126 karma2013-10-15 05:47:05 UTC
What kind of malt liquor?
soundofhumility123 karma2013-10-15 05:49:16 UTC
Tall cans of Old English, Mickeys, stuff like that. I can't remember too well.
Poisoninthewound96 karma2013-10-15 04:40:22 UTC
Lol, I actually was checking out the heart attack grill website and saw this AMA on it...
Anyway, how much free food does a *< 350 pounder get to eat?
soundofhumility172 karma2013-10-15 04:47:24 UTC
That sucks, I don't want this on their site... Anyways, they can have as many single bypass burgers as they want.
name_with_a_y54 karma2013-10-15 08:33:07 UTC
They posted it because you tweeted about it. They automatically grab all Twitter posts that include their name and post it on their website.
soundofhumility176 karma2013-10-15 13:09:40 UTC
I don't tweet..
IRideVelociraptors34 karma2013-10-15 05:13:07 UTC
How many do they eat on average?
soundofhumility141 karma2013-10-15 05:18:06 UTC
Usually, they can't finish one. It's strange, but the big guys can't finish the big burgers. Everytime someone would finish the Quadruple Bypass, it was always a young, thin guy.
WhatItDoCuz82 karma2013-10-15 05:27:00 UTC
Does this place actually have regulars? Like 350lb people that come in every day and eat unlimited for?
soundofhumility163 karma2013-10-15 05:32:09 UTC
Yep! We'd get a few locals who would come in frequently to take advantage of the free meal. Most of them will come in, not get a drink, and not leave a tip. So that they could literally have a free meal.
WhatItDoCuz107 karma2013-10-15 05:36:10 UTC
Im sorry if this offends, but this place sounds like the embodiment of cancer
soundofhumility164 karma2013-10-15 05:37:54 UTC
Not offensive at all. The food is disgusting.
Xcrucia82 karma2013-10-15 04:39:06 UTC
I stayed at the Golden Nugget last year, right down the street(sidewalk?) but forgot to stop by and gorge myself. Do the shakes taste like butter? Can't imagine a buttery taste being that good.
soundofhumility122 karma2013-10-15 04:43:49 UTC
In my opinion, the shakes are pretty gross. They're too rich, and so thick you need a spoon.
NutWizard75 karma2013-10-15 03:33:51 UTC
ok last question where did you guys come up with the menu? like did you just have a recipe for the 9000 calorie burger or did the owner have them all?
soundofhumility133 karma2013-10-15 03:39:37 UTC
I asked Jon, the owner that once. He used to be a nutritionist, and had the philosophy that about excess and moderation (I wish I could remember who it was that he quoted, but this was so long ago) and anyways he just came up with the concept. I'm pretty sure it started out as a minor idea, then just blew up with the media attention, and then he decided to move the location to Vegas.
BlindTrooper109 karma2013-10-15 04:16:54 UTC
“Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks.”
This one? It's from Robert A. Heinlein, one of my favorite authors :)
soundofhumility59 karma2013-10-15 04:21:59 UTC
That's a great line, and so specific! But, no that's not the one he was talking about :/

"The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom." William Blake
soundofhumility34 karma2013-10-15 13:03:54 UTC
The marriage of heaven and hell. Love that one too. But, it's also not what he was talking about.
dogmatic00151 karma2013-10-15 14:43:53 UTC
Maybe the Oscar Wilde quote: "Everything in moderation, including moderation."

What was your favorite memory?
soundofhumility164 karma2013-10-15 03:31:28 UTC
I loved anything that had to do with filming. Every week there would be a crew from some documentary type show coming in. Those were always fun, just because I'm into production and I like seeing how things like that worked.
EljerGoldwater61 karma2013-10-15 12:50:41 UTC
How bad were the bathrooms in this place? Were you constantly having to go in and unclog the toilets?
soundofhumility161 karma2013-10-15 13:02:49 UTC
The bathrooms are pretty funny. In the mens urinal, they have painted cartoons on the wall of nurses making fun of a small penis size.
PounderMcNasty57 karma2013-10-15 03:11:50 UTC
How fat was the fattest person that ate there?
soundofhumility117 karma2013-10-15 03:19:34 UTC
That's tough, there was a guy over 700 pounds once. But, usually the range is between 350-400. Which, after working there for so long, didn't even seem too heavy.
NutWizard61 karma2013-10-15 03:34:48 UTC
did you ever date anyone you met there? like a 400 lb man?
soundofhumility85 karma2013-10-15 03:37:19 UTC
thestone953 karma2013-10-15 05:01:07 UTC
Why did you start working there in the first place? The business model?
soundofhumility115 karma2013-10-15 05:05:42 UTC
It was a job. Which in Las Vegas, is actually pretty hard to find one with decent pay. I had no specific interest in working there particularly, it just sort of happened.
ACDRetirementHome50 karma2013-10-15 07:47:23 UTC
Do people ever come in groups and share a single one of those 9000 calorie burgers?
soundofhumility74 karma2013-10-15 13:11:08 UTC
You're not aloud to share. Because if that was the case, a whole family would share one burger and they wouldn't purchase anything else.
malcontented47 karma2013-10-15 03:20:49 UTC
soundofhumility104 karma2013-10-15 03:26:06 UTC
He wasn't the CEO. He was a morbidly-obese spokes person for the restaurant. He died a few years ago at their first location in Chandler, Arizona. Before the owner moved the restaurant to Vegas.
mtbaird568737 karma2013-10-15 04:39:30 UTC
How did the milkshake taste? I love milkshakes but I dunno if I could do one with a full stick of butter.
soundofhumility55 karma2013-10-15 04:46:31 UTC
They're really thick. Ridiculously rich and filling. I personally think they're gross. But to each his own.
MAINO31 karma2013-10-15 04:01:40 UTC
what type of cheese do you guy use the most?
soundofhumility68 karma2013-10-15 04:07:02 UTC
The only kind they have cheddar. It was the overly processed-almost-plastic synthetic cheese.
pman55515 karma2013-10-15 12:38:59 UTC
Forgetting about the terribly unhealthiness of the food and the whole culture of the restaurant, how did it taste? Was it really good?
soundofhumility33 karma2013-10-15 13:05:12 UTC
People actually like it! Alot of folks come to Vegas to try In-N-Out, and lot of people say it's comparable. I disagree.
lostpatrol1 karma2013-10-15 12:40:18 UTC
I fail to see what is so wrong about this place. Meat is not unhealthy, and neither is fat. The fries and the coke seems more unhealthy than a burger. As long as you regular diet is within a certain range, eating 8k calories one day won't affect you.
soundofhumility1 karma2013-10-15 13:04:28 UTC
The ingredients are pure lard, fat, grease, and salt.
Killersingh1 karma2013-10-15 11:28:23 UTC
I drove by this place when I was in Vegas last year. I was disgusted by how they were proud of having such high caloric burgers. Where do you work now? Thanks!
soundofhumility1 karma2013-10-15 13:08:02 UTC
I'm still going to UNLV and work as a server in a restaurant.
MrFoxFoster1 karma2013-10-15 08:11:53 UTC
Have you ever suggested to not serve a customer a burger because you knew it would be fatal? Ignore my grammer.... :s
soundofhumility3 karma2013-10-15 13:10:07 UTC
I wish we could, but that would defeat the whole purpose. Plus, that's discrimination.
Feltzinclasp5-4 karma2013-10-15 03:15:42 UTC
Can you explain how the FDA allows you to operate? I mean.. you're basically rewarding people for being obese.
soundofhumility58 karma2013-10-15 03:23:26 UTC
As long as a restaurant is clean, I don't think the FDA has any control on the calorific contents of the food that restaurant is serving. If you think about it, many other establishments sell disgusting food in high fat content. Heart Attack Grill is just the first place to admit it.

What would happen if an immovable object were to be struck by an unstoppable force
soundofhumility8 karma2013-10-15 04:33:34 UTC
It would, inevitably move, I suppose.
