Heart Attack Grill Spokesman Dies From Heart Attack

Irony alert.

According to the Las Vegas Sun the unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas has died from an apparent heart attack. We’re not sure what “unofficial spokesman” means but  John Alleman suffered a heart attack as he waited at the bus stop in front of the restaurant famous for letting anyone who weighs over 350 pounds eat for free.

Restaurant owner Jon Basso recalled Alleman as a fun-loving man who loved the Heart Attack Grill. The medically themed restaurant is famous for its high-calorie menu that includes a record-breaking 9,982-calorie, 3-pound Quadruple Bypass Burger.

Since the restaurant opened in October 2011, Basso said Alleman would stand outside its doors every day, coaxing customers in. Soon enough, Alleman became a fixture at the restaurant he loved, Basso said.

When he wasn’t working security at an abandoned high-rise construction site on the Strip, Alleman could be found at the grill, talking with customers and eating a burger.

“He never missed a day, even on Christmas,” Basso said. “People just loved him. He connected with people in a real way.”

John Alleman, was the inspiration for the “Patient John” caricature that adorns the Heart Attack Grill’s menu and merchandise.
