The Heart Attack Grill has made headlines with its fatty foods -- meals that regularly weigh in at nearly 10,000 calories. It’s a lifestyle that carries risk -- even the owner says so. The grills’ record-setting Quadruple Bypass burger weighs in over three pounds and has nearly 200 calories per ounce. That works out to more than 9,500 calories.
It seems the barbecue-sauce-smeared boneless pork patty molded into the shape of ribs just can’t stay away -- remember the 2005 “McRib Farewell Tour”? McDonald’s says the McRib is 500 calories (for a 7.3-ounce serving).
