I saw this place on the travel channel and when we were in Scottsdale, AZ. we decided to look it up for laughs. There were some huge individuals eating there. I ordered a half pounder and couldn't finish it.
The Quadruple Bypass Burger with 8,000 calories (33 MJ) has been identified as one of the "world's worst junk foods". It consists of four half-pound beef patties, eight slices of American cheese, a whole tomato and half an onion served in a bun coated with lard.
The restaurant was featured on an episode of Extreme Pig-outs on the Travel Channel and on a CBS report with Bill Geist.
according to an interview I heard on NPR radio the restaurant owner started it because all his work to bring awareness to obesity was ignored until he came up with this menu and now everyone is talking about the dangers of high calorie/overweight lifestyles.
