Let's agree, free food has always attracted a lot of attention. But, things didn't fall into place for an American restaurant in Las Vegas, US. The restaurant, Heart Attack Grill, gave free food to overweight diners, following which it received a significant backlash on social media. Individuals with a weight of 158 kg or above could walk into the restaurant and enjoy free food. It all happened when videos of customers standing outside Heart Attack Grill - to determine whether they qualified for the offer or not - went viral on TikTok and other social media platforms.

Over the years, the Heart Attack Grill has become quite popular due to their hospital-theme service. The restaurant, which mostly sells fast foods that are exceptionally high in calories and fat, refers to its customers as “patients.” From waiters dressed up as doctors to waitresses attending to customers as nurses, the restaurant is quite popular for its bizarre set-up. Not just that, before placing an order, each customer aka patient changes into their hospital gown and wristband.
