I had some friends that went there, they said it was disgusting! And like no good fresh toppings, just the staples. I know that is beside the point, but I mean it doesn't even sound appetizing to me. I like gourmet burger places with choices of cheeses, toppings, sauces, cool stuff like that. This place is a joke and a death wish!

Oh, and the fries were basically at a salad bar type area that you could get unlimited and shovel into your plate!

I think its really truth in advertising. Plenty of food in regular restaurants has just as much fat/saturated fat/sodium as the items here, but here they're being presented as the health risk they are.

What I dislike most about this restaurant is the servers. The girls portrayed there...it just bothers me...

I saw an article about this place a few months ago in a trade magazine. While I don't approve of it, he is pretty honest in his marketing. With the girls, IMO they know what they are getting into when they apply to work there. He is pretty up front about that as well.

yeah, the waitresses are more nauseating than the food.

The weirdest part - if you're over 350 lbs you can eat free.

My husband I saw this on the food channel not long ago. The owner was a registered dietitian I believe who worked in cardiac care. I think it's meant as social satire - a sad comment about the way Americans often eat and take care of their health (and yet a celebration of those foods that many people do love).


My hubby experienced a bit of food-envy as he was a big junk-food junky (he still has to be careful about falling into that trap - because even a big bag of baked chips is still not a single-serving).

I've never been a big fan of greasy food (I was a bulk eater though. I might not have eaten burgers very often, but a salad with too much dressing, cheese, croutons and other fatty-carby toppings that was another story).

My impression of the restaurant is that it's the culinary equivalent of bungee jumping from a bridge and other extreme sports that are dangerous, yet thrilling. The restaurant draws attention to the risks, while making fun of them. As creepy-weird as I found the restaurant, I do think that if ALL restaurants that served too-fatty food were to take this approach, fewer people would eat there regularly - because the risks would be "in your face."

Forcing less healthy food choices to be a more conscious decision, I think would
influence people's choices positivel. I think it's why, McDonald's and other fast food restaurants are fighting tooth and nail against regulation that would require that they post the calorie count of foods on the menu board.

makes me glad I stopped eating red meat years ago, so those type of things aren't tempting.

what's funny about having girls like that working there is none of them probably eat the food there to keep their figures that way.

Someone said a meal can make you gain THREE pounds.

I'd much rather lose those three pounds in 2 weeks, then gain them in one sitting.
