An unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas collapsed outside the restaurant Sunday and died of — you guessed it — a heart attack.

John Alleman, 52, greeted customers every day as they walked into the restaurant whose slogan says it has a “taste worth dying for,” and whose signature dish is the Quadruple Bypass Burger weighing in at three pounds and 10,000-calories. (RELATED: Man suffers heart attack at Heart Attack Grill)

Alleman collapsed at a bus stop in front of the restaurant. He was rushed to the hospital but was taken off life support Monday afternoon, the Las Vegas Sun reports. 

“The grill is where you can be yourself. We accept people as they are,” restaurant owner Jon Basso told the Sun. “[Alleman’s death] isn’t going to stop us from what we’re doing. People have got to live their lives.”

Heart Attack Grill’s menu boasts items such as “Flatliner Fries” and single, double, triple and quadruple bypass burgers.

In 2012, two Heart Attack Grill customers had heart attacks at the restaurant. In 2011, another “unofficial spokesman” died of pneumonia. (RELATED: Heart Attack Grill lives up to its name)
