Another diner has been wheeled out of Las Vegas’ Heart Attack Grill on a stretcher.

A female customer in her mid 40s fell to the floor Saturday night while eating a “double bypass burger,” drinking a margarita and smoking cigarettes, Heart Attack Grill owner “Doctor” Jon Basso told news outlets.

The woman was carted off to a hospital in an ambulance within five minutes of the medical event and she was expected to be okay, Basso told local TV station Fox 5.

While the cause of her collapse was unclear, it was the second time in two months that a customer had to be hospitalized while dining at the Sin City restaurant, which is infamous for its supersized embrace of unhealthy eating habits.

Back in February, a Heart Attack Grill customer suffered an actual heart attack while chomping down on a 3.5-pound "Triple Bypass Burger," ABC News reported.

Other fare doled out by waitresses dressed in skimpy nurses outfits at the restaurant include a 9,983-calorie “Quadruple Bypass Burger,” "Flatliner Fries" and "Butterfat Milkshakes," according to Fox 5.

The restaurant’s website highlights a sign hoisted outside the establishment that advertises customers who weigh more than 350 pounds eat free.

Heart Attack Grill Owner Jon Basso said his food was far from the only factor that may have led to the collapse of his latest customer.

“I would say that this woman had given her body every single thing it would handle and the body finally gave out,” he told Fox 5.
