(Scroll down for video) A man who loved “Heart Attack Grill” restaurant, sadly died of a heart attack last week, according to a statement by “Heart Attack Grill”.

The unofficial spokesperson for the “Heart Attack Grill” located in Las Vegas, Nevada, has died of a heart attack. It was the second non paid spokesperson to die in the past two years.

John Alleman, 52, suffered a heart attack while waiting at a bus stop in front of the restaurant last week. He was removed from life support on Monday.

The medically themed restaurant is famous for its huge extra fatty hamburgers, milkshakes and potatoes cooked in pig fat. It uses the slogan: “Taste worth dying for.”

Owner Jon Basso told the local newspaper that Alleman came to the restaurant every day and encouraged passing tourists to try their calorie-laden offerings.
“He never missed a day, even on Christmas,” Basso said. “People loved him. He connected with people in a real way,” he added.

Alleman became the unofficial mascot for the restaurant, whose waiters are dressed as nurses. His caricature as “Patient John” was placed on merchandise and menus.

The heart attack named restaurant, places health warnings for customers all over its restaurant. Diners are given surgical gowns and get to choose from a high calorie menu.
Basso also said that Alleman weighed about 180 pounds and his death showed that heart attacks can happen to anyone.
