Can You Sue The Restaurant?

Or does the name of the meal and the restaurant qualify as fair warning of the risks?  From the February 15, 2012 Daily Mail:

Diner suffers cardiac arrest while eating a Triple Bypass Burger in restaurant called the Heart Attack Grill
  • Paramedics wheel man in his 40s out of restaurant's Las Vegas branch
  • He was eating a 6,000-calorie burger when he suffered a heart attack
  • Triple Bypass Burger contains three slabs of meat, 12 bacon rashes, cheese, red onion, sliced tomato and 'unique special sauce'

If I recall correctly, they make you sign a waiver before you order it.

I never went to med school, but I know that arterial plaque builds kinda slowly. One restaurant meal ain't gonna change the arteries' DefCon status.

I suspect this guy's heart attack has more to do with a history of eating things like the burger than this one particular burger.

The name of the restaurant and the dish are to me obvious warning signs. They should be strong enough to hold up in court.
