The New Health Care Crisis: Dueling Burger Joints

Heart Stoppers Sports Bar versus Heart Attack Grill:
A bed pan full of Cheese Chest Pain Fries is just one of several medically themed items on the menu here at Heart Stoppers Sports Grill in Delray Beach.

Anyone 350 pounds or over gets a free meal. Owner and Paramedic Iggy Lena came up with the idea.

The challenge burger is three pounds. And those who fail ... well, there's a special place for them here...the morgue!

But not everyone is laughing.

The owners of Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona filed a federal lawsuit.

Their lawyer says Heartstoppers is using many of the medical theme elements that heart attack originated.

Lena's attorney says the two restaurants have separate concepts. The restaurant in Arizona uses high choloric food as a gimmick and here in Delray Beach, they focus on medical themed equipment with something on the menu for everyone, vegetarians, young and old.

The lawsuit was filed last week.
God bless America.
