Heart Attack Grill sues Florida operator

When it comes to tipping the scales of justice, burger restaurants in Arizona and Florida will be facing off in court soon. Jon Basso, the owner of Heart Attack Grill in Chandler, Arizona, has filed suit in federal court against Heart Stoppers Sports Grill, which opened in Delray Beach, Florida, in December. Basso claims the Florida restaurant stole his concept.

The Arizona Heart Attack Grill offers such items as the "Quadruple Bypass Burger".
Heart Stoppers offers a “Heart Stopper 3-pound Killer” burger for $21.99. Both concepts feature waitresses dressed as nurses.
No court dates have been set.
