The front of their menu says “Over consumption of our food will definitely lead to obesity, at which point you should consult a physician before starting an exercise program.” At least they’re upfront about it.
Heart Stoppers Sports Grill has a hospital theme (hospital gear everywhere, waitresses dressed as scantily clad nurses). Yes, we’ve seen something similar (Heart Attack Grill) before but there are a whole bunch of clever ideas throughout which I really liked. I was with my friend Erik and we ordered a few appetizers or as their menu refers to them, Artery Cloggers. We had the Chili Chest Pain Fries (love this name), Sweet Potato Fries (with a Marshmallow dipping sauce) and the Brewzed and Battered Onion Rings. The Fries were crispy, the Chili was tasty and we both liked them. Erik isn’t a big fan of Chili and he was digging them.
The Sweet Potato Fries were fresh cut and we loved them.
The Onion Rings were great as was the dipping sauce (some Mayo mix with spice).
I forgot to mention the Chili Chest Pain Fries and the Brewzed and Battered Onion Rings were served in bedpans.
So, what else did we get? We decided to share (something I don’t do often) The Heart Attacker (a 1/2 pound Burger) and the 1/2 lb. Ripper (a big-time 14-inch long dog, Hebrew National by the way). The main reason I don’t like to share is I end up having to negotiate for toppings.
We ordered The Ripper naked because we couldn’t come to an agreement. The rest went rather smoothly. We agreed upon Mayo, Cheddar Cheese, Bacon and an Egg for the Heart Attacker. All the toppings on the Heart Attacker including the bun (which was lightly toasted with a little bit of butter) were spot on. It was good, better than good and I look forward to trying their Triple A (1/2 lb stuffed with cheese). I forgot to mention that there are 30 toppings that can be added to your burger at no extra charge.
I just remembered we had also ordered 10 “Killer Wings”. The Flatliner Wings were tasty and had some good heat.
The Ripper was probably the best thing I had and I only added mustard to it. Finally, when our bill came we were surprised to be given a first aid box until we looked inside.
I found eating at Heart Stoppers an enjoyable experience.
The Heart Stopper Challenge:
Want to get your pic on the Wall of Fame at Heart Stoppers in Delray Beach? You can enter The Heart Stopper Challenge at any time. All you have to do is eat their 3lb Burger & Fries and beat the best existing time. You’ll replace the current champ on the wall, if not your picture may end up in their City Morgue. When we were about to leave 2 guys were doing the Heart Stopper Challenge.
It’s really a spectacle when they wheel out the burgers on a cart attached to an IV bag. The table you sit at has a giant light (operating room style) on you with a defibrillator right next to you (and you have the option to sit in a wheelchair). I honestly don’t know if those guys completed the challenge but there was another guy lining up to go next. A friend of mine was there the next day and mentioned that someone had just taken over the new record. It now stands at 31 minutes. Good luck to everyone who tries it.
