New Yorkers can still order up an instant heart attack.

The Second Avenue Deli won a court fight with a Las Vegas-based burger joint Friday in a battle over the names of their gut-busting foods. The New York deli's sandwich called "instant heart attack," is made of sliced pastrami and fried potato latkes and it costs $24.95.
 
The burger chain Heart Attack Grill opened for business in 2005 and sued the deli for trademark infringement. A federal judge in New York sided with the deli. Deli owner Jack Lebewohl tells the Daily News that he's delighted by the ruling.
 
The Second Avenue Deli is also allowed to sell another sandwich called the "triple bypass." Lebewohl says it includes "everything but the kitchen sink."
