Elevation Burger

Until I actually ate the best burger ever, I was having trouble with the name—Elevation. No punch—not even memorable. But here’s the hook: Elevation Burger is a fast-food restaurant, with branches in 7 states, with an elevated vision of organic, grass-fed, free-range, antibiotic & pesticide free beef. Their vegetables and produce are fresh. You can watch them cut the potatoes for French fries which are prepared in heart-healthier olive oil, also to perfection.

The décor is as basic as you can get—most McDonald’s are a great deal fancier. But they have an eco sensibility. They use paper and cardboard and they separate their trash. The second time I ate there, I chose the Half the Guilt Burger, made with 1 beef patty and 1 veggie burger. The veggie burger almost ruined the experience for me. But I have a feeling I would have loved it solo. I should have known better than to try to reduce my guilt! I don’t put ketchup on my burger but I can vouch for the delicious caramelized onions, one of many toppings included free of charge.

Although I didn’t sample these, you can also get a salad as well as thick shakes & malts.

Elevation Burger is at the undistinguished location of 14th Street, just West of 6th Avenue, which may account, in part, for the relatively bargain prices (for such excellence!). Burgers start at $4.49 and rise to $6.89 for a double patty with real cheddar cheese. I bet their $3.50 grilled cheese sandwich is also a winner.

    Elevation Burger is for sure the best burger you can get out. I go there at least once a week. I also cook and eat grass fed beef at home. If you want to try to make your own burger I would suggest ordering your grass fed beef from La Cense Beef. I order all of my grass fed beef from them. They are a grass fed ranch located in Montana and you can order online and they will deliver it to you. Their website is also great, filled with lots of information, recipes, and tips on cooking grass fed beef.
