Elevation Burger

>> Monday, October 3, 2011

While eating at burger places for the next iteration of the burger shootout, I happened to hear about a new place that had opened called Elevation Burger. I tried to do some investigation, but I was ultimately unable to decipher if it should have fit in the fast food category or casual dining.
Upon visiting, the restaurant is clearly in the same vein as Five Guys and belongs in the fast food category, so I went ahead and added Elevation Burger to the Fast Food Burger Shootout. For a complete review of Elevation Burgers organic, grass fed, free range double beef burger, please refer to the shootout.

One interesting thing I did notice at Elevation Burger was that they were also serving both vegetarian and vegan burgers. We asked the cashier about the vegan burger and decide to get one to go with the beef burger as well.
The veggie patty is made on premises and seems to be a blend of rice, corn, green and red bell peppers, onions, carrots, and bread crumbs. The patty was surprisingly moist and very flavorful. One impressive part of the veggie patty was that it knew it was not going to simulate beef, so it didn't try to; instead the patty focused on delivering a nice blend of chopped vegetables to give its own unique flavor.
The vegan burger was also surprisingly light on oil and there was virtually no grease.

It was refreshing to see that a burger restaurant can offer vegetarian and vegan burgers that are also compelling in taste and flavor. As the new winner of the Fast Food Burger Shootout, Elevation Burger definitely deserves a kilobit award.
