Top Burgers in South Florida – Elevation Burger

A friend of mine told me about this place that open just 2 weeks ago “near” where I work, So I decided to research a little bit before going there. From their website they claim it is a organic beef, green restaurant which I gravitate towards to, they do not publish their nutrition fact online neither provide them on their restaurant.

Arrived around noon, some people where waiting in line and some for their food on the tables, after looking at the menu I noticed they copied Five Guys approach for small vs large burgers, just add a patty and problem solved, personally I don’t like this approach so that is why I prefer to eat 2 smaller burgers than one big one.

They have shakes, fries, 2 types of salads, cookies and around 8 types of burgers, interesting enough the only thing they promote as organic is the beef, what about organic tomatoes and ketchup ? organic milk / ice cream for the shakes ? organic potatoes ? if “Ingredients really matter” as they claim, where is the organic lettuce ? Their slogan is all over the place, also the facts about organic USDA certified organic beef, I can not think of a good reason why they do not promote their other ingredients as organic, so the only answer would be they are not …

If you think about the economics of making a $4 burger with all organic ingredients the numbers are not there, but then their whole concept is absurd, it is like driving a Prius to work and a Hummer during weekends.

The Good:

– Clean, comfortable, good looking for a “fast food” restaurant

The Bad:

– Slow, the line, the food was slow
– I think not all of their ingredients are organic, just the beef.

The Burger:

I ordered 2 cheese burgers with tomatoes and raw onions, ketchup and mustard, the shake was delivered 2 or 3 minutes after we paid, the burgers arrived 3 or 4 minutes after that with the meals of all my friends in a aluminum tray, I did not order fries for myself but had the chance to try them, they are supposed to be fried on olive oil, I’m guessing trying to make them healthier on paper.

The price is consistent with an upscale fast food place, around $10 ~ $12 per person
