Fast Food innovation
You'll be happiest at Elevation Burger if you stop counting calories, accept that premium ingredients cost more, and then treat yourself to a generous pile of toasty fries, always cooked to order. One friendly worker explained there's no heat lamp or microwave in the building, and several alluded to Elevation's secret process for getting olive oil hot enough for deep frying. The free house-made balsamic vinegar dressing is great for dipping, but the touted "Elevation Sauce" is standard Thousand Island. If you order a salad (fresh but not particularly exciting), you'll have several more dressings to choose from.
Super-sweet pecan-chocolate Elevation Cookies have all the guilty pleasure of sneaking tastes of cookie dough. A variety of made-to-order shakes and malts earned raves at our table, particularly the key lime and Oreo varieties. Start to finish, Elevation raises the bar.
