Elevation Burger is the latest entry into the Vegas “premium fast-casual” burger scene that includes Smashburger, Five Guys, Fatburger, and In-N-Out. These burger chains all serve a great, pink-slime-free burger made with fresh high quality ground beef. Elevation Burger takes the concept one step further by featuring 100% grass fed, certified organic beef.
The ground beef is definitely the star here; this is a darned good burger. The fries, cooked in olive oil, were also very good (not as golden crisp as In-N-Out but better than the greasy, limp fries from Five Guys). We ordered a couple of malts that, while the malt flavor was barely discernable, were still very good shakes.
Two Elevation burgers ($6 a piece), two malts ($4 a piece) and an order of fries ($2.69) came to around $23, well worth the price if organic, earth-friendly dining is your thing. A current deal on Groupon makes it a bargain.
