Not So Elevated Burgers

Elevation Burgers

There is a new burger place in weird town and it fits right in. I mean naming a burger place “Elevation Burger” is pretty weird. I mean what exactly does that mean? In Austin we call our burger joints real names like Huts, Dirty Martin’s, or BB’s (OK, BB’s is in Georgetown, but that’s where I live and BB’s serves a really tasty burger so give me a break.). We want our burgers to be juicy (read greasy) and the buns toasted.

Sadly, the best thing about the burgers served at Elevation Burgers is the cheddar cheese, but unfortunately the cheese on my burger wasn’t even close to being melted. I ordered the basic, and at Elevation that’s a single ¼ pound patty cooked to the point of dryness, and served on a bun so cold it seems stale. All will be nicely wrapped to keep in the juices – too bad there won’t be any. You may of course order nearly as many patties as you wish, but if they are all as dry as mine it won’t be pleasant.

Now the good: The fries are the shoe string type, fried in olive oil and very tasty. The trimmings include most anything you can think of, and some you won’t. Service is fast and the staff very friendly.

Elevation offers a side of mandarin oranges, not to mention a vegan burger – now that is weird.

Elevation is located at 2525 Anderson Lane in case you want to give it a try. Of course IMO your time will be better spent driving to GT and going to BB’s, Monument Café or the Rattlesnake Inn – all have a burger that is miles above the ones served at Elevation Burger.

so you seem like a burger lover like I am. If you are ever out in Manor on a Saturday you have to go to a place called Ghost Town. Hands down the best burger I have ever had!!

I live in Georgetown too and you have to check out Hardtails, its the new bar/restaurant over by hog alley on 35. the burgers are amazing. the tejas has refried beans, fritos, cheddar cheese and jalepenos. beyond yummy.
