Has anyone eaten a burger from Elevation Burger? I just recieved a flyer in the mail and one has just opened near me, but I have not tried it yet. It says they are 100% organic, 100% grass-fed. Plus they use "real cheddar", and cook their fries in olive oil. I would venture to guess the olive oil might be pretty refined(?) I consider this a great sign that the demand for pasture-based food and farming is catching on to the mainstream.
Yes! by far the best burger I ever ate.. Fries are darn good too! I am guessing we are in the same area since an Elevation Burger just opened up near me as well and there aren't to many around yet. Its one of the few restaurants I feel comfortable eating at. Burgers are pricey but well worth it! I highly recommend it!
Yes! This place is awesome. I get the lettuce wrap instead of the bun and it holds up quite well. When done properly, the fries turn out very good - crispy and the olive oil adds a nice flavor (in my opinion). I think low smoke point of olive oil (when refined) is a myth, and here is a more detailed discussion of the fries fried in olive oil:

Elevation Burger is really good. Don't have any near my home, but have eaten at one in South Florida a couple times when traveling. I also like Farm Burger in Atlanta. I actually like Farm Burger better, but that may have to do with the adorable gay black man who always takes care of me when I sit at the bar.
We just got a grass fed burger place where I live, in Jacksonville, FL. But they use frozen patties from a farm in the Northeast. Still not sure how I feel about that - although they taste good and the location (pretty much on the beach) makes it a worthwhile trip in itself.
Finally, there is a place in St. Augustine called Gas: A Full Service Restaurant that serves local grass fed burgers. They have a Burger Benedict - two grass fed beef patties topped with a poached egg, bacon and hollandaise (served with no bun). Before I cut eggs and dairy I'd drive down there just for that. Delicious.
Anyway, please support your local Elevation Burger. Hopefully we will get one here in Jax!
There's one about 1.5 hours from where I live (same with most other good stuff- Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, etc.); I make sure to eat there whenever I'm passing through that area (National Harbor near Alexandria,VA). I love it!
I was in San Diego a couple weeks ago and ate at a place called Burger Lounge- grassfed burgers, organic cheese (even organic ketchup- they made a point to ask if I'd like "more organic ketchup" haha); it was AWESOME. I need to move.
I have eaten there and it is good enough. What concerns me is the lack of ingredient information for what they serve. If anyone here reads paleo toad they will remember that everyone was excited about Moe's Grill (serve 100% grass fed beef) until they found out that they inject the meat with REALLY bad additives. I would add them to my go to eating out place if they would post their ingredients.
We have two grass-fed burger places here in Seattle (actually four, because Blue Moon Burgers has three locations: South Lake Union, Capitok Hill, and Fremont.) The other is 8 oz Burger Bar on Capitol Hill. They also have bacon brussel sprouts. Yum!
