I used to go to these in DC and am so glad there is one in Ann Arbor now. This is my mom's go to spot and treat when we are done with the University Hospital, we come to Elevation Burger for their tasty organic food!

I ate at Elevation Burger for the first time this past Sunday, September 21, 2014, and my review is mixed. On the one hand, it's nice that there's a place to get organic beef on a burger, if that's what you're looking for. Also, the staff seemed pretty courteous and the restaurant was clean (although they had a "fad??" of keeping the ketchup bottle at the very corner edge of each table, which seemed ridiculous to me considering it could be easily knocked over or grabbed by a young child.) The issues that I have with Elevation Burger are: (1) They are WAY over priced for that type of food in general, even considering that they serve organic beef. (2) The only organic item is the beef, so for the money being shelled out, you're still getting the chemicals/preservatives that come from all the other parts of the meal (bun, condiments, fries, etc.) (3) We spent $25.00 (yikes!!!!) on a burger-and-fries lunch …. the burger wasn't all that big, the bacon cost $1.49, I got one slice and it was burnt almost completely black. Add to that that the extremely thin fries are a small serving, and they soak in a lot of the oil. I'm glad we tried it, but we will not be going back. For $25.00 I expect a larger, fresh, less-greasy burger and double the amount of fries.

Hi Jeannie. Thank you for giving us a shot and taking the time to write such a detailed review. We actually put the ketchup on the corner so that we can tell when a table has been used. Usually, when someone sits down, their instinct is to move the ketchup from the edge, so when we see an empty table where the ketchup is not at the edge, we know that table needs to be sanitized. It's part of how we manage to keep the restaurant so clean. Aside from our beef, the bacon and and our vegan veggie patty are also organic. Also, we have a variety of organic beverage options. Our potatoes are not organic, but they are GMO free, as is the olive oil in which we fry them. Our bun, our ketchup and our barbecue sauce are natural products made without HFCS and other unhealthy ingredients. Our cheese is 6 month aged and unprocessed. So, yes you are absolutely correct that not everything is organic. As you mentioned, our prices are already higher than other restaurants (e.g., McDonalds). If we were to switch everything to organic, it would unfortunately put pricing out of reach for most of our guests. Instead, we are looking for opportunities to slowly shift more and more of the menu towards organic in a way which can minimally impact our menu pricing. When you order, you can specify if you have a preference for softer or more crisp bacon, though it definitely should not be black. I am very sorry that happened, and we would also be happy to replace that bacon if you just let us know. I'm sorry we didn't hit the mark with you. We'll use this feedback and keep striving to improve. Thanks, Mike

Awesome burger, fries, shake, and cookies! Wish their fountain soda choices were natural too, or at least a few healthy drink options, but all-in-all very good.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
Thanks Matt! So glad to hear you liked it. In the reach-in cooler (to the right of the cash register), we do have cane sugar sodas, juices, organic milk and organic iced tea. We also brew an unsweetened cinnamon orange iced tea that is quite good if you like cinnamon. Hope to see you again soon!

Service was great, very nice front staff. Beef was good quality. Place was bright and clean. However, the burger just wasn't that great and it's pricey. I could get a tastier burger (w/ fries) in downtown at Red Hawk for less. Just my 2c

1st class food and service! Not only can you taste the difference in their burgers, you can feel it as well. You'll leave full but not bloated. I'd recommend this place to the President, if he asked me. You absolutely have to try, you won't be disappointed!
Response from the owner - 5 months ago
Awesome review! Thank you so much. Let us know when you finally get the President on board to try us out. We'll save a table for him. :)

Pretty good. Like 5 guys but not so greasy. Has more of a homemade taste. Didn't feel like a gut bomb after eating. Will go back.

Had the elevation burger with cheddar. Meat was very tender and flavorful. Large slices of cheddar cheese were the icing on the cake. My girlfriend had the vegetarian burger. You could actually see the grains/veggies in it. She loved it and I thought it was pretty good for a veggie burger. You get a lot of fries, so worked out well that we shared an order. They tasted great. I prefer thicker fries personally, but the shoestring style was good as they were all crisp. Definitely will be going here over 5 Guys for my next burger.

I love going to Elevation burger. The staff is ALWAYS friendly, professional and upbeat. I'm a vegan, and this is definitely my favorite burger place to eat. I could eat here every day!!! My only complaint is the table visits from the staff that happen too frequently. Their table visits are done regardless of eating, conversations or phone conversations and it's really the only thing I dislike about eating here. But it won't stop me from eating here, it just might keep me from dining in.

Thanks for the awesome review, Jamie! We've definitely been making an effort to tone down the visits a little and at least prevent multiple visits. It's just hard for us to contain our excitement sometimes. :)
