My wife and I stopped in to Elevation Burger today, May 5, 2015 after picking up a book at Barnes & Noble and a few items at Whole Foods. We never saw a burger place that is almost completely organic. We liked it a lot. We talked with Kyle and he graciously walked us through our first time there. It's hard to believe that the burgers are organic-- they taste so wonderfully good and juicy. Also, glad to know that there is no High Fructose Corn Syrup in the ketchup. The atmosphere is pleasant and welcoming and friendly and courteous as well. We will definitely be back. Are you considering building a restaurant in Canton? We surely need one. God Bless all of you and thanks for being there.

Thank you so much for the great review! Love to read reviews like this. I may expand to Canton at some point, but for now, I'm trying to keep the restaurants very close together so I can be in each one a lot. In the meantime, have you considering moving to Ann Arbor? :)

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!

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 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.

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!
