Elevation Burger

Elevation Burger

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

One of the things I miss most about living on the West Coast is a good Western burger joint, like In-n-Out or Fatburger. Five Guys is good, don’t get me wrong, but it’s a boardwalk-style burger place, and I’m looking for a real burger joint here, people.

Enter Elevation Burger, and with it, my first decent hamburger in quite awhile. Elevation uses Virginia grassfed Kobe beef raised in Warrenton and all manner of high quality products as part of their burgers. The fries, which were delectable, are cooked in olive oil. The milkshakes, which were incredible, are made with fresh ice cream and a number of optional additives.

The place was packed when we got there just before eight on a Friday night, but the crew behind the counter was tireless and our wait for the heavenly burgers was only about 20 minutes. No, it’s not In-n-Out Burger, but damn if it’s not the next best thing.

    silly me, blogging from flickr and not linking.

    The website is Elevation Burger, and it’s located right off Lee Hwy in Falls Church (next to the Saab Dealer)

    I’ll go fix the links now.
