  • Elevation Burger

    Today I had lunch at a place called Elevation Burger where they have 100% organic grass fed free range beef and fries cooked in olive oil. It was awesome. I want to make this a weekly treat but I don't want to go overboard so here is my question. If I have to choose to give up one item would it be the bun or the fries. Which one is worse. I can't give up both I'm only human

    Don't give up either if you enjoy them both. Adjust the rest of the day's intake accordingly...

      I'd give up the bun~ I don't get a reaction from fries. Plus, I really like them!

        I'd ditch the bun too... fries seem like the lesser evil.

          But why give up the bun if he enjoys eating it? He did not indicate any intolerance or other reason to abstain in his post?

            Is Elevation burger a nationwide chain? We have a few here in the Northern VA/DC area.

              Ditch the bun. The fries are way more paleo.

                If you have to ditch one, make it the bun. Although the heat needed to fry the taters is very problematic for olive oil. Personally, for an occasional treat I'd eat both. Just wish they would expand down here to Fredericksburg, cuz they sound very good.

                    Eat the burger on a salad or wrapped in a large lettuce leave and keep the fries - eat guilt free

                      If the french fries are potatoes fried in olive oil, then it is 100% Primal. The only reason to give it up would be to remove calories.

                      I don't eat buns, so I'd give that up.

                        I've never heard of this place. I'm gonna check out the Dallas location next week before we head to Angelika. Sounds delicious.

                          Ditch the bun. I eat there quite a bit as their original location on Lee Highway in Falls Church is about 3 blocks from my house. They gladly wrap a double burger in a big iceburg lettuce leaf, tastes very good that way. I don't miss the bun at all. I'll usually share an order of fries or if I am feeling greedy a milk shake with my co diner. Make sure you get the frequent diner card, with 7 patties, you get a free patty.

                          This place has expanded like crazy, from the original one about five years ago, I've seen quite a few more in the Washington DC area.

                            EAT BOTH, enjoy the HELL out of it, if you don't eat potatoes and bread everyday you will be fine.

                              Yes, it is nationwide (global actually). Currently there are ~30 locations, but expanding quickly.
