There is a strange, sweet finish to the Elevation Burger burger that haunts ELV to this day — over a week after he tasted it.
It was a touch herbal, but almost sugary in its lingering presence, and might be the product of the grass-fed beef they brag of here.
Regardless, it was damn tasty.
In texture and form, the burgers here put us in mind of In-N-Out’s, but the standard cheeseburger is a slightly larger, double patty construction oozing with a thick layer of the stuff. They use good bread and cheese and cook them to medium without sacrificing much moistness — which is about all you can ask of a fast-food burger.
As for the fresh-cut, olive oil-cooked fries, they are f*cking fantastic.
So is the milk shake…even though we ordered a malt.
“Extra malt,” was how ELV shouted his order.
When he did this, the counterman smiled a knowing smile of agreement, but apparently was unsure of the concept,* as what arrived was a mighty fine shake with barely a hint of malt to it.
Regardless…we shall return.
Yeah, the food here is that good.
ELV’s lunch for one came to $12 + a $2 tip.

* Only two places in Las Vegas know how to get with the program when it comes to making a proper malted: Luv-It-Custard and the Baskin-Robbins on the corner of DI and Jones — maybe because ELV stands there and insists upon three scoops of malt powder before they’re allowed to blend.
