Elevation Burger

I finally got to try Elevation Burger! I've been wanting to venture here for awhile. I'd heard of Elevation Burger in passing, and I was reminded of my desire to try this place when I ate at Pie-Tanza.We went to the one in Falls Church, and they also have locations in Arlington and National Harbor.
Their menu is pretty straight forward. You order food at the counter, and when they call your name, depending on the "caller" they bring the food to you or you go up and grab it.
We were all pretty hungry, Mom very hungry, so the mini chocolate chip cookies(3) 99 cents won her over immediately. They were decent but I probably would not get them again.
We each got a milkshake. Starting from the top right and go clockwise: Chocolate Oreo, Coffee and Vanilla Oreo. The Chocolate and Vanilla Oreo were great, but I was not happy with the way they did their coffee shake.
We each got a Cheeseburger.If any of you have been to 5 guys, they have the same deal. You pick your burger, then you get to pick as many toppings as you want. I like the toppings here because they have caramelized onions, which is one of my favorite foods. As far as their burgers go, they taste healthier than 5 Guys-not as greasy, and their products are organic without jumping in price, pretty cool.
Their fries were great-crispy and cooked well!
We all got water, but they had the coolest soda machine ever! All touch screen.
So what's the verdict? The fries, milkshakes and burger toppings were very good, and the burgers were decent. I would come here again if it were convenient, but I wouldn't make a special trip to come here. All and all a good trip. Next up (hopefully): Ray's Hellburger

Grade: B  (I am trying out a new rating system, look for my updated ratings soon!)
