elevation burger v. 5 guys

claudia | May 6, 2006 06:34 PM

After seeing board discussion of 5 guys vs. elevation, checked out elevation today and think 5 guys is far superior. The meat at elevation was dry and mealy, the "elevation sauce" was nothing, no flavor. The fries looked promising but had a weird powdery texture. The shake was just a cup of overpriced soft-serve ice cream. And the iced tea from the fountain was not plain tea but apple cinnamon, yuk!

I think it's whole purpose is to assuage meat guilt.

Is this place connected with potbelly? The line set-up and graphics are remarkably similar. Also, it's not open on Sunday? What's that all about?
