Elevation Burger - Sticker Shock

Mike | May 1, 2006 03:45 PM

The prices have recently gone up (the usual excuse - rising delivery costs due to rising gasoline prices). I did a double take, a couple of looks at the menu, and some mental arithmetic when I was in there today and orderd a cheesburger and fries (no drink) and the total was $6.15. I don't remember what it cost last time I was in there, and perhaps I'm just sensitive to that dollar threshold, but I sure was surprised at what it did to a $10 bill.

The guy in front of me at the register got a burgers, fries, and shakes for himself and his kid and the bill was $21!

Cheeseburger $3.35
Fries $2.29
Falls Church (4%) and VA (5%) taxes - $0.51

Other stuff that I remember:
Fountain drink - $1.89
Shake - $3.58

- Still ISO the $5 lunch.
