Sometimes being able to choose from eight locations just isn’t enough when you get cravings for the juicy burgers that Elevation Burger is known for. We’re never going to be disappointed chomping down on all that grass-fed goodness in the cool environs of the restaurants. After all, it is wonderful to be served by such an amazing team, always happy to suggest the best way to elevate your burger to your liking with additional toppings. It’s not always convenient to get in the car and drive to the nearest location, though, no matter how much you want to! This is why we could not contain our excitement here in the office when we found out that Elevation Burger now delivers on Carriage!
When it came to perusing the menu, I decided to forgo the usual mobile app and used the full-sized web site. I eat with my eyes, as it seems, and the menu photographs are a fait accompli when it comes to the perfect sales pitch.
The menu is as beautifully simple as it always was; burgers, fresh fries and drinks. But how would our favorite burgers fare as a delivered item? Each one of us chose our favorite burger to sample so we’d best be able to compare the experiences of restaurant or resting on our laurels.
I love the idea of an Elevation Burger, the classic two patty offering with a choice of all those toppings for free! When you see the list it’s quite exciting for me; pickles, lettuce, tomato and onion. But I must say, I always prevaricate on whether or not the onion should be raw or caramelized. My colleagues consistently choose caramelized but maybe that’s because they’re all married…raw white onions for me it is then! I decided to go for a lettuce wrap to see just how well iceberg withstands time, heat and two meaty slabs of beef.
My two other work buddies decided to go for just the single patty each of the 100% USDA certified organic beef. Can there be a better combination of the tried-and-tested cheese, mushroom and bacon? Only if it’s organic bacon, and real cheddar of course!
When deciding to indulge in the whole potato fries the most carb-conscious member of the team excitedly said “The cheese fries! They have the most delicious real cheddar on them, two large slices!” So, we ordered those along with a batch of normal fresh fries, cooked in heart-healthy olive oil, just to compare how they each delivered. We’re all gym members, that’s half the battle, right?
Not one of us decided to forgo the Elevation sauce on our burgers. An elusive combination of sweet and sour with tangy pickled cucumber mixed from a tomato base, it truly reminds me very much of a 1970s childhood steeped in thousand island drenched salads—but only so much better!
Another sauce which is typical Elevation Burger is the Balsamic Mustard sauce. Perfect for those who enjoy a mustard but prefer the fire to be tamed slightly by combining it with the sweetness of a concentrated white grape vinegar. This sauce was liberally added to both the hamburger and cheeseburger options.
The potato buns did a great job in transport with the burgers placed carefully in boxes. The buns were substantial enough to withstand the delivery time of 30 minutes. They also absorbed and combined the delicious flavors of the juicy patty and held the built burgers together well.
I was happily surprised to see that with my lettuce wrapped Elevation Burger, they don’t stint on the iceburg lettuce leaves when building the sandwich, so the burger handled well and the lettuce remained fresh. I’ll definitely try this option again, especially as I’ll most likely be ordering at the restaurant next time. The fact it saves 140 calories also helps. More room for milkshakes!
Delivery time always seems quicker with Carriage. The fact that you can track the delivery and know exactly where you driver is at all times really helps with one’s patience! But this delivery was really quick. We pre-decided the delivery time, and received a notification of when the order was placed and then when the order began being prepared. Thirty minutes is better than sitting in traffic and we enjoyed the same great taste as is always to be expected from this quality burger brand.
