Elevation Burger Coming to Frederick

An Elevation Burger will be opening up in the Clemson Corner Shopping Center. No word on the date, their website just says coming soon.

There are 6 their locations in Maryland. Anyone try an Elevation Burger before? Are they any good?

  1. I’ve been to the original location in Falls Church. They used to advertize the beef as “American Kobe” from a Virginia farm. I would classify it as a better Five Guys, with the fries being much better…

    Its no In-and-Out Burger though.

  2. I have good friends who live very close to the one in Falls Church. I do not eat beef, but my husband does and he loves to go to the one in Falls Church, he says its great. Their veggie burgers are not good though.

      • I think it depends. I don’t think Elevation burgers are the best tasting, and I would agree with you, but then I had one at a restaurant that blew me away, it was the best tasting burger I ever had. So I think of course it depends on how it is cooked. I don’t think Elevation burger is the best place to go for a good grass fed burger.

      • Yes, BGR The Burger Joint at Washingtonian, that is the one we tried. Very good burger, not sure the garlic option on the fries are worth it, but I’m comparing to the versions I had in California.

        Elevation Burger in Germantown…. Maybe it is because of grass feeding, but they were juicy, but lacked the flavor like some of the other burger contenders in the DC area.

      • the thing holding me back from going to BGR is the price – it seems way more expensive. But I am closer to the one in Columbia, don’t know if the price is comparable. Is it worth the price?

      • I’d say yes, but there’s also benefit to keeping an eye on groupon, living social and other local deal sites. I have bought multiple coupons to eat there, and at that point it is a fantastic deal.

  3. I must chime in on the In and Out’s…wowsa, sure wish we had both an In and Out and a Carl’s Jr here in Maryland. Hope this is a good restaurant.

    At this moment, I am in California. I ate at Carl’s Jr. yesterday and hope to make In and Out today. Yummy…..

  4. We have eaten at the one in National Harbor and love it. I am very excited about this. I am a huge fan of grass fed beef and love these burgers.

  5. Haven’t been to Elevation, but I am sure glad there’s a seemingly decent replacement for Freez King. Beef & Buns & Paradise and Wags are the only two in the area and they were mediocre compared to FK. I am hoping that Elevation takes up the void. Sorry, but Five Guys is lousy.

  6. I tried the Elevation Burger in Germantown, and it was pretty bad. The burgers were greasy, and the fries were like shoestring fries. Five Guys is much better, IMO.

      • I do like their fries, I like that they’re fresh cut and fried in peanut oil, but I think they need to fry them a second time. They would be so much better if they were crispy, possibly world class even.

    • That’s too bad about Five Guys moving. That was one of the few places I felt comfortable taking my 5 year old to eat when we were downtown. Not too many kid-friendly restaurants in that area, especially on a busy First Saturday. He loved hitting Five Guys for a hot dog and peanuts.

      • The issue of “kid friendly” places is getting to be a big one in our family. When our daughter brings our 2 yr old grandson to visit she would like to go out to lunch in town but there are simply no restaurants where she feels comfortable taking a toddler. I’ve seen little ones in Brewers Alley and I know that they offer high chairs, kids cups, and kids meals, but let’s face it – it’s a brewery and the majority of diners don’t go there to be subjected to the probably noise of kids, and our daughter doesn’t want her son in a bar/pub atmosphere. We have ended up going all the way down to Westview to Mimi’s Cafe because we can’t think of anything else. I guess all we really have left is Bob Evans and IHOP (Denny’s is creepy).

      • Brewer’s Alley is fine for small kids. My kids are 10 and 7 and we’ve been going there for over six years. It’s not a quiet restaurant so no one seems to get upset about kids, even unruly ones. When your grandson starts getting restless, take him to the pizza oven. It seems to fascinate all kids.

      • We’ve taken our son to Brewer’s Alley and Greene Turtle for lunch on occasion. But on a Saturday evening I would not take him there. Bar crowd + 5 year old, not a good mix for me.

  7. I agree with Brian. I have been taking my kids, now ages 8 and 4, to Brewer’s since they were born. There is more of a problem with the wait for a table on some days than actually dining there with them. We take them to Family Meal, which also has a kids menu.

  8. I ate at Elevation Burger in National Harbor and loved it. I took my wife to the one in Germantown and we hated it. Then I saw that the one in Germantown had new owners. I think if the owner follows the recipe, it will be a good restaurant.

    To the issue about kid friendly meals in downtown Frederick, Greene Turtle has a kids menu and we have gone to Wags with our son without any problem. Frederick Coffee Company has decent sandwiches.

    • I don’t care so much about kid-friendly food. He’ll eat whatever. It’s the atmosphere and crowd that I want to avoid. And in all fairness, so many of those restaurants in downtown are bars and/or trendy hangouts after dark. So I would feel weird taking a child there. I know already that they are not intended to be kid-friendly places so I’m fine with that. We just avoid them after a certain time. Frederick Coffee Company does have good food. I’ll have to remember them for next time!

  9. I have eaten at Elevation a few times. It is ok, we ate at the one at National Harbor, and just like anything, it might be better on some days then others. Fries were ok. I just sum it up as ok, not the best I have had, not the worst. However I do like them because my daughter has a peanut allergy and they don’t have peanuts anywhere in sight. Salads are pointless, just lettuce in a bowl, but my older daughter wanted a salad because she doesn’t like fries (I know she is weird) I never had the shakes, so maybe they are exceptional. I do like they have toppings that aren’t typical (balsamic mustard is good, I recall)

  10. Can’t wait to try it. I was sorry I missed out on the one in Germantown while it was open (although after reading some critiques, maybe that store wasn’t a good example of what they do). Probably putting it a block away from Five Guys guaranteed that one of them would fail.

  11. I’ve been to the Potomac location a few times. They have the best fast food burger around! Great taste and it doesn’t leave you feeling gross and overstuffed like 5 Guys does. And the cheddar cheese is amazing!
