This place unfortunately can't hold a candle to the other eco-burger place, Elevation Burger. First off, the physical structure is kind of wheels off--no inside seating, there's drive-through or walk-up only. There is a substantial outdoor seating area though, as well as a playscape and a water feature the kids can run through. As I idled in the drive-through line for several minutes, inching my way towards the ordering station and then the first payment window, I couldn't help but think how the carbon offset-chewing emissions from my vehicle were negating the reputed benefits of the EcoMeal I was about to receive.
Pricey: basic burger with cheese is $6.45. Add 50¢ for a cup of water. But it's a CornCup at least! Total with fries was $9.63! A bit outrageous for a cheeseburger+fries+water. The burger is larger than the one at Elevation, but I can get a big enough cheeseburger, with cheddar, and fries and water for $7.00 there, and it tastes better.
Fries: soggy, tasted ok, but were very limp and a tad greasy.
Burger: taste not so great. Burger patty is larger than the regular Cheeseburger at Elevation, but was very dry and was really too thick to not be properly cooked with some juice remaining. You can get by with thin and dry (see Mighty Fine), but when you hit a thicker burger, you absolutely must have some juciness left. I left a portion of the burger uneaten...it just didn't taste very good to me.
