Elevation Burger now open in Latham

It's tucked in to the corner of the shopping plaza.

Quickly noted: Elevation Burger finally opened in Latham this week. The location for the new-school burger chain in the Fresh Market Commons shopping plaza -- at Route 155 an Route 9 -- has been in the works since 2015.

There's been a boom in more-upscale, fast-casual burger chains lately: BurgerFi, Smashburger, Burger21 have all opened locations in this area in recent years. And they've joined Five Guys and locals such as Crave and Juicy Burgers.

Elevation Burger's claim to differentiation is that the beef for its burgers is "100% organic, grass-fed, free-range." The company says its chicken, bacon, and the beans and grains for its veggie burgers are also organic.

We haven't had a chance to try the food. (Maybe you have?) But we might have to get a crew together and do another tasting tour.

If you do another burger chain tasting tour, would you consider including vegan/vegetarian options?

i suggest a tournament of burgers

Wow - so now in Loudonville/Latham JUST on Rt 9 between Newton Plaza and Latham Farms, there's: Five Guys, Burger 21, Elevation Burger, Burger Fi, and Red Robin. Throw the OG Fast food options Burger King, Wendy's, and McDonald's in there too...that's a lot of ground beef.

I would also like to have the vegan/vegetarian option included in the next burger chain tasting tour.

@Bob, Julie: Message received.

For what it's worth, I wrote a post about veggie burgers during Burger Week back in 2015 (it was the same week as the burger tasting tour).

It is the worst most horribly ran place I have ever seen in my life I will never ever be back. Every order taken was wrong. Everything about the place was pathetic.

How many of these burger locations will become karate studios and seasonal tax preparer offices? Sonic, I'm lookin' at you.

I went on opening night at 8 pm - only to be told by a listless staffer that there'd be a 30-45 minute wait. What!

There were just 5 patrons around. Guess they were ordering in supplies or thawing the meat. Any respectable place that 'sold out' would have offered come-back coupons or some consolation. Nada! Inexcusable!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind.
