“Scale Burger - a Favorite”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Ok, lets face it... there aren't a lot of options in Elbe. And for some reason, we don't really feel a need to try other places, as Scale Burgers has been a family favorite for years. It's not much, and if you blink you will miss it. It's a little quirky... they don't take credit cards, they hand write their orders, and you get a playing card which is called when your order is ready. There's only outdoor seating, and you don't get a lot of condiments with your order. And, no, there's no restroom, but there is a new rest area just across the street. But, hey, we don't mind... particularly as we enjoy the small town flair and the flavor. Whether the Overload (bacon cheeseburger), Hot Brakes (spicy with jalapenos) or the more basic ones, we enjoy the burgers. They aren't the biggest, or perhaps even the best we have every had, but they are consistently good. Fries and onion rings are crispy, and they have great milkshakes. It costs more than fast food, but that's kind of the point. Family owned and small town eating like it should be. Worth a visit next time you are heading through Elbe.

“OK burger”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We ate these thin fast food type burgers in the blazing sun. Nothing special, but not a lot of food options here.

“Awesome atmosphere!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 via mobile

I was going to Mount Rainier with my brother and we stumbled upon this gem. It was during lunch time on a Saturday so it was pretty busy. A motorcycle group was there and it just was a very cool experience. I got the legal burger and it was the best burger I have had in a while.

“Memory-maker!”
Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

I went here as a child with my family on nearly every Saturday trip to Paradise at Mt Rainier. It's a simple burger shack that provides good burgers and greasy fries in a fantastic setting. I can't wait to take my boys for their first time in October.
