Violetta is no longer in business As of 9/21/12 they have been closed for a couple weeks/months (?) now. They are now called ELEPHANT’S PARK. Hopefully we will review them soon, I hear they have good sweet potato tots….

Hey ohhhhh! Scoutmob iphone App! Check it! 50% off your order! Use it instantly!
What we ordered: Violetta Burger – 1/2 lb burger – lettuce, tomato, red onion, super dill and burger sauce, Bacon blue cheese burger – 1/2 lb burger, Sweet Potato Fries – Large
How we ordered it: No Bun! Add extra greens please. You can easily ask for no cheese. They take substitutions really well!
What we received:
Cost: Violetta Burger (1/2 lb) – $8, Bacon blue cheese burger (1/2 lb) – $8.50, Sweet Potato fries (large) – $4.50. With the Scoutmob app the entire meal only cost us $10.50!! Woohooo!!!!!
Quality: Their burgers are all “pasture-raised”. That probably means the cows are happy roaming around on a pasture, but as they are nearing slaughter they beef them up with some type of grain feed. Unfortunately, pasture raised does not necessarily equate to grass-fed. They taste really good though and will cook it how you want it. Medium well is how we roll!
Quantity: It was a huge 1/2 lb burger. I was satisfied.
This place is so cool! You can sit outside or inside and enjoy the park by people watching and/or watching a ginormous life-size chess game while you eat. Just hope for good weather and it’s a perfect place for a nice relaxing meal.
Violetta changed management about 2 months ago, so their online menu is not up to date yet. The menu is slightly more simplified, but they still have all the basic good stuff. They are very open to the gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian community and are totally open about making substitutions. It’s great for semi-fast food when you don’t have a lot of time shopping or doing whatever downtown. This place is for sure one of our faves especially with the iphone app! Seriously dope, yo!
For the peeps who are 100% Paleo eaters 80% of the time , they have awesome milkshakes, but their old menu item of “bag ‘o beignets” are no longer served. Boooo!! So sad . Nevertheless, stop by if you are downtown!
