People seem to think that business raise prices based purely on a profit system but between food cost and labor a lot of places come close to just hitting cost with their prices. Most of the profit they expect is from appetizers, desserts and drinks. I've worked at places where the profit margin on a $30 filet was only about $3 again not outrageous, just a product to get you in to buy other products.
If a burger cost that much, then other places wouldn't be able to sell them, with the same amount of actual meat, for 60-70% off of that price. You are paying more for the burger because of where the place is located, not because of what it cost.
