Certificate of Excellence 2014

Cuisines: American, Hamburgers
Dining options: Late Night
Description: The Burger Lounge ethos is centered on creating a burger you can feel better about eating. It begins with 100% fresh single source American grass fed beef. We believe that a hamburger should not only taste great, it should also utilize healthy ingredients produced in a sustainable environment. Burger Lounge offers a simple menu utilizing the mindful procurement of ingredients that appeal to health conscious diners, vegetarians, salad lovers and those simply “hankering for a great hamburger.” We take the time to know our growers and producers. These partners share our values of authenticity and simplicity. They care deeply about the quality of their products and environmental stewardship. It means better and more nutritious food for our guests. Our burgers, from The Lounge Burger made with fresh 100% grass-fed beef; to the Free-Range Turkey Burger made with Shelton Farms turkey; to the Organic Quinoa Veggie Burger created from organic quinoa, brown rice, zucchini, garbanzo, carrot, corn, and chipotle; are offered with organic American cheese or organic aged white cheddar, fresh or grilled onion, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato and house-made 1000 Island dressing. Finally, our Lounge Bun, made with a blend of organic wheat and white flour with a hint of molasses delivers the perfect combination of flavor, texture and temperature. You can also enjoy fine dining quality, truly healthy salads. Not your normal “burger joint salads,” these formidable and nutritionally robust salads include baby romaine, kale, spinach, arugula, organic quinoa, grilled corn, zucchini, red onion, jicama, tomato and a choice of house-made dressings. Fresh-cut French fries, house-made onion rings, scratch-made dipping sauces and simple desserts round out a perfect menu for any appetite.Since we opened the first Burger Lounge in 2007, we believe that it is about “doing a common thing uncommonly well.” As a small but fast growing restaurant organization, we represent a new take on an industry that has long suffered from gimmickry, poor quality, over processed food products and inadequate guest service. We embrace these genuine ideals and mindful environmental practices throughout our organization.With the opening of our Del Mar location in April of 2013 and a late Spring opening of Brentwood in Los Angeles, Burger Lounge continues to satisfy Southern California diners’ and their insatiable appetite for affordable hand-crafted food and superior guest service.

Great burgers, whether beef, veggie, buffalo, etc. Fries (or "frings" - mix of fries and rings) and desserts are good too. Very small place with limited seating and there's usually quite a line.

Grass fed beef and organic toppings are what makes this burger place stand out. They also have a selection of specialty sodas and draft beers. You should definitely put it on your list if you are on Coronado. Very tasty but the dining area is tiny. I practically had to stalk this poor lady and hover by her table to... More

My family and I ate here three times during our recent vacation and each time the burgers and fries were awesome and perfectly cooked. The quinoa burger was the best vegetarian burger I've ever had. The chicken was really good and the fries are truly delectable. Definitely visit this place when you're in town!

I have tried to love Burger Lounge... really I have. I mean, their write up about their beef and the ability to order fries/rings in a combo made me so hopeful that perhaps "on my next visit" I would be wowed. But I remain unwowed... and even a little bit turned off, especially by the greasy smell in the neighborhood... More

First, I don't think the burger lounge is the #1 restaurant in Coronado. I stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. It was prime lunch time and crowded. It seemed difficult to understand how to actually get a table, if there was a list, tell someone, or just stalk the current diners until the get up. Ordering was simple enough.... More

We passed by on our way to the hotel. It is the best burger place we've ever tried. A bit small of a restaurant, but well worth it. We were traveling with two kids one is 12 1/2 and the other is four months old. They enjoyed being in the restaurant . my son loved the chicken fingers. We loved... More

Very small place, but it sure packs a punch! Should have realized this when we walked up and you could see the line out the door. Grass fed beef hamburgers cooked to perfection. The bun was soft. The staff was incredibly friendly and patient - never eating there before I had a lot of questions - and she helped plan... More

We brought the family here while in Coronado on a Sunday for dinner because the Burger Lounge in Kensington was pretty good. Unfortunately this restaurant must have been having a poor day, because the 'Lounge burger' was forgettable, the fries were stale and chewy, the onion rings seemed older and a bit tough, and the shakes were on the thin,...

This is the original Burger Lounge location here in Coronado. They have been rapidly expanding throughout Southern California. They have a variety of burgers including, Grass-Fed Beef, Turkey, Seared Albacore Tuna and an amazing Quinoa Veggie Burger. Their Shakes and Onion Rings are the best. They also have an excellent Vegetable Salad that you can add any of the meat... More
