Description: The Burger Lounge ethos is to create a great tasting burger you feel good...
The Burger Lounge ethos is to create a great tasting burger you feel good about eating - "to do a common thing uncommonly well." It starts with 100% fresh single source American grass-fed beef. We believe that a hamburger should not only taste great, it should utilize healthy ingredients produced in a sustainable environment. We provide a simple menu that appeals to health conscious diners, vegetarians, salad lovers and those simply "hankering for a great hamburger." Burger Lounge is a gimmick free fast casual respite where guests can enjoy real food made from whole food ingredients in a modern and comfortable setting.

Went here on a tip from Trip Advisor. We had a mixed group of picky eaters and everyone LOVED Burger Lounge. We had real burgers and veggie burgers. Both were very tasty and fresh. The fries and rings were yummy too. The veggie burgers were the main reason we wanted to go here and they are well worth every penny!... More

Ate there twice during our stay in La Jolla. Some of the best burgers we have ever had. Sides were excellent too (onion rings were amazing) and there was a good selection of beers and soft drinks were not limited to the usual Coke/Sprite etc. Only slight criticism is the lack of seating if you're not taking out, particularly inside....

My family and I spent the summer in Europe for 2.5 months and we REALLY missed the USA. We ate well abroad but nothing like a great burger from the good ole USA! We love this place and they have the best burgers here. There is usually a line out the door at this place, especially on the weekends but... More

GREAT!! LOVED the Quinoa salad and the delicious tasting veggie burger patty. My husband totally enjoyed his grass-fed burger with freshly made buns! But the best for my husband was the malted milkshake he ordered. It was by far the best one we have ever tasted in our lives!!! Honestly!! We are planning on eating here again. OH the servers...

You want a tasty hamburger? Well you will get one and top it off with nice shake and friendly service. You do need to wait for up to 20 min to get a seat, but it's worth it.

Limited menu but they do it well. Grass fed beef makes you feel better about your calories. Nice outdoor seating right on the corner where you can car shop and watch the world go by while enjoying a juicy burger.

Very good Turkey Burger, French Fries are a very close 2nd place to McDonald's, Panko Crusted Onion Rings were delicious. If I lived out here, I'd be tempted to eat here regularly. But then I'd also need a gastric bypass within a year...
