Description: 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.

Very good tasting burgers, fries, salads, and shakes. The fries, however, are very small. One order is barely sufficient for one person, and they are a little pricey for the size. Overall, pretty good, but the shake wasn't enough - we still went to Ghirardelli up the street for ice cream after. Definitely recommend, but would consider ordering more fries... More

Pros: I am picky about the food I eat due to a sensitive stomach, so I like to make sure the food I eat is prepared with high quality, mostly organic ingredients. Burger Lounge is one of the very few fast food places I frequent. The only food items I've had here are the Veggie Quinoa Burger, the Lamb Burger,... More

I have eaten at some "Top Chefs" restaurant and burger places but this far exceeds them. If I was in town longer I would have gone back. Service was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly.

It's not just that the food tastes amazing, or that they offer gluten-free buns, or that a half-lb burger with everything is under $10, It's also the way the beef is raised. Free range, raised with compassion, that's what makes the biggest difference. Service is also proactive and courteous.

What an amazing experience! We tried this place out of desperation - we were staying at a friend's house and there was nothing else in the neighborhood that was open at this point that seemed convenient. We got a Lounge Burger, Turkey Burger, Vegetable Salad, and a Frings. Tried a french fry as we walked away with our food, AMAZING.... More

By far one of the BEST burgers in my opinion! ORGANIC- you can't go wrong! Although the prices are a little pricey the burgers are the best and great to go with anyone! Not really a formal occasion, though. The staff was soooo nice and you must get: The vanilla brownie shake The lounge burger Onion rings! AMAZING MEAL!

My family wanted to go to this burger place since we were hungry and in the neighborhood. Wasn't in the mood for a burger, but tried their crispy chicken sandwich. I'm almost always disappointed whenever I go to a restaurant, but this was a pleasant exception. This sandwich was obviously hand-breaded and wasn't the least bit greasy. I didn't have... More

Ate here on a recent trip to Cali and was pleasantly surprised. I dined on the Little Lounge burger that was more than enough. It was delicious! Right taste, temp and seasonings. Onion rings were great too. So wish they had one in NC. Little burgers are about $6, add bacon $2, onion rings $5. There housemade barbecue sauce is... More

Stumbled across this place while looking for something totally different. Sure glad I did too. The restaurant is tasteful and inviting if a bit small in this hip part of Kensington. We stopped by on a Friday evening to a line 12 deep, moved fast though. The organic quinoa veggie burger is awesome and enough to satisfy even the most... More
