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.

Excellent burgers! Worth the detour!

Drove out of our way to try this place out and was not disappointed! Simple, tasty burgers well prepared. The onion rings and fries were great too. And the stream of patrons didn't slow down one bit during our visit.

Great burgers, fries and onion rings. It is our family favourite when in California. We had been to the one in Santa Monica many times so were so happy to find one in San Diego.

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
