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.

I live in the area so of course it's my favorite hamburger joint.

Grass-fed beef and everything is as fresh as it could possibly be. I didn't like the fact that you must place your order at the counter instead of wait-staff service, but the burgers are great. Fries and onion rings especially good, too. Wish they had draft beer.

Quaint restaurant. Great location. Busy the entire time we were there. Service with a smile and even laughter. Excellent customer service. Served in a reasonable time. The buffalo burger was excellent.

Good food, small place, busy. Park on the side roads. Original cheese burger came but cheese was missing. Jason helped out and got me cheese, than got me a new cheese burger on him. Nice!

Service and food are excellent. Love the quinoa burgers. Shakes are well done. Onion rings are to die for!

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.
