Description: Burger Lounge 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.Burger Lounge continues to satisfy Southern California diners’ and their insatiable appetite for affordable hand-crafted food and superior guest service.

“Great Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

One of the best burger joints I have been to in a while. Everyone is super friendly, lots of good choices on the menu and prices aren't too crazy. Food comes out quick and is always fresh, would certainly recommend to anyone looking for a really good burger. Worth checking out if you have never been before.

This is a chain restaurant. The food is fresh and quality of the food is good. I also like their thick milk shake. The beef is grass fed. One of our favourite fast food place

“Great spot for a quick lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

I loved my lunch here- I chose the small (er) Turkey burger with fries. Both were fresh and full of flavor. Especially the turkey burger which can be hit or miss. Even the iced tea had me going back for a refill!

“Bison w/Gorgonzola - Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Because nothing says "Happy Birthday!" like a burger, we opted to celebration my special day with a trip to Burger Lounge. They really delivered! The bison burger with gorgonzola was mouth-wateringly tasty. We also had fun trying all the nifty fountain drinks on tap.

The service was good, the meal fantastic. We'll be back anytime we're in town.

“Spendy, but good burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Good service. Good food. Get the onion rings for sure. Interesting drinks too. But, not cheap. 8 dollars for the classic cheese burger. Add the fries, rings, a couple drinks and a burger for my spouse and with tax it was over 28 bucks.
