They have monthly specials of different animal meats and I've tried a bunch of them. But their mainstay Lounge Burger is really great. I get an additional side of their Thousand Island and add as needed. Fries great, as are onion rings. Glad it's so near to me!

Five of us ate here. Everyone else got burgers and reported being delighted with them. I got a salad that didn't resemble the description on the menu at all. They'd rate the burgers a 5. I'd rate the salad a 1. Onion rings shared for the table were a hit. Highlight of service: one person got a root beer float... More

Great tasting thick burgers with lots of flavor. Grass fed beef must just taste better. They also serve great onion rings, shakes, and sometimes-exotic meat options. It is a casual dining environment and I tend to get my food to go. ( By the way, the buns help make the burger something great. Everything tastes very fresh. I also like... More

The only thing I eat here is the salad, but my husband always gets a burger and fries, omg, the best in San Diego. Everything is freshly made to order. The people are always friendly, I usually go to LaJolla or Coronado locations. The only down fall for me is there is not a lot of seating, and it's always... More

This is probably the best tasting burger I have ever had. I ordered the bison burger, fries, and a beer. The food and service was excellent. The menu is a la carte so the meal was a little on the pricey side(over $50 for two people). I would give it 5 stars and eat there more often if the price... More

Ahhh. The sauce they use is fantastic. Nice tasty burger. Not over cooked. Fresh ingredients. Free range beef. Natural drinks. The fries are handcut as are the onion rings. Staff here is always friendly. I can't wait to go back.

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.

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.
