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.

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.
