Description: 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.

Ate there twice during our stay in La Jolla. Some of the best burgers we have ever had. Sides were excellent too (onion rings were amazing) and there was a good selection of beers and soft drinks were not limited to the usual Coke/Sprite etc. Only slight criticism is the lack of seating if you're not taking out, particularly inside. Service was friendly and efficient. Very popular place - there always seems to be a line but the wait is worth it.

When we got there the line was out the door and we found out why. The burgers are great but so is everything there. They not only have shakes but malts too. Induldge in a salad there and you will not forget it.

My family and I spent the summer in Europe for 2.5 months and we REALLY missed the USA. We ate well abroad but nothing like a great burger from the good ole USA!

We love this place and they have the best burgers here. There is usually a line out the door at this place, especially on the weekends but it's worth the wait.

Great burgers and fries and always friendly service. You can usually find a parking space if you drive around a bit. They have 1 hour free parking out on the street or parking garages around.

Definitely a great place to grab a great burger!

GREAT!! LOVED the Quinoa salad and the delicious tasting veggie burger patty. My husband totally enjoyed his grass-fed burger with freshly made buns! But the best for my husband was the malted milkshake he ordered. It was by far the best one we have ever tasted in our lives!!! Honestly!! We are planning on eating here again. OH the servers were sooo nice.

You want a tasty hamburger? Well you will get one and top it off with nice shake and friendly service. You do need to wait for up to 20 min to get a seat, but it's worth it.
