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.

“Our new addiction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

If you want a burger, without the 21st century guilt about where it comes from and how, this is the place. Every time we go to the city, I try to group our errands around a Burger Lounge location. My 13-year old loves the green salad (reason enough to go!)

“Burgers Done Right”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

This place is informal; you order at the counter and they bring your food out to you. This was the best burger I've had in years! The rest of the offerings were good as well. Outdoor seating was enjoyable.

“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Very crowded, but then again, very good! A bit slow to get your food, but the servers were very nice. The burgers were strong, especially the turkey burger. The onion rings were fantastic! Kids really enjoyed their burgers (though the kids burger is tiny and the "adult" burger is huge, so portioning for the kids was a bit tough) and the shakes - which were gigantic!
