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.

I became an instant fan of this place. I walked in this afternoon after reading several good reviews. As a veggie, I ordered the quinoa veggie burger and it's as good as it gets! It was perfect. From the patty to the raw onions. The quantities were perfect. The people were friendly and they served quickly. There is ample well-lit seating indoors and outdoors.

The only catch - it's pretty expensive. The veggie burger cost more than $8 with taxes excluding the tip. I would have tried the onion rings everyone talks about if they were cheaper.

Burger Lounge on La Jolla was a pleasant surprise. There was a little line to wait to order, but not bad. The burgers are from grass fed cattle. The fries are made fresh as well. Even the sodas are organic, if you want that. The outside seating is limited, of course, but there was room to sit and enjoy. You can have the burgers prepared any way you want it--from cooked to what you want on that burger. Check out their website and menu! It is an experience worth trying. The price is a little high, but this is definitely not Burger King! If you want fast, but fresh, organic and good, this is worth checking out!

Great food and always busy as a result! This is a great place for burgers and salads. The food has been very good every time I've eaten there.

Be ready for a long line and finding a seat can be difficult at peak dining times.

If I could have brought the waitstaff home with me, I would have! They couldn't have been nicer! The food was great and they didn't blink an eye when my husband asked that his burger be cooked a little more - they don't have a microwave, so they made him a new burger. Great location too - take a walk around town after you eat here. And PLEASE eat here! It's worth it!

Visiting from Philadelphia, we're used to Five-Guys. No comparison. These burgers were great and so were the onion rings. Wish they had one here. Even better than Bobbie Flay's burger joint in Phila.
