Description: Burger Lounge is centered on creating a burger you can feel better about eating. It begins with 100% fresh single source American grass fed beef. We believe that a hamburger should not only taste great, it should also utilize healthy ingredients produced in a sustainable environment. Burger Lounge offers a simple menu utilizing the mindful procurement of ingredients that appeal to health conscious diners, vegetarians, salad lovers and those simply "hankering for a great hamburger." We take the time to know our growers and producers. These partners share our values of authenticity and simplicity. They care deeply about the quality of their products and environmental stewardship. It means better and more nutritious food for our guests. Our burgers, from The Lounge Burger made with fresh 100% grass-fed beef; to the Free-Range Turkey Burger made with Shelton Farms turkey; to the Organic Quinoa Veggie Burger created from organic quinoa, brown rice, zucchini, garbanzo, carrot, corn, and chipotle; are offered with organic American cheese or organic aged white cheddar, fresh or grilled onion, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato and house-made 1000 Island dressing. Finally, our Lounge Bun, made with a blend of organic wheat and white flour with a hint of molasses delivers the perfect combination of flavor, texture and temperature. You can also enjoy fine dining quality, truly healthy salads. Not your normal "burger joint salads," these formidable and nutritionally robust salads include baby romaine, kale, spinach, arugula, organic quinoa, grilled corn, zucchini, red onion, jicama, tomato and a choice of house-made dressings. Fresh-cut French fries, house-made onion rings, scratch-made dipping sauces and simple desserts round out a perfect menu for any appetite.Since we opened the first Burger Lounge in 2007, we believe that it is about "doing a common thing uncommonly well." As a small but fast growing restaurant organization, we represent a new take on an industry that has long suffered from gimmickry, poor quality, over processed food products and inadequate guest service. We embrace these genuine ideals and mindful environmental practices throughout our organization.Burger Lounge continues to satisfy Southern California diners' and their insatiable appetite for affordable hand-crafted food and superior guest service.

Really nice meal on our last night in LA, one of the best salads we've ever eaten, great burgers and chicken for the kids, and really excellent value. One of our best meals on this US road trip.

We both had the classic cheeseburger---super good!!! Moist, tender beef on an awesome bun. We shared the mix of fries and onion rings. Will be returning.

This was the first time I've tried this place (it's relatively new and I'd heard mixed things, so hadn't hurried to try it). I had a burger and the combo onion rings / fries (which the menu claims is enough for two, but I think that's a bit of a stretch). I thought everything was good but not great. I prefer really juicy burgers and this one wasn't so much. The fixings were fine (grilled onions, cheddar cheese, etc), the meat tasted ok, but there wasn't anything exceptional about it. I liked the fries and the onion rings were good, but again, not exceptional. Overall, it was ok, but there are so many other choices nearby that I probably won't return.

Love love love burger lounge. Addicted to their turkey burgers, love the gluten free options. Soda is amazing (get the ginger if you like it spicy). Great fries, even veggie/vegan friendly options that are fresh and filling. Service at this location is always on point, people constantly checking in, grabbing you a refill, taking away garbage. Been here way too many times since it opened and don't see that ending any time soon.

Oh ya. I love this place- first of all it is all grass fed and organic. So you are eating "healthy". They also have a veggie burger made with Quinoa! I love their salads since they are huge portions and all fresh veggies.

This is my favorite burger spot in CA
