“Clean Eating at it's Best!!”
Review of Burger Lounge

Burger Lounge
Ranked #57 of 5,172 Restaurants in San Diego
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $8 - $15
Cuisines: American
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.

Grain Fed beef, Free Range Turkey, Tuna and Veggie Burgers-Organic salads and everything is totally fresh and clean. It was a staple for me while vacationing in San Diego; allowing me to stay away from my food allergies and eat clean on vacation while enjoying wonderful food!!! LOVED THIS PLACE!!
Will visit again during my next trip to San Diego. BTW, The staff was totally amazing and the manager was extremely helpful in helping me stay away from hidden allergens. He was awesome. They all were!!

I travel quite a lot for business and had ventured into Little Italy for some Italian food. I stopped at the Burger Lounge to ask a couple of their employees what restaurant they would recommend. After talking to them for several minutes, I continued my quest only to wind up back there. I ordered the classic burger with fries and a soft drink. I was a little skeptical about the organic cola but it turns out it was better than any coke/pepsi I've ever had. The burger was tasty(perfect is a word that comes to mind when describing it) and the fries were hot, thin, and well seasoned. Everything that the Burger Lounge offers is organic and natural, which is a plus when you're eating "fast" food. Hands down best burger I've ever eaten from East to West coast. It was also a plus that the employees were polite, helpful, and efficient. Thanks for a great meal on a very hot day!

We visited this lounge on our recent trip to San Diego. There burgers were really tasty with 3 different sauces. The place was quite busy . All male waiters who seemed to be doing an exceptional job. The bill was a bit expensive but in CA everything is expensive anyway. All in all it was a great experience.

My husband and I just came in to the city from a long drive from Mexico. By this time it was about 9:00 pm. Many restaurants were closed and turned us away. Burger Lounge turned the grill back on for us and still served us even though they had turned everything off for the night. They were not obligated to do so, but it was very appreciated. My salad and burger both were very good and I plan to come back-- during regular hours! :)

This was burgers California style. We tried the limited time specials to be adventurous...bison and boar. Both were great. Fries, onion rings, and chocolate malt were also excellent.
