These are the ONLY burgers we eat. Grass-fed beef, locally sourced. The service here is unparalleled. And if some in your party don't eat animals, there is no problem because they also serve the best salads for miles around!

I had the lounge burger. It came with carmelized onions, lettuce, tomato, aged white chedder and thousand island dressing I think. And while I think the health craze of terms like "grass-fed", "gluten-free", and "organic" are used to make more money, I truly believe it was the best burger I've ever tasted.

Went today for lunch - finding parking was a challenge in this area and the seating here is very limited. The burgers were good - fed a family of four for $63 to give you an idea about price.

Average prices---- excellent burgers! Opt for the fries vs. Onion rings. Seating outside is tight. Friendly servers.

Our family loves Burger Lounge! We have stopped at several locations when we visit SoCal and never disappointed. Buffalo burger and turkey burger are my faves, while my kids rave about the drinks they offer! We always share a fries and rings as they are not to be overlooked to complete the meal.

Best grass-fed burger. Period. Reasonable eats, good food, craft soda, beer... if you want more, go somewhere else and spend twice as much. This is like a diner meets grass-fed cows and decide to go into business.

Mmmmm This is a very small corner restaurant and there are several in the San Diego area, but we prefer the quant town of La Jolla when we want a burger. The best thing about this place is of course they use grass-fed beef and you can taste the difference. Fresh tomato, lettuce, onions are exceptional. There is a little... More

This place is awesome. The food is fresh and delicious. The burgers are really, really good. The fries are fresh and hot. They also make their own sauces - like BBQ and Ranch. I highly recommend dipping your fries in a combination of the two! The shakes (or Malts) are to die for - the Vanilla Malt is my fave.... More

Excellent burgers and very affordable. Great for the entire family. Small place so not a lot of room to sit. They do have take out.

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.
