Saw Burger Lounge on the corner near our hotel on the first day of our visit to San Diego. Thought about it each day and decided to have dinner the second night. Seriously impressive. The quinoa burger is amazing!!!! So tender and full of flavour. The cheese is melted and perfect. My meat-eating boyfriend was very impressed!! His fully-meated burger... More

Burgers were great and service was even better! Splitting a burger and fries was plenty for a break in the day

Had difficulty choosing as their salads sounded delicious but I needed some meat so ordered the... More

Little Italy restaurants were mostly$15-30/entrée. We were with 4 kids so kept looking. Found Burger Lounge, a franchise in Southern California. Costs about $7-10/person. Very pleased! Kids meals were big portions, re-fill for pop beverages included. Yummy chicken tenders, burgers. Cod sandwich was good. Turkey burger was delicious. Healthier fast food. Friendly service. Dog friendly too. Adults and kids all... More

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.
