Met our criteria for grass fed beef and MIL's criteria for "burger for lunch." Despite our arriving at lunch time on a Saturday when the Farmer's Market was in full swing just outside, our service, food, and atmosphere were all top-notch. A great vibe all around with market goers coming in and out, and families and smaller units doing their... More

I loved this placed. The turkey burger was really, really, really good. The burger size was perfect. The salad was very tasty also. I had really enjoyed my lunch at this restaurant. I would recommend to everyone to try. You would not regret it. Customer service was great.

When I got my lounge burger, it was delicious. The burger was so juicy and fresh. The side of fries was very good but just a... More

The good: yummy "smashed-type" burger that comes in hippie and normal versions. Great service. Good onion rings and fries. Clean. The bad: no normal fountain soda (sugar can soda)

The burgers, chicken digglers (especially on a salad), spicy chicken sandwich and lavender lemonade are great. I love the quinoa burger! The lemon basil vinaigrette is amazing. The food is always fresh. Love the ease of ordering online. The employees are always friendly and professional. I would have given 5 stars, but they recently took my favorite salad off the... More

It was early afternoon, we were hungry but didn't want to eat a big lunch since we were having a special dinner later. We happened upon Burger Lounge and were happily surprised. Yes, they serve burgers with all the trimmings (bacon, cheese, fries), but also have gluten-free options and a quinoa veggie burger that was actually quite good. Plus great... More

Small corner restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The burgers were excellent and you can order fries and onion rings by the half order. Service was ok and the restaurant was clean.

We arrived in San Diego and after walking around most of the day, we wanted something close. After reading the triceps for Burger Lounge. We die used to try it. Good call! The burgers were delicious (even the buns were about perfect). They have "craft" soda and I had the lavender mint lemonade (HIGHLY recommend - they give you a... 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.
