Stopped over for lunch. Love the concept and the quality of food. Delish classic burger, accompanied by half and half (onion rings and fries) and hibiscus lemonade. Really enjoyed the food.

The Lounge burger is an authentic, delicious, very good hamburger. So simple with very friendly staff. The milkshake is a perfect compliment of equal quality.

Highly recommend!!! it was delicious. Everything was fresh and the meat patty wasn't fatty. Only thing I would recommend would be have extras available to add to your burgers like beetroot, pickles and eggs etc.

Based on reviews, I decided to eat here while in San Diego. The restaurant was a couple of blocks from my hotel, so it won out over some other burger places I researched. I have to admit, this is one of the better burgers I've...More

We had the lounge burger, classic burger and the chicken burger with a side of half onion rings / half fries. The burgers were ok, we can’t believe the TripAdvisor hype. The chicken burger was somewhat dry and with too little sauce, the slaw fell...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.
