Our group of 4 stopped here after a 2 hour drive, enroute to doing some sightseeing at Emerald Bay. The place is easy to find with it's large beer mug sign streetside, parking was easy, and the wait was fairly short. I always check the kitchen, the dining area, and the bathrooms for cleanliness and all were sparkling and tidy.... More

This is definitely the place to stop after a great day on the mountain! No, 4:30PM is not too early! A great variety of burgers to choose from, made fresh while you wait (you will not get your burger in 2 minutes...it is worth the wait though). Order a great milk shake to work on while you anticipate the burger.... More

Excellent burgers in a small relaxed spot right on the way north on Rt 89. Good friendly service. Well worth the visit.

They make their burgers fresh to order when you arrive. So it's not like McD's like they have been sitting under a heat lamp for hours on end! And their fries are great too! As well as their milkshakes!

Grilled, fresh and juicy burgers that are ahhhhmazing! The next time you are sightseeing around Lake Tahoe be sure to stop by Burger Lounge and relax on their patio front or back with one of their 2 handed burgers. You can't miss them with the Frosty Mug above their establishment as your driving by, heading towards Camp Richardson, Fallen Leaf... More

This essential burger place is in a convenient area, so to regain all the calories you've burnt hiking or skiing around Tahoe. The burgers are large and there is a good choice of condiments and sides. I love this place!

We had 19 in our party and they accommodated us so quickly, prepared our delicious orders and were friendly. Burgers and sweet potato fries were amazing.

I thought this might be just another greasy burger joint, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meat and bun when I got the grilled chicken sandwich. I went back during another trip and tried one of the burgers and it was very good too. I liked the fries also. Don't be fooled by the cheesy sign!... More
