With all the great options in La Jolla, I was just wanting a burger. I thought I would try Burger Lounge because it looked a little faster. This was my first experience with a Burger Lounge and wow! The burger was so fresh. The bun,avocado and everything else on it complimented it so well. This burger was the real deal... More

Stopped here quickly, looking for a quick lunch, and liked that they offered Gluten free buns. The burger was really good! perfectly grilled. For a chain, I was pleasantly surprised.

Hard to beat a sunny day in La Jolla combined with tasty burgers, fries and onion rings. The hibiscus lemonade has a uniquely delicious tang to it. A "Little Burger" was just right for my lite eater wife. Mainly outdoor seating.

Very tasty Husky Burger with fries. Beer good. Unfortunately, the lady serving missed my salad in the order. Otherwise five points.

They have small batch fountain pop. The ginger flavor was super strong, but so fun to taste. Root beer is delicious. Burgers good, but would have been better with some carmelizing on the beef.

We stopped in hungry for a great burger having been eating "California Style" for the week. We were not disappointed. Although seating was a bit limited (especially if its cold or wet outside) but other than that its spot on. The staff is helpful and cordial, the food was fresh and tasty and served up in an appetizing presentation. And... More

Fresh, organic - best burgers, lavender mint lemonade, salads....milkshakes - soooo tasty. Busy place and always lined up - but well worth the stop for lunch.

Went for a classic burger and shared a portion of onion rings and fries with my husband. For such quick service, you could tell everything was well prepared and it was all delicious. Service was good too, but then we're British, so we're only just getting used to everyone wishing us a great day!

Better than average burger joint. Order at the counter and they bring your order to you as it is cooked. We had been hoping for the Ahi over salad they used to have on their menu, or the Ahi burger. Unfortunately for us, those items aren't on the menu anymore. We tried the Caesar salad (1/2 portion) and the Alaskan... More

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.
