We visited San Diego as a family over the holidays. We asked a local at our hotel (Marriott) which place they would recommend and they mentioned Burger Lounge. The name kind of threw me off honestly...didn't sound that appealing. I kept picturing a strung out hippie with some "grass" munching on a Big Mac ripoff. But, once I got here,... More

It's true! Just as the other reviewers write, the food is fresh, and tasty. The service is efficient, friendly, and helpful. It is casual: there are a few stools indoors, but the majority of the seating is outdoors, with heaters and umbrellas. It is often very busy, with line-ups, so a table is not guaranteed. Lots of families as customers,... More

We felt late some early evening munchies and thought a good burger might do nicely. We had stuffed ourselves two days earlier at a crowded In-and-Out Burger which did the trick, but felt the burgers were shrinking since our last visit. We hadn't tried tried Burger lounge so we gave it a go. It sells itself on grass fed beef... More

Great burgers and fries. Very casual. We took our two grandson who are six and four and ate at a table outside. Service was good and food came out quickly.

Am a repeat customer since nearly Day One. Am very impressed that the quality of the food, the friendliness, courtesy and efficiency of the staff has remained top-flight. To be honest I had to stop myself from going two nights in a row!

I don't eat burgers very often but when I do I go here. Good quality meat and excellent burgers. The other things there such as salads are likewise excellent.

I tried the Burger Lounge for dinner and really enjoyed the food. The restaurant is casual but nice and they offer a lot of interesting burgers. I tried the Albacore tuna burger and was surprised how good it was. The tuna was not over cooked, it was seasoned really nicely and the bun was tasty and not too large. The... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant during an early evening walk. Since I don't eat hamburgers I almost passed it up but luckily stopped to look at the menu. I decided to try the fish burger and was pleasantly surprised when I saw the burger which had a huge, grilled to my taste piece of Ahi tuna with a delicious sauce. I... More

Wow! Amazing burgers. Tried the elk and the classic and both were excellent. Paired with artisan root beer float and a side if uniquely sliced fries and this was a great burger meal. Sidewalk seating had heaters, and the perfect weather made our dining experience a joy.

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.
