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.

We stopped by their little spot on the corner two blocks from the beach for a late lunch. Enjoyed a good Classic Burger with organic American cheese and BACON, fries, and a cane-sweetened ginger beer fountain soda (free refills) while seated outside on the sidewalk in the sunshine watching La Jolla life pass by. They also have Salads. Beer and... More

We wanted a casual dinner Sunday night and this was the perfect place. It was within walking distance from our hotel so we did take out. Burgers are delicious and very fresh. We had a classic and one of the speciality elk burgers! Topped the order off with an order of onion rings and a root beer float! All of... More

As a vegetarian I've had just about every type of veggie burger out there. Burger Lounge's is by far the best! My husband (a carnivore) also loves their other choices. Feeling sinful? The onion rings are yummy.

This place is ok. I am not a huge fan of the buns which are really sweet. There is very little seating here and the burgers are not traditional.

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.
