Description: 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.

“Awesome burger and great quinoa burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We noticed that this little burger place on Wall Street in La Jolla, California in got really high marks so we decided to try it and were glad we did. At a moment's notice, the staff seated all nine of us. My husband said it was one of the best burgers he has had in recent years. I was immensely pleased to order my first quinoa burger and it was delicious. We also split a "half & half" of French fries and onion rings which were uniquely spicy.

If you are looking for casual dining at lunch or dinner this is a great place to eat. The staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive. The waitress mentioned the shake special of the day - strawberry - and my husband said it was delicious.

The Burger Lounge offers many other choices of burgers, sandwiches and salads so it definitely warrants additional visits.

“GREAT burgers & FUN sodas : )”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

We stopped here while visiting La Jolla Coves. The burgers were great. While I went for beef, one of my daughters went for a veggie burger - both were VERY good (along with onion rings). Burger Lounge also carries "Maine Root" sodas - we tried the Maine Root root beer - really good. Many other interesting varieties to chose from (including a ginger brew and others). Limited outdoor seating available. Great service.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Went to Hillcrest one . Service from gal behind the counter was fantastic. Visited at 11 am service was pretty good being it was cooked fresh.The woman who took the order was attentive. The restaurant was spotless and outside seating good but facing a very busy street. Very lite onion rings and not greasy.
