Description: Burger Lounge is centered on creating a burger you can feel better about eating. It begins with 100% fresh single source American grass fed beef. We believe that a hamburger should not only taste great, it should also utilize healthy ingredients produced in a sustainable environment. Burger Lounge offers a simple menu utilizing the mindful procurement of ingredients that appeal to health conscious diners, vegetarians, salad lovers and those simply "hankering for a great hamburger." We take the time to know our growers and producers. These partners share our values of authenticity and simplicity. They care deeply about the quality of their products and environmental stewardship. It means better and more nutritious food for our guests. Our burgers, from The Lounge Burger made with fresh 100% grass-fed beef; to the Free-Range Turkey Burger made with Shelton Farms turkey; to the Organic Quinoa Veggie Burger created from organic quinoa, brown rice, zucchini, garbanzo, carrot, corn, and chipotle; are offered with organic American cheese or organic aged white cheddar, fresh or grilled onion, crisp lettuce, fresh tomato and house-made 1000 Island dressing. Finally, our Lounge Bun, made with a blend of organic wheat and white flour with a hint of molasses delivers the perfect combination of flavor, texture and temperature. You can also enjoy fine dining quality, truly healthy salads. Not your normal "burger joint salads," these formidable and nutritionally robust salads include baby romaine, kale, spinach, arugula, organic quinoa, grilled corn, zucchini, red onion, jicama, tomato and a choice of house-made dressings. Fresh-cut French fries, house-made onion rings, scratch-made dipping sauces and simple desserts round out a perfect menu for any appetite.Since we opened the first Burger Lounge in 2007, we believe that it is about "doing a common thing uncommonly well." As a small but fast growing restaurant organization, we represent a new take on an industry that has long suffered from gimmickry, poor quality, over processed food products and inadequate guest service. We embrace these genuine ideals and mindful environmental practices throughout our organization.Burger Lounge continues to satisfy Southern California diners' and their insatiable appetite for affordable hand-crafted food and superior guest service.

If you feel like to eat a good burger in the Santa Monica Third Street Promenade, this is a good option, even if you are not a fan of burger as it is my case.

Place us clean, service is correct and food is not as fat as normal.

However my children prefer the Honest Burger and Five Guys of London to these ones. They say those burgers are even lighter.

Seriously the best & tastiest burgers and fries in Santa Monica, California and quite possibly the world. Doesn't look much from the outside but go and eat there, you will not be disappointed. Great onion rings and milkshakes too.

Was looking for a casual dinner in Santa Monica on a Friday evening, and thoroughly enjoyed Burger Lounge - you get a quality burger with fresh salad greens, and their onion rings/fries are excellent.

They have a selection of beers on tap, but I opted for a coke in a glass bottle, which is something I haven't seen in too many other places recently!

Great concept for service where you order at the register, take a pager and they bring your food to you - all happened in a reasonable amount of time too!

Good choice for lunch/dinner if you are looking for something casual but of good quality.

We looked on TripAdvisor to find a suitable, inexpensive place to eat in Santa Monica and we've come across this little gem. I was a bit disappointed at first as it looked more like a fast food chain than a restaurant but the service was super fast, friendly and the food was out of this world... both my husband and I agreed this was the best burger we've ever had! Divine!! You wouldn't go here for a romantic meal or a special occasion but it is perfectly suited for lunch/dinner whilst out and about.
