We stopped here for lunch. We split a burger and a Cesar salad with crispy chicken. The salad was good, it tasted really fresh. The burger was AMAZING! The bun was soft but crispy, it was delicious. I would definitely eat here again.

I was pretty impressed with the overall meal and quality of the food, but I do wish my burger was a little bigger.

I ordered a hamburger. The patty was delicious. It was very expensive just for a hamburger without french fries 9.60. You need to order the hamburger at the desk, because they do not serve in the tables. It is located in the Italian neighborhood, and...More

The veggie burger with grilled onions was awesome. My wife’s cod burger was excellent and she hardly likes fish. The bread melts in your mouth. Two burgers a beer and a coke for $31

Glad you enjoyed! My wife's favorite as well. She like to ask for a wedge of lemon to squirt on the line-caught sustainable cod.

One of the best burgers I have had in a very long time. I have celiac s disease and so I don't often get to enjoy a good burger with a quality bun. Deliciously good to the last bite!

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.
