The flavors they put together are all the ones I like. I really enjoyed their lamb burger. The onion rings are really good. I had the half and half, (half fries/half onion rings). Good fries, but great onion rings. Nice atmosphere and when a little...More

It should be easier to find good clean beef but it isn't. This place serves up large juicy pattys with fresh toppings. The buns are soft and buttery. I also got fries and onion rings. Both excellent. It was a cheat meal and well worth...More

Simply the best burgers--beef, turkey, veggie, bison, tuna--you can find anywhere. All natural, grass fed beef. Beer, soft drinks from real sugar Mexico, malts: all good. Young, enthusiastic servers. Tiny place means most seating is outside--perfect for watching La Jolla's over-the-top cars and people.

We grabbed a bite for dinner in La Jolla for reasonable prices. We ate outside and the service was excellent. You do have to go in to place your order.

The staff was wonderful and the burgers are awesome. They even had gluten-free buns for the Celiacs in our party. We had 7 people in our party and ate outside and enjoyed the sun. This is a fun, affordable place in La Jolla.

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.
