They make their burgers fresh to order when you arrive. So it's not like McD's like they have been sitting under a heat lamp for hours on end! And their fries are great too! As well as their milkshakes!
Grilled, fresh and juicy burgers that are ahhhhmazing! The next time you are sightseeing around Lake Tahoe be sure to stop by Burger Lounge and relax on their patio front or back with one of their 2 handed burgers. You can't miss them with the Frosty Mug above their establishment as your driving by, heading towards Camp Richardson, Fallen Leaf...
This essential burger place is in a convenient area, so to regain all the calories you've burnt hiking or skiing around Tahoe. The burgers are large and there is a good choice of condiments and sides. I love this place!
I thought this might be just another greasy burger joint, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meat and bun when I got the grilled chicken sandwich. I went back during another trip and tried one of the burgers and it was very good too. I liked the fries also. Don't be fooled by the cheesy sign!...

The "peanut butter burger" crowd is a special one and we want them to know that we support their cause. Because we "get it," you can add bacon to any burger for a small charge. Make any item a small combo for $3.95 which includes a small fry and a small soda.
