Very tasty burgers; average fries. This place was packed with we ordered so we had a bit of a wait but it was worth it. It is small with very little seating inside and some outside seating.

Stopped in for a quick eat and was impressed. Burgers were cooked perfectly, fries were great, and staff was attentive and helpful. My only regret is not adding the bacon to the burger!

We heard about Burger Lounge from a couple of people and had to try it. We found it super greasy and over rated. It's just an over sized greasy ordinary hamburger.

San Diego is a little easier to find Paleo eats than home in Ontario, but man oh man... I was not expecting the juiciness of the burger I had here! Wow! They know what they are doing here! Not a fan of the drink selection, not a whole lot of not-sugary options besides water, but didnt matter.... burger was worth... More

Probably one of my top 2 burgers! Juicy and filling. I had the basic burger and it was big! Try their craft pops.

A small spot close to La Jolla, you don't expect something like that especially at Little Italy! They have homemade lemonade and an interesting selection of beers. I had the classic burger with French fries and it was amazing! Staff is friendly and helpful...i highly recommend this place if you're in downtown area.

Will be back! Organic burger, delicious fries but the RINGS were fabulous! - tasty crispy breading on the onion rings! Indoor and outdoor seating with nice shade under the umbrellas. Staff came around frequently to assure we had everything and were satisfied with our meal.

If you want a great tasting burger, that is not well done all the way through, then this is a place to be. They have a limited menu, but have excellent quality food. The fries are very good as well. They have plenty of seats outside if you don't wish to eat inside. My mouth is watering just thinking about... More

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.
