Burger Lounge is dependably one of the best burger places in La Jolla and if you're trying to justify eating somewhat healthily, it's the only burger place to visit! Grass-fed? Yes. All kind of other healthyish options? Yes. Great chicken-breast tenders also and they have...More

Waited beyond an hour for an order than got lost in the mad scramble to accommodate an overload of App orders. Poorly trained staff and a kitchen way too small to handle the growth. Owners need to figure out a solution or we, the consumers,...More

My husband and I tripped on this place while walking around La Jolla. We were hungry after hiking and visiting the Birch Aquarium. We aren't very much into "grass fed" or veggie stuff, but we sat outside (not much seating at all, and it was...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 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.
