All of the Burger Lounges are great but I really enjoy the abundance of outside seating at the Little Italy location. Located right on India Street it provides ample opportunity to watch the flow of people while enjoying the great food provided by the good people at Burger Lounge. The monthly bugers are always a must-try though you can't go... More

It's a fast/casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The burgers were hot and juicy. The french fries were crispy with skin on, oiled and salted. My husband said the onion rings had a delicious batter and were fried well. The chocolate malt was thick and rich.

My wife is a self proclaimed Cheeseburger connoisseur. I had the classic, my wife had the lounge burger. The burgers were good, but honestly we both thought that the actual burgers were better at Five Guys than they are here, not by a lot, but still this is supposed to be a burger specialty place. Really lacking in that wow... More

My daughter does not get to have a quality burger on a gluten free bun very often, so we were please to stumble upon the Burger Lounge. The burger was cooked to perfection and it was on a full sized soft gluten free bun (not the usual). It was great to see her enjoy something that others take for granted.

We discovered this restaurant by simply walking by. What a great find. This is one of the best burgers I have had ever. Service is cafeteria style for ordering with the servers bringing the food to you table after ordering. Service was prompt and courteous. The burgers were fresh, juicy and perfectly cooked (medium) and the half rings - half... More

Went as a solo diner while at a conference, and wanted quick and simple, while close to my hotel. Found all of these qualities here. Greeted and served by an enthusiastic greeter. Interesting concept of all grass fed beef, and creativity prepared. Really nice local (regional) Stone IPA and a Lounge Classic burger made a great combination. Casual but competent... More

Wonderful burger spot in Little Italy. They also have a great cod sandwich and other eats that you'll enjoy. Reasonably priced with a nice little patio. Service was good and the atmosphere was appealing.

Had lunch here. Crispy chicken burger was tasty and moist. Small beef burger just the right size and flavourful. Fries, okay but have had better elsewhere. Staff friendly.

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.
