Very tasty Husky Burger with fries. Beer good. Unfortunately, the lady serving missed my salad in the order. Otherwise five points.

They have small batch fountain pop. The ginger flavor was super strong, but so fun to taste. Root beer is delicious. Burgers good, but would have been better with some carmelizing on the beef.

We stopped in hungry for a great burger having been eating "California Style" for the week. We were not disappointed. Although seating was a bit limited (especially if its cold or wet outside) but other than that its spot on. The staff is helpful and cordial, the food was fresh and tasty and served up in an appetizing presentation. And... More

Fresh, organic - best burgers, lavender mint lemonade, salads....milkshakes - soooo tasty. Busy place and always lined up - but well worth the stop for lunch.

Went for a classic burger and shared a portion of onion rings and fries with my husband. For such quick service, you could tell everything was well prepared and it was all delicious. Service was good too, but then we're British, so we're only just getting used to everyone wishing us a great day!

Better than average burger joint. Order at the counter and they bring your order to you as it is cooked. We had been hoping for the Ahi over salad they used to have on their menu, or the Ahi burger. Unfortunately for us, those items aren't on the menu anymore. We tried the Caesar salad (1/2 portion) and the Alaskan... More

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.

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.
