Burger Lounge grew out of the idea that a hamburger should not only taste great, it should also utilize healthy in- gredients produced in a sustain- able environment. They provide a simple premium quality menu that appeals to health conscious diners, vegetarians, salad lovers and diners simply “hankering for a great hamburger.” Their beef comes from one


farm, grown by a small company where the animals are well treated and never spend time in a corporate “feed-lot”. Their diet consists of tall green grass from beautiful Kansas prairie land. This is what nature intended cows to eat and nothing more. No hormones, no antibiotics, no grain, no corn, just beautiful green grass. These conditions produce a beef that is delicious and far better for you than con- ventionally grown beef. Burger Lounge has six loca- tions, in Hillcrest, Kensington, Little Italy, Gaslamp, Coronado and La Jolla.
