If you're in a nostalgic mood for the good old days, or classic American food, nothing satisfies like a burger, fries, and a milk shake. Fortunately today's burger joint restaurants, especially those in La Jolla, feature fresh, organic ingredients, such as grass-fed, hormone-free beef and poultry and locally grown produce. That way you can enjoy old-fashioned taste with a modern, healthy approach to preparation.

Here you can choose from several handcrafted burgers, including beef, turkey, and quinoa veggie. Burgers are served with organic white cheddar or American cheese, fresh or grilled onion, organic ketchup and the Burger Lounge's house-made 1000 Island dressing. The free range turkey burger is accompanied by fresh basil. Seasonal burgers are also available, such as spring lamb with asadero cheese, jalapeno relish, and tomatillo green chile mayonnaise. Other dishes include chicken tenders, healthy salads, onion rings, french fries, shakes, desserts, beer and wine. Special children's meals are also available and you can you hire the La Jolla Burger Mobile Lounge to cater your next party.
