Burger Lounge: The Southern California Classic

You’re in California or Las Vegas and you’re craving a burger.  But not just any burger, you want it all. Taste. Freshness. All-natural ingredients. Healthful.  The best the West Coast has to offer. You’re in luck, because the culinary masterminds at Burger Lounge have taken the everyday burger and elevated it to an art form.

Burger Lounge operates on the philosophy that a hamburger should do more than just taste great; it should use premium, all-natural ingredients sourced from a sustainable environment. Not only will you not have to worry about going overboard on calories, fat and saturated fat with their Healthy Dining-recommended choices, but you are also getting an all-around, good-for-you meal that can help support your health goals and the environment. The highly praised grass-fed beef used in their burgers comes from a single farm where the animals enjoy the wide open space and beautiful green grass. No hormones, no antibiotics, no grain or corn – just the best that nature has to offer.

But there’s more to Burger Lounge than just beef burgers. There’s turkey, salmon and a quinoa veggie burger that was created with meat-lovers AND vegetarians in mind.  That’s not all. Many guests also come back time and again for the fresh vegetable and organic quinoa salads. You can enjoy these wonderful salads with the house-made lemon vinaigrette, or get an added boost of protein by adding chicken, salmon or turkey.

Here are some of the Healthy Dining picks to choose from:
