Burger Lounge is a fun little burger joint with a few locations here in San Diego. Home to one of the best vegetarian burgers, in my opinion, as well as turkey and grass-fed, never frozen beef burgers. They even offer any of their burgers in mini form (also known as sliders to some), if you aren't feeling ambitious enough to get a full size.
Whether you eat meat or not, I think it would be hard to pass up such a delectable combination of vegetables and quinoa, that is their Burger Lounge Vegetarian. This little beaut is made up of organic quinoa, brown rice, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, onion, garlic, panko, parsley, chipotle, monterey jack cheese and topped with lettuce, tomato, house-made 1000 island, fresh or grilled onions, pickles (gotta ask!) and white cheddar or american cheese.
Back on my 21st birthday, a few girlfriends and I went out to Burger Lounge and the nice waiter surprised me with a cute hostess-style cupcake, lit candle and all! :)
