Burger Lounge Beefs Up Sunset Strip with First L.A. Location

Sustainability never tasted so good! Burger Lounge, the beloved San Diego fast-casual dining destination, has set its sights on the City of Angels, with the first of three certified green Los Angeles locations now open in West Hollywood.

Locations in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica are slated to open this year as well.

Burger Lounge, founded by J. Dean Loring and Michael Gilligan in 2007, grew out of the idea that a hamburger should not only taste great, but also utilize healthy ingredients produced in a sustainable environment. That driving principal, reflected in everything from the organic ketchup to the Wild Salmon Burgerto the cherry tomatoes in the Fresh Vegetable Salad, has made Burger Lounge a fixture in the San Diego community, with six locations. 

The thoughtful approach to the menu is paralleled in Burger Lounge’s service ethos that always puts the guest first. Servers offer freshly ground pepper with salads and anticipate diners’ needs during every step of their visit.

“We’re thrilled to continue building upon the foundation we’ve created in San Diego with the opening of the West Hollywood location and future locations in Los Angeles,” says Burger Lounge President and CEO J. Dean Loring. “With so many Angelenos committed to eating healthy, sustainable food, we’re happy to offer a burger you can feel better about eating.”

The West Hollywood Burger Lounge is located at 8539 West Sunset Blvd.
