I've gotten their burgers without the bun a few times and found them really tasteless.
never gotten sick
GF burger to die for!!!
Let me begin by saying I've been diagnosed with Celiac for about 2 years now; so, needless to say, I've had my fair share of gluten-free burgers -- good and bad. The Lounge Burger was the best I've had, even factoring in the gluten filled burgers I had pre-diagnosis. The staff was beyond helpful, very knowledgeable and the owner was the kind of guy you would have a drink with. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, and was very well decorated. The menu had a healthy amount of options, but then again you don't go to a place called "Burger Lounge" for a salad -- especially when they have the best gluten free buns I've ever had. I took one bite, and had to ask him if it was gluten free, because it tasted so much like the real thing. I couldn't recommend an eatery more highly; now stop reading this and go already!
Best GF burger ever, they have a dedicated frier and we loved the food..
good service. expensive meal. 12 dollars for burger and fries. no seasoning on meat, Thousand Island dressing, or french fries
Delicious Gluten Free bun. Best I've ever had. I haven't had any problems or cross contaminations issues out of the 8 times I've eaten there. Just say you want the gluten free bun and it's an allergy. Fries are cooked in a separate fryer so you're good to go!
I have eaten here several times and have not gotten sick. The staff including the manager get me and understand my fears of cross contamination. I like the Junior Burger with no sauce and no cheese with a GF Bun that is delicious! I like the side salad with no onions or cheese. Only thing that would make it better is a designated fryer for some yummy fries. The restaurant all the way to the bathrooms are kept pretty and clean! Burger Lounge you are doing it right! Thank you! 💟
They have GF buns which is awesome! The burger was good, too, however the service was not great at all. I had to send my burger back twice for being wrong. I can't do dairy either, so the first time they put grilled onions on it (butter) and buttered the bun. They also didn't put on the pickles or bacon I ordered. Second time they at least left off the grilled onions and the ungrilled bun, but still didn't put bacon or pickles on it. By time I got my food, my husband had finished his.
I had dinner here while in town for a conference. I ordered a gluten free burger, and the woman who took my order asked if it was an allergy or just a preference. I told her I had celiac so she made a point of telling the kitchen staff to keep it separate from anything with gluten. The GF bun was unusually good, as was the rest of the burger, and the lavender mint lemonade was delicious. I had no trouble after eating here, and had such a good experience, I went again on my last day in town to make sure I would be okay on my flight home the next day. On that occasion, they were out of GF buns, so served my burger on lettuce with no up-charge. Equally positive experience. Highly recommended!
I have now had the GF lounge burger several times without getting sick. I have celiac and am very sensitive. But stay away from the fries. Dedicated fryer supposedly, but it's either too close to the other fryer that does breaded products, or they aren't careful enough.
It as so nice to have a burger with a bun.... and it was delicious. I was bummed that the fries were fried with the onion rings.... especially when I called ahead and was told the were cooked on their own. Thankfully the girl at the counter warned me not to get them if I had an allergy.
The burger was amazing, but they said their fryer for the fries is right next to another fryer that does stuff with gluten and things easily fall into the fryer with the fries so they said they didn't recommend them for people who have Celiac Disease. It was great for a tasty burger though.
We loved the burgers and fries here! The 3 members of the family who had gf buns said they were great. We were warned of the possibility of cross contamination with the fries even though they fry them separate from the onion rings. No one had a problem even our youngest daughter who has celiac the very worst. Such a fun find on our way to the Padres game!
Beautiful burgers, and even better, I didn't get sick. Went two times over the course of our trip and loved it both times. The fries are made in the same fryer as the onion rings so I couldn't eat those, but the burger with a gluten free bun was more than enough to fill me up. Great place for the whole family to eat and their sodas are amazing.
The manager was great! I was ordering the kale salad and he explained that while they fry sweet potatoes in a separate fryer when the open there is a period where the fries are in mixed oils and although it seems ok for sensitivity he recommended that those with celiacs leave it off. He was knowledgable and forthcoming. Definitely recommend!
I read these reviews before going, and I asked about the gluten free bun prep before ordering. They told me that they are prepared in a separate area, so I assumed their procedures had changed. I got serious cross contamination flu like symptoms within a few hours after. Definitely not celiac safe!
Have been to several other Burger Lounge locations where there is clearly a lot of care put into avoidance of cross contamination. This location does not seem to be making this a priority. When asked about if GF buns or other burger components are toasted in a separate area the staff seemed uncertain and told me that they don't have standards that are safe for those with allergies/celiac. I have celiac disease and for me this is too risky.
I asked my usual questions about food prep and was assured I could have a safely prepared gluten free burger. When I got the burger my gluten free bun was toasted. An alarm syarted in my mind, so I asked for the manager. Sure enough, it was was toasted with the standard buns. The manager was apologetic and personally prepared me a new burger with an untoasted bun.
They are always incredibly helpful! Burgers are delicious. Avoid the fries.
Lamb burger just became available on the menu today. The guy working the register said we are the first to try it!! He also said the fries are cooked in a separate fryer. They also have gluten free buns! Just got done eating my burger...holy cow it was sooo delicious!!! There is jalapeño relish on it but you cannot taste the spice if you can't handle it. The French fries are also so delicious!! I will be coming here again!!! Amazing!!
Excellent grass fed burgers!! They have beef turkey, bison and albacore. The gf bun was very good! The staff was educated in what was and wasn't gf. With the mangers help they were able to get dairy free as well. My only complaint was there fries are cooked in the same fryer as there onion rings, and they don't have any GF sides except a small and large salads.
The only reason this isn't 5 stars is there are no gluten free fries. The food is delicious though! I love the gluten free bun. It's very soft, fresh, and delicious. You do have to be careful and specify whether you have a gluten allergy or gluten free preference.
Update: as of latest visit (4/15) it appears they no longer have a dedicated frier. I think this may be due to the addition of chicken nuggets to their menu. Sadness. And they managed to make my Celiac hubby very sick with just the burger & bun. Very sad. The good news is we found Pure Burger just a few miles away. The burgers are much better, GF sauces, toppings etc are clearly marked on the menu and they will be careful if you ask. *************** Delicious everything. They have GF buns. They are knowledgable about cross contamination. It was my understanding that they *do* have a dedicated frier that only fries are fried in. This does vary from location to location. However, the employees are quite clear that this frier is in close proximity to the onion ring frier & it is theoretically possible for an onion ring or crumbs to fall into the French fry frier. I specifically asked if the two friers shared oil or recirculated oil & was told that they do not. I've eaten at this location twice (most recently 12/14) & was given this exact same answer re: the friers both times. And my super sensitive Celiac hubby has had no reactions from eating here. So we feel reasonably comfortable eating here on the rare occasion that we take the kids to Legoland.
Delicious! Ate here twice in two days and felt awesome after each time. Safe for celiacs! Fries are cooked in same oil as onion rings though so they aren't safe. I got the classic burger both times and they toasted the GF bun mmmm. I also tried the chocolate shake and the rootbeer float and they were both delicious.
I was very impressed with this restaurant! It is rare to see a restaurant operate so seamlessly and efficient such as this particular location does, especially since they were extremely busy even for a Sunday evening!! The food was excellent and I will be going back again besides telling everyone about this wonderful place!!!
