A demo-style kitchen, tabletops made from recycled water bottles and sustainable to-go packaging reinforce Burger Lounge’s eco-friendly, transparent message. Although other players in the crowded better-burger space also promote  sustainability, this fast casual promotes itself with the tagline “The original grass-fed burger.” Those burgers form the core of the menu, along with turkey, tuna and veggie burgers, salads, sides and shakes. Local beers are also available.
