Burger Lounge is setting up their latest restaurant at The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch in Carmel Valley. According to a recent permit filing, the burger chain is due to replace Five Oceans Fish Market which had been open only a year at the shopping mall.
Headquartered in San Diego, the business was founded by J. Dean Loring in 2007 and has grown from their flagship location in La Jolla to 23 fast-casual restaurants across California. Their latest spot in Carmel Valley will be their ninth location in their home county.
Burger Lounge is known for their scratch made ingredients and grass-fed beef burgers. Their locations keep it simple, with a straightforward menu of options including turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, paleo options, salads, and plant-based burgers. The business opts for sustainable food practices and uses eco-friendly materials in their interior design as well as their food packaging.
