Lounge Burger
The Lounge Burger you know and love is getting slider-sized. Grass-fed beef sits nestled between two toasted buns, enhanced by organic American cheese, onion, pickles and Burger Lounge’s House 1000 Island.

SnackShack Burger
The SnackShack Burger is made with a juicy all-beef patty and stacked to perfection with lettuce, tomato, bacon jam, white cheddar, Shack aioli, and finished with a fresh brioche bun.

PB & Jellousy
The gorgeous blend of savory and sweet. Peanut butter nutty, salty smoked bacon, the sweet balance of strawberry jelly and the umami tongue slather of 100% Black Canyon Angus beef patty sandwiched in a Honey Wheat Bun.

Ground Chuck Norris
Beef chuck patty, choice of cheese and house louie dressing, topped with a bacon wrapped and smoked chicken stuffed jalapeño.

“BBQBB” Bootlegger Barbecue Bacon Burger
Bootlegger’s BBQBB burger starts with a perfectly cooked all-beef patty with all the classic fixins: onion, lettuce, tomato, cheese. It’s then topped off with a slathering of Bootlegger’s custom (and delicious) homemade BBQ sauce!
