At GRILL-A-BURGER, Palm Desert, we have a passion for hamburgers. We make our trendsetting burgers the old-fashioned way using only the finest and freshest ingredients available. Our hand crafted, grilled-to-order, moist and juicy patties are made daily from fresh (never frozen) 100% all-natural USDA Inspected Choice Beef, free of artificial hormones, antibiotics, and other things that don't belong in hamburgers. And we have nice buns, too! They are freshly baked daily at a local bakery. Buns are slightly toasted and garnished with garden crisp lettuce, hand-sliced red onion, vine-ripened tomato and sliced kosher pickles. Our homemade French fries are never frozen and are only made with fresh Idaho Russet potatoes that are hand cut, double-fried and lightly salted without any processing steps in between. And we change our zero trans fat oil every day! Clean oil = crisp, great-tasting fries! Our authentic soda fountain milkshakes and malts are hand-dipped, hand spun and made with premium vanilla bean ice cream, whole milk and natural flavorings. All served in a place that considers our environment by using food packaging that is all natural and made from annually renewable resources by buying from as many local vendors as possible and, of course, by using energy efficient equipment and recycling. We hope this is everything that you have been looking for in a burger place and MORE! Again, welcome and enjoy!

I recently took the pleasure of visiting the Palm Desert GRILL-A-BURGER once again. They still turn out an exceptional quality product. The wait staff are impeccable and they have, in my humble opinion, the BEST BURGERS IN TOWN. The other menu options are also delicious. I encourage you to try this great place. Their fare is always fresh, always delectable.

The Burgers are great, they offer a great variety and even special side dishes. The Avocado Wedges were a surprise as alternative to classic french fries. The Service Team is friendly and quick. We simply enjoyed our meal!

Love their hamburgers and fries. And they have a small burger for small appetites which is rare in a hamburger restaurant. Good food. They are very busy during the season but service is generally quick.

Best hamburgers in town and fries and coleslaw can't be beat. Great beer on draft and free refills on soda. Staff super friendly and attentive. When you need. A burger fix it's t he place to go. Other food looks great but I'm fixed on the Burgers.

Many different options as far as burgers are concerned. We had a regular cheeseburger and one had a mini. Also had onion rings. Burgers were wonderful, onion rings not so great.

We sat at an outside table and had great service. So many choices of burgers and other sandwiches. All of them were large and filling. Generally I'm not a fries person but these were really good! The chili on the chili cheese burger was yummy. Great place for informal dining.

I heard about Grill-A-Burger from a friend and just had to see what all the fuss was about. Well, tried it today and the garlic burger and parm fries exceeded my expectations! Not to mention, the Burger Betch was running the place like a champ! Until next time, GAB!
