Description: Welcome to hamburger heaven! At GRILL-A-BURGER 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!Awards includeBest Burger Desert Sun 2008, 2009, 2010Best Burger Palm Springs Life 2011-12LA Times Best Burger in the Inland Empire 2012

My most favorite burgers are at Grill-A-Burger in Palm Desert and anytime we're in the area, we gotta go there! They have about 30 different burgers, and some excellent non-burger choices. (You gotta love the creative naming of their foods) Don't forget to share their 50/50 onion rings and fries...the onion rings are to die for!

Stopping for the night in Palm Desert on our way to Phoenix, we decided to rely on Tripadvisor for dinner recommendations. Grill-a-Burger was number one on the list - the reviews looked good, and the menu looked great. Not surprisingly, we had a great dinner. My Burger was cooked perfectly, topped with all the fixins that I asked for. My... More

The buns were the best and softest buns, bacon was crispy and cooked to perfection...it actually belonged on a burger. I give the customer satisfactory 5 stars because the employees actually pay attention here. Not to mention the fact that we were there at the height of lunch hour and got our food less than 10 minutes after we ordered.... More

Went on a grocery shopping trip in Palm Desert and found this little burger joint in a small strip mall. OMG what a fantastic experience! A menu of burgers, hot dogs and fries that almost make it impossible to choose one over another -- ALL DELICIOUS. Homemade buns, genuine beefy patties, fresh ingredients and shoestring fries that are authentically French!... More

Small place so go early! The selection and quality of the food makes this a special burger joint. The french fries are the best as well as the avocado fries.

Went to the grill a burger based solely on trip advisor recommendations as being number one for the area. First thoughts.....this is not the ritz so if you are expecting that kind experience then think again. This is a restaurant that specialises in burgers and has the most brilliant menu. Whoever thought up the titles take a bow. The staff... More
