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!

We arrive just before noon on a typical desert Saturday. We were greeted rather abruptly and shown where to sit. Our waiter arrived promptly and took our order. A specialty burger each with a half order of fries to split. Bleu cheese dressing as a side with the fries. The place has a steady stream of diners arriving every few... More

Extensive menu. Something for everyone. We've tried quite a few and loved them all. Never heard a complaint from any of my friends that have eaten there.

We LOVE this "joint"! The burgers have been voted "best in the desert" for years, and with good reason. With quirky names (The Holy Smokey" and "What a Friend We Have in Cheeses" for example), you've got at least 35 choices of add-on's to what is a great tasting piece of beef. The fries are fresh cut, cooked to perfection... More

We have been frequenting this restaurant for several years & have never been disappointed. Burgers are always tasty & chock-full of delectable condiments. The garlic fries are a taste experience not to be missed.

We had mixed reviews amongst our party. I thought my standard bacon cheeses burger was pretty tasty. Price was to be expected. Total spent including tip on 2 adults and 3 children was $76.

Well, the place was packed for a Tuesday evening and I was looking forward to dining at the 2nd highest rated joint in Palm Desert. The piping hot order of fries impressed me with its size, home-style cut and crispy goodness and the first bite into my huge burger was delicious. Then, I had a second bite and suddenly...... my...
