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!

My husband loves these burgers! They are so huge that I can't eat all of mine and he usually gets the rest. The ingredients are always fresh and tasty.

Ate here yesterday for my daughter's birthday after reading the reviews on TA. It is understandable how this place is the #1 rated restaurant in Palm Desert (even above Morton's) after eating here. The burgers are huge, and the choices of burgers is outstanding. The names of the burgers alone are worth going for a chuckle. The burgers are a... More

After reading all of the great reviews (which may be old), I decided to try this place. I ordered my burger well-done, as instructed on the menu (if you don't like eating pink burgers). It came out medium, and, against my better judgement, I had to send it back. The service was mediocre, at best. The french fries were delicious,... More

Picked up burgers to go to watch a sporting event on TV. The staff got us in and out in record time. The burgers were simply excellent.

Outstanding burgers and the avocado fries are to die for! In a shopping strip. We ate outside and didn't notice any traffic noise. Our draft beer was good and cold! Yum!

This is a good spot for good burgers. The menu offers a variety of burger toppings along with a selection of fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings. I had the Minney burger which was a 2 ounce patty with cheese, lettuce, tomato and pickle on the side. It was good but not great. The cheese tasted like it was... More

Yes, the burgers are good. I had the Minney burger which was a 2 ounce patty with cheese, lettuce, tomato and a nice pickle on the side. The cheese tasted like it came from a can which I did not like. However, to be fair, I did not ask specifically for cheddar. The waitress is part of the ambiance and... More

The four of us had a very nice lunch with burgers and fries. Service was very efficient, burgers were excellent and the owner stopped by to see how everything was.
