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

I grabbed a burger and the tri-fry to go. The burger was huge, juicy, and delicious! The sweet potato fries were good, and they gave me a few different unique dips to go with the fries. I wish I could have tried all the burgers! The prices were reasonable, too.

My wife and I, after our tip, paid nearly $50 for our burgers, non-alcoholic drinks and a side of two kinds of fries and onion rings. But the burgers were exceptionally generous in size and well prepared (even though I asked for swiss cheese on a large cheeseburger and got American cheese instead) and my shake and my wife's icy...

The service was excellent and there is a very big burger selection. We enjoyed our half fries/half onion rings. Great value - and go there hungry as the burgers are huge.

I am always on a quest for the best hamburger I can find. I now visited 18 of GQ's 20 Best Hamburgers. I would have to say this place fits in right up there with some of the best that are on that list. Not only do they make a great hamburger, but their sides are great as well. I... More

IMy favorite Thai restaurant was closed for vacation so I decided to try a burger place, Grill-a-Burger,recommended by other Trip Advisor members. Other reviews mentioned the"strip mall" location. I would like to clarify the description of the location of this restaurant. Unfortunately, "strip mall" conjures up a negative image in many. Yes, the location is on the end of a... More

Great cute restaurant - sit down casual. My husband and I shared the Garlic Burger, our kids had the cheeseburger each and we shared the tri-fries (garlic,yam,onion rings) and all was absolutely delicious. Kids also had rootbeer floats - total bill was $47.00. Very reasonable. They have the regular burgers and the mini burgers. Mini burgers are size of sliders.... More

We saw this was the #1 rated place to eat in Palm Desert and just down the street from our hotel...so we tried it. It is very casual with a huge selection of unique burgers and dogs. We ordered the #12 - "What a friend we have in cheeses" burger and the "Honolulu Lulu" along with a small fry and... More
