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

We went here based on TripAdvisor comments, and wow. Not much to say for the outside, but we are sure the locals know of this place! The staff were friendly, and several times the owner came over to ask how we were doing, if we were enjoying the meal, etc. He also pointed out several of the local regulars. I... More

Having eaten at another burger restaurant, the server suggested this as another place to try. Others are right. Don't go by the outside; it's quite off-putting. Nice enough inside. Sports bar ambience without the TVs. Lots of options, which was fun, and the avocado fries (which are over rated). Enjoyed our food. Paid the bill ( a little pricey. Likely... More

The beef is ground daily at Grill A Burger, fresh buns, the best french fries ever and avocado wedges. You can order any burger without the bun. They have won consistently awards for the best burgers in the valley. Staff are friendly.

Located in a strip mall this place isn't much to look at but it was well worth the short drive from our hotel. Fresh, tasty burgers. Lots of different options to choose from. Trying to be reasonable about portion size, we split a burger which had pepper jack cheese, jalapeños, bacon and chipotle mayo and a small fries. Yummy! Loved... More

This is definitely in the top 5 best burgers I've ever had; the combinations are extensive and it makes it hard to choose! It was juicy but not too fatty, very tasty and even though it was huge, it was manageable. We tried the avocado fries, my husband loved them, I found them ok, I prefer regular or yam fries.... More

This is our go-to when we have a burger craving. Burgers are hand-formed from great quality beef. The burger is delivered on a healthy bun, is not messy……..just the right moisture. There are so many burger combos it's hard to choose but I'm a fan of the bacon bleu. Don't forget the sides. Along with traditional fries, they offer sweet... More

Very casual restaurant that is very popular and for good reason. Burgers and fries are excellent and reasonably priced. There are a number of other nice items on the menu including salads and other meals so it's not strictly a burger place if peope you are with don't want a burger. Very friendly and quick service.

OK...I agree the burgers are as good as I have had anywhere...even the Roy's Waygu deal at happy hour was equal but not better than this place. Yet few have mentioned the huge serving of cole slaw and sweet potatoe fries which are much better for you. We can walk to Grill-A-Burger and laugh at the fake jungle...almost Hawaiian decor...laugh... More

If you want a great burger, this is the place. There are so many to choose from. My favorite is the bacon, cheddar and BBQ sauce. The fries ( regular and sweet potato ) are yummy. The hot dogs are fabulous and the Acapulco Avalanche ( huge salad) is the best.
