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!

This is a good burger even though they dont know who Magilla is! Really cant recommend the hot dogs. Stick to the burgers and be prepared to pay for every sauce or extra anything that you desire.

We found Grill-A-Burger through a yelp ad last year while on vacation in Palm Desert. My husband loves to try new burger restaurants and Mexican restaurants. The kids and I were terrified as we pulled up to the tiny location in a strip mall. We literally ATE our words. Fantastic burgers , fries and rings. Total small town feel. When... More

This is a cute burger joint that has an impressive variety of items on their menu....not just in the vast number of burgers offered but salads, hot dogs, and sandwiches as well. We were greeted immediately by who I believe was the manager. He was very friendly and could be seen greeting all of the tables, making small talk, and... More

We went to this little Burger joint for a fast lunch on the day we arrived. It was recommended and we weren't disappointed. Burger meat was fresh. My wife had a Cheesburger "salad" and I had a Cobb salad. Everything was tasty and priced right.

Checked here to see reviews of Grill-A -Burger. Sounded like a good place to try. Disappointed: server not friendly, fries over cooked, lots of flys, dirty carpet. When I complained that the fries were overlooked, the server said that people like them crispy! He made no move to get new ones or remove it from the bill. He said he... More

Great tasting burger and fries! First time visitors, GAB came highly recommended. Decor could use some refreshing and updating, but don't change the burgers!

This place definitely earns an excellent rating not only for the different types of burgers, but because of the flavor combinations of those different types of burgers. And don't get me started on those fries! Hand-cut using real potatoes, none of that frozen crap. All-in-all, this is our new must stop when we are in town.
