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

The burgers are terrific. My husband and I love to get one of the mini burgers each and share an order of one of their unique French Fries. The malts and shakes a yummy and come with the tin full of the extra shake. Come hungry.

If I'm craving a great burger, this is my go to. There are so many from which to choose. I go in telling myself I'm going to try a different burger and so far I've managed to though I do go back for ones I've had before.

This place used to be great! Fantastic food and prices but it seems like the quality has really gone down hill the past year. The food just isn't as good as it's used to be, sorry to say.

Take it from someone who lives here --- it's a must for residents and tourists. It's set back from the street so it's not in the best location. Matter of fact, you'd drive right by it if you didn't know it was there. It's so worth the stop. Funny menu, great prices and the quality of food is excellent. Consistent... More

Grill-A-Burger really is the best "burger joint" around. I can see why its #1/236 in Palm Desert CA, and #4 in the USA!! Very good menu with lots of burger choices, a great, friendly, and very attentive staff, nostalgic ambiance, and reasonable prices Do come in hungry, portions are big. If searching for it be attentive, it's a small storefront... More

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.
