My husband and I ate here a week ago. It was our second visit. My slider burger was perfection....they say it is only 2 oz. but felt like much more. His burger was good but the bun got soggy quickly. French fries and onion ring combo delicious. The meal came to $30. Probably would return for the sliders only (at... More

Good beer, good burgers, what more can I say? Oh yes. There are over 30 types to choose from! That's not including the hot dogs, chicken/turkey burgers and other delights they serve.

We come at least once a week and refer all our clients. The food is great the best part is what we call the "Donna Experience". She is exceptional. Makes you feel at home and entertains at the same time. Best burgers in the valley. Try it

I hadn't been here for while since I stopped eating meat but my daughter and I decided to give it a try when the restaurant we were going to have lunch at was closed. We were so glad we did! We both had a veggie burger and its was literally the best veggie burger I have ever had! I had... More

I live near this Burger Joint. For over six years I have been in love with their burgers. The variety is amazingly fabulous. My preference is a simple one, meat, double cheddar cheese, onion, mayo and mustard. The have an amazing list of more sophisticated selections, there is not a bad one in the list. The French fries are crisp... More

This has been my go to burger place for quite some time....These handmade burgers, each with a different theme and unique flavor, will renew your love of burgers. For the ultimate accompaniment, the unbelievably delicious shakes and floats (try the banana) will thoroughly convince you that counting calories at a time like this is utterly futile since you will be...

One of the best burgers ever! Great selection and always consistent in the quality of meat. Very casual place to visit during a visit to the desert.

It's just a great casual burger place. I've been going here for 3 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. Fantastic selection of burgers, sides and amazing shakes. Perfect if you just want to grab a bite yourself, bring a date, or bring the whole family. The only drawback is that they close at 8:00pm.

My wife & I have eaten here on numerous occasions. The Burgers are always good, meaning just prepared. The menus specializes in just good old inventive "hamburgers". The fries are also great and there are 2 kinds...regular and sweet potato. The names and explanation of each of the Burgers are a treat to read. You will like them, but it... More

Description
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!
