There are more burgers on the menu than any burger restaurant I've ever visited and they are all good. Also they have hard ice cream milk shakes that are outstanding. I try to make this a regular visit.

First time visit for lunch, I had the classic cheeseburger, very good, fresh and well cooked. They seem to have a lot of regulars as everyone seemed to know each other. The staff are super friendly and come across to be very happy in their jobs, a lot of smiles and laughter. Great place, I will be back.

Great burgers, service and beer. I know this brief but verbose and loquacious isn't necessary when describing Grill a Burger.

Good burger, not the best ever, but very good. Great staff, I believe the owner was the one that helped us, she was great. I ordered a double which was a bit too much that day.

We decided that burgers would fill the bill for a latish dinner for kids and adults. Grill-a-Burger (Gorilla Burger!) did it. The burgers were thick, juicy and perfectly prepared as ordered. There was a wide variety of options and we tried several. Every one was a delicious success. From my plain - lettuce, tomato, onion on a nicely toasted roll,... More

You can always count on having an absolutely delicious burger cooked exactly as you desire at Grill-A-Burger! The selection is outstanding and the half & half basket of fries and onion rings satisfies everyone. Shakes & Malts are yummy and not to be missed. Its "high season" right now so it can be busy but the wait is usually not... More

We are frequent visitors to Palm Desert. And, when we do visit, a trip to Grill-A-Burger is always on the agenda. Quite simply, it is the best place for a burger around. Many have heard of California's In and Out burgers. I think Grill-A-Burger is even better. The burgers are fantastic and they make a large variety of burgers. The... More

We loved the food, the place, the service . . . Everything was perfect. We had a vegetarian (me) and someone with Celiac Disease (my son) and even so we all had wonderful huge burgers and garlic fries to die for. Everyone there was incredibly nice. We felt like we were being welcomed into a family! I just wish we... 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!
