Summary: Great Burger! Very good quality meat cooked perfectly. Lettuce, tomatoes and pickles were fresh. The portions are generous. #19: Avocado BLT Burger. Highly recommend this Burger. Now I'm not one with a big appetite and if I had only complaint about this place it's that the portions were big. As I mentioned above the meat was really good quality... More

We had wedge salads (huge!), burgers and sweet potato fries. I had a turkey burger and it was great, very juicy and flavorful definitely NOT a frozen patty like most restaurants serve. A bit pricey for the location, it's in a strip mall . But they have full service wait staff. Good beers, but not a good wine list.

I had been here about 5 years ago and forgot how great it is. Nothing like a fresh burger with just the right fixings. Judging by all the awards on the wall many share my thoughts. Had burgers , a malt and onion rings all was great. I won't lose this place for 5 years again, will be part of... More

Went for lunch today and the burger was fantastic! It was so big, I could hardly get my mouth around it. It had a huge piece of meat, blue cheese, crispy fried onions, bacon, lettuce and it was juicy. My friend had a different burger but the same size. Then we each had a small fry and small onion ring.... More

Visited Grill-A-Burger on a recent trip after reading the reviews. Maybe it was my mood or sunburn but I just cant say that I was all that impressed. First, the burgers are huge, which Im sure is part of the appeal. But for my husband there was so much going on on his burger he could not taste the beef.... More

You must give it a try! Plenty of options to customize your own. Fries are awesome too! You won't go home hungry! Casual dining with good beer selection.

We had no idea the vast selection of their menu. It's pretty impressive. My friend and I had a hotdog with a fried egg in it. Delicious!!! Their tri-fries were yum. Burgers appeared great. My husband really liked his. No complaints here. I dont think you could go wrong.

Went to this restaurant based on the reviews, and in my opinion, they are way off base. The hamburgers were mediocre and that's being complementary. The most enjoyable item was the avocado fries. I have had a better hamburger at Dennys.

Highly recommended place. Great food. Everything is ala carte though so not cheap. My boyfriend had a beer, I had a water. 2 burgers, one shared fry, and a salad, $46. We say it's worth it though!👍😀

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!
