We had dinner and then lunch the following day because we enjoyed our food so much. The burgers are large and the buns soft. We also ordered an order of fries with cheese and bacon to share. Everything was delicious! My 18 year old loved it so much he begged to eat lunch here the following day. We will definitely... More

The food was incredible! I had been meaning to try this place for some time now, as I have heard great things, but just haven't had the chance. My only disappointment was that I hadn't tried it sooner! Best burger I've had and the service was second to none.

This was actually my 2nd visit. I took back friends to experience these delicious made to order burgers. The fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings are a meal alone. Leave room for their juicy and tasty burgers. Great lean beef and fresh toppings are even better when rinsed down with a thick yummy shake. This has become a "must... More

Dislocation came highly rated by a friend who has eaten there several times. We arrived at about 4:30 on a Thursday night. The place was packed. We had a party of six and although it was cramped the owner or manager we arrange tables so that we can have six of us sitting counter Style looking out the window towards... More

Went to Grill a Burger for dinner, based on Trip Advisor reviews. They have an amazing variety of burgers and sides. I opted for the mushroom burger with Swiss. My husband had the provolone burger. We chose small fries and a cole slaw as sides. Portions are very large. Cole slaw was excellent, as were the fries. Very fresh and... More

After reading reviews, we had to come and check it out ourselves. Glad we did. Burgers are amazingly tasty. The rosemary fries, addicting. Our waitress was wonderful with a great sense of humor which makes this place a fun and relaxing to enjoy great food.

Sidewalk seating, great view, and awesome staff! From start to finish, seated quickly, greeted with a big, upstate NY smile, and just the right amount of attitude to make the place memorable! :) We'll be back.

This is our second review, we have dined here many times but have found the last two times, the food quality was not there and many things were missed on our orders. They are busy and we suspect that that is why they are missing items on the vast menu. We will go again but really hope the details that... More

We dropped in here to have hamburgers and a glass of wine. We also had a 50/50 fries and onion rings combination. The burgers were outstanding. We had a bleu orgasm as well as a Gagagpalooza burger. Both burgers were well worth the money. Both were $10.95, the 50/50 fries & onion rings were $6.95 and a glass of wine... More

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!
