Had a nice lunch at Grill-A-Burger. Lots of choices on the menu and quant cozy seating, including some tables outside. The service was fine as well. Overall just a good all around meal, but I'm not sure I understand such a high ranking for this place. Regardless, would certainly recommend if you are looking for a good burger spot in... More

Cincinnati chili dog had shredded cheese and chili. A true Cincinnati dog has diced onion, too. But this one rates a four on the basis of the meaty sauce and the firm all meat quarter pound hot dog. The male servers were vacant and a bit rude. The lady was attentive and funny.

I had a mini cheese and bacon burger which gave me room for my half of the fries and rings combo, both of which are delicious. My hubby had his regular cheese and bacon burger. I was watching the couple next to me. They ordered a plate of chili cheese fries. Then they had burgers, all of which looked delicious.... More

We found this place through TripAdvisor and thought we would try it. It's a very relaxed diner and child friendly. All of our burgers were cooked to perfection. The garlic fries were amazing! If your looking for quick, tasty and fresh food then come here.

I read about this place in a few spots online and was anxious to see if it measured up in person. YES IT DID!! The burgers are absolutely delicious!! We also shared the California Avocado fries and we all came away wishing they had these back home where we live!! The place was jumping tonight; we had to wait ten... More

I ordered the small bacon blue burger here. It was quite scrumptious. I ordered the small one, expecting the small would be like a small at 5 Guys, which is still very filling. The small was a slider size. I'm glad we split fries for the table or I would have left hungry.

Stopped in for lunch. Our burgers were cooked as requested, were juicy and had really good flavor. We had the Blu job and the old fashioned bacon burger. Bacon cheese fries were a nice add. Plenty for 2. Our service was great. A don't miss location for a burger in Palm Desert.

Best burger in Palm Desert!! French fries are hand cut and delicious. Can be a little wait but well worth it.

You know how sometimes you go to a restaurant and have a really good meal and every time you go back, you can't get past ordering the same item because it is so good? That's what happens to me at Grill-A-Burger. I can't get past their Devil's revenge burger! It has fried Serrano chilies, caramelized chipotle onions, pepper jack cheese,... 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!
