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!

Yes....this is the BEST Burger in town. But that's not all...they have great chicken sandwiches too....and the fries? Out of sight. I like the garlic fries the best. Plus they have kick-a$$ sauces...like the 'Kick-A$$ Ketchup'. And...and...they serve a nice Arnold Palmer. We love it.

Thanks Dennis C! You're makin' us blush… (but we like that!). We hope that we offer enough of a variety of meat choices that would appeal to as many as we could, so we're happy you mentioned the choice of chicken (either breast or hand formed, made in house ground chicken patties). You can substitute any of our creative burgers for either chicken, turkey or even veggie patties! They all go nicely with the Arnold Palmer too! See you soon!!

We keep coming back here over and over again! Best burgers in town, especially the turkey burger. Large in size and super tasty. Add some fries and onion rings and you are set. Staff is great,nice and friendly. Good selection of beers. Weekends are packed for a good reason.

Cute place but if you're coming here it better be for a burger. Huge selection of burgers with all sorts of toppings to chose from which makes it difficult to pick just one. They also have hand spun milk shakes and good fries. The service wasn't that good on the night we were there and the place wasn't that crowded. Once again...you come here for the tasty burgers.

The burger was good, the onion rings were outstanding but to call this the best restaurant in Palm Desert is a bit of an insult to some very nice restaurants. If you want a very good burger, I would say it was very good but it is still just a burger joint.

Their burgers come in a nicely toasted roll with 6oz of burger...delicious beef, classi taste. We shared basket of Avacado fires and rings for table. The avacado fries are light and crispy and delicious. My burger ame with blue cheese...#22? Husband opted ofr the Hottest of the hot. He claimed not too spicy but noticed he was silent and clammy. twelve year old polished off the double cheese. 12)Z beef. :) Would make this a night out with kids every visit to Palm desert.
