Great menu of burgers and big selection of beer. Full bar available. Service was very fast and efficient. Priced $10-15 but huge burgers and toppings. My only issue is that this is a burger joint. Fries should be in the plate, not extra charge.

Want a great burger? You can find it here. They have so many different ones, that you can't miss. The onion rings are excellent and why not a great malt too? Cute jungle decor. Saw many to-go orders so popular with locals. Rather noisy but it's a casual place.

A little hole in the wall, HAPPY PLACE. When my girlfriends and I need a Happy Day, this is the place for a Happy Meal. When the family wants a quick and good meal, we drive the 20 minutes. Great burgers with all types of toppings and extraordinary buns to all to the yumminess. Lettuce wraps if you want to... More

We went to this place because we read a review that it was rated as the "best burger place". While it was a good cheeseburger, it was bit over-priced, probably because of the rating, and we can honestly say, we've had better burgers at restaurants near our home.

Terrific selection of burgers. Juicy and cooked perfectly. Great fries and salads also. Some outdoor sitting available. The best burgers around!

This is a little hole in the wall burger place but it is fantastic. Good choice of burgers including veggie, and mini-burgers for those who might want a smaller meal. If they still take reservations, you might want to make them if you will be there during a busy dinner hour. We were lucky to get a table at about... More

Great food, service and price. The food was fresh and made to order, this is not your regular burger place! Salads are big and fresh and plenty of sides.

Thought we would have a burger and a beer.....checked Trip Advisor....and drove to Grill a Burger. We were disappointed. It was certainly crowded giving us a good sense but it was a bit dirty giving us pause. The beer was cold, the menu good and the service ok. Ultimately it was the burger that let us down. In spite of... More

Our new favourite burger place in the desert. Even better than we expected. Great toppings. Especially loved their black pepper burger. Table service was excellent too.

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!
