For me it started with and is all about the avocado fries. Pardon the blurry picture but my hand was quivering with joy. They have burgers, dogs, salads, and everything is different and outstanding. This last trip I got a mini burger with bacon, mushrooms...More

I eat here frequently with friends as I live near by. GAB specializes in burgers but also offers specialty hot dogs, great salads, a variety of gourmet french fries and authentic milkshakes, malts, and floats. The food is wonderful, fresh, and worth every penny. Casual...More

Obviously, you are going to have a burger, but you must try the California avocado fries, delicious! The burgers are cooked to perfection, but the fries and onion rings could be better.

Good burger, but not insanely juicy good. It was very good and service moved things along. Very good overall and the choice of Burger toppings really makes this place stand out.

Tried this place because it was on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. What a tremendous disappointment. Burger bun was dry, meat overcooked (strangely, it was also grey in color, no sear...don't know how they did that), toppings tasteless. Fries (on the menu as half-order serving 2-4,...More

We love this place. The burgers are not cheap but they are the best. I think what stands out to me is the quality of the ingredients. I have had burgers in other places that also have great toppings but not a tasty hamburger patty....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!
