Lunch or dinner can't be beat. Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, hot dogs and chicken. Order the large fries. Served in a special basket and the burger selection is amazing!

They have taken hamburger making to an art form. I also suggest the fries and onion rings. Take your time and read the ingredients of each

The tons of different burgers have clever names...just reading the menu always makes me laugh. As good as the burgers are, they are a little overpriced and don't EVER get to go orders. Twice we've arrived home and had completely wrong burgers. The staff is friendly but we felt the guy at the counter taking "to go" orders not paying... More

Took the family here after I had raved about their food following my first visit here in May. Family wasn't convinced since I described it to a tee. It's a little mom and pop hole in the wall burger joint with great food. Don't let the outward appearance fool you. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. After eating here... More

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!
