Maybe my eating habits have improved, but Grill-A-Burger doesn't get me as excited as it used to. Sure, the burger and fries are still large and tasty but I don't crave it like I once did. Maybe it's me. Find out for yourself.

Definitely a must try for foodies and burger lovers! Not your standard burger fare- exceeds the expectations of simply "a good burger joint" . I suggest being adventurous in your choice, it's well worth it!

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.

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!
