If you are looking for a great hamburger in the Greater Palm Springs Area, you are in luck. There are quite a few burger joints in the Coachella Valley serving up delicious beef goodness between two buns just about every day.

Here are the 10 best burger joints in the Coachella Valley (in no particular order):

Tyler’s Burgers

This downtown Palm Springs hotspot has been serving up hamburgers for over twenty years now.  Their menu is simple – which is a good thing, since it lets them concentrate on what they do best: make awesome hamburgers!  And they even take credit cards now too!

Tyler’s Burgers, 149 S Indian Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, (760) 325-2990

Eureka!

Eureka! Indian Wells is known for having a great selection of whiskey and beer – but, they are probably best known for their great hamburgers.  Lots of different types to choose from including the Jalapeño Egg Burger, Fresno Fig Burger, and a delicious Bone Marrow Burger.

Eureka!, 74985 Highway 111, Palm Desert*, (760) 834-7700

Grill-a-Burger

I was surprised to see Grill-A-Burger has such an extensive salad section on the menu because, once you set foot inside, it is damn near impossible not to order one of their delicious hamburgers.

Thirty different beef burgers to choose from complete with all kinds of different toppings and buns.  There are also mini-burgers and non-beef options plus over ten different types of hot dogs.

Babe’s has been serving up tasty barbecue and beer they brew in-house at the River in Rancho Mirage for over a decade.  They also serve up a delicious burger using 80/20 ground New York strip loin that is always fresh, never frozen.

In-N-Out

Look.  You can not ever have a best hamburger list in Southern California without including In-N-Out.  It is just not possible.  Ever.  Under any circumstances.

In-N-Out Burger has locations in Cabazon, Thousand Palms, La Quinta, and Indio.

Tony’s Burgers

Tony’s serves up tasty six ounce Black Angus chuck hamburgers that Tony himself mastered while cooking them up for over 25 years.

The menu has quite an extensive selection of hamburgers to choose from as well as hot dogs, salads, and sandwiches and they do it all well – which must be why, with over 200 reviews, they have 4.5 stars on Yelp.

State Fare Bar + Kitchen

The State Fair Prime Burger at The Ritz Carlton is going to cost you a little bit more than you might be accustomed to for a burger ($20) – but, if you are going to splurge on a hamburger make it this one.

This hamburger comes topped with hopscotch cheddar, onion-bacon jam, aioli, and arugula and served on a pretzel bun.

Great prices.  Delicious burgers.  Big portions.  Low prices.

What’s not to love about that?

Boy’s Hamburgers, 68100 Ramon Rd., Cathedral City, (760) 321-7757

Habit Burger

Habit only recently opened up a couple spots in the Coachella Valley, but they have been slingin’ their hamburgers since the first Habit Burger opened up in Santa Barbara in 1969.

Just be sure not to order a “hamburger” as these are charburgers!! Get them as a single or double them up.  You can also get them topped with various items like avocado and bacon.

Habit Burger Grill, 73393 Highway 111, Palm Desert / 79174 Highway 111, La Quinta, (760) 564-6900

Fleming’s Steakhouse

Every night at Fleming’s, they serve up their Prime Burger – topped with Wisconsin cheddar cheese, peppered bacon, lettuce, and tomato – in the bar for just eight bucks between 5 and 7 pm.

That’s a pretty good deal on a pretty great cheeseburger!

    Ok, so, not a bad list. Haven’t tried Tony’s (how did I miss this place??), but if you’re including hi-priced burgers you need to add Zin American Bistro’s Bistro Burger in PS, both The Bistro and POM burgers at Fantasy Springs Casino, and Zobo & Meester in Cathedral City. Habit reminds me Fatburger when it was a good burger before it was bought by the corporation opened the FB in RM, which now sucks.

  • Ricardo

    Been to 8/10 of the mentioned places and of all of them, Tony’s in cat city, Tyler’s in Palm Springs, and Eureka are by far the best! The Fig burger at Eureka’s and the Frankenstein at Tony’s are ridiculous! Such a good list!

    No one mentioned George’s on Ramon road. Absolutely the best in the valley.

  • Rob

    I’ve been to all but one of them. Tony’s is Great, but if you are looking for the best tasting burger, then Georges on Ramon in Cat City takes them all down. No fluff, no ketchup, no fancy ingredients, just the best tasting “burger” hands down in my opinion. All great places though.

  • Paul

    Pretty good list, add Sullivan’s bar burger. Pacifica has a great burger as well
