The Palm Desert Burger King has closed

Palm Desert residents are going to have to drive a little further for a flame grilled burger.

The city’s Burger King, on Highway 111 in the Jensen’s shopping center, has closed.

Update: a few of you mentioned that a Burger King recently opened in the Walmart in Palm Desert by the freeway.  So you can get it your way there, if you want. 

A tipster forwarded these photos taken at the site of the former fast food joint, which now has its signs removed and a note posted to the door inviting customers to grab a Whopper at the other Burger King locations in Cathedral City, Bermuda Dunes, and Indio.
