For decades, Cathedral City wasn’t exactly known as a foodie haven. The city was littered with fast food joints and chain restaurants. But, the times they are a changin’ and now some great mom and pop joints are operating in the city – including Tony’s Burgers which is serving up some delicious burgers for lunch and dinner.

Now, normally this is where I would start to type things to explain the place and the burgers, but I think a better place to start is just to show you one.

Tony's Burgers

Looks pretty good yeah?  Well, it is!  That is “The Love Hater”  – one of the many specialty burgers served up at Tony’s Burgers.  It’s a burger patty served with extra Roasted Garlic, Grilled Onions, Roasted Red Pepper, and Boursin Cheese. Then there is the Lettuce, Tomatoes, Pickles Chips, and Garlic Aioli all on a Sourdough Bun.  And check this out: it’s under $10.

And this isn’t some nothing-burger, this is the real deal.  I mean, look!:

Tony’s Burgers seriously has a ton of burger options – but that’s not all. They also have huge gourmet hot dogs, salads, chicken burgers, and even breakfast.

Plus, what would a burger be without sides? Tony’s has Cajun Fries, Garlic Fries, Truffle Fries and non-fries things like onion rings, avocado fries, and coleslaw.

The place is nothing fancy, but it’s not a dump either. There’s plenty of room to sit inside or, when the temp allows for it, an outside patio too. There’s also a bar area with plenty of TVs if you are looking for a spot to have a beer and a burger while you watch the game.

Owner Tony Cuevas has brought his 25 years of experience to the place and developed a really solid menu consisting of some of the best burgers in the Coachella Valley.

Enjoy Tony’s Burgers!
