Frickleburgers, the first burger joint on our Best Burgers in Palm Springs list, was definitely a hit. Another couple joined us on the quest and we headed down the hill to enjoy a Friday evening on the town. We fed the dogs an early dinner and headed to Yucca Valley to meet up and carpool the remaining hour of the drive.
As we drove along Hwy 111 in Cathedral City we looked for the sign. We had the address but when the vehicle is driving 40 mph you have to look hard to find it. Hubby spotted the sign first and there it was, tucked away in a strip mall, between a Dollar Tree and a taco shop.
A wonderful young man, Geff, greeted us at the door and then made sure we understood how the checklist menu works and made us feel right at home. We had pre-printed our checklists, but he showed us that there were plenty of checklists and pencils at the tables for our use if we needed them. Geff was the definition of customer service and made our experience that much better. We found a table and perused the check list and and began choosing which burgers we would try. And the best part, share. When you have good friends to enjoy the quest with you get to sample more items on the menu without looking like a pig.
The menfolk contemplated The Big Nasty and who would order it.
Menfolk...contemplating The Big Nasty
After ordering they brought us complimentary glasses of cucumber and lemon flavored water. Wow, was that a nice treat! Lightly flavored and very refreshing to sip while we waited for our dinner.
The sides came out first, each with a container of their homemade blue cheese dressing. I don’t much care for blue cheese, but it was light and good.
Finally, our burgers came out one by one.
These were heavy duty, old world burgers. I customized the Fricklburger with cheese, jalapenos, lettuce and chopped bacon. Hubby had the Big Nasty, no bun and a brat and a burger, chilli and cheese. The Giddy Gunter was a chicken schnitzel with a fried egg and mushrooms. The Country Comfort burger included melted cheddar, BBQ sauce, red onion, tomato, shredded iceberg, and an onion ring.
Sectioned off and ready for sharing.
After dividing them up, we decided all were very good, very heavy and we were waddling when we left. After we had to walk around a few stores to walk off some of the food before the long drive home, but definitely worth it. Probably a good thing it is so far away.
We’ll definitely go back. But not until after we try the rest of the places on our list. Be sure to stay tuned!!!
