This food is seriously tastey
The old Hamburger Mary's. As if the name wasn't reason enough to check out this joint, their food is something else


    • Closed in October 2014
      Will reopen in February 2015 as "Serious Food". No idea what it will be like.

      Less gay than might be expected
      Ironically, both Palm Springs and the franchise Hamburger Mary's are known for overt homosexuality, yet this is merely a standard hamburger-based restaurant equally suitable for "family" or families. Although you'll find more of a homo-element here than, say, iHop, it's nowhere near the level at gay-focused places like Blame It On Midnight, Wang's, or Rick's.

      Typical breakfast - OK place. One hot waiter.
      Friends wanted to go to Hamburger Mary's for breakfast - sure, why not? I haven't been for several years (I think it was a chicken quesadilla). Anyway, breakfast is typical. I guess there were more choices but we weren't given a full breakfast menu, so who knows what else they had. Food was decent. Our friends knew the bartender, so it was fun when sat with us here and there. Waiter (not ours) walking around was hot and most of our table was commenting about him. All in all, not bad. I would return to try other things without any expectations (yet).

      Good Time and Great Service
      Recently ate at HM. The food was excellent and the service was good. The prices were normal for PS.

      Not horrible, byt not good!
      It was just another burger. Nothing special for the high prices. I won't be going back anytime soon.

      Just Say Hamburger
      I have been to Hamburger Mary's in Palm Springs about four times. True, the service varies wildly from very poor to good -- never excellent. The food also varies in preparation and flavor. My experience indicates that you should just order a hamburger, nothing else on the menu.

      Overpriced for bad food, service unfriendly
      A warm club salad, mediocre chicken sandwich, and a $12 5 oz Cosmo- need I say more? Oh yeah, burgers and sandwiches start at $11. I used to love going to the one in san Diego, but never again. This was the worst place I've been in palm springs. I recommend bongo jonny's on arenas!

      Typical Hamburger Mary's
      To bad the chain ran into so many problems and closed many locations. This one is very busy with a good crowd. The food is familiar to all who have been to a Mary's before. Mostly Gay crowd. Slow but good service. Only problem is the wait on weekends.
