Tyleriffic – Best Fast Causal Burgers

Tyler’s Burgers in Palm Springs has been a well-known haunt in Palm Springs for locals and visitors since 1996.  I have no idea why I’ve waited so long to visit this place, by today was finally the day. A terrific outdoor setting in Palm Spring’s historic downtown Plaza shopping area, Tyler’s offers terrific fast-casual fare. We tried two of their burgers with an order of fries to share. The traditional Cheese Burger was moist, perfectly cooked and loaded with lettuce, pickles, and onions on a wonderfully soft bun. Yum. tyler burger palm springs

Like the burger you expect at a great a family picnic. Fresh ingredients, a generous patty, and a simple presentation in a paper lined basket. The Turkey Burger had similar traits. Again, moist and delicious. What a value at $7.50 with full table service. tyler burgers palm springs

We were lucky enough to be seated in Michelle’s area. Greeted with a warm smile and lots of menu suggestions. Michelle was attentive, engaging, and spot-on to make sure our iced teas were bottomless. We also ordered a small order of fries.  Crisp, nicely salted, and hot out-of-the kitchen. Delicious and only $3.50 for a portion that was so generous that we had enough to take home for an afternoon snack.

I honestly think that you can’t beat Tyler’s for a quick lunch that is a terrific alternative to flavorless fast-food and over-priced pretentious gourmet burger restaurants. And, again, ask for Michelle if you are looking for super service.

Truffle Smashed Potato Recipe

4 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes

Truffle Salt

Truffle Oil

A quick and easy exotic side dish that is sure to impress. Preheat a toaster or conventional oven to 400 degrees. Take four medium potatoes (about the size of a goose egg) and microwave them on high for four minutes. Immediately remove and completely wrap each separately in aluminum foil. Let rest for 10 minutes. While still in the foil, smash the potatoes in the foil until about 1 inch thick. Take a small baking pan and line with foil.

Drizzle a few dashes of truffle oil on the foil where each potato will be placed to roast. Carefully remove the flattened potatoes from the foil and lay on the oiled pan. If they break, you can push them back together. Drizzle each smashed potato with a little more oil and sprinkle with truffle salt. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes until golden on top. You can serve plain or with a dollop of sour cream and pinch of fresh chives. Makes four servings.
