“I don’t even know how to get all of this into my mouth!” I blurted out in the middle of Tyler’s Burgers.
While on a Modernism Week double decker bus tour in Palm Springs, our guide, Kurt, highly recommended Tyler’s for an “excellent burger” You don’t have to mention that to me twice. One hour later I entered this small, yet lively hamburger mecca. I usually like my Cheeseburger PLAIN w/ bacon & American cheese, however I was enticed to add lettuce when I saw a pile of fresh iceberg being prepped. I know, I’m a food dare-devil. NOT! Hard to believe, but this was the 1st time in my life that i ever ate lettuce on a burger. I’m serious. #SuperTaster
-Avoid Tyler’s at rush hour or be prepared to patiently await your food for 30 minutes.
-Best be very hungry.
-The prices are definitely justified by what they will serve you.
-Everything, yes EVERYTHING about my meal was perfection!
-Cash only. Come prepared, you’re gonna wanna splurge on a milkshake here too!
-Even though they had a bazillion people ordering food, the entire staff was super friendly & looked happy to be a part of the madness!
Not only did I get to spend 2 days viewing mid-century marvels from the inside out, I had the pleasure of visiting the Palm Springs Air Museum. It was tremendously cool since I am just 10 hours into flight school. Here are some shots from my adventure, post perfect Cheeseburger Date!
Maybe my flight instructor, Brad Kluck @EncoreFlightAcademy will give me extra credit!

If you must deviate from the Cheeseburger, I highly recommend this unusual restaurant in Los Feliz, CA. The Tam O’ Shanter. In fact it is the only place I will eat Prime Rib. Their cream corn is addictive and the whole experience is very entertaining! +++++ They have a Surf & Turf situation for 2 ($89) happening in September! I promise you next month will not end without me eating there! They are affiliated with Lawrys Steakhouse. It sounds familiar because you have their seasoning in your kitchen! :) Brig
P.S. After this meal you will be unable to move. Dessert, even though included, will not get finished. You will have to unbutton your pants, so ladies, where a stretchy skirt or loose dress. TRUST ME!
I think they should have made a tater tot burger…
This won’t be a future Cheeseburger date of mine.
Woman dislocates jaw trying to eat massive burger
A Liverpool, UK woman learned that eating a triple-patty burger comes with risk of injury when she dislocated her jaw at a local restaurant — but after leaving the hospital, she said she’d return for another taste of the burger. … Continue reading
I rounded up Indy, our dog and headed to Palm Springs. Idyllwild was our first stop. Cheeseburger date! Went to The Little Chef in the Woods. I saw their website first. Very fancy. First let me start by telling you how welcoming they were. They kept my water and a bowl for Indy, full. Extremely wonderful service, however, I was there for a great Cheeseburger. After 2 hours in the car, I was hungry. I got my usual- Cheeseburger- meat, american cheese & bacon.
When it arrived, the crinkle fries were a huge bonus, but my plate was sprinkled with parsley. Argh! & an orange slice? Odd. Unfortunately my burger was more like Cheeseburger jerky. It was tough and chewy. Fries were perfect, but I almost napped on my plate because they were playing this really super mellow fairy music, sorry I don’t know how else to call it. Lots of harps. This Cheeseburger was on the low end for me. I still ate it, but was bummed out. Until we went to Nomad Ventures, a hiking/outdoor sport store and they had shoes for Indy. The pavement in Palm Springs, even at night, was going to be too hot for his little feet. Here’s what happened when the shoes got put on in Nomad..
After about 5 minutes he was walking fine.
Then there were some crazy roads to get from Idyllwild to Palm Springs. 109 degrees greeted us when we arrived at The Saguaro at 4:30p.m. Hotel was really great and they allowed dogs for no extra charge!
Over the next day and a half we drove allover Palm Springs with a Mid-Century Modern map and captured the beautiful homes on film and by photograph.
Here’s the video for you to enjoy!
Left Palm Springs yesterday at 11:30a.m. still dreaming of making the perfect Cheeseburger a reality. Then it hit me- Dog Haus in Pasadena!
2 hours & 2 dinosaurs later(Cabezon), I was finally wrapping my mouth around a Juicy Lucy! It’s a hamburger patty with a pocket of American cheese in the center.
I’d like to rename it -Hot Gooey Louie after the explosion of cheese i experienced when I cut it in half! Insane.
The patty was held by 4 Hawaiian rolls cut in half. Okay- that’s a HUGE burger. I had tater tots with it and was finally satisfied! My Juicy Lucy had a lot of seasoning to offset the sweetness of the bun. Not only was the food excellent, but the entire restaurant is wildly delicious, including the staff! The menu offers of course, hot dogs & more 10 ways to Sunday, including old school bottled coca cola and I even saw Yoo-Hoo! Oh and don’t get me started about the Ms.PacMan classic arcade machine in the corner… Well, see for yourself! Dog Haus Menu. :) Brig
