We believe this isn’t an easy conclusion, but we’ve narrowed down, 7 of the Best Burger Joints in the inland empire of Temecula!
Burgers & Beer
Burgers & Beer started with the vision in 1985 of “providing the residents of the Imperial Valley with a comfortable and casual location, where they could have a great tasting, high-quality burger, accompanied by a refreshing, ice-cold beer, all at an affordable price.” The Temecula Valley location attracts locals, passer buyers, sports guys, kid parties, date nights & much more! Their diverse menu can please just about anyone’s liking, but their extensive list of over 30 burgers is what’s truly impressive!
In the mood for a Shrimp Burger? Burger & Beers has it. Mushrooms, fried egg, or Ortega chilis on a burger? They got you covered. Or maybe you’re more in the mood for a Brie or Fig Burger… You can try that too! Most of the hot and juicy burgers can be ordered as 1/3 or 1/2 1b; you also have the option of a 1lb, Tom DeRosier (a resident of El Centro, CA) burger, cooked to your preference! This local burger joint is a must try for whatever the occasion may be. You may even find yourself adding this to your local favorite go-to spots!

The Last Stop Shoppe
The Last Stop Shoppe is a favorite neighborhood spot for locals wanting good food, beer, and company!

Make sure you try one of their ten different beers on tap to wash down all the juicy goodness your flavor packed burger will bring. Word on the street is that their beers may be some of the coldest you’ve ever had, which pairs almost too perfectly with their 100% grass-fed meat on either a pretzel, brioche, Hawaiian, white or wheat bun. The owner Bruce truly has a passion for serving the community with great food and great service; on Friday’s you can event get $2.50 pints of beer! So if you are a self-proclaimed burger connoisseur, you definitely need to give this burger joint a shot.

With a name like Fatburger, you may be envisioning a monstrosity of a burger; your imagination may be right! Founder, Louvie Yancey, wanted to get across the idea of a “burger with everything in it; a meal in itself.” With humble beginnings starting in 1947, as a three-stool hamburger stand, to long days and sleepless nights catering to late-night clubgoers and celebrity burger buffs since the 50’s, Lovie’s custom-made burgers have been a staple in any town Fatburger enters.
With over 200 Fatburgers in 19 countries, the Temecula location now has it’s own loyal following of burger buffs. Only the freshest ingredients and traditional cooking methods are used (you won’t find heat lamps or microwaves in their stands). Well-known for their fresh-never-frozen, lean beef, chicken, turkey and veggie burgers & sandwiches, their hand-scooped, real ice cream milkshakes, homemade-from-scratch onion rings and their build-your-own-burger experience; this burger joint is a must try!
