There are also some eateries which are only open for lunch in Palm Springs so lunchtime is the only time you can enjoy their tasty offerings. Here’s out list of the 9 best places to enjoy lunch in Palm Springs.
At the top of our list is Tyler’s Burgers, an award-winning hamburger joint which is only open for lunch. Tyler’s Burgers is a favorite spot for locals to have lunch in Palm Springs and has been named one of the top 5 Burgers in California.

Rick’s Restaurant is a traditional American diner with a Cuban touch.

There are times when a traditional New York-style deli is what you want for lunch in Palm Springs. Bring your appetite to Sherman’s Deli because the portions are NOT small! The bread is baked on site for your towering sandwich of traditional deli meats including pastrami, corn beef, chicken breast and many others. You can choose from hot or cold sandwiches (the grilled Reuben is my favorite). If you go with a 1/2 sandwich & soup combo, you may have room for a sweet confection from the bakery afterwards like their signature San Jacinto chocolate cake. Sherman’s is located at 401 E Tahquitz Canyon Way in downtown Palm Springs. Sherman’s is open 7-days a week from 7 am – 9pm.
