This was our first trip to Smashburger and it was a hit with the family. Not only were the burgers food, the service was excellent. Gabriele took our order and she was so pleasant and helpful. Definitely would recommend stopping here.

Look for Zach at the register as he will help you especially if this is your first time. We tried plain hamburger with lettuce and tomato on an egg bun. It was very good. You can get a classic which will have cheese, seasoning ...etc. We ordered plain French fries, they are thin and very good. You can get their... More

We needed a quick dinner meal but didnt want fast food. The classic combo was very good. The fries are unique. Their twist is to cook them with herbs not just fry them in vegetable oil. Nice change from a chain restaurant.

Stopped here for lunch and the place was lined up to the door. Fortunately the line moved reasonably well. My made to order burger came out perfectly and was absolutely delicious! Also tried the smash fries but which would have been good, but they came out cold.

This was my first time eating at Smashburger. I was amazed at how tasty the burgers are and the smash fries are the best.

This was our first visit to Smashburger and we were pleasantly surprised! The burgers are excellent and available with a variety of toppings and rolls. The Smash fries are tossed in olive oil and rosemary and they were yummy!! The buffalo fries were far too salty, though. We finished up with their milkshakes and thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

Had heard of these but never visited. They have a variety of burgers, chicken sandwiches and salads. Got the classic smash burger. It was very tasty. Average size with good garnishes. Fries were very skinny which I did not like as much but my wife did. Place looked relatively new but our booth table was worn and very cramped. The... More

1st time trying Smashburger, very similar to Steak N Shake. The kids adored it...I was impressed with the FAST service, friendliness of the server. We stopped in 15 minutes to close the cashier was a bit rude, I almost didn't place our order, but the server was super nice and accommodating...made our first visit a pleasant one. Will definitely try... More

The restaurant was clean and spacious between tables. The burgers and fries, etc are priced separate. They had a great choices for shakes. Service was friendly. Yet the hamburgers did not succeed of any place. Average. I really wouldn't go back, because nothing there popped off the menu.

We had heard that the Smashburger rivaled Five Guys, but we do not agree. Given a choice, the burger here is just average compared to Five Guys. Although this place may get the nod on toppings, the star attraction should be the beef patty. Although this one was good, it does not have that old-fashioned burger flavor of the other... More
