LP and I were driving home one day and she told me about this place called Smashburger, which we were just passing & said it was an amazing place for burgers.
I’d never even heard of it before. I kept seeing them on Twitter and decided to take a leap of faith and see if they wanted to work with me.
Success, they did!
Becca from Lola Red PR met us right as we walked in and gave us the rundown of the menu. Depending on what state you live in you will find a menu item that fits with your location. Here in MN they have the twin cities Smashburger. See if yours has been localized!
Smashburger opened in Colorado and their signature burger is the colorado Smashburger: Grilled, fresh mild chilies, melted cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a chipotle bun. Doesn’t that sound yummy?
So after you choose your burger, it’s time to try out their Smashsides. I had the Haystack Onions. Oh man were they good! I also tried their french fries, which were awesome as well. I didn’t realize LP’s husband had gotten Smash Fries or I would’ve tried them, too! One of the delish items on the Smashsides menu was the fried pickles! Hello salty, fried heaven!
If you’re looking at eating healthy, there are chicken menu items and heaping salad options. We saw a guy sitting at one of the booths get a salad and it looked massive!
There’s a kids menu that has a good selection and is reasonably priced for this establishment. The kids have the options of grilled cheese, chicken strips, kids Smashburger, or a kids Smashdog.
When you get to the beverage selection, you might be surprised at what Smashburger has to offer. First of all, there’s the Haagen-Dazs shakes and malts. I tried the chocolate and it was every bit as good as you’d expect.
I do have a warning for you. Make that two warnings. First, grab A LOT of napkins because eating these fresh burgers is messy business. They should come with bibs for their customers.
Secondly, go hungry and realize your eyes are bigger than your stomach! It’s worth going back a few times to try everything than trying the food everyone else is eating (which is what I did). I liked everything so much my belly was aching when I got home! It was good eatin’!
Here’s a bit of 411 about Smashburger from their site:
“We start with 100% Angus Beef, smashed, seared and seasoned on the grill, placed on a butter-toasted artisan bun and topped with the highest-quality cheeses, freshest produce and condiments. A place where you can get a 1/3 or 1/2 pound burger with one of our great recipes or you can create your own. A place that is close to home and affordable. Where the energy is comfortable and relaxed. Where the food is served to you quickly and on a plate - not in a bag. -- smashburger is the better way.”
