Good choices of burgers and chicken sandwiches

Unlike many burger places, they have a good selection of chicken sandwiches too. Basically, they have the same toppings for chicken sandwiches as they do for burgers. They also have a selection of sides, besides plain fries, including fried vegetables.

Food was great for a burger joint. Loved the flavored fries. Had the san diego burger, it was fresh and tasty.

The burgers tasted great and seemed very clean. The place is located in a very nice area with lots of great looking people walking around. The service was decent and everything seemed clean. There is free parking in the rear.

We have been eating at Smash Burger every 4 months or so since it opened a couple of years ago. While it is greasy fast food, every once in a while it was OK and my grandchildren like it. However, it has gradually been going down hill to the point where we have crossed it off our list. A few... More

You can never go wrong with a Smashburger. Truffle mushroom Swiss is my fav. Smash Fries are greasy but yummy! Nice spot to stop mid-shopping day.

The burgers were generous in size as were the French fries. As others have noted, it is not fancy, but does the trick when you want some fast food fixes.

We just had lunch at Smash Burger in Del Mar. I gave the black bean burger a try and my husband had the Smash Burger. We also shared a regular order of their skinny fries. Everything was good, but nothing to rave about. I guess I am saying that I would have no trouble eating here again but with so... More

Really enjoyed our visit. We brought 9 people with 9 different orders. Well worth trying the sweet potato fries, they were really good. Also tried the black bean burger along with regular burgers. All were really good.

Such a nice place to get a quick bite. Delicious burgers and salad. A little noisy but well worse it, since the food is good. I love to sit, relax and do some people watching. Like to go with a friend and just have a nice visit.
