Excellent burger and fries

I was staying in Denver for a few nights and wanted a good burger. I had a look around for local burger places on the internet and read good things about Smashburger so thought I would give it a whirl. Good decision. The burger was tasty, the fillings very fresh, the bun patty good and the fries... read more

We were in town for Comic Con this year and wandered down here from the hotel and we were pleasantly surprised! I had a black bean burger with some sort of spicy toppings (I can't remember what of course) but I'm not even kidding when I say it was the best black bean burger I've ever had. It wasn't too...

We don't have Smashburger where I live, so I was happy to have the chance to try one. I had a great burger and fries - I rate this as one of the best burger chains. The Denver Smashburger was staffed by teens who ran a fun but well organized resturaunt. Plus, you can get a beer so top that.

Stopped in for a quick bite while I was at a conference, and I thought the food was amazing. The burgers were fresh and delicious, and the fries were amazing! Definitely one of the better quick burger joints I've ever visited, and the service was phenomenal. The guy who waited in me was one of the friendliest people I've ever... More

Their smash fires are the bomb. I was in Denver for three days and ate smash fires each day. Their hamburgers are good also. But those fries love'em.

Ordered the Avocado Club Burger and Smash Fries. The food was good enough, but the time to get the food was longer than I expected. Smash fries which are tossed in olive oil, garlic & rosemary are good, but I think they would have been better had I been able to taste them hot.

We ate here mid afternoon on a Saturday. It wasn't very busy. The guy at the register was super friendly! The food was amazing. We've eaten here before but it was better this time. Fresh burgers and tasty fried pickles. The restaurant was a little dirty when we first entered but there was a guy going around cleaning up the... More

Seriously delicious burger with green chiles on it. Everyone enjoyed their food and I could NOT stop eating the green chile fries. Heavenly! The staff was friendly and helpful and we had at least three staff members come by our table to ask if we needed anything. This is a great place to stop for a bite while downtown!
