Very good burgers, amazing milkshakes

Loved that you could custom order your burger, even the size of the patty! The rosemary and garlic fries are too greasy, but the fries are still good (so order regular fries instead). The malt milkshakes are a must!!!

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!

This place has really tasty burgers, and you can have any burger made with a chicken breast instead, which is just as tasty! They have great toppings and specials with great combinations. They also have a bunch of sauces that I didn't see on the menu, but they gave me samples. The fries are good, the sweet potato fries are... More

My first experience with Smashburger was a very positive one at the restaurant at Quebec & E. 35th Ave., Denver. I order the Avocado Ranch Black Bean Burger and was quite surprised. It was incredible delicious on a multi-grain bun. Also splurged calories and ordered a Hand-Spun Haagen-Dasz Chocolate Malt. Prices, compared to other buyers/malts was so much more reasonable...

Remembrance of a visit on previous trip to Denver was of the same on this visit. Food fresh and great. Staff courteous, good food, and friendly atmosphere. It does not get any better than this! Try the milkshakes...they are like the good old day fountain style!
