Really good burgers

The burgers and fries here are great!! Just be warned !!** the burgers don't come with fries or a drink** so after a 2 dollar drink and 2 dollar fries it was about 10 bucks a person. But good food.

This place has pretty good burgers and fries. I like to get the black bean burger here. Their smashfries are also very good. The black bean burger has nice slices of avocado on it, and if you get this burger you may want to get a fork as this patty tends to fall apart and out of the bun as... More

Fresh made burgers with loads of toppings. I like the giant burger and get it with a pretzel roll. They have good fries and unlimited beverages.

Never heard of Smashburger but tried it anyway. Went twice - first time had the spinach salad with grilled chicken, it was great. Went again and had to eat the hamburger - it was VERY juicy and the skinny french fries were so addictive, I ordered a second order. I hear the shakes are terrific but I didn't want to... More

Just a couple of blocks from University of Colorado Hospital on Colfax Ave. in Denver/Aurora, is a strip center with Smashburger located within. DELICIOUS food. The hamburger with its special Smashburger sauce was one of my favorites ever. The Smashburger fries were covered with olive oil, rosemary, and garlic....fantastic! The Hagaan-Das milk shake....oh, my! The food was delivered to the... More

This is the first time we had ever heard of Smashburger but we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. It is a great high end burger joint for a fair price. They make your burger when you order it and the way you want it and what you want on it. The fries are fresh... More

The burgers get about a 6.5 on 1 to 10 scale. Folks there were friendly efficient. Atmosphere is lacking, the basement is hard to overcome.

The title says it all. The sweet potato fries are amazing. When I used to live in Denver and Aurora, Smash Burger was a frequently visited restaurant with both friends and family. I used to love getting both the guacamole chicken burger and sweet potato fries. Excellent restaurant quality food at a super fast speed.

Excellent service, great food. Love the set up on the inside as well. Smashburger is delicious!! It was a little hard to find at first because we got confused over the address but totally happy with our visit. Highly recommend it for a quick burger stop!

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...
