Our ATP reserves were very low after a long flight, public transportation and shopping. Smashburger to the rescue! Staff members were quick and courteous, burgers were delicious!

I have heard of this place but never tried it. Today while walking downtown I couldn't pass it up. Glad I went in. Service was fast--crazy fast. Had my classic burger in like ten min. Crisp lettuce and fresh tomatoes pickle and onions come with it. I also ordered fries which were Fresh and hot too. All with a drink... More

I have to start by saying that I am always on the search for GREAT hamburgers. My wife absolutely loves Smashburger and it is by far her favorite place. I think it is a VERY good hamburger, but I still like Five Guys and a few others better. She also loves their sweet potato fries. I like their normal fries.... More

This is your typical burger joint. Although, it is a good burger. The sweet potato fries are really good as well. We also had milkshakes and they were good. It definitely doesn't rate as something you MUST do but if you want something quick and good, it's a good option. One issue though was we did see a bug (looked... More

I'll start this review by saying that I'm a picky eater and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience here. I've given up ordering plain burgers at chain restaurants because they can never seem to get it right. How hard is it to just give someone meat and a bun? This place I can say was the exception. I ordered... More

I stopped in here while visiting Denver and was blown away at the awesome service and excellent burgers. These things are pure, juicy deliciousness. An Udi's Gluten Free bun is available, a first for me in a restaurant. The manager came by and checked to make sure everything was great, and we felt very welcomed. We left feeling very satisfied...

Mildly overpriced - wish they offered combos. The food quality is good, I always make a stop when I see Smashburger. The only con with this visit is that they messed our order up twice. The person who took our order was obviously sick and then handled our food which kind of grossed us out.

Burger was very good. French fries and onions are very thin. Which means that they cool off very fast. We had the fries with the oil basil very tasty. Service was fast.

I finally went into this joint. Genius. Got the Colorado burger, smothered with fresh jalapeños. Fresh meat properly cooked and on a fresh bun. The onion straws are awesome as well. I will be eating far more of these things, lemme tell ya. Man, they even have beer! Including microbrews.

I had the classic burger with smashfries (Rosemary and herb) with a chocolate malt all for $11. All were very good. They give you a number which you take to your table and within minutes the waitstaff brings you your food. She stated her name then said if I needed anything to let her know. I thought that was cool... More
