We were wowed

My family had dinner here after the UK game on Sunday, and we were all impressed. The salads wowed us with their presentation, taste and value. The burgers are artefully presented. The fries, especially the smashed fries are tasty, although I am not partial to shoestring style. The service is... read more

My son and I went to the MegaCaverns and did a Zip tour. We have a coupon book, and like to try new places. Even though Smashburgers put us an hour off route we wanted to try it. It was SO worth the detour. We were each able to use the coupon. The place was clean including the Bathrooms !!... More

Smashburger has some delicious options available, including some different side items. Their food is good, service is fairly quick, atmosphere is nice. But for what you're getting, I think the food is a bit too pricey.

I thoroughly enjoyed my bacon cheeseburger and fries! I opted for the larger 1/2 pound "big" burger instead of the regular 1/3 pound version. My sandwich was prepared exactly as I requested and everything arrived at my table fresh and hot. I was so happy with everything that I decided to go ahead and get a chocolate shake on my... More

OK folks... we are crazy! We watched the US Pro Cycling Challenge on TV this weekend from Colorado. One of the sponsors was Smashburger (based in CO, we live in KY and never heard of them). After watching their first ad... I stated that it was something that appealed to us. After their second ad... I went online to see... More

For a 'burger' place, Smashburger has many options including gluten-free buns! Their black bean burger on a chipotle bun is excellent as are their chicken and salads. Don't even think I've gotten around to actually trying a burger yet!!

My wife and I returned to Smashburger, and we've eaten at this location several times. The food did not disappoint. The "big" burger and smash fries, while a little on the pricey side, are delicious. A little tip -- you can order your sweet potato fries "smash" style with the rosemary and EVOO even though it's not on the menu.... More

Everyone tells you never to order steak at seafood restaurant or chicken at a burger joint but I disagree. My all-time favorite meal at Smashburger is their Chicken Avocado Club Sandwich. The chicken breast is juicy and tender and goes great with the creamy avocado. Don't forget to add some sweet potatoe fries, my favorite.

The mushroom and swiss burger was just as good as last time and the disinterested kid was not there. A much better experience!
