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!!

I was hoping for more, filling shakes were good, burger and fries (shoestring) okay. It was clean inside and staff was helpful. Fast was made very fast and was hot went brought to the table.

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!

Went there with another couple for lunch. The burger was huge and juicy. The milkshake was very good and service was fast and friendly. Good place for lunch,but pricy!

When I saw the sign for smashburger, I has flashbacks to thos picnic burgers on tthe grill where the cook smashes and smashes the burger until they were devoid of juices and like taffy. These burgers were very good! I think the kid working the register shpukd get out of the customer service industry ASAP!

While overnighting in Lexington, we decided to order in through www.lexeatin.com. We chose Smashburger after reading reviews on TA. We were glad we did. They have 3 sizes of burgers. We chose two small and added on an order of the fries to split. The food arrived to our hotel room hot, even the fries. Both the burgers and fries... More

A neat, cozy restaurant that serves up some great tasting burgers and fries. Your food is cooked to order and comes to you piping hot.
