Worst fries I've ever had. Ever. Burger was so-so. Left feeling unsatisfied and upset that we wasted our money. Won't be back.

I enjoy coming here, the staff is friendly and does not mind accommodating your needs. The first time here i did not try the house fries, the second time i was willing to try - outstanding - a little different but great. Hamburgers are juicy and delicious. minimal wait time. They even bus the tables. It is close to my... More

Excellent well prepared burger. Lots of fresh beef and fixings, the fries are shoestring and a bit greasy. The place sits back off Nicholasville Rd so you have to watch carefully or you will miss it. Just past Fayette Mall on the right before Man of War. Price is about $10 for burger fries and drink The restaurant is clean... 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

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 excellent, and the staff if very trained

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!!
