Good Burgers

Unique fries, their own sauce, and good shakes and burgers. If you like Five Guys and different kinds of burger places, I would try this one out. I like throwing it in my burger cycle of unique chains, since it's not like Matt's Bar or Blue Door.

Good burgers and wonderful sweet potato fries served extremely fast. Burgers can be custom made with the bun and toppings of your choice! The location I was at even served beer.

When I am really hungry for a good hamburger, I think of Smashburger. Although it is a step up from a fast food restaurant, the food is anything but fast food fair. The interior is sparse when it comes to décor but you are there for the food not the atmosphere. The price is reasonable and you have a great... More

Visited the Smasherburger in Golden Valley. Had the smashburger with fries. I do not see anything special about the burger here. It was okay but there are so many really good places around I may try them again to be fair but it will be awhile.

Not a huge menu but there is quality in the selections available. I had the bbq bacon cheeseburger and smashfries (covered in rosemary and salt as opposed to the regular fries with seasalt). My burger was excellent. The fries were alright but for $2 I was happy with the quantity received. I forget what it was called but my wife... More

The burgers were good, succulent and well seasoned. I tried the 'Twin cities burger' and the 'Avacado club chicken burger' and smashfries. The smashfries were skinny, i'll probably choose french fries next time. The servers were great and friendly. We could choose to sit outside or inside, given the small size, it may not be as easy to find a... More

My husband and I recently visited Smashburger in Golden Valley, Minnesota. The strawberry milkshake was outstanding and my husband's bbq, bacon, cheddar, chicken burger was excellent. The toppings on my Twin Cities burger were great but the burger could have been improved if the beef patty had been seasoned with some salt and pepper. Both the Smashfries and the Veggie... More

We've tried this place on a few occasions and it's ok... but, we're just not that into it. We've had better burgers from Culvers and better fries from the likes of Checkers and Mickey D.'s! #IJS

They have very good burgers, and the choices of both burgers and sides are great! The atmosphere did not suit a lunch out with my mother, though. It was hard for her to get her wheelchair through the room, so she parked at the first table and let me choose her food. This meant that she was sitting next to... More

SMASHBURGER has amazing burgers, and the chicken, sweet potato fries, fried veggies, salads, and shakes are also reliably good. The one thing that seems a glaring omission of corporate management: the stupid chrome-mesh trays that your sandwich is served on, protected from the table by the tinest of squares of printed smashpaper.... Virtually every friend/family member I know who has... More
