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

We have been her several times and have always had good food, They seem to get our order fast and no problems.The fries are good, not a huge portion but fresh. The burgers are very flavorful and are greasy and messy to eat but always good. The malts are thick and the kids enjoy them. The deep fried pickles are... More

This place is great! Their burgers are excellent and the Smash fries have garlic (I think) and are outstanding. Everything is made to order. Wish they had these in Seattle...

Burgers aren't usually my 'cup of tea', but I made an exception and tried a SmashBurger. Wow. The beef was incredibly flavorful all by itself. Some cheese and toppings made it even more so. I'm not sure how SmashBurger seasons the meat, but it is incredible. The burger has a really intriguing texture - kind of crusted around the perimeter... More

I give this place a big "Whatever!" - I don't get the fuss. The fries were limp and nasty, the burger was dripping in grease, like it had been dipped in melted suet and the bun was like Wonderbread. If the hubby and kids want to go there, I go to Chipotle next door and get something good to eat... More
