It's a Smash!

The burgers are much better than McDonald's or even Five Guys Burgers and Fries. The salads are wonderful and you can even get a beer if you so desire.

For a great juice hamburger, you have to come here. The beef is delicious and the fries are top rate. If anything, serving sizes are too big to eat.

I love going to Smashburger. They provide a consistently good burger. Their smash fries are good also. They could improve their fried pickles Their staff is usually friendly. On this occasion the register worker was a little clueless on how to handle our coupon for free sides. The place is clean. They added a vestibule on their front door, to... More

Service was great as usual. We have tried many different locations and this one was clean and comfortable except for the loud hum of the soda machine. Food was quite bland and burgers dry even though they were fresh. Fries had way too much seasoning on them and we noticed prices had really gone up from what we remember. Even... More

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
