Several people told us to try Smashburger while we were in San Diego. Other than being friendly, it was nothing special. We ordered their classic burger with American Cheese - yuk. The egg bun was really soft squishy. Perhaps if we had built our own burger with Swiss cheese and the whole grain bun, it would have been different.

Simple burger menu, easily modified. Great choices. Cooked as ordered. Excellent sides - haystack onion rings and the deep fried pickles. mmmmmm And did I say they also serve Stone's Brewery range of fine, fine ales? Get an Arrogant B#*&@ard.

I heard a lot about Smashburger, but it didn't live up to the hype. I was disappointed in this rather costly hamburger that comes with zero ambiance.

We were hesitant to go in because there wasn't anyone inside. We decided to take a chance and explore a burger place we don't have in our area. The guy at the counter was so fun he was enthusiastic about his job and was great getting the kids to pick their burgers he suggested the San Diego burger for me-which... More

I really love that they offer more than burgers. My family loves the burgers. I get the skinless boneless chicken. The club sandwich is great with avocado, bacon and ranch. The sweet potato fries are great too. I love In n Out and Five Guys, but this is nice when I'm tired of burgers and the rest of the family... More

Smashburger is a good burger. I upgraded to ghe Big Burger and it was served up quickly. If you are looking for a quick bite outside of the typical fast food fare I would recommend a trip to Smashburger.

If you want to try one of the new hamburger chains that offer up something more than the usual, including In-n-Out, this is worth a try. The meat and the buns are good and the price is reasonable.
