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.

We were intrigued with the rosemary fries, which were quite good. The regular fries are tasty too. You can choose from unique burger combinations (the San Diego is good), or else go traditional or opt to make your own from the toppings options. We would go again, although having been told it was better than Fuddrucker's, we didn't agree. Still... More

Meh-I've had better. I don't normally eat fast food, but was starving after yoga class, and thought I would give this place a try. I visited the one on Hazard Center, not Murphy Canyon. They guy at the counter was extraordinarily nice, so they get a couple of stars just for that. The burger was okay. I asked for multigrain... More

Quickly prepared food, tasted really good, with quality products and ingredients used. We had the chicken burgers and cheeseburgers, sweet potato fries, onion rings and all five of us enjoyed our meal. I would of liked it to be a bit cheaper per person, About $12.00 per person with burger, one side item and drink.

I heard so many good things about Smashburger I finally decided to see what the hype was all about. I arrived on a Friday evening, the line was extremely long and went beyond the front door. I thought wow, this must be REALLY good. The STAFF extremely personable and well trained. I waited about 15-20 with the line and to... More
