“Great Burger and Shake. Skip the Fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

I ordered the BBQ burger, and it was downright yummy. I also ordered the salted caramel shake, and I really enjoyed it. I agree with other reviewers who thought the smash fries were too greasy. They had an interesting flavor, but they were so soggy and wet with oil I didn't eat many of them. So that was a bit of a waste. Otherwise, this was a good experience.

“Lighten your wallet and loosen your belt”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Smashburger is some good eats but be ready to pay. I cannot compleat the variety on the menue or the quality of the burgers enough. You can create a specialty burger of your own dripping with toppings that will fill you to your hearts content. The sides are all of the hugest quality but be ready to pay a sit down restaurant fee at a burger joint.

My only complaint is the cost at this place, you will pay a price similar to that of an Olive Garden or a nice Steak house. However, if you've never ate there it is worth visiting (just don't bring a large family).

“Food is good, but pricy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The place is clean and service is fast, but the menu doesn't allow many options to save money. Burgers are expensive, but good and the sides are good also but once you add the meal together for several people your paying a good deal of money.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

When we first arrive to manhattan we saw the smashburger and though what the heck. So we order two burgers and had to pay for a side of fries. Which was a little shocking but ok. We get home and the burgers are ok. It wasn't something I like but we haven't been back since and it might be a while before we do.
