“Very Tasty, but oh so Greasy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

I was persuaded to try this place, as there are not many good burger joints serving a quality burger. Suffice to say, that I finally ordered one along with fries and root beer, on a cold wintery day just to get out of the cold. Just my luck that the heater had broken down that very day, and it was as cold in their restaurant as it was outside, that I kept my hat on, that's a first too!

Anyway, for a fast food joint, it serves a decent bottled beer, so no complaints there. The burger is good, very fresh meat for sure. It came with fries, and whilst tasty, they are a heart attack waiting to happen, clearly the owners know the damage this can cause to regular eaters of these burgers, one of my friends eats them about twice a week, and it shows too.

I do not know what possesses anyone to serve fries so sodden with fat, yet they are full of flavor. Thus you have been warned. Definitely a good burger, clearly a tasty bunch of fries, but a major health risk if you eat them regularly. Still, once a month, go enjoy one, as they are better than a lot of others, Especially from the big three.

“OK But Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Burger OK but nothing special. Overpriced for what you get. Service fine and restaurant clean. Typical burger like (5 guys, Beck's Prime, Bubba's, and many more). Not a bad place and they are priced about the same as the other guys.

“Well above average burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Recently opened in Katy, this is part of a chain. Came during lunch time and there was a line out the door waiting to order. Probably partially due to inexperienced staff. When it was this crowded, all the tables were full so we had to wait for one to open up. It took a while to get the food. Maybe it is cooked to order. The menu is mainly a variety of hamburger choices and chicken sandwiches choices. Burgers were juicy and chicken was tender and not dry.They have shakes and serve beer in addition to fountain drinks and an ice tea bar. Besides regular fries they have Smash fries which are coated in rosemary and olive oil-different an good. In my opinion food is much better than typical fast food franchises. Again, may be a wait depending when you go. Wish they had tables outside like some other Smashburgers I have been to.
