This was our first time to Smashburger. Many friends had talked about this place, so maybe our expectations were a little high. The prices were more than we like to pay and the quality of both the burger and the fries were not necessarily better than other burger places we go to.

Good burgers and fries! A nice low key to eat...but sit outside for views of the ocean and smell of the surf!

My husband wants a juicy hamburger and I want a delicious, interesting salad. Smash burger makes us both happy. Beautiful and picturesque Del Mar location.

Friends of ours swore that this was the best burger in Califorina and from what I have tasted so far, I agree with them. It is fresh and the bun is also good and fresh.

Large burgers and good fries, a casual, crowded place if you want a lot to eat after a day at the beach.

On my last visit back home, I was surprised to see how many Smashburgers had closed in the San Diego area. I was thrilled to see that this one was still around, and I still believe that their burgers are worth the detour. My old favorite, the "San Diego," was happily, still on the menu!
