$43 bucks for 4 burgers without fries or drinks, 1 kids meal(chicken too burnt to eat & we didn't get our milk either), and 2 melty shakes. Burgers were dry & not topped right. If it wasn't a 10 block walk in the cold I would've taken it all back. Only reason they get a 2 is because when I... More

Sure beats a lot of the others, not to mention any names. Good grind on the beef, wish I had ordered it Med-rare for a little more flavor. Quick service, lots of mustard and ketchup for topping it off. Fries were good but thin, I'm a fan of home style fries. But then again the name is "SmashBURGER" not smash... More

Best parts: fresh meat, delivered hot, burgers are tasty, food is "fresh" Not so good: very skinny fries are not my style, they get cold too fast. Also burgers are very thin and get lost in a full size bun - there is not a lot of chew. I think this compares to the new Red Robbin mini-store, Wendy's, John... More

After taking the Segway tour of Denver, my friend and I stopped here for a quick burger. It did not disappoint. Good service, friendly staff, reasonable price.

Grandson loved it! I would have liked a cup of coffee. Somehow I paid extra for a soda, but I did not want it. The burger was cooked nicely, not over cooked or dried out.

This was one of the best hamburgers EVER! As my teenagers would say, "We SMASHED at Smash Burger!" I enjoyed every bite of a bacon avocado cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and a milkshake and the memory is making my mouth water! They have outdoor and indoor seating and it's a very neat restaurant. TIP: Don't walk into the downtown... More

Denver is the home of Smashburger. It is a great burger joint. My first experience was a week earlier in Destin, FL.
