Smashburger is good and affordable if looking for something quick if you don't have time for one of the many sit-down burger restaurants downtown. Food is much better than stopping at a McDonald's and the sweet potato fries are great. I always opt to build my own burger and they are fast and friendly.

Got a coupon for buy one get one free. They accepted it without problem. The hamburgers were ok, nothing great. If I didn't have a coupon, I wouldn't have gone. Probably won't g again. Fries and drinks were good.

Stopped by here for a burger and cost me $24 for 2 burgers, fries and drinks. They were ok but not sensational and definitely not worth the price.

$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

An OK but only an OK burger -- nothing too special They cook to order so they are hot and fresh -- milkshakes aren't worth bothering with

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.
