The cashier was pleasant. Another employee came out to make sure everything was good as I was eating. The restaurant was very clean. The food--was amazing! I ordered a Bacon and Cheese Smashburger with smash fries and a drink. The burger was delicious; not too greasy, toppings were fresh and the bacon was cooked crispy per my request. It was... More

I tried Smashburger hoping to find a good burger on the road. The service was better than I expected & the staff were friendly and attentive. I thought the burger was good, but nothing outstanding. The Smash fries were also good.

Our family eats at this location probably once or twice a month. The food is always consistently goodand the service staff seem to have been there for quite some time and are very friendly. If there are any issues, they are very quick to respond and resolve the issues. The prices are reasonable in the environment is clean and family-friendly.

In a word, YUM!! My husband and I decided to try it on a whim after church one Sunday and it was SO GOOD!! And they have "veggie" fries--who know a fried carrot could be so good?! But not, you know?!

Worst fries I've ever had. Ever. Burger was so-so. Left feeling unsatisfied and upset that we wasted our money. Won't be back.

The first time here i did not try the house fries, the second time i was willing to try - outstanding - a little different but great. Hamburgers are juicy and delicious. minimal wait time. They even bus the tables. It is close to my... More

Excellent well prepared burger. Lots of fresh beef and fixings, the fries are shoestring and a bit greasy. The place sits back off Nicholasville Rd so you have to watch carefully or you will miss it. Just past Fayette Mall on the right before Man of War. Price is about $10 for burger fries and drink The restaurant is clean... More

My son and I went to the MegaCaverns and did a Zip tour. We have a coupon book, and like to try new places. Even though Smashburgers put us an hour off route we wanted to try it. It was SO worth the detour. We were each able to use the coupon. The place was clean including the Bathrooms !!... More

My family had dinner here after the UK game on Sunday, and we were all impressed. The salads wowed us with their presentation, taste and value. The burgers are artefully presented. The fries, especially the smashed fries are tasty, although I am not partial to shoestring style. The service is excellent, and the staff if very trained
