My brother and I wanted a good hamburger and decided to eat at smashburger, although he liked it, I was not impressed. Not sure what didn't sit well with me. But i.will say that it was a very clean place the restrooms were clean as well and the employee's were awesome. But I have had better burgers

Delicious hamburgers and fries. The teas are amazing. Returning to the food, I ordered the applewood-smoked bacon. The beacon is really good. The only issue, is the size's portions. If you are hungry, surely is a good option. But if you're REALLY hungry, you should find other place. Even the big size isn't enough. And I'm not a big guy... More

Dude. Greasy. Pretty slow too like 15 minutes to get a burger and fries with some weird herb stuff on em and like sitting in a pool of grease on the tray. Nasty

Several people told us to try Smashburger while we were in San Diego. Other than being friendly, it was nothing special. We ordered their classic burger with American Cheese - yuk. The egg bun was really soft squishy. Perhaps if we had built our own burger with Swiss cheese and the whole grain bun, it would have been different.

Simple burger menu, easily modified. Great choices. Cooked as ordered. Excellent sides - haystack onion rings and the deep fried pickles. mmmmmm And did I say they also serve Stone's Brewery range of fine, fine ales? Get an Arrogant B#*&@ard.

We are from Florida and don't have this chain. The menu had lots of new things like fried vegetables, garlic potatoes, and the option of either having either a fresh ground beef party or a chicken breast.I had the San Diego special with avocado and jalapeno ,lettuce, and tomato.It was tasty and unique. We really liked the garlic fries. Other... More

I heard a lot about Smashburger, but it didn't live up to the hype. I was disappointed in this rather costly hamburger that comes with zero ambiance.

We were hesitant to go in because there wasn't anyone inside. We decided to take a chance and explore a burger place we don't have in our area. The guy at the counter was so fun he was enthusiastic about his job and was great getting the kids to pick their burgers he suggested the San Diego burger for me-which... More

I really love that they offer more than burgers. My family loves the burgers. I get the skinless boneless chicken. The club sandwich is great with avocado, bacon and ranch. The sweet potato fries are great too. I love In n Out and Five Guys, but this is nice when I'm tired of burgers and the rest of the family... More
