I like this place but when we used to go there were definite changes. The size of the fries when you make it a meal would change on depending who the chef was. Normally a side would be able to feed 2 people and some you would be lucky to get 15 fries altogether. Hopefully it was just a minor... More

I love going here for lunch since it's close to work and the crew is quick to take your order and get you served. Yes it's a burger place but I absolutely love their chicken avocado club sandwich! You must get the smash fries with it...drizzled with olive oil and herbs pairs well with the chicken avocado club. It's real... More

My wife and kids love the shakes, and I love the burgers. Best fast-ish food in America. The shakes are huge, so I would recommend getting two cups and sharing.

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

I visited the Smashburger at Hazard Center with a group of friends and had and enjoyed the avocado bean burger and the location.

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

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
