Enjoyed a wonderful meal with friends. Very kid friendly and this is very important to me. The amount of food that you get is well worth the price. I ordered the smallest burger and it was huge and I could only eat half. The Smash fries are incredible. We will definitely be back.

My wife and I tried Smashburger this past weekend, and I have to say it was awesome. The menu selection is expansive and interesting, the restaurant is fresh, attractive, and clean, and the people who work there are fantastic. I had an avocado club burger with goat cheese, and the wife (who wasn't originally hungry) had the Veggie Frites (flash-fried carrot sticks and green beans). She GOT hungry, of course, and thoroughly enjoyed my french fries, and a bite off my burger.
I'm not sure why there are comparisons to Five Guys; this place is much more upscale, and the burgers are MUCH better than Five Guys.
All in all, it was a great lunch experience, and we will definitely go back for more.

Went here for lunch today. We work in the Research Park area so to dive out there it was a bit out of the way but well worth it. How people can say that it doesnt compare to 5Gs is beyond me. This place I feel is way better! I never been to a smash before but can tell you that when I;m in the need for a burger fix this is where I'll be going. I had the big smash with grill mushrooms, and onions! The burger was big, fat, freash and juicy!!! I would recomend this place to anyone!

This is an over-priced alternative to Five Guys and Fries. They do not have anything that compares to 5GF! I feel for the size of the burger it is over-priced. Only tried once and it was an hour wait for such average food, maybe I will try agin when the :new" wear off and see if it improves. Sad for a first experience, I hope it remains so I can try it again since I was close to rating it a 2 rating instead!

A chain restaurant but good food and local items special to this area - like fried green tomatoes on your hamburger or chicken. Everything is really good and fresh.
