“Smashburger - Not so smashing.”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Our first experience at Smashburger was not what we expected. The staff was nice. The was restaurant clean. The food was just OK. The hamburger I got had so much mustard on it, it spilled all over my clothes. The other people I was with had the same problem.

“Delicious”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We have casual lunchs here every now and then with my wife. Very tasty burgers, reasonable prices. San Diego burger is our favorite. Tried the milkshake once, very good. Service is always quick and with no mistake, although it gets very crowded at lunch sometimes. Location is also very convenient, right in the middle of downtown La Jolla. Just grab a bite here, you wont be disappointed.

“Nice burgers”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We visited Smashburger for a cheap and cheerful dinner one night. The burgers were fine but nothing special. Service was disappointing. We probably could have got nicer elsewhere.

“Tasty”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Fresh made burger. Tasty fries. They put mustard on the burgers. I'd ask that they didn't. Sit in the window and watch La Jolla.
