Local Flavor: Smash Burger

My brother had raved about Smash Burger on FB, and hubby and I were intrigued, so we decided to check it out.
Sometimes you just crave a juicy burger and crispy fries, you know? This day was one of those days. I definitely did NOT want to be disappointed. (Plus I was starving.)

First impressions: The dining room had a clean, modern feel, and was very streamlined. There were comfy booths on either side of the room and two rows of tables in the middle. There were already a lot of people there when we arrived, which I took as an excellent sign.

We each ordered the Classic burger and a side of Smash fries (ringing in at about $16 for the two of us when we added drinks). It wasn't long at all before our food came out. 

Right off the bat I loved the Smash fries: regular french fries tossed with fragrant herbs and olive oil. They are served with a fry sauce that complements them beautifully. I didn't even have to taste them to know they would be amazing; the smell alone had me sold. The burger was juicy and flavorful, with extremely fresh toppings and a beautiful bun. It was the most beautiful burger I had ever eaten, and it tasted every bit as good as it looked.

The verdict: We have already gone back for round 2! For the quality and deliciousness of the meal, the price is very reasonable. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

  1. I haven't been there, but it's one of my brother-in-law's favorite places to eat. He came home with some of those amazing fries and David and I immediately attempted to recreate them (and, of course, they weren't nearly as good). We will have to try it out for ourselves! I love these restaurant reviews, Kristyn, keep it up!

  2. Thanks, Rachel! I've been dreaming of recreating those fries, too!


Thanks for your comment. Let's keep things friendly!
