QUESTION

What was your first impression?

THE SCOOP

Camille: Catchy name, clean facilities, friendly service. I could make Smashburgers a regular part of my eating-out experience!
Emily: The name is tantalizing for sure and when I walked in the door I loved the crisp, clean, shiny colors and stainless steel everywhere. The customer service was A+ from the moment you walked through the door.
Evonne: A little over priced for something I thought was like a “fast food” joint.
Kalli: Didn’t seem like a burger joint but more of a hipster/casual sort of place.
Michelle: Looks nicer than your average burger place. When Jared saw that you could add an egg to your burger it jumped above all other burger places in the area.
Quinn: Fun environment; loved the typography on the walls and the big windows showing off the mountains in the background.
Stephanie: How bright and open the store was. I love good lighting in restaurants. For some reason it seems to make the food look and taste better.
Vanessa: Clean and modern design, warm and friendly staff and a very user friendly menu. I love booths and I am glad they fit in quite a few of them! Their food is beautiful, picture perfect, and quite tasty as well.

QUESTION

What did you like the most?

.
THE SCOOP

Camille: Eating there made me reminisce of summer BBQ’s in my parents’ backyard: grilling burgers made with real meat, and the same hospitable family-friendly atmosphere!
Emily: Their flash-fried veggies (carrots, green beans and asparagus) were really yummy and their smashfries were also super tasty. (They were my daughter’s favorite part of the meal!) My kids thought the shakes were super tasty and probably ate their weight in ice cream!
Evonne: I loved the pickles on my sandwich and the awesome bun!
Kalli: The fries and the wedge salad were seriously good, also I liked the bun on my burger. Friendly managers and staff were eager to please and quick to clean up.
Michelle: I am not usually a burger person, but my Classic burger was really tasty and well dressed. We liked that you could build your own hamburger just how you like it for the same price as a normal burger. We also really like that the napkins were on the table not by the drinks. It was convenient and cuts down on waste because you only take the amount you need.
Quinn: I loved my kids’ chicken strips. I’m a bit picky with chicken strips and these were perfect: crunchy, crispy, tasty breading on the outside with nice, tender meat on the inside. I also loved the asparagus spears in the veggie frites and the smash sauce on my Classic Smashburger. My husband loved his smashfries and loved the milkshakes.
Stephanie: The grasshopper shake. I am a huge fan of mint shakes and that did not disappoint. And you can tell they use high quality ice cream in their preparation.
Vanessa: The beef patty on the burgers—it was the perfect thickness, done-ness, crispy but moist. The buns! They are egg buns and fabulous! I would snack on those just on their own! My girls were absoluely loving the milkshakes; it was actually quite scary how much they consumed. My husband swears by their fries; he loves that they have olive oil and rosemary on them.

QUESTION

What didn’t you like?

.
THE SCOOP

Camille: That I saw so many other menu items catching my eye after I ordered! Good excuse to go back…
Emily: I’m a big fan of a good, spicy burger or chicken sandwich but the Spicy Baja burger was so spicy it totally drowned out the taste of the actual burger. The chipotle bun had some serious kick baked right in; that combined with the pepper jack cheese and a spicy chipotle sauce was too much for even these spice-lovin’ tastebuds.
Evonne: Their burgers had way too much sauce.
Kalli: My burger was a bit meaty for my personal taste, but I’m sort of a weirdo. I should have taken them up on the offer for more BBQ sauce too.
Michelle: I wish you could get the veggie frites without the carrots. I am not a cooked carrot person. Jared thinks the fry sauce could have been better. {I might have to agree with Jared on this one; not my fave fry sauce.}
Quinn: It was a bit fatty for my tastes (roughly 1000 calories – half of those from fat – per burger). I’m not a big fan of tons of sauce and juice dripping out of my burgers, so next time I’d order it with the sauces on the side. The prices seemed a little high for their burgers/sandwiches, especially considering they don’t come with sides. It would cost about $8-11/person to get their choice of burger and fries/side. However, the meat they use seemed to be of excellent quality, so maybe that’s where the price comes in (the hamburger meat was REALLY good). The kids meal pricing was just right, though, and you got a lot of food for $3.99.
Stephanie: It is probably a little more expensive than I would normally spend to take my family out for burgers. But the price definitely matches the quality which is A++.
Vanessa: They really need a veggie burger option on the menu, salads for vegetarians don’t cut it. Their veggie frites (“fries”) need to cost as much as the regular fries; don’t up the prices on healthy items! The “Smash” sauce that comes on the burger is actually quite good and the burger holds it really nicely BUT a few of us got way too much on our burgers so be sure they don’t do that to your burger too! Their chicken sandwich didn’t impress us too much either.

QUESTION

Would you visit again?

.
THE SCOOP

Camille: I have to try the smashwedge so the answer would be YES!
Emily: For sure! My husband couldn’t make it and I’d love to let him try it. He’s a big fan of the egg on the hamburger thing like Jared so he’d love that fun little perk. Plus those smashfries are rather addictive!
Evonne: I would go back, but probably just with my husband.
Kalli: For the fries? Yes.
Michelle: Yes, the burgers were good and so were the prices. Plus, you can get a half pound burger!
Quinn: Yes, but not regularly as our family doesn’t eat that type of food much. The smashchicken supposedly has quite a few less calories than their burgers, so I’d go with that next time. One of the local representatives was talking it up and it sounded really yummy! It would be a fun place to go for a girls’ night, date night or a family birthday outing. {Um, better see Vanessa’s comment above on the smashchicken…}
Stephanie: Yes. I have been to one of the other locations before and now there is one closer to home so I will surely be back!
Vanessa: Yes! Lots of times I don’t enjoy burgers because of the way the beef patties are but Smashburge’s I find absolutely perfect. I would definitely go there if I was craving a burger and fries. They have just enough options for their kids menu and my husband craves Smashburger quite frequently. It is a great family dinner spot for us.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
