SmashBurger 1/3 lb. Burger

smashburger.jpgThe SmashBurger chain only recently came to California, and today I ate at the restaurant for the first time. I had read a lot of good things about SmashBurger since first learning about the chain a year or so ago and had pretty high expectations. I ordered a 1/3 pound burger on an egg bun with American cheese, bacon, mustard, mayonnaise, and ketchup. The patty had a nice, tasty char on the exterior and frayed edges that confirmed it had, indeed, been prepared using the smash method. The meat - fresh, never frozen 100% Angus beef - wasnít as flavorful as I hoped it would be, but was pretty good. I didnít love the egg bun, though. It was a little too wimpy for my liking. Fortunately, SmashBurger offers four types of buns so next time Iíll try one of the other choices. The bacon and cheese both tasted great but next time I think Iíll get not only the bacon and cheese, but also a fried egg (only an extra 99 cents). The price of my burger alone was $6.48, which at first seemed a bit high to me. Considering the quality of the ingredients, the fast and friendly service, and delivery of the order to your table, I guess itís not too bad of a deal. All in all, I liked the burger and reckon that this wonít be the last time I eat at SmashBurger.

The haystack onions are definitely a must try. I always get the BBQ Bacon and Cheese at the Smashburger here in Denver.

what does someone's sex, age, weight, and height have to do with the topic? Stan, i think you are looking for facebook or myspace.

I love smashburger. They offer a 50% discount to military in uniform here in Wichita! They are very nearly as good as the best local grease bomb burger joint, and a hell of a lot better than any other fast food joint.
