Allow myself a hamburger maybe once every two to three months and this is where I want to go. I can get what I want on it and it has always been fresh and worth the wait.

Hands down, this is my favorite place to go. The burgers, while not made to order, are plenty juicy and tasty enough to not leave me wishing I could make it medium rare. The chicken sandwiches are great. I don't like the trend of the industry overall going toward these shoestring fries (at least that's what I've heard them called),... More

What can I say but WOW! What a burger. Ordered the Colorado Smash burger and the large Smash burger. One with regular fries and the other with sweet potato Smash fries. One of the best burger and combo I've had! I'll ge back to create my own burger next time.

Smashburger is good and affordable if looking for something quick if you don't have time for one of the many sit-down burger restaurants downtown. Food is much better than stopping at a McDonald's and the sweet potato fries are great. I always opt to build my own burger and they are fast and friendly.

Got a coupon for buy one get one free. They accepted it without problem. The hamburgers were ok, nothing great. If I didn't have a coupon, I wouldn't have gone. Probably won't g again. Fries and drinks were good.

Stopped by here for a burger and cost me $24 for 2 burgers, fries and drinks. They were ok but not sensational and definitely not worth the price.

Loved it. Different. Reasonable prices. Made out Denver walkaround special. Love their hot peppers on burgers.

$43 bucks for 4 burgers without fries or drinks, 1 kids meal(chicken too burnt to eat & we didn't get our milk either), and 2 melty shakes. Burgers were dry & not topped right. If it wasn't a 10 block walk in the cold I would've taken it all back. Only reason they get a 2 is because when I... More

An OK but only an OK burger -- nothing too special They cook to order so they are hot and fresh -- milkshakes aren't worth bothering with

Sure beats a lot of the others, not to mention any names. Good grind on the beef, wish I had ordered it Med-rare for a little more flavor. Quick service, lots of mustard and ketchup for topping it off. Fries were good but thin, I'm a fan of home style fries. But then again the name is "SmashBURGER" not smash... More
