Smashburger Opens in Atlanta

Smashburger opens in Atlanta: If you thought the burger craze was over, think again. Smashburger opened its first Atlanta location recently. There’s been a lot of buzz the certified Angus beef burgers, butter-toasted artisan buns and rosemary-and-garlic-seasoned fries. The Denver-based company takes its name comes from the technique used to “smash” the beef on a flat grill, searing in the juices.

Though all of the company’s signature burgers are available, the menu also includes locally focused dishes, such as an Atlanta burger with peach barbecue sauce, pimento cheese, grilled jalapenos and Vidalia coleslaw on an egg bun. Sides include veggie frites, haystack onions, sweet potato fries and more.

Smashburger is located at 2625 Piedmont Road NE. For more information, call 404-237-2374 or visit
