The Cowboy Cobb Salad is created with the freshest romaine and iceberg lettuce and topped with diced chicken breast, chopped applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, fresh diced tomatoes, haystack onions, spicy chipotle sauce, and finished off with guacamole and fresh jalapeños.

Sweet Potato Smashfries are sweet potato fries are tossed with rosemary, olive oil and garlic.

Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers start with a one-third or half-pound ball of 100-percent certified Angus beef-fresh, never frozen-smashed, seared and seasoned on a flat grill. To further the “better burger” experience, Smashburgers are served on butter-toasted artisan buns and can be topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce and top-quality condiments.

Smashburger provides something for everyone. Along with its mouthwatering burgers, the restaurant serves delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries. Diners can also enjoy Häagen-Dazs shakes, beer, wine and root beer floats with their meal.
