Smashburger Sizzles, Opens Third San Antonio Location

Every City’s Favorite Burger Place Coming to Bandera Pointe on Nov. 20, 2009

San Antonio, Texas—Smashburger, a fast-casual, “better burger” restaurant is making its mark on the city’s northwest side as it opens its third San Antonio location at 11309 Bandera Road and Loop 1604 in the Bandera Pointe Shopping Center on November 20, 2009. The new location will introduce a Texas Smashburger to cater to big, bold Texan flavors.

Smashburger entered the San Antonio market in the Summer of 2009 with Smashburger at Stone Ridge, located at 21025 U.S. Highway 281 and Park North, located at 842 NW Loop 410.

Known for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers start with a one-third or half-pound ball of 100-percent Angus beef—fresh, not frozen—smashed, seared and seasoned on a flat grill. To further the “better burger” experience, Smashburgers are served on butter-toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce and top-quality condiments.

Smashburger provides something for everyone including Smashchicken, Smashdogs and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries.  Diners can also enjoy Häagen-Dazs shakes, root beer floats, beer and wine with their meal.

“The response to San Antonio’s first two stores has been impressive,” says Smashburger Founder Tom Ryan. “We are excited to bring our ‘better burgers’ to the residents of northwest San Antonio.”

Based in San Antonio, SB Alamo Development, LLC principals Lawrence F. Harris, Allen J. Jones and Jason R. Kemp collectively bring more than 80 years of restaurant industry experience to Smashburger. SB Alamo Development, LLC plan to open 45 Smashburger stores over the next eight years.

“We are thrilled to be in on the ground floor with the next biggest success in the restaurant industry,” says Harris, CEO of SB Alamo Development, LLC. “We look forward to becoming San Antonio’s favorite burger place.”
