Home-town “Better Burger” Restaurant Continues to Expand throughout Denver Metro


(DENVER, COLO.) – Smashburger—the Denver-based fast casual better burger concept—is opening its ninth metro location on October 21, 2009. The latest location—South Parker Road and Yale Ave. located at 2630 South Parker Road—will bring “better burgers” to the eager residents of Aurora, Colo.


Named for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers are a one-third or half-pound ball of beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in all the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, Smashburgers are served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.


In addition to classic menu items, diners can create their new favorite burger with Smashburger’s Create Your Own menu options. With everything from a fried egg to applewood smoked bacon, and garlic sautéed mushrooms, the fresh, tasty combinations are endless.


Smashburger is known for its savory burgers, but the restaurant also serves up delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic–seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with beer, wine, HäagenDazs shakes, and root-beer floats.


“Denver-area residents are some of our biggest fans,” says Smashburger Founder Tom Ryan. “We know that the Aurora location will be a great success and we are honored to continue expanding right in our own backyard.”
