Franchisee Jim Denburg of New City, who also owns a Smashburger in Brooklyn, says,  “We were excited to open our new Nanuet Smashburger location where we are committed to providing delicious high-quality burgers, fries, shakes, and more.  We were pleased to introduce Smashburger to our Rockland County community while supporting one of its leading not-for-profits, United Hospice of Rockland.

Smashburger is now open to the public. According to Smashburger.com, Smashburger’s handcrafted burgers are smashed, seared and seasoned to order, using fresh, 100% Certified Angus Beef®. Patrons may choose a Classic Smashburger or decide to create-their-own.  “Smashburger artisan buns, freshly chopped produce, flavorful sauces and variety of cheeses are designed to deliver a great-tasting, juicy burger you can taste in every bite. Every great burger needs a companion, and our selection of signature sides — like our Smashfries hand-tossed with garlic, rosemary and olive oil and hand-breaded haystack onions— are the perfect complement to any meal. The same is true for our handspun Häagen-Dazs® shakes, served in a frosted glass. And if you’re in the mood for something other than a burger, our menu of grilled chicken sandwiches, crisp entrée salads and black bean veggie burgers are sure to satisfy.  We also offer beer.”
