In 2007 we opened the first Smashburger with one simple notion in mind: despite the overwhelming number of restaurants serving burgers, Americans were starving for something better. And we could deliver. Our vision is to connect with America’s passion for its favorite food on a local level and in a space where “Smashed Fresh, Served Delicious” means dedication to crafting the best-tasting burger around. Our smashed burgers are always made-to-order, never frozen, smashed and seared to perfection on our grill. Our menu is also kid-friendly, vegetarian-approved and topped off with frosty milkshakes.
Our mission is to put burgers back into people‘s lives. We want to change the way people think about burgers and the way they feel when they have a burger. We want Smashburger to be an every occasion burger restaurant that people can call their own.
We believe people deserve real hamburgers - smashburgers
We believe burgers done right make people happy
we believe in fresh, wholesome, & authentic ingredients like fresh, never frozen beef
we believe magic happens when meat and heat collide
We believe that choosing Smashburger means choosing happiness - You are one bite away from believing it too
