It's Not Just Any Old Angus Beef

At Smashburger taste and quality are at the top of the list. That’s why we only use 100% Certified Angus Beef® in our burgers. PERIOD. Full stop.

Angus is everywhere these days and over the last couple of decades it’s even become a bit of a buzzword. Angus beef is good. It’s true. But the Certified Angus Beef® brand? It’s on an entirely different level. The folks at CAB have defined standards against which they measure all beef. They take no shortcuts and have a virtual obsession with flavor and juiciness.

How did those standards come into being? Glad you asked. It’s an interesting story we never get tired of telling. It’s the tale of a group of farmers who, in the 1970s, got together and said collectively, “We can do better. We can produce beef that’s extremely tender, juicier and always packed with flavor.”

They then proceeded to set the exacting standards that have become the true mark of quality of an Angus brand. The Certified Angus Beef® brand. From our family ranches to your family table.

Magic. It’s what happens when meat and heat collide. When you add the flavor profile of 100% Certified Angus Beef® raised by family farmers and ranchers to that equation, it’s truly out of this world…”
