It started with Smashburger’s first restaurant opening at the Glendale Ave site in Denver, Colorado - home of the Rocky Mountains. It was 2007, and we were starving for a good burger. Oh sure, there were plenty of burgers out there, but they all tasted the same – rushed. Trading savoriness for speediness. Convenience over craftsmanship. A quick experience instead of a taste experience.
Using custom-forged burger smashers, our chefs set forth to craft the best burgers, fries, and shakes that quickly became a local sensation. Our burgers were so irresistible that we soon discovered we weren't the only ones craving a better burger – our ravenous fans couldn't get enough! And it wasn't just our burgers – even our sides were a hit. Our rosemary SmashFries® were so mouthwateringly delicious that we started receiving hate mail from customers who couldn't stop devouring them!
We are grateful for our Denver community's support, and it has been an honor to grow from our first location to serve Smashburger lovers

How Smashburger is making fast-casual more experientialAs the line between fast-casual and casual-dining continues to blur, Smashburger is hopping on the more upscale, experiential trend within the limited-service category. Recently, somewhat in defiance of the off-premises focus of the COVID-era restaurant, Denver-based fast-casual burger chain, Smashburger, has been trying to get guests to linger longer instead of grabbing their food at a pickup window or multi-lane drive-thru.
