We love smash burger but this location is terrible. Dirty, uninviting ambience, slow. Nowhere to put trash and so it was just piling up on the counter. Employees didn't seem to care. This location needs new management.

Stopped for lunch with three friends. Had an American Burger. Very basic with few onions, three pickles, mustard, and catsup. At over six bucks it's expensive and was to salty for me.

For the second and last time I attempted to dine for lunch on a Sunday at 1:00 PM MT, the line was back to the door. There was no one working the cash register, there was a cook that looked like he was a deer in headlights. People were walking out in droves. Obviously management could care less about this... More

Smash burger is a great restaurant but a little small and crowded to eat inside when busy. Burgers and fries are always good and service is good

My food was fantastic! We ate here (first time and not knowing what to expect) and the food was awesome! I ordered a burger and it was cooked to my liking. The toppings were fresh and the burger had such a great taste to it. The fries were thin cut but had great flavor. My milkshake was simply fantastic. The... More

I was coming home from Dever, feeling hungry so pulled off the road. Lots of normal fast foods, but I saw the Smash Burger & thought why not try something new. Staff was very helpful in my selection of the right food for me. Did not have to wait long for my order, but it was not some precooked burger.... More

Smash burger has good tasting beef with a variety of offerings. The items come al la carte so plan on that if you want French fries. The fries are just so-so unless you like shoestring type.

I am on a strict paleo diet and this is one of the few places that I can really eat. I love that the second piece of meat is half the price of the first. Create Your Own and enjoy. My family does.

In a weeks time, I dined four times at Smashburger at the same location under the direction of the same Assistant Manager and each experience was very different some great, some not so great. If you have a coupon, it is worth the risk. Don't go if you are on a time crunch.

Lots of chain burger restaurants these days, but Smashburger's winning burger combinations are well complemented by inventive sides -- including veggies and fried pickles. Haagen Daz milkshakes are a decadent treat.
