Smashburger...any good?

So, how is this place? One just opened up in my neighborhood...

What are their competitive advantages? Anything they do special or different from all the other burger chains?

And...holy fuck, if you need a burger or a mattress? Come to NOVA!

Agreed. Smashburger isn't bad but it's pricey and a bit gimmicky.

The burgers are ok. But it goes against what you are supposed to do in smashing a burger you release all the yummy juices. The fries all have some weird spices like Rosemary and olive oil they are super thin. I like Glory Days burgers way better.

That's my understanding too, that you should never squashing a cooking burger. And only flip them once.

Overpriced gimmick.

Because the juices have been smashed out they are basically just a well done, crunchy flattend patty.

The fries are lame - if you want thin cut fries, elevation is better and local.

Bzzzt, anyone who starts any sentence with "I like Glory Days..." automatically disqualifies themselves having an opinion worth listening to.

(OK, de gustibus non disputandum, but seriously, GD is incredibly mediocre in every way!)

Thought it was just average especially in comparison to Five guys
Never was a fan of their french fries (or the amount they serve)

I think we can come with a better alternative for people who love juicy moist burgers. Hawkburgers. Come watch us hawk on your burger. You get your choice of toppings too.

I haven't been to Five Guys in ages. The ones around here have been closing up. I thought they would be the first fast food joint to charge $30 for two to eat a lunch.

I don't know about anything else on Glory Days menu but their Monday burger deal is a great price and the burger is the BEST in town hands down. Best fries are from Hard times with fresh potatoes with skins and not frozen YUM!

Marriott also said "if treat your employees good then they will treat the guests great". What the hell happened?
third rate management running second rate hotels now.
