They are supposed to be opening three here in the Phoenix area over the next year.

Speaking of burgers found this link on a local site http://www.cheeseandburger.com/

I think I may have to try and make some of these.

well, I figured, if you want somethng done, do it yourself, so I braved the crowd and went for lunch today, got very lucky, 2 people in front of me, by the time I sat down after ordering, the line was out the door, and got longer as I was there.

Good burger, not gonna end the burger world, but it was good, my only complaint, and is a small one, I didnt like the pickles.

I dont think I would stand in the kind of line that I saw when I was leaving, but I will go back.
Im sure you can go in there in a month or two and get right in, So i would suggest waiting til the shine is off, and really, arent burgers better after the grill gets a little funk on them?

I don't see how this Smashburger place can be any better than any other burger joint in town.  Certainly can't be worth waiting in any long lines for.  Besides, I was always taught and firmly believe that one should never "smash" a burger on the grill or griddle, as it just depletes the juices out of the meat and makes a dryer, less tasty end product.

Just the usual hysteria that always accompanies a new chain joint opening in town.

Tried Smashburger tonight and....meh. The restaurant leaves me wanting 2 things 1. water and more water, the food seems to be quite salty. 2. a trip to Goldies. I would compare Smashburger to a ~$1 cheaper/not as good Red Robin. I'll give the place another chance in a couple of months to see if the food improves but that is about it.

I was underwhelmed with Red Robin.  Funny your analogy of Smashburger and RR.  When I ate at RR, I said it was a Goldies with some kitschy atmosphere and an unjustifiably more expensive burger.

I find I like RR when I want a little fancier burger than I can get at Goldies (i.e. A1 peppercorn burger), however I eat at Goldies about 3-1 above RR. My only gripe with Goldies is the fact they changed their fries about ~3 years ago and they are not as good, I like going to the Goldies in Stillwater on gamedays because they still have the old variety of fries.

They bill Smashburger as "every cities favorite burger place", I guess we are lucky to have Goldies and Ron's. Wink

And Hank's and Harden's and Linda Mar's and Bill's and Brownie's and Claud's and Arnold's and Weber's and Ralph's and a few others I might have forgotten.

In the previous town where I lived, you couldn't get non-fast-food burger that was worth a damn. I come to Tulsa, and there are great burger joints everywhere. (And I'm not the only well-traveled person who holds that opinion.)

I suppose Smashburger will do OK. But I think it has a leeeeeetle too high opinion of itself, especially considering where it is. You'd be hard-pressed to find better burgers than the local places mentioned above.

We really do have a dearth of fine burger establishments and I frequent them all (I love hamburger) I was merely being concise. Grin

Let's not forget Freddie's...at least the one I know of just east of Eastwood Baptist Church on 11th St.

I'll stick with Brew Burger @ 71st and Sheridan or so. Great buffalo/bison burgers. One of those with Chipotle mayo and some sweet potato fries and I'm a happy camper.

Well I feel like an donkey, I don't know what I was trying to say and why I even put dearth in there...
