Goldies fries were mentioned,
I agree, I really miss the old fries, and they used to serve Pepsi also, the best fountain Pepsi anywhere, I hate Coke.
Why must they pick one, why cant a place have both Pepsi AND Coke

because both pepsi and coke both demand that theirs is the only product before they will agree to installing their equipment.   No signing on the line, no machines, no syrup, no nothing.

The Speedy's Mexican restaurant at 25th and Memorial has both Coca Cola and Pepsi fountain machines.

I was just talking about that night before last.  I don't think I would want to open a resteraunt and be bound to one or the other.  I'm sure I could find a way to get both setups in the resteraunt.  A resteraunt being forced to choose one or the other, to me, is like a bar being forced to serve either Bud or Coors.  It's idiotic.

in regards to coke or pepsi...If you own the machine they will both sell you product, but if one or the other provides a machine free of charge they expect a exclusive deal.

I tried smashburger this weekend. It's decent but not amazing, especially for $6 + drinks + side.

Smashing the burger is okay on a flat grill, but not on a grate.

I finally tried it today and it was somewhere between unremarkable and forgettable.  I did luck out and hit it about 11:20 before the line started.  I had the standard Smashburger and Smash fries.

Way too much salt in the patty.  Literally, there were still grains of salt in it.  The smash fries were good, I'll give them that much.  The special sauce on the burger seemed to be mayo and mustard.

For $10.81 for a 1/2 pound burger, seasoned fries, a tea, and tax I think I'd rather spend $7 or $8 on something local and much better.  I can get table service at Goldies and spend the same amount with a 20% tip.

Burger FAIL, IMO.

Well I liked it. Particularly the milk shake.

The combo of the burger and tasty milkshake reminded me of a Johnny Rockets.

Definitely would pass up Red Robin for this place.

I actually feel bad for Fuddruckers, though. They were the first burger joint to locate in the 169/71st and Imax Gold Mine area, and now they've got a Red Robin just down the street and a Smash Burger directly across from them.

I tried the OK Burger with the Smash Fries.

I think I was the only one at the table who liked the fries. Everyone else was not happy with the taste. As for the burger, the toppings were delicious and so plentiful that I can't even give an honest opinion of the burger itself.

I'd probably give it an 7.5/10. I think I liked the burger at Campus Grill better, but I liked the Smashburger than many of the other chains.

On a side note, I also had an Angus burger from McDonald's. I have to admit that I thought it was pretty delicious and filling and would probably rank it around the same (7.5/10).

Heh, I saw that online about the one at 31st and Memorial, had Lisa drive by since she was out and about and sure nuff, still said it.  You would think by the time it got all over the interenet they would have fixed it.

I've heard it's not that spectacular.  And while I like Red Robin to some extent, forget it if you have a party larger than 4.  They freak out and screw almost everything up on the order.  One time I thought was an anamoly, but after three different experiences there with parties of larger than 4 with different wait staff, I don't know if I'll go back unless it's with a party of 4 or smaller.

I like Smashburger OK. But when you've got a slew of great burger joints all over the city, another one coming into town is nothing to get excited about.
