I tried it once.  I'm back to patronizing the local burger boys.  I'm sure my physician wishes I wouldn't  Wink

I tried to hit the one in front of the Cinemark IMAX (in the new downtown Tulsa--169 and 71st) around 1:30 last Sunday.

Big mistake. Line was all the way out the door. In the interest of time, I had to settle for Wendy's instead.

I don't like big crowds. I wish I didn't live in this area, because it seems all of Northeastern Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas converge here all at once on Saturdays and Sunday afternoons.

Maybe its also the 6 hotels surrounding the Cinemark. This Smashburger is within walking distance of 4 of them.

A great choice for their location, I must say.

I normally don't bring up old posts, but I tried Smashburger yesterday and doubt that I will be going back. It wasn't dry as someone else commented, it was rather greasy,. Had the 1/3# mushroom and swiss with sweet potato fries and a medium drink. $11.00. just not worth the money. Would rather go to one of the sports bars near me for a 1/2# with fries for the same price, plus get a beer to go with it. Also would rather support a local instead of a franchise.

Still trying to find a Ron's or Hank's here, most places are also gyros and Chicago style hot dog places. Also nothing like Goldie's. Close but not quite.

A Meers burger and drink doesn't even cost $11 and it's far better than a smashburger. Only problem is it's a little remote

Every time I've gone, the burgers have been so salty that I can't eat the whole thing.  Red Robin is the same way.  Too much salt to cover up flavorless meat.

Can't stand that.  I've literally walked out of restaurants who think salting up a dish to flavor it is good practice.  Like you said, it's covering something.

I do notice lately though that more and more restaurants don't salt their food as much as in the years past.  Good for me, with my family history of hypertension.  I've also become very label-aware when it comes to sodium.

I ate at Harden's last week and almost couldn't eat the burger because it was so salty.  They use an onion salt blend, so it was onion-salty.  Next time I will have to instruct them to "lay off".

Went to Smashburger in Wichita about 3 weeks ago.  Forgettable - so it seems they are at least consistent.  But that is McDonald's territory, so they better watch out.

Gonna stick with Bill's
And Lot-A-Burger (at least until they go under, which seems to be the business plan of the lawyers in Bartlesville who own it.  Wish they would let me have it, rather than the ongoing decay of their facilities - even worse than usual.)

I've always wondered what's up with those Lot-A-Burgers.

Perhaps you've answered my question-A tax write-off for a successful law firm?

Got an ex that is a manager at one of the stores.  I never could understand the business practices of the company, nor how they managed to keep in business.

the newest one they built (up on Mingo between Admiral and Pine, I'm guessing to service the AA employees) is almost always empty.  The only thing of theirs I really care for is their chicken tenders or whatever they call them.  Their burgers are quite underwhelming.  I mean, if you work for AA, just drive the extra two minutes to Hank's and have good food!

I don't  think they ever "built" one - they just take over abandoned buildings and start up a restaurant.  Like Rib Crib's early years.  Good idea, but really ought to put on a coat of paint!  (Do you suppose they use Anchor paint??)

The one that used to be at 1600 No. Lewis was exceptionally run down in 1967 the first time I went there.  Don't think it ever got any maintenance.  Sad, but that's what happens when lawyers are involved in the economy, I guess.  Oh, well.

Still think I could do something with it.

I went to one where you could see a little sign over the grill - notice to employees type thing.
It said something to the effect that salt is the key to the thing and not to skimp on it.  Very salty.  It all goes back to the meat they use.  Was told once, but don't remember.
