This location is tremendously slow and just cant recommend based on that alone and since slow service has happened the last three times i have been here. 30-35 minutes to get food for two is ridiculous at most places, but for a burger/fry restaurant that is just crazy. Food was fine each time once we got it. If you have... More

I came her by accident as it is right next door to Verizon and by Aldi's. I thought I would check it out. SO glad I did. I had the Jalapeño burger. They have just right amount of heat. No too hot or too mild. Goldilocks perfect. I think one of the reasons they are so good (I've eaten here... More

I had the regular Bluegrass burger and my hubby and dd shared a big burger with bacon, mayo, sautéed onions and sautéed crimini mushrooms. DD tried the salted caramel shake and I decided... More

The cashier was pleasant. Another employee came out to make sure everything was good as I was eating. The restaurant was very clean. The food--was amazing! I ordered a Bacon and Cheese Smashburger with smash fries and a drink. The burger was delicious; not too greasy, toppings were fresh and the bacon was cooked crispy per my request. It was... More

I tried Smashburger hoping to find a good burger on the road. The service was better than I expected & the staff were friendly and attentive. I thought the burger was good, but nothing outstanding. The Smash fries were also good.

Our family eats at this location probably once or twice a month. The food is always consistently goodand the service staff seem to have been there for quite some time and are very friendly. If there are any issues, they are very quick to respond and resolve the issues. The prices are reasonable in the environment is clean and family-friendly.

In a word, YUM!! My husband and I decided to try it on a whim after church one Sunday and it was SO GOOD!! And they have "veggie" fries--who know a fried carrot could be so good?! But not, you know?!

Worst fries I've ever had. Ever. Burger was so-so. Left feeling unsatisfied and upset that we wasted our money. Won't be back.
