Smashburger’s chefs cook each Smashburger ($4.99+) on the menu to order, in addition to crafting grilled and crispy Smashchicken sandwiches ($5.99+), Smashsalads ($4.99–$6.99), and Smashsides such as rosemary-and-garlic-tossed Smashfries ($1.99–$2.99). The Smashburger pairs 100 percent Angus beef with veggies and cheeses on an artisan bun, which can be supplemented with sips from handspun Häagen-Dazs shakes ($3.99–$4.29) to keep mouths grounded, cool, and smiley. Add-ons such as applewood-smoked bacon ($1.50) or fried egg ($1) add additional zest to garlic-infused mushroom-swiss burgers ($5.99+), and these locations also serve up an original Arizona burger ($5.99+) ignited with habanero cheese and jalapeños.
