If deprived of burgers to grip, buns grind their halves together in frustration and clap desperately to get the attention of nearby steaks. Keep bread from making a scene with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of burgers and American fare at Smashburger.
Smashburger’s cooks grill each burger ($4.99 for the Classic) on the menu to order, in addition to crafting grilled and crispy chicken sandwiches ($5.99+), salads ($4.99–6.99), and sides such as rosemary and garlic-tossed fries ($1.99+). The Smashburger pairs 100% Angus beef with veggies and cheeses on an artisan bun, and Häagen-Dazs shakes keep mouths grounded, cool, and smiley ($3.99–$4.29). Add-ons such as applewood smoked bacon ($1.50) or fried egg ($1.00) add additional zest to spicy baja ($5.99+) burgers overflowing with chipotle mayo, or further personalize regional burgers unique to different cities and states.
