That's right... The Best Fries Ever! They really have reinvented French Fries. I didn't think that could be done.
First off they are, hand-tossed with garlic, rosemary and olive oil, which makes for an amazing flavor, but I think the most distinctive feature about them is their size.
I have seen small cut fries before, but never like these and somehow I just felt cool eating them.
In the case of fries, smaller really is better.
Smashburger is "smashing" it's way to the top of the burger chain, so what is the problem?
This isn't just any burger chain, and definitely shouldn't be compared to the regulars (Burger King, Mc.Donalds, Wendy's)
I was recently invited to a VIP party at my local Smashburger, and to say I was impressed would be an understatement.
I had never been to a Smashburger so this was a completely new experience for me.
As soon as I walked through the door I could smell all the yummy food. (always a good sign )
I can't say a lot about the staff, they were incredibly friendly, but I was at a VIP event and I would have been shocked if they had been rude. lol
I can say that I have heard other reviews (on a normal day) that have stated that they have some of the friendliest employees, and it's no wonder, unlike most food establishments they offer incentives and perks to their employees and only hire those with a big smile and a passion to work for them.
I had a a small sample of their shakes and all I can say is YUMMY!! And if you read the pic. above you can see why!
That's right... Häagen-Dazs shakes!! I absolutely love Häagen-Dazs ice cream, it's some of the highest quality ice cream you can get!
I felt like Oliver Twist - " Please, sir, I want some more" Next time you are feeling like treating yourself, be sure to head to Smashburger.
(I apologize for my horrible camera phone pics.)
My hubby got the Avocado Club Burger (be ware they also have a chicken sandwich with the same name) I accidentally got the burger when I ordered.
Luckily they had no problem taking it back and bringing me the chicken, so make sure you specify what one you want when ordering.
He loved his burger, these are never frozen 100% Certified Angus Beef burgers.
And if you are wondering about the smashing process, thinking... "doesn't that just make them small and get rid of the juiciness?" I can promise these are large burgers and full of flavor!
If you are worried about size you can also get a "Big Smash" considering the normal burger was plenty big enough I don't even want to know how big this sucker is.
Once I got my Avocado Club chicken I had filled up on a lot of fries lol, but it looked so good I had to eat it!
The "ranch dressing" they put on this is amazing!! I put ranch in quotes, because it wasn't like any ranch I have had before. I wish I could buy a jar of this stuff!
Every last bite of the Smash Chicken is juicy and free of any fatty pieces.
I would highly recommend getting this, the flavor combinations of the "ranch", bacon tomato and avocado were amazing.
About half way through my chicken I looked over to see the woman next to me eating a salad, if that's what you want to call it.
For my fellow Seinfeld fans this is the "BIG Salad" Elaine always wanted. This salad ate 4 other salads for breakfast! This picture doesn't even do it justice.
Needless to say you can guess what I will be getting next time I go back.
My overall opinion of Smashburger? A huge two thumbs up!
And for my Utah readers be sure to stop by the Fort Union location for some amazing food served up every day by a super friendly staff. Enjoy!
Huge thanks to Smashburger and TSG for the opportunity, and the best chicken & Fries I have ever had!
