The wait is over: Tucson's first Smashburger location opens today at 4821 E. Grant Road, bringing yet another burger option to the growing number of choices here in the Old Pueblo.
What defines a Smashburger? The media packet sent out by the company puts it like this:
At Smashburger, the secret is in the smash. It starts with 100-percent—fresh, never frozen, Certified Angus Beef and is smashed on a 400 degree flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, the delicious burgers are served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of the freshest produce, real cheeses, and highest-quality condiments.
Smashburger also serves milkshakes made with Häagen-Dazs ice cream, salads, French fries seasoned with garlic and rosemary, among other things. There's more on the restaurant over here.
