Smashburger…now open in Golden Valley

On Tuesday evening, we had the opportunity to visit one of Golden Valley’s newest eating establishments, Smashburger

As a general rule, I do not like to go to restaurants on opening day.  I like to usually wait a week or so, to allow time for them to work out the bugs.  This was not the case with Smashburger.  We went about 7:00 pm and the place was packed.  Even though there were a lot of people both inside and on the patio, the staff did a great job of taking orders and getting people through the line rather quickly.

My wife had a cheeseburger, my son had chicken strips and fries and I had a chicken sandwich.  My wife and I also had orders of what they call SmashFries.  These are french fries that are tossed with rosemary, olive oil, garlic and other herbs.    They have a pretty extensive menu of burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, hotdogs and brats.  You can also get a burger with either chili, fried egg or garlic sauteed mushrooms.  Definitely unusual toppings for a burger or chicken sandwich!

Smashburger is in a good location, right on the corner of Hwy 55 and Winnetka in Golden Valley.  I think that they will do well here.  It is unusual to see a new business open during tough economic times, but they should be able to survive the economic roller-coaster.

This addition gives Golden Valley another great eating establishment!
