Kinda gonna give this one a barely 2 stars... all I wanted was the Smashburger I remember that crisp edge with that juice running over... unfortunately all I got was the driest burger I've ever eaten. I got the mushroom truffle and it had no sauce at all I could Pull the cheese off in one layer. My husband got the brisket and we couldn't tell where the burger began and the brisket was?? Our fries could stand up by themselves, I know I'm sorry... but they obviously had been sitting under a hot plate light for sometime. I'm disappointed because my husband has never had it and I talked it up. Let's get it back to how it was.. hot fries with fresh rosemary and hot fresh burgers with that great bite of greasy goodness.
I take my family to this nice place from time to time! This is the best place to pass a nice evening. I visit this spot at least once a month. The meals are excellent, the workers are professional and the prices are affordable. I enjoy being in this restaurant for a rich meal.
EVERY item in my online order was made incorrectly. Staff was rude.
Food was great and the milkshakes were the best! I hardly ever splurge on a milkshake but I got a strawberry one and it was delicious!
The double bacon cheeseburger was very good. Wish they offered a list of available toppings. The smash fries were good but would have been even better if they were hot. Guess it is better to eat in for hot fries
Won't sell milkshakes because " they are waiting for their ice cream to thaw". Headed to Five Guys!
Great burgers. I recommend getting the smash fries gives it a nice seasoning to it.
Mike took very good care of us. The Rosemary tots are delicious.
We ordered two milkshakes on doordash and didn't receive them because Smashburger "ran out of milk" excuse me? This location is DIRECTLY across from a United Dairy Farmers store. The manager should have had someone go across the street and buy a few gallons of milk. No excuse.
always great food m great service
It was raining and the floor is large ceramic tiles. It seemed slippery. Could be remedied with runner carpet.. I thought the place somewhat untidy, but the staff was friendly, polite and genuine. I will visit again. I had their signature classic, which was very good.
As far as this location goes, the employees are friendly and *honest* and the store itself was tidy and clean. Now, as for Smashburger, I think it's now a Steak 'n Shake in disguise. The employees mentioned "new ownership" and the changes they've made. The burgers are now SMALL and there's just one size. Kids burger and regular burger are the same and if you order the bigger burger, they just double-stack the patties. The fries taste just fine, but they are the same shoestring style like Steak 'n Shake. Want a kid's meal and want ketchup or some other garnish ? Too bad, you can't. Kids meals are cheese only. Order a regular sandwich.... Lastly, the shakes - $5 for a 12 oz. The employee actually "warned" me when I mentioned it, so I passed. I have no idea if these changes are location-specific or not. We ate at another location here in town some months before and it wasn't like this so I don't know if the changes happened in between or if it's only this location.
Very Good burgers. Worth the drive to brown street
Conservation at lunch: (me) "you're not eating your tots. Are you going to put them in your pocket?" If you've never seen and old movie called Napolian Dynomite you need too. It's so funny and that's one of my favorite scenes. Not much of a burger lover, I cant get the yummy burger at Burger Fi in Cincinnati out of my mind, so I just keep looking. This is the closest I've found in Dayton. Heads and tails above Five Guys and several others I've tried. Of course my husband is the real burger lover in the family. What does he say about Smashburger? "We'll have to do this again." That's high praise from him.
I really like Smash Burger the closet thing (but not really) to In n Out this California girl can find in Ohio. I made my order via the website and it was done when I got there! (I get all nervous and weird ordering from folks). The staff was nice for the limited contact I had with them.
Among our favorite go to quick meal place. Lots of really tasty, creative choices.
The food was good with the exception of the brussel sprouts. They were burnt and dry. But everything else was very good.
Disappointed on this visit. I ordered the Avocado Bacon Club and what didn't I get? The avocado! Hey, it's the name of the sandwich, you better make sure you put the main ingredient on it! Of course I didn't find this out until I got back to the office. So basically I got a bacon cheese burger and they got my buck for not giving me the avocado. And while there waiting for my to go order, the cook in the back forgot to drop the fries in. Once the burgers were done, we waited for the fries to cook. The staff gave this guy enough grief over it that I dont need to give him more. C'mon folks, get your act together.
Service and food are exceptional
This is one of my favorite places to get cheeseburgers, and their Haystack onion rings are to die for. The service is very good for a fast food restaurant. All in all very good.
Very nice staff also. Food was great
The staff was super nice. I went with my son who had been there before and I didn’t know what to get. He always get something crazy so I knew better than to get what he gets lol I asked the employee at the cash register. She was really sweet and helped me pick something. We ate at the restaurant and when we were done we noticed people weren’t tipping the girl who busses the tables. It was messed up because some of the tables were totally messed up. I guess some people don’t realize or care if you sit down in a restaurant and leave your mess you need to put some money on the table when you leave. Shame
Order was wrong no one got the right burger went to feed seven people ended up going elsewhere horrible
The burgers are awesome, the fries are awesome and there milkshakes are good. I have no complaints. Keep up the good work.
The Emerson Blue was ah-mazing! I got the grilled cheese and it was very good....the tomato basil bisque that is paired with it is flavorful & cheesy. If you love cheese, I recommend this sandwich.
This place has gone downhill. Like most places on brown, no one seems to care abt their job
Not only did they screw up mt order, I also got horrible food poisoning. They gave me a burger instead of a chicken sandwich, and I ate it anyway because I got it to go and didn't have time to go back. I regret that decision. I use to love that place. Never again. This all happened on 1/11/19.
Perfect place to have tummy filling burgers at inexpensive prices. Loved this place!!
Service was relatively quick but dining area was really crowded. Needs a bigger space. Food was meh. There are better places to get a burger nearby.
The workers are always very nice and professional. They are always trying to keep the store clean.
Love Smash Burger! There isn't one by where I live so it's always a treat when we see one!!
Not bad. First time there. Loved the Brussel sprouts! Burger was good. Maybe a little on the expensive side for what you get. But overall not bad.
Their burgers are gourmet, they're good tho, reminds me of Red Robin burgers, but smashburger is a place where you take your date out for dinner, and if she doesn't like it then she's not worth it. Tell her to eat McDonald's from that day forward. Pretty cool place if you love bugers
This location consistently serves delicious burgers that are ALWAYS hot and fresh tasting.
My wife and I went here just recently. In the past the food was pretty good ( the Smashburger classic ). However, this last time, the burgers were EXTREMELY SALTY. Yuk !!! Don't know what the cook was thinking, as he really unloaded with the salt shaker. In all likelihood, it's going to be a quite a while before we go back to this establishment. These were a couple of the worse burgers my wife and I ever had. I didn't have to say anything to my wife as she brought it to my attention concerning the extreme salty taste. I just thought " how right you are !". At the time, this location was selling gift cards because of the holiday season. We were going to purchase a $50 one. But because of our bad burgers, we decided to take a pass. Going to 5 guys instead right down the street next time.
From Michigan. Never been here before. Only other burger place that tasted this amazing was in Wisconsin at a pub
I've had Smashburger in other cities. This is not my favorite location of all the others I've been to, but it's usually pretty quick and still satisfying. I can grab lunch and be full while still getting pretty yummy food!
