    Smashburger in DSM

    Heard the president of this rest. chain speak on Murphy and Fales show a week ago or so...described their burger-making approach and it sounded amazing.

    Anyone tried this place yet? He stated they will be opening a place in Ankeny as well.


    There was one?

    bump

    I did Saturday and it was really good. Most burgers are $6-8ish for a 1/3-1/2lb.
    Fries were good too.
    Something like this would do a boatload of business in Ames/Campus.

    Re: Smashburger in DSM

    I went last week. I had the Iowa burger with Maytag blue cheese, applewood smoked bacon and onion strings. Wife has the southwest burger. Both were phenominal as were the fries and onion strings we had for sides. I REALLY liked the fries with the olive oil and rosemary.

    Re: Smashburger in DSM

    I have to agree with the sentiments of others above. Great burgers. I built my own and topped it w/swiss, grilled onions, red onions and jalapenos. I prefer pickled jalapenos to fresh (too much of that "raw vegetable" taste that doesn't really taste like anything), but it was still great. I'll be back.

    Man, I didn't even see that as an option, I just ordered regular fries. Those sound good though.

    I had one of their spicy burgers and it was very good. Agree with the smash fries. Also keep in mind that they have BEER.

    What Des Moines needs is a Quaker Steak and Lube. There is only one in Iowa and it's in Council Bluffs. AMAZING food!

    Agree, they are in Pennsylvania and Ohio a lot I think. Quite fun hangout places too usually, along with some great bar food.

    Gonna try this Smashburger out though, hopefully they have a Big Kahuna burger, I love a tasty burger.
