    Smashburger

    Thinking about hitting Smashburger in Ankeny for the first time. Anyone tried it?

    Yup, it is pretty tasty. Not cheap, but I enjoy it.

    Haven't been to the one in Ankeny, but the one in West Des Moines (Clive?) was not impressive....I had their normal burger and it just tasted like grease to me. They do have a smash brat that I might make a return trip to try out though...

    WDM one is good so I assume Ankeny is as well. Make sure you get the fries.

    I've eaten at the one in WDM many times. Pretty good food, not the least expensive place. They do have problems understanding the word "plain", but we got a free burger out of that, so no complaints here.

    The brat is pretty good. It's hard to find a brat at a resturant, so I love being able to get this. Not sure I like all the fixings they put on it, and I usually end up using a couple napkins to soak up the grease before I eat it. Other than that, it's good.

    I'm sensing a trend here....

    It is a little greasy but that's not so bad.

    I like it but no way do I think it should cost that much.

    I thought it was awful too. I don't plan on ever going back unless I want to feel like crap the rest of the day again.

    Re: Smashburger

    I go to the Ankeny one around once every two weeks. I like the Iowa Burger.
    I don't eat a lot of Hamburger, but when I do, I go there.

    They have a snaggletooth that works the front counter and a few employees that looked like that got grabbed from a WAL MART parking lot. Not sure why a business owner would do that?

    As soon as an


    opens, they will get my burger business..........

    That's about where I am. Might as well go to Fuddruckers or Red Robin if i want to pay that much.
