If you’ve been reading about Smashburger this and Smashburger that, well, it’s because the burgers are actually really good. And if you’ve been wanting to try it out, there will be one more location for you to chose from. The Kearny Mesa location is scheduled for its grand opening on September 8th. Smashburger is also offering Smashfans a chance to be invited to a sneak peak party scheduled for September 7th. Instructions are towards the end of SB’s press release below.
If you don’t know what Smashburger is (must not be reading a lot of SD food blogs, huh?), you can read about my first VIP sneak peak of the Rancho Penasquito location here, Kirbie’s at other locations here and here, Leanne’s here and here, and Mary’s here and here. Here’s the PR for the newest location.
Smashburger, a fast-casual “better burger” restaurant is gearing up to open its sixth San Diego location on Thursday, September 8, 2011. The restaurant will open in Kearny Mesa at 3737 Murphy Canyon Road, Suite F. This is the sixth of eight San Diego Smashburger locations slated to open in the next year. San Diego’s other Smashburger restaurants are located in La Jolla, Del Mar, Mission Valley, Downtown’s East Village and most recently, Rancho Peñasquitos.
Named for the cooking method used to create delicious burgers, a Smashburger is 100-percent—fresh, never frozen, Certified Angus Beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, every Smashburger is served on a butter toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.
Smashburger San Diego features a regional menu created with the best regional flavors and tastes in mind. The San Diego regional menu includes:
- The signature San Diego Smashburger featuring fresh avocado, fresh cilantro and onions, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and chipotle mayo on a fresh torta roll, served with a wedge of lime.
- The BBQ Ranch chicken sandwich featuring grilled or crispy chicken breast with applewood smoked bacon, haystack onions, lettuce, tomato, bbq sauce and ranch dressing on an artisan butter toasted egg bun.
- The Sunset salad featuring a fresh mix of garden greens topped with strips of grilled or crispy chicken, sliced marinated balsamic tomatoes, raisins, cranberries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, blue cheese, served with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
- Regional microbrews from San Diego-based breweries as well as wine from California-based wineries.
Smashburger is known for its savory burgers, but the restaurant also serves up delicious chicken sandwiches, grilled and seared hotdogs, and delicious salads, with an array of sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic–seasoned Smashfries. Guests can pair their meals with beer, wine, handspun Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root-beer floats.
“We are excited to bring Smashburger to the Kearny Mesa neighborhood,” says Smashburger Chairman and CEO David Prokupek. “San Diego has been extremely welcoming to the Smashburger brand and we looking forward to sharing our great tasting burgers with the Kearny Mesa community.”
