The beef makes the difference. These are at the top of the list for fast food burgers. One weak spot is the milkshakes. You pay top dollar for a Hagen Daz shake that you expect to be tasty. Every time I order a shake, the ice cream is freezer burned and the shake tastes like it.

This was my first time at Smashburger. I went into the store with my prescription sunglasses and noticed I couldn't read the menu boards...wrong polarized displays...tilted my head and all was well! I ordered a single burger, some truffle fries, and a shake. A tasty and filling meal, it was a little on the costly side (particularly for the shake... More

Our first time at any Smashburger. Entered at about 6 pm. Ordering at counter was quick and easy. We sat outside on the patio where our drinks (beer) came very quickly and the hot food shortly after that. We had the basic burger and a bacon cheeseburger. Sides were sweet potato fries and onion rings. All food was very good... More

My guilty pleasure is a good chicken club with a haystack on the side. This place is good once in a while for an indulgence.

We stopped in Aliso Viejo on the way from Los Angeles to San Diego and were not disappointed. We were greeted with a smile and had friendly service the entire visit. The food was excellent, we had burgers and fries, their specialty!

Not a fan. Tasted a few burgers from here and didn't like one bit. I was not happy with the sides either. I will have to stick with my fatburger.

Although we usually have liked this store, the recent addition of some very unfriendly (and in one case downright rude) obviously first-job teens to staff the register has really turned us off of this store. Like it or not, people with money to spend on lunch or dinner still do not want to be faced with grim-faced, goth style tattooed... More

Great service. Burger was very salty, onion fries extremely greasy. Even the Haagen-Daaz malt seemed sub-par. The cooks need to spend more time scraping the grill and draining the fries than using the salt shaker.

OMG! The burgers here are so juicy you go thru a lot of napkins. The shoestring fries are the best. You get anything you want on the burger. The staff are great.

Went there for lunch, ordered the bacon BBQ cheddar burger and onion haystacks. $10 was kind of a lot for the size but it was pretty good.
