Why go for burgers here and there so many better options? Smash burger serves a clean meal and a fast food atmosphere. With every restaurant in town serving hamburgers that are much better and priced the same reason to stop here is when you have a wet swimsuit.

Are you a burger aficionado? Then this is the place for you! My family (grand kids in particular) love it here. The burgers are smashing...sorry about the pun. Can't go wrong here!

They have a very good selection of build your own sandwiches choosing either a standard hamburger or a great grilled chicken (or a breaded one). The onion rings are particularly good if you pile them on your sandwich. They have recently added a gluten free bun for those who want to go for that.

We have eaten here several times and have always been pleased. We spend a week in Del mar almost every year. This is the best reasonably priced food in town. We haven eaten in the highest priced place in this town and were not as impressed as we are with smash burger.

This was our first time to Smashburger. Many friends had talked about this place, so maybe our expectations were a little high. The prices were more than we like to pay and the quality of both the burger and the fries were not necessarily better than other burger places we go to.

Good burgers and fries! A nice low key to eat...but sit outside for views of the ocean and smell of the surf!

My husband wants a juicy hamburger and I want a delicious, interesting salad. Smash burger makes us both happy. Beautiful and picturesque Del Mar location.
