A freshly smashed and grilled patty of 100% certified Angus beef capped with gooey pepper jack, cheddar cheese, and grilled Anaheim chiles on a toasted spicy chipotle bun. Sound like a burger from a swanky restaurant? It’s actually one of the special features currently being slung fast-food-style at Smashburger, which just opened a new outpost nearby in Chinatown.
It’s called the Colorado burger, and it’s the latest in an ever-changing roster of guest stars at Smashburger. They join the menu alongside staples such as the Classic Smash, topped simply with cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, and, of course, the signature Smash Sauce. Prefer something lighter? Opt for a turkey, grilled chicken, or black bean sandwich instead. Smashburger doesn’t skimp when it comes to the salads, either. The BBQ Ranch salad will keep your taste buds engaged with crispy chicken, applewood-smoked bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and a bold barbecue sauce. Make sure you save some room for a handspun milkshake! Smashburger has options ranging from a classic vanilla or chocolate milkshake to a salted caramel shake.
