Smashburger Restaurant Review

Tuesday, August 6, 2019
For my third restaurant review, I want to take you all with me to Smashburger.

Smashburger is a fairly popular burger restaurant; hence the name Smash and Burger. There’s only one here in the Charleston area located in the town of Summerville which is a few miles out of Charleston.


My husband suggested going here for lunch after we saw a movie. The restaurant is located in a shopping square so there’s a ton going on in the area. You can shop, go to a movie, grab FROYO…it’s a pretty cool location to have this restaurant.

I ordered their standard Black Bean Burger. Obviously Smashburger is widely known for its grass-fed angus beef patties, but they do serve this option as well. The only downside is that you can’t customize the black bean burgers.

Taking a look at their menu, they offer such a wide range of toppings and flavors for their beef patties. You can get an avocado, mushroom, spicy jalopeno. With the black bean you only get lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles. Which, don’t get me wrong, I love the classic burger toppings. I would have liked if I could jazz up the Black Bean Burger in the same fashion as the beef patties.

How Did It Taste Though?

The Black Bean Burger tasted pretty good. I’ve had some bland veggie burgers, and this one wasn’t. It had the right amount of seasoning and it wasn’t dry. It didn’t taste like a mock-meat burger like Gardein, but it definitely tasted like a black bean burger.


All of the burger are paired with your choice of fries, sweet potatoes fries, or tots. I opted for the tots. Now, the tots were very good.

I know you’re thinking, “Well you can’t go too wrong with tots.” But, I really appreciated that it was crunchy and crispy. Trust me, I’ve had some soggy tots before and it isn’t good.

I would come back here. It’s a nice place. I think next time I’d like to explore their shakes as well. I haven’t had a great burger and shake in a while!
