Smashburger to open first Baltimore location

A number of you might be saying, “Oh, another burger joint – big deal” but this one is a “fast, casual” not a “fast food” burger restaurant. The eight year old Smashburger chain cooks your 100% Certified Angus Beef burger to order. The beef is always fresh, never frozen – smashed and cooked on a 400 degree flat grill searing in the natural juices for as Smashburger says, “a better burger” experience. 

You can order from a multitude of tried and tested burger and toppings combos like the Classic Smash, Avocado Club, Buffalo & Blue Cheese, Spicy Jalapeno Baja, Truffle Mushroom Swiss or build your own from a selection of buns, sauces, toppings and cheeses.  Smashburger creates a signature burger for each location, i.e. Baltimore’s will be the Chesapeake with local horseradish manufacturer Tulkoff’s Tiger Sauce, cheddar cheese, red onion, lettuce & tomato on an onion bun. If you were to go to a Philadelphia Smashburger you could order the Philly with grilled onions, Cheez Whiz & Gulden’s Spicy Mustard on a pretzel bun. 

Of course, there are other choices: Smashchicken with a selection ofchicken that is marinated and grilled or crispy, Avocado Ranch Black Bean Burger, fresh salads, kids meals and get this, seriously – Häagen-Dazs Hand-Spun shakes.  The sides are definitely more interesting than most burger eateries with Smashfries - tossed in Italian olive oil, rosemary & garlic, Spicy Buffalo Fries- dry seasoned with Frank’s Red-Hot & served with a side of ranch dressing, and Sweet Potato Fries or Sweet Potato Smashfries.  If you are a sole that loves to put an egg on it, they are available as well. Personally, I’m interested in the haystack onions. You can check the Baltimore menu HERE.  You’ll note a variety of certified organic freshly brewed and bottled HONEST Tea beverages and local craft beer.

 Look for Baltimore’s first Smashburger to open in Fells Point, at 616 S. Broadway between Fleet  and Aliceanna Streets in the newly developed Marketplace at Fells Point with an estimated opening the beginning of April. Smashburger Baltimore will be open 10am to 10pm daily. For more information, visit or follow Smashburger on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. Guests are also encouraged to join Smashburger’s Smash Club to receive the latest news, tastiest promotions and exclusive coupons.

“We could not be happier to make our debut in Baltimore and bring the Smashburger experience to all who live, work, and play in this vibrant city,” said Tom Ryan, Founder of Smashburger. “Our goal is to bring great tasting burgers back into people’s lives, by providing an array of fresh, high quality ingredients and tempting sides to choose from.”
