Smashburger Expands

Smashburger, the self-proclaimed "fast casual" burger import from Denver, has done well enough since its debut in Houston last December that three more restaurants are opening here.

Smashburgers are "one hundred percent Angus." They're "smashed on the grill to sear the meat and seal in the flavor." From personal experience they are also a bit of a delicious mess to eat, thanks to the glob of cheese and substantial amount of condiments on top.

Each Smashburger will open on a Wednesday later this month.

First up is a restaurant in the Westchase area at 10705 Westheimer, Suite C, opening on July 15.

A second will open July 22 in the Energy Corridor at 1635 Eldridge (Eldridge and Briar Forest).

And a third, located at 5520 Buffalo Speedway (Buffalo Speedway and Bissonnet) in the West University area, will open July 29.

The 1,850-square-foot Westheimer location seats 55 diners -- 30 in the patio area, where diners are urged to pair their burgers with wine or beer.
