My Husband and I were invited to join in the Grand Opening of the new Kearny Mesa Smashburger here in San Diego. Lucky for us, they are pretty much around the corner. Having never been to a Smashburger before we were excited to go check them out, as in a DATE. How nice, just the two of us.
they had a live Twitter feed going on the wall
We had 6:30 reservations and when we got there, I met Dara who had invited me in email *waves hi*. The place was already packed having started at 5:30, but our wait in line to order was not bad. It gave me a great opportunity to click some photos of the Restaurant. Plus having looked at their menu online ahead of time I knew what I wanted. We were also offered samples of their shakes, but we let the kids behind us have those.
We found a tiny little table near the booths on the back wall and got our fountain drinks and looked over the menu again as we waited for our food to come to our table. Another round of shakes came through, this time strawberry, yum. The place had a constant line of customers coming and going, it was great to see so many come out for their Grand Opening. They had a live band playing out front where you could also sit and eat if you wanted. Our food arrived, and boy did it look great.
Gosh it was all so good. The burger was juicy and flavorful ( I had a bite of his, loved the cilantro in it), my chicken burger was great -add the chipotle (horseradish) mayo, even more wow. On our way out we were offered another shake sample, the Oreo...oh my, that was my fave.
The prices are like any other burger place, reasonable, it is à la carte though, perhaps making it a little more $$...but it's good food, fun atmosphere and friendly service. OK, writing this late at night is not fair. Now I want an Oreo shake and burger. lol
You may follow them on Twitter and Facebook also. Come see photos taken at this event here. If you're a local, come on over to 3737 Murphy Canyon Rd. and have a great burger and shake oh and fries too. For other locations check here.
