Smashburger opens in the UK next week and it looks seriously incredible


If you're already indecisive about where to go for your monthly burger fix then things are about to get a lot worse.

Smashburger started in 2007 and has more than 300 stores across the US. Its special way of making burgers involves - yep, you guessed it - smashing the fresh beef on to a hot buttered grill. Ooft.

And now their first UK store is opening in Milton Keynes on May 25. Bath and Brighton Smashburgers will open in the summer too.

If you're getting all sad that they're not opening one where you live, then hold up; Tim Lowther, the company's managing director, says they're looking to open 35 stores our side of the pond over the next few years (with 5 or 6 by the end of this year, fingers crossed). Which, BTW, will also create 1,400 new jobs.

You know what, it's time we just showed you the goods. Seriously, feast your eyes on this lot.

If you like spicy burgers you'll be sorted.

You can get healthy stuff too - they do sides of fresh green beans & carrot strips.

OK, fine, we admit it - they're fried too. #noregrets

You can create your ridiculous size burgers.

Pick which bun you have (including gluten-free), whatever toppings, the cheese and the add-ons, like applewood smoked bacon.

FYI, they do shakes too. This one is mint oreo flavour.


Sorry but HOW good does the BBQ, Bacon & Cheddar burger look?!

It comes with the "haystack onions" on top. Which we're glad to hear you can get as a side too - along with fried pickles, sweet potato fries and normal fries, obvs.

They do a Truffle Mushroom Swiss Smashburger one with truffle mayo. YUM.

Oh, and there's crispy chicken on the menu too. Burger place of dreams.
