Smashburger giveaway

Disclosure: Smashburger hosted me at a media preview for a complimentary sampling of the new menu.  Smashburger is sponsoring this giveaway.

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending a media preview for a brand new location (6970 E. 22nd St) of a favorite fast casual restaurant here in Tucson: Smashburger.  Smashburger serves up fresh (never frozen) 100% Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and a variety of salads.


If you’re not familiar with the concept, Smashburger gets its name from the method they use to cook their burgers.  They start with a meatball and then, well, smash the meat on a 400 degree flat grill to sear in the juices.  They adhere to a similar process with their chicken breast for the juiciest and most flavorful chicken sandwiches.


Unlike the fast food burger chain giants, Smashburger sets itself apart by highlighting regional flavors and customizing a burger for each city.  Here in Tucson, Smashburger offers the Arizona burger that–in addition to lettuce and tomato– boasts habanero cheese, guacamole, chipotle mayo and fresh jalapenos on a spicy chipotle bun.  Those particular flavor combinations run a bit spicy for my sensitive palate; I prefer the spinach, cucumber and goat cheese chicken sandwich.   And for the ultimate burger joint indulgence, you really can’t go wrong with one of Smashburger’s handspun Häagen-Dazs shakes (my personal flavor of choice would be the salted caramel).  One last thing worth mentioning is that Smashburger also offers a small selection of wine and beer



Have you ever tried a Smashburger?  Would you like to?  I’m giving two lucky winners five coupons (each) for a free Smashburger entree.  Enter below.  Good luck!

  1. I have only been once when it first opened in Tucson. Need to go Again The salted caramel shake sounds great

  2. Well, I guess we’re going to have to give it a try. Thanks for the info and review. :) (and giveaway!!)

  3. My favorite is the BBQ, Bacon, and Cheddar Burger…but I agree that the chicken sandwiches are top-notch! Also, you can’t go wrong with a Haagen-Dazs milkshake. Try Strawberry (so good!).

  4. The BBQ Bacon Cheddar Burger is the best – even the $15 burger places can’t touch it.

  5. I have never been to Smashburger, but now based on your blog post I’m tempted to skip the healthy dinner I planned for tonight and head over there. Holy cow! I might have just dripped some drool on my computer. Those skinny onion ring things on top of the burger look delicious, and those shakes are probably my love language. I’m pretty sure, at least. Thanks for the recommendation!

  6. We’ve been wanting to try them for a while. With a new location on 22nd, we just may make it there now!

  7. Those fries look very tasty! I love places that offer lots of fun toppings and flavor options for their sandwiches. I will have to try smash burger!
