Smashburger Opens New Location in Irvine

We dined as a guest of Smashburger
The best kept treasure of South Orange County has now branched out and opened up their newest location in Irvine. SMASHBURGER!

My family has been lucky enough to have a Smashburger location close to our house so we go often. The first time I bit into their Truffled Mushroom Swiss I was hooked.


Not only was I hooked but so was my son, so much so that he said he wanted a Smashburger birthday.


My son has become a burger snob because of Smashburger and if it’s not a Class Smash then it’s not worth it. We have turned many friends onto Smashburger, so many that I should be asking for some stock in the company (Just kidding – but I would take an order of Smashfries and a Nutter Butter Shake please).


No joke, friends from as far as Fullerton and as close as Irvine have come out to our local burger joint to experience what I call gourmet burgers at fast food prices. Here’s the low down on Smashburger.


The menu focuses primarily on burgers, chicken sandwiches and salads, with a wide variety of toppings and customized options (they offer a grilled cheese and hot dog option for kids as well). You can order one of their signature burgers or customize your own.

Yesterday my husband and I decided to live on the wild side and tried something other than our usual Socal Burger and Truffled Mushroom Swiss with jalapenos. I tried their Avocado Ranch Black Bean burger and my husband tried their Spicy Buffalo! We were not disappointed.


Smashburger has a special cooking technique for the burgers which involves smashing the meat on the griddle, locking in the juices and grease, giving you the ultimate burger taste. Whenever you think burgers you think fries and Smashburger does not disappoint when it comes to fries.

My favorite is their Smashfries, fries tossed in rosemary, olive oil and garlic. If you don’t like fries (seriously, you don’t like friends?!?!? you are missing out!) then you’re in luck they also have fried pickles, haystack onions, sweet potato fries and veggie frites.


Once you’re done dining make sure you fill out a card form to be part of the Smashclub if you don’t get a card you can fill it out online.


Once you’re a Smashclub member, you get sent coupons and information about new menu items!


I really can’t do justice writing about how great the food is at Smashburger, do yourself a favor and try them out. Their newest location in Irvine just opened at 3831 Alton Pkwy, Irvine, CA 92606 next door to Albertsons. For more locations, menu and information about Smashburger please visit their website .

I’m an OC mom of two and photographer. I love living in Southern California and want to expose my children to all that it offers. I love taking my kids on adventures and capturing their every moment so much so that my kids find it odd if I don’t take their pictures. You can see my work on
