Smashburger Opens in Coral Springs

Smashburger, the burger chain that smashes your meat before grilling it to order and finishing it with your choice of a plethora of toppings, is opening its first South Florida location, in Coral Springs.

The fast-casual restaurant opens Tuesday, November 15.

A special reception the day before will feature food blogger/hamburger aficionado Burger Beast smashing the first honorary burger. In celebration of his participation, Burger Beast is giving away an invitation to the exclusive party on his site, so play his trivia game for a chance to win.

Smashburger says it uses 100-percent-fresh, certified Angus beef for its

burgers. It then smashes the patties on a 400-degree flat grill to sear in

the juicy flavor: a violent means to a

delicious end. The restaurant also serves chicken sandwiches, hot dogs,

fries, and Häagen-Dazs

Smashburger will be located at 1840 N. University Drive, Coral Springs.
