Smashburger to Open Pembroke Pines Location

Smashburger is opening its second Broward location, giving fans of attractively priced 100 percent certified Angus beef burgers in the southwest part of the county reason to rejoice.

The Pembroke Pines location of Smashburger will open at 14928 Pines Blvd. on Wednesday, March 21 at 10 a.m. The fast-casual chain also has a location in Coral Springs that opened last November.

The restaurant will offer some items specific to the South Florida market, like a skinny chicken sandwich, a grilled or crispy chicken breast topped with a choice of goat cheese, spinach, avocado, mango, pineapple, or grilled onions. A special Smashburger will also be unveiled at the opening-day celebration.

chicken sandwiches, and salads we've created and we look forward to

bringing these specialty items to Pembroke Pines", he said.
