I liked the feel of this place. Interesting burger choices. The fries were very thin, thinner than typical shoestring fries. If the fries had been warmer, I would have given this review five instead of four stars.

Eaten here several times and loved it each time. Ingredients are fresh, tastes great, and menu is lengthy enough to satisfy anyone. My personal favorite are those crispy onion straws. Always a safe favorite. Staff is efficient and ready to help.

Went here three times in 5 days while in town on business as we don't have one where I live. Service was always friendly and fast. Restaurant was always clean. Food was fast, although once I got the wrong burger but didn't notice until I got back to my hotel.

The past few times we'be been to this location, it's been hit and miss on what items are available. They seem to be out of A LOT of menu options due to being "extra busy". I understand that they're close to the convention center and hotels, so yes, they will be busy. They should well enough familiar with busy times... More

Not sure if it was just the sheer amount of people in Louisville that week or if the service was just that slow, but they always had a line. When I did finally go, the food was pretty good. Not a whole lot of fast options in downtown Louisville. This area was certainly a hotspot. Good food, not too expensive,... More

Went on a Sunday and got there early. Good thing we did as when we left the line was going out the door!!! Husband had the classic burger and I had a spinach salad. Both were good but my husband really liked the crust on the burger. You hear about not smashing you burger when cooking but on a flat... More

Waited in line at Smashburger with only 10 people in front of me for over 15 minutes. I don't think that we ever moved in line. It appeared there was only one person taking orders and they could not have been doing a good job since the line wasn't moving. I hope this isn't indicative of the chain since eventually... More

We visited Smashburger on a visit to Louisville. The restaurant was very busy, but they kept things moving well. The burgers were very good and the service was acceptable. The restaurant was clean and well-maintained. The prices were reasonable. I would return.
