    I have one down the street now, im still in favor of In & Out double double burger but has anyone tried a Smashburger yet? I can smell their burgers from the street!, In & Out still is king in LA, but Smash maybe its closet competitor

    I'm surprised they are starting another one with FatBurger, In N Out, Chick Fil A etc all around there... I actually see a resemblance to fatburger.

    Smashburger just took Chicago by storm. They have pretty good burgers, but their fried pickles are the hidden gem!

    Love Smashburger! I do not go into the local ones any more because the local franchisee is extremely anti gay. Strange I did not know that as they are good friends of the family. They do have it for sale, so maybe I can find a gay man to buy it.

    Had it once. Not bad. Pretty good actually but I can't see it being too special in a field of good burgers. For me it will be like The Habit. A good burger that I never get.

    Probably will become the next fast food to be anti gay...

    As a gaymer, the first time I saw this store I did a double-take since the color and font of the text of their sign is exactly that of GameStop.

    I had it and i thought it was terrible... It had a weird sour taste to it and was not worth the dollar.

    3/10 would not buy again.

    hey mr. social media marketing "guru" asstard douchewipe who places "real" blogs and posts on social media sites pushing your fatty unhealthy shitburger product to gay men who are interested in HEALTH AND FITNESS> guess what???
    you are a worthless turd, look at what you do with your life, you go on gay fitness and sex forums and SELL HAMBURGERS --- you are lame!!!

    maybe you should consider QUITTING YOUR EMPTY EXISTENCE, YOUR HATEFUL JOB and going back to school for social work or child development or forestry--something useful to the world other than trying to make body-conscious gay guys who are TRYING to get in shape EAT YOUR FATTY BURGERS icon_rolleyes.gif

    methane from cow farts creates more greenhouse gas than all cars and trucks in the world and you are contributing to GLOBAL DEATH and HEART ATTACKS TOO.

    shame shame shame

    Far be it from me to intrude on your global warming stopping- vegan eating- self-deprivation lifestyle (emotional eaters often feel enormous guilt about eating – and especially enjoyment of eating) , maybe your plastic bubble you live in has a crack in it, I dont get all emotional when i eat like you apparently do, scare myself silly if i ate an oatmeal cookie, I really dont have to worry about calorie count although I do eat everything in moderation and switch it up every now and then, im not selling hamburgers as you suggest, this IS the food and recipes forum, I would suggest that you start you own forum topic about your global warming stopping- vegan eating- self-deprivation lifestyle to attract others in your same bubble, the rest of us who enjoy real food now and then and cooking it may comment about the best hamburgers voted on by the normal people, http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/2013/02/18/get-your-buns-to-zagats-top-25-burger-joints/1928829/, there are people in this world out of your bubble known as the Food critic, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_critic, all based on taste and appeal.....and the dining experience, regardless of your calorie count, cooking shows and cooking competition with real food are hear to stay, you are the minority icon_rolleyes.gif

    Dont hate because some of us like.. real food.. like your grandma used to make

    If you are in the So. Cali area, or Tempe Az, you all should try out Portillo's!!! It was started in a Chicago burb and recently expanded to Cali and Arizona. The burgers are flame broiled and fantastic. So is the itailan beef and cheddar croissant.
