Smashburger opens in Tucson

I hope you're sitting down for this:  ANOTHER hamburger chain has opened a location in Tucson.

I just wrote a blog post about my visit to Freddy's a few days ago (click here to read it).  Now, it seems another one of these style of hamburger restaurants is invading Tucson.  By "another one of these style", I'm referring to what is marketed as a supposedly better hamburger eating experience than the legacy chains like McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King.

The newest one of these fancier chain restaurants to join In-N-Out Burger, Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, and Culver's is:  Smashburger.  The new restaurant is at Grant and Swan at the Crossroads Festival strip mall.

I looked at their menu online and it seems the Smashburger menu is pretty similar to the other ones.  Burgers, a few chicken sandwiches, a few salads, and malt/shake concoctions... although theirs is made with Haagen Dazs Ice Cream. 

I'll be waiting for a while to go try Smashburger until the crowds die down.  I'll post a review then.
