Smashburger to Open in Raleigh

Among the nation's fastest growing fast-casual burger restaurants, Smashburger will open its second Triangle-area location Wednesday, Dec. 17 in the Shops at Falls Village in North Raleigh. Thankfully, Lunchboy will get a chance to check it out at a invite-only event on Monday night!

According to Smashburger reps, the community is invited to opening day for a taste of the "smashingly fresh food, fun onsite activities and a celebration for the season of giving by helping raise money for Communities in Schools of Wake County." The Raleigh eatery's proprietors are donating 10 percent of total proceeds from opening day through Friday, Dec. 19 to the local nonprofit.

 
Smashburger's claim to fame involves smashing fresh certified Angus beef on a 400-degree flattop grill to sear in the juicy flavor. The "better burger" experience extends to toasted artisan buns, savory sides including rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries, haystack onions and veggie frites (flash-fried, seasoned green beans and carrot sticks). Beverages range from hand-spun milkshakes to root beer floats and craft beer. 




Here's an insider tip: The forecast is calling for a 100 percent chance of snow on opening day. You don't want to miss the flurries along with fun games and tasty giveaways throughout the day.
