The sixth Phoenix-area SmashBurger will open its doors at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, May 25 in the old Stella's spot at Tempe Marketplace. The Denver-based chain is known for its cooked-to-order burgers: a 1/3 or half pound Angus beef ball placed on a grill and literally smashed into a flat patty. They also offer spiced fries, onion rings, chicken sandwiches and locally oriented specials such as the Arizona Devil Dog topped with spicy pepper cheese, guac and jalapenos, and a Cactus shake infused with prickly pear syrup.
The company currently plans to add another 20+ SmashBurger locations around town.
If you can't wait one extra day to get your next fry fix, the Tempe Marketplace SmashBurger is hosting a sneak peek lunch and VIP dinner on Tuesday, May 24. Register online for a chance to win entry to the pre-opening events.
