Smashburger Medford

Smashburger recently opened their second location in Mass in Medford in a newly renovated plaza on Riverside Ave.

They are next door to Panera, so you get free Wifi.

No surprises inside, order at the counter and the food is brought to you. I took one of the hightops in front of the counter. Obviously, their signature is the smashed burger but the kitchen was enclosed so you couldn't watch them smash the burgers.

This is the Classic Smash, ordered large, ($6.69). The standard is a dollar less. "American cheese, Smash Sauce, ketchup, lettuce, tomato, pickles & onion on an egg bun." I also ordered the Haystack Onions ($2.49) that comes with a side of Texas Petal Sauce. The smashed burger had a pleasant coarse grind and a good char and, I think, a beefy flavor. It was hard to find the beefy flavor amidst all the toppings and sauces. The burger was also sitting in a pool of grease, I guess from the burger that only partially landed on the bun. The fried onions were delicious! Light, perfectly fried and crisp with a nice seasoning and it didn't need the sauce at all.

Yes, the burger was smashed all right. Of course, it was cooked all the way through but it was still somewhat juicy. I must admit that I thought this was expensive at nearly ten dollars without a drink.
