Smashburger Sauce

Sadly, it has been a while since we’ve been to a Smashburger. My mouth waters just thinking about our last visit. I searched around the web and found the recipe for the sauce they use on their burgers, and just had to make it. I made up a batch of Smashburger sauce for grilled burgers last night and it was outstandingly good. And it was just as good for dipping french fries (in my case, sweet potato fries).

SmashburgerThere are two variations of this sauce on the web, one that uses dill pickle juice and one that uses lemon (which is probably more true to the actual sauce in the restaurant). I didn’t have a lemon on hand, so I went with the pickle juice and it was great. I’ll try lemon next time, but if you don’t have a lemon, just go with pickle juice and you’ll be very happy!

Smashburger, Hamilton, Ohio

Oh, we love a good burger, and boy did we find one. I was reading somewhere the other day that Smashburger was one of fastest growing hamburger chains, and that they have a very dedicated, almost cult, following. So, I went to their website, and lucky happy me, there’s one not too far from Jungle Jim’s International Market (where we just happened to be going the other day).

So off to Smashburger in Hamilton, Ohio we went. The one in Bridgewater Falls is in a little strip mall in front of an outdoor, open mall. You order at the counter, and they bring the food out to you. Service was fast and very pleasant.

Smashburger, Hamilton, OhioAnita ordered classic burger (American cheese, lettuce tomato, ketchup, onion, pickles, and smash sauce on an egg bun) with a fried egg on top and a side salad.

SmashburgerI also ordered the classic, but got it ‘big’ and a side of flash-fried veggie frites.

Smashburgers are made from 100% fresh Angus, smashed onto a hot griddle and cooked perfect. The toppings were all very, very fresh, as was Anita’s salad. I absolutely loved my veggies. They are fried really quickly, hit with some sea salt, and served with a dipping sauce. They were really outstandingly good.

The burgers were messy, drippy, yummy, great. If I close my eyes while I’m eating, you know I’m enjoying it. Anita really liked hers too. She commented several times as to how fresh everything was. Smashburger isn’t cheap, but it is good. I score it high on our Mater Rater scale:

'Mater RaterI wish there was a Smashburger closer to Indianapolis. I think there will be soon since they are adding stores all over. I’d like to try the rest of their menu as everything on it sounds great! (Oh, and they also have beer… )

The Smashburger in Hamilton is close to one of my favorite places, EnterTRAINment Junction.
