And the burger related posts keep rolling today on "Appetizers" ... along with word about Ella Dining Room & Bar offering its new "bipartisan burger" special, local fans of "fast-casual" dining can sink into news that Smashburger is opening its Elk Grove location at 10 a.m. Wednesday. This south area franchise at 7701 Laguna Blvd. in Elk Grove marks the Sacramento area's fifth Smashburger location. And evidently, Sacramentans love their burgers. The San Diego area is the only other part of California which boasts Smashburger eateries.
Smashburger has gained a following with burger aficionados for making their food to order and using a meatball-sized mound of Angus beef which is then "smashed" into a patty shape over a buttered grill. In a 2010 review of Smashburger's Citrus Heights location (5500 Sunrise Blvd., Citrus Heights), the Bee's Al Pierleoni awarded Smashburger a notable 3 out of 4 stars and a hearty thumbs up on its "juicy burgers."
Hours will be be 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. For more information: www.smashburger.com
