Openings and Closings

Aurora burger lovers get a serving from Smashburger

Attention, Aurora residents: Your wait for the "better burger" is almost over! Smashburger will open its ninth metro location tomorrow at 2630 South Parker Road. Taking its name from the cooking method, a Smashburger is either a one-third or half-pound ball of 100 percent Angus Beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in the flavor.

"Smashburger is on its way to becoming Denver's favorite burger place," proclaims Tom Ryan, Smashburger founder, in announcing the official opening of the Aurora store, which was delayed a week because of permitting issues. (Read Jason Sheehan's interview with Smashburger founder Tom Ryan here.)

"Our burger-centric menu is outstanding," he continues, "but for those that live with burger lovers and aren't themselves, there are other options." And those options include Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs and Smashsalads, as well as Haagen-Dazs shakes and malts.

The Aurora store -- the 35th Smasburger in the country -- opens tomorrow at 10 a.m., and will stay open until 10 p.m., seven days a week.
