Does anyone have experience eating at Smashburger, either positive or negative? My husband and I recently ate there and I asked questions to the on duty manager and it sounds okay, but I would like some positive feedback before taking the leap and trying somewhere new. Thanks!

My son is severly allergic to nuts/peanuts (airborne) and we have eaten there a couple of times. He loves their burgers and no reaction. We asked and they do NOT use peanut oil in their cooking.

I have a question about this place, too. We just ate there tonight. My youngest, who has shown NO reactions to any foods until tonight ordered the hot dog w/fries & chocolate milk. She mostly ate the fries w/ketchup and the chocolate milk. We rarely eat out, and eat mostly simple foods that I prepare at home. She ate about 2 bites of the hot dog, so I don't think she had enough of the nitrates (which we avoid at home) to induce a reaction...

Halfway through her meal, her hands got super red and a bit swollen and were hurting her a lot. She's 4 so she couldn't describe it any better than that it hurt.

I immediately asked for allergen info and ingredients list. I only received allergen info. I asked more questions, and learned that the fries come frozen, not fresh like In-N-Out. So, my guess is an MSG reaction?

Does anyone know of any other allergens in their food? I'm mystified!

thanks,
Alexandra

I've been to the one in Riverside Square Mall in NJ. The cashier told me he himself is allergic to peanuts and assured me everything was safe. I double checked with the manager as well. For me it was a positive experience.
I am sorry to hear about your daughters reaction Alexandra. Have you come to any conclusions?

I was at a different SmashBurger last night. They have ButterFinger and NutterButter options their shakes. I did not know this at my last visit. Perhaps cross contamination from one of these items is what caused the reaction?
