If you're a burger fan in the east metro, you probably already know that today is opening day for Smashburger in Woodbury (9965 Hudson Road). City Pages rated Smashburger the best of the new crop of burger joints in town.
Along with its usual menu, the Woodbury location will be selling a "Twin Cities Smashburger," made with Angus beef and topped with cheddar and Swiss cheese, garlic grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on a toasted onion bun. The restaurant also serves a chicken sandwich, hot dogs, and salads, plus veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries.
The Denver-based company has embarked on a major expansion in the Twin Cities in the last year. The Woodbury store is the fifth local franchise. An Eagan branch is set to open February 17.
