Smashburger serves award-winning burgers to tempt any palate. First we start with fresh, never frozen, 100 percent Certified Angus beef. Every morning we roll the beef into meatballs. Once a guest’s order is placed, we paint the grill with butter and smash the meatball on the grill for the first 10 seconds with a special “smashing” tool we developed. This smashing of the meatball, mixed with the butter, creates a caramelized sear on the bottom of the burger. This sear produces a great beefy flavor, and it also forms a “shell” that keeps the natural juices in the burger. We season our burgers with our proprietary seasoning and then just as the juices start to percolate, we flip the burger to keep all of the juices in. This “smashed-to-order” process is the magic behind what makes a Smashburger taste so juicy and delicious. However since the best burgers deserve the best toppings, we don’t stop there. Smashburgers are placed on an artisan butter-toasted bun and topped with only the finest produce. Guests can enjoy one of Smashburger’s signature burgers including special local recipes that Smashburger creates in each market to reflect local tastes. Guests can also choose to create their own burger masterpiece choosing from an array of delicious toppings including artisanal cheeses, fresh produce and a variety of sauces. Visit us at any of our four south Florida locations, Coral Springs, Pembroke Pines, Miami and Kendall.

Morton's actually exists today because of...hamburgers! Years ago, before co-founders Arnie Morton and Klaus Fritsch really knew one other, they both worked at the Playboy Club in Montreal. The club was changing the menu, and Klaus cooked a hamburger that was sent out for Arnie to try. Arnie burst into the kitchen, demanding to know "Who cooked that hamburger?" When Klaus stepped forward, he wasn't sure if Arnie was going to be pleased or not but was relieved to hear him say that it was the best he'd ever tasted. From that day forward, they called it the "Million-Dollar Hamburger"! Since day one, Morton's has used the same suppliers for our aged prime beef and other meat. They select the best of their inventory for us–and if it doesn't meet Morton's standards, it doesn't get cut for their steaks. Prime Beef at Morton's is aged for 23-28 days and then portion cut by highly experienced Chicago meat cutters. Their meat arrives fresh to your locations ready to partake in the ultimate dining experience!
