McAllen, TX (PRWEB) February 20, 2011
Smashburger, a fast-casual "better burger" restaurant will open its first McAllen location on March 24, 2011. The restaurant located at 1020 Nolana Loop and the corner of North 10th Street will bring 100-percent Angus burgers, an array of sides and delicious shakes to Rio Grande Valley residents. The new location will feature the Texas Smashburger that caters to big, bold flavors Texans love.
Named for the cooking method used to create the perfect burger, Smashburgers are a one-third or half-pound ball of 100-percent--fresh, not frozen, Certified Angus Beef smashed on a flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the "better burger" experience, Smashburgers are served on a toasted artisan bun and topped with a selection of real cheeses, the freshest produce, and top-quality condiments.
Smashburger is known for its savory burgers, but the restaurant also serves up delicious Smashchicken sandwiches, Smashdogs, and Smashsalads, with sides like veggie frites and rosemary and garlic-seasoned Smashfries. Burger lovers can pair their meals with beer, wine, Häagen-Dazs shakes, and root beer floats.
"Burger lovers across the state of Texas are hooked on Smashburger," says Smashburger Founder Tom Ryan. "We love Texas and will continue to spread the burger love to our friends in the Rio Grande Valley."
Based in San Antonio, SB Alamo, LLC brings more than 80 years of restaurant industry experience to Smashburger.
"This is our first Smashburger in the Valley and we are looking forward to bringing the Smashburger experience to the residents of the Upper Valley," says Mike Griffith Director of Marketing.
