NEW SMASHBURGER NOW OPEN WITH FIRST VIRTUAL DRIVE-THRU IN HOUSTON
Guests Can Order Any Day by Mobile App to Zip Through the Special Pickup Lane
HOUSTON, Texas – Fans of Smashburger have another Houston location and the fastest, most convenient way to pick up their favorites from the better-burger brand: a virtual drive-thru lane for diners ordering ahead on the website or by mobile app.
The new restaurant and virtual drive-thru is located at 5102 Richmond Avenue in Houston near the Galleria. This will be Smashburger’s tenth Houston location and its seventeenth in Texas. It seats 34 diners in its 1,538-square-foot interior and 36 on an outdoor patio.
“If anyone knows beef, it’s the people of Texas, so we’re extra-proud of our success in the Lone Star State,” said Carl Bachmann, President of Smashburger. “We know Houstonians will love the convenience and efficient service of our first-ever virtual drive-thru, which lets them speed through pickup and get to their better burger experience faster than ever.”
Smashburger perfected the art of the burger with its signature cooking technique, in which a ball of Certified Angus Beef – 100% fresh, never frozen – is “smashed” onto a seasoned grill in an open kitchen. Now it’s serving a better pickup experience with the virtual drive-thru, a dedicated lane where diners who’ve ordered ahead can grab their meal and go faster than ever.
Whether ordering in person or virtually, dining in or driving thru, guests at the new location will enjoy all the menu classics Smashburger is famous for. Along with a satisfying selection of made-to-order burgers, they can choose from grilled and crispy chicken sandwiches, turkey and black bean burgers, wings, fresh salads, and signature sides like Crispy Brussels Sprouts and SmashFries®. They can end their meal with a hand-spun milkshake or start their day with an eye-opener like the Breakfast Smash® Burger, topped with an egg, bacon, and aged cheddar on toasted brioche. Kid-friendly options are also available.
The new Smashburger Houston location will be open Sunday-Thursday 10:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 10:30 a.m. - 11 p.m. For more information and to download the app for mobile ordering and pickup in the virtual drive-thru, visit www.smashburger.com.
