Smash Burger has launched a year-long “Roadtrip to Taste the USA” promotion where every two-months they will introduce a new burger from a major city in the United States. What a fun idea! Currently, they are stopped in Las Vegas, Nevada and offering the Vegas Burger. We had the pleasure of tasting this DELICIOUS burger which consists of 100% Certified Angus Beef patty topped with American cheese, fried egg, beef bacon, grilled onions, haystack onions, and Smashsauce on an egg bun. We highly recommend you swing by and have a bite– or 2– or 3 of this delightful sandwich as it will definitely satisfy your burger craving! We can’t wait to try the rest of the “Roadtrip” burgers! Bring em’ on!
