When it comes to LA burger joints, a girl can have a long list of requirements.  Any restaurant that’s going to be added to the list of regular favorites has to be inviting, clean, unique, and not to mention the burger itself better be pretty good! A good burger in LA is equal parts tasty and healthy, and any really good burger place offers a grilled chicken and vegetarian option as well.

The *brand new* Smashburger restaurant just opened at 10704 Venice Boulevard #B, Ste. 330 in Culver City, and TGIFguide was invited to give it a try!

Smashburger’s mission to become Los Angeles’ favorite burger place, and after we sampled the menu and met the owner, we can say Smashburger is getting close to completing its mission. Everything was fresh and delicious, and we can’t wait to go back again.

Here are some “must try” items on the menu!
