Alexandria, VA (September 18, 2023) – Smashburger is bringing more of its signature burgers to the DC and DMV-area with the opening of a new restaurant at 5920 Kingstown Center in Alexandria. Brand new to the menu – cocktails and beer.
The new location is the first Smashburger to open with a full bar offering a variety of ice-cold beers on draft and cans along with signature cocktails such as Blackberry Smash, Smoke & Spice Margarita, Smash Rum Punch, Coconut Mule and more.
The grand opening celebration will take place on Saturday, September 23 with all day specials including $5 Classic Single Smash Burgers and $10 wings and beer. Attendees will also enjoy Smashburger swag, cocktails served by Elizabethany, the afternoon host of HOT 99.5, and Washington Commanders ticket giveaways with the HOT 99.5 Street Team from 12-2 p.m., while supplies last.
"We are thrilled to bring another Smashburger location to Virginia, this time with an elevating dining experience and full bar,” said Toni Bianco, SVP Global Operations for Smashburger. "Now the residents in Alexandria and the surrounding community will have the opportunity to enjoy a great tasting, high quality burger accompanied by a refreshing cocktail or beer, all at an affordable price."
Smashburger uses only 100% fresh (never frozen) Certified Angus Beef for its burgers, which are smashed on a hot seasoned grill in an open kitchen. The menu also features grilled and crispy chicken sandwiches, turkey and black bean burgers, and fresh salads, with signature sides like Crispy Brussels Sprouts and SmashFries®. For a sweet treat, customers can enjoy hand-spun milkshakes. Eye-openers include the Breakfast Smash® Burger, topped with an egg, bacon, and aged cheddar on toasted brioche.
