Restaurant review: Stay far, far away from Smashburger’s veggie burger
The appearance of this veggie burger could easily send a weak person into counseling.
Minus the butternut squash couscous veggie burger at Ketchup Burger Bar, Smashburger’s veggie burger is the worst veggie burger in Dallas. Maybe Texas. The veggie burger arrived without cheese, which made the visual experience even more frightening than the terrycloth dress the Hooter’s girl was wearing while having dinner with my cheating ex-boyfriend with a double life. At least cheese had the ability to disguise the charred remains of burger pain. Look at this veggie burger. Who sends out anything looking this shady?
Walking over to the counter to find out who in the back is bonkers was the only option. The manager made a confused face before retrieving the sadly charred, pretend veggie burger without cheese. The kitchen forgetting cheese was way down the list of things Smashburger needs to worry about. If this veggie burger could talk, it would belt out "BOO!" Holy freaking moly. In the history of veggie burgers, there’s no way another exists as mangled and un-easy on the eyes as this one. It was nothing short of a travesty to veggie burgers everywhere. The appearance of this veggie burger could easily send a weak person into counseling.
Pretend you are a manager solving a food problem for 14 seconds. A no-brainer plan is to return with an edible veggie burger. Delivering an acceptable-looking replacement is the right thing to do. Besides, wouch, the only way to describe the feeling I was feeling after seeing the second charred veggie burger is: What in the name of grease is going on with this cheese? It looked like two pieces of cheese started out the same, then ended differently because of mystery liquid. This cheese is officially being inducted into the Cheese Hall of Shame.
No one around here is trying to be a Smashburger burger hater. There are probably carnivores leaving Smashburger in love. Vegetarians must give thanks for their happiness. With so many locations, it seems like Smashburger could test out a couple of other veggie burger recipes or at least include a warning label on the menu.
