Smashburger, the better burger fast casual restaurant, announces the launch of its brand new menu, launching nationwide today. The new revamped menu will feature two brand new menu items: Adult Chicken Tenders and Scorchin’ Hot Chicken Tenders. Inspired by successful menu testing at select locations and the popularity of the 2021 Scorchin’ Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the new chicken offerings will be available in 3-piece and 5-piece quantities and are made of crispy, all white meat chicken, with your choice of sauce – BBQ, Ranch, or Honey Mustard. The Scorchin’ Hot Tenders have an extra kick to them with the juicy tenders dipped in the brand’s Nashville Scorchin’ Hot seasoning. Additionally, the fan-favorite Colorado Burger will be launched as a permanent menu item nationwide as part of this new menu rollout.
“As a culinary food-focused brand, we continue to take an aggressive approach into menu innovation and have continued to diversify our product portfolio with the launch of these two Chicken Tender offerings,” says Carl Bachmann, President at Smashburger. “After the success of our non-burger offerings, like the Scorchin’ Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich, we wanted to offer our guests a more convenient way to enjoy some of Smashburger’s high caliber chicken products. We hope that our regulars notice our reinvigorated menu and test out some of our new menu items, and that guests who haven’t visited in a while enjoy our elevated fast casual dining experience featuring premium top-quality, fresh ingredients.”
In addition to the new menu items, Smashburger will be bringing back its premium Beer Battered Pacific Cod Sandwich to this revamped menu for a limited time. Made of wild-caught Pacific Cod lightly dipped in a signature batter infused with lager, and served with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and creamy tartar sauce the fish item will be available until April 19th. With fresh toppings and a craveable flaky texture, Smashburger’s fish sandwich takes foodies on a flavor-filled journey and creates a perfect pairing to craft beer, as evidenced by the recipe.
The better burger brand is also adding one of its most beloved premium burger offerings, the Colorado Burger to the nationwide menu rollout. The Colorado Burger is made with Certified Angus Beef, and is topped with grilled Anaheim chiles, melted aged cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on a spicy toasted chipotle bun. Previously only offered in the Centennial State, the spicy menu item pays tribute to Smashburger’s American West origins offering a bold flavor combination that guests crave and will be available in single and double burger offerings.
Guests can order Smashburger for take-out (in-store and curbside pickup) or delivery on Smashburger.com, mobile app or through DoorDash, Postmates, Uber Eats and GrubHub.
