Patties and patrons alike can get smashed at the new Smashburger in Kingstowne.

Set for a grand opening celebration this Saturday (Sept. 23), the burger chain’s new location at 5920 Kingstowne Center will be its first with a full bar, selling beer and cocktails with names like Blackberry Smash, Smoke & Spice Margarita, Smash Rum Punch and Coconut Mule.

“We are thrilled to bring another Smashburger location to Virginia, this time with an elevating dining experience and full bar,” Toni Bianco, Smashburger’s senior vice president of global operations, said in a press release. “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.”

For the grand opening, the restaurant will offer its classic single burgers for $5, along with $10 chicken wings and beer. There will also be Smashburger merchandise on hand, cocktails served by HOT 99.5 host Elizabethany, and Washington Commanders ticket giveaways from noon to 2 p.m., while supplies last.

Located in Suite 210 near the Regal Kingstowne movie theater, Smashburger will be open daily from 10:30 am. to 10 p.m. The 2,794-square-foot restaurant can accommodate 71 customers, including 12 seats at the bar.

Founded in Denver, Colorado, in 2007, Smashburger has grown to 236 locations across eight countries and 34 states, including in Sterling and at National Airport in Arlington.

However, Smashburger hasn’t ventured into Fairfax County until now. The company opened a restaurant in Fairfax City in 2012 that has since permanently closed.

According to the press release, Smashburger emphasizes its use of never-frozen certified Angus Beef for its burgers, which get “smashed” on a grill in an open kitchen. Other menu items include wings, chicken sandwiches, turkey and black bean burgers, salads and milkshakes.
