Mark and Sandi Larson along with operating partner Gretchen Kenney, proprietors of Alaska SB, LLC are proud to open the first of three Smashburgers in Alaska.

Years of successful businesses for the Larson’s along with Kenney’s experience of managing in restaurants and hotels, the trio is excited to bring this fresh new experience to Anchorage.
“We are excited to bring Smashburger’s 'better burger' to Anchorage, Alaska. Satisfying and real, basic and good, affordable and fresh – Smashburger is a place with a burger soul,” says Smashburger Co-Founder & Chief Concept Officer, Tom Ryan. “With a broad menu of handcrafted burgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, signature sides and handspun shakes, Smashburger has something for everyone.”
The 2,200 square-foot South Anchorage Smashburger, which has dining room seating for 57 guests and patio seating for 24, will be the first location to open in Alaska. Regular restaurant hours will be 10:00 AM – 10:00 PM daily. For holiday hours, please call the restaurant directly at 907-33 SMASH.
Smashburger only uses 100-percent—fresh, never frozen, all-natural Certified Angus Beef that is smashed on a 400-degree flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. To further the “better burger” experience, the delicious burgers are served on toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of the freshest produce, real cheeses, and highest-quality condiments.
