Smash Burger Culver City

Went today for lunch. Mixed Feelings. Parking lot (next to CPK, west of Overland south side of Venice) crowded. Line to order. Much longer wait (they give you a beeper -- mine didn't go off, I would have waited if i didn't recognize the party before me getting theirs and go up on my own). I ordered a double-size bbq-bacon-cheddar which had onion strings -- $6.99. Burger was smaller than I expected for a "double" at that price, maybe a quarter-pound. It was indeed tasty, the smashing process made for a good sear char, so the burger had a lot of crusty goodness. I liked the bun and the generous onion haystack strings. But I could only find a seat on the patio, and the sun made it hot. Simple french fries ($1.99) and fountain drinks ($1.99) were on the expensive side so I settled for water. I am signing up for their online offers, and would go back -- non-rush times -- for a 2-for-1 burger or free side or milkshake. But at twice the price and so much more time, a double-double at In'&'Out or a bigger burger at Hole-In-the-Wall or The Shack will rank higher on my rotation.

Note-- Moderators, I know Smash Burger is a chain. But it is brand new to L.A. My review is very focused on this one new location, and i beg you to keep this on the L.A. board.
