The Triple Double
You'll need to travel far and wide to find a burger this good for $4 bucks! If not for one flaw, this burger would be a perfect 10.
A few things to note:
The 3 slices of cheese are not all "slices" - the top and bottom are covered with slices of American cheese as advertised, however the "melted aged cheddar" in between the burgers is actually more of a cheese sauce; which was fine, and actually delicious.
I have to commend the folks at Smash for their use of white onion. The onions were as crisp and sweet as can be which is a refreshing change from the bitter red hybrid onions we've seen far too often. The tomatoes were a deep red and very meaty and the thick cut dill pickles added enough acidity to contrast the richness of the meat and cheese perfectly. I would have loved to see crisp iceberg lettuce, but the leafy green stuff worked okay on this burger. The Smash Sauce was tasty as always and not overdone.
The only issue I encountered was the "eatibility" of the burger. The egg bun, (which seemed to me to be a potato bun masquerading as an egg bun) was very tasty, but it's size was not sufficient enough to handle the burger with toppings.
The burger is delicious and a great value, but things will get messy, very messy, making it impossible to eat this burger while driving.

I ordered this burger to-go and it was still excellent. I've got to try it again and eat it fresh at the restaurant.
