A new burger joint is coming to the River City...
Smashburger is opening in the Metro Centre, located at 4712 University Street in Peoria.
At the new location guests can enjoy the 'Windy City Smashburger,' 'Chicago Smashdog' and a variety of sides and shakes.
Smashburger says "the secret is in the smash,"which involves "smashing" the burgers onto a flat grill to sear in the flavor.
The burgers are freshly-made with 100-percent Angus Beef.
