Smashburger Scorchin Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Update: check out our review of this sandwich

The latest to hop aboard the chicken sandwich bandwagon? Smashburger. The chain ordinarily known for the grill smashed burger patties are now “inciting guests to test their spicy-food threshold with the announcement of the brand’s newest premium menu creation”. – the Scorchin’ Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

The sandwich promises:

  • Nashville hot crispy chicken
  • Spicy red pepper mayo
  • Pickles
  • Classic toasted bun

The spicy new treat will be on menus through till June 15th 2021. At our local Smashburger in Salt Lake City the new sandwich retails for $7.29.

As part of the launch, the chain is calling for peace amongst the various fast food brands waging the so called Chicken Sandwich War; with that in mind they’re offering a new “Peace Hour” promotion starting through Thursday, April 22, 2021 from 2-5pm where all locations will be giving away a FREE Scorchin’ Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich to any fast casual or fast-food employee who comes into a Smashburger location dressed in their work uniform during this time frame.
