If you’ve never had a smash burger…we’re about to let you in on the secret you’ve been missing. And if you’re in on the secret, well, we’re #sorrynotsorry for making you crave them. Because we’re totally drooling over MoonLit Burgers and you should be, too!
To back up, smash burgers aren’t your typical thick steakhouse burgers. They start out as a ball, which is then smashed onto a hot griddle. So they’re thin patties that get a beautiful sear on both sides, and they’re basically the best way to eat a burger. You can’t help who you love, right??
And MoonLit Burgers is making smash burgers that have us swooning. They don’t have a storefront, so you’ll have to keep an eye on their Instagram and Facebook to find out where they’re popping up next. Spoiler: it’s most Saturdays at io Deli in Mount Lebanon, sometimes at Station in Bloomfield, and you should probably just follow them already.
The menu is small, just a handful of smash burgers to choose from, but don’t let that fool you. They tend to sell out quickly, so make sure you pay attention if they offer online ordering ahead of time. Which they usually do at io Deli. The Double-Full Moon Burger is their signature smasher, and we recommend starting there! Trust us, you’re not going to regret it.
We’re pretty sure once you try MoonLit, you’re just going to want to go back ASAP. So, the only question is…what should we order for you?This content was provided by a local, independent contributor to Made in PGH, a lifestyle blog.
