University Station (Westwood): Now Open!


Tuesday night I was invited to attend a sneak preview of Smashburger which opened this week at University Station in Westwood, MA. Perhaps, I've been living under a rock, but I had no idea that University Station even existed. I looked it up online and before even stepping foot on it's property, I knew I was in love. University Station is a mixed use (retail, commercial, and residential) location adjacent to the Route 128 MBTA/Amtrak Train station. Stores and restaurants just started opening in March so everything is brand new.

Currently, the following stores are open:

Target
Home Goods
Charming Charlie
Nordstrom Rack
David's Bridal
Petsmart
Dress Barn
Sports Authority
Famous Footwear
Ulta
Kay Jewelers
Marshalls
Michael's
Yankee Candlee

You can also grab some food or refreshments at:

Panera
Starbucks
Smashburger

Many more stores (including Wegmans) and restaurants (including Not Your Average Joe's) are opening throughout the spring, summer, and fall so you'll definitely want to check back often. You can click HERE for the most recent store updates.

So after finding this place and falling in love, I got to make all my dreams come true by sampling MANY burgers and shakes at Smashburger. Talk about a dream night!

Yum!

Double Yum!
This is Smashburgers second location in New England with plans on the horizon for more. The burgers start with 100-percent—fresh, never frozen, All-natural Certified Angus Beef and is smashed on a 400 degree flat grill to sear in the juicy flavor. The burgers are then served on toasted artisan buns and topped with a selection of fresh produce, real cheeses, and high-quality condiments. My favorite burger was the BBQ, Bacon, & Cheddar because, really how can you go wrong with that?! I also loved the Oreo Hand Spun-Shake as well as the Peanut Butter and Jelly one. Really there was deliciousness all around that night! You can check out their full menu (including regional specialties) HERE.

So if you're like me and didn't know that University Station existed, you should go check it out!

*Disclaimer: I attended a media preview event at Smashburger with samplings and received assorted goodies from University Station stores. As always, all opinions are my own.*
