Just 18 months after it opened in the Alto Center in the space between Pet Food Express and the U.S. Post Office formerly occupied by Caffe Oggi, SmashBurger has closed. The move comes just one month after Weezy’s Grass Fed Shed, the burger joint that opened around the same time as SmashBurger in 2013, closed its restaurant at 507 Miller Ave., a location that has seen a trio of much-ballyhooed restaurants come and go in the past four years. Weezy’s has also closed its once-popular location in Terra Linda.

SmashBurger’s arrival in Mill Valley sparked a lively discussion about the number of burger joints Mill Valley could support. With SmashBurger and Weezy’s adding to Pearl’s Phat Burgers, Super Duper Burger, In-N-Out Burger and McDonalds – not to mention the great burgers at places like Bungalow 44 and Buckeye Roadhouse – many wondered if it was excessive.
