    Two of those in my town shut down recently. SmashBurger closed two months ago and last summer I bought a Groupon to Backyard burgers only to find the location went out of business by me, so I never got to use it lol …luckliy it was only a few dollars though. But I’m planning on redeeming my birthday burger at Ruby Tuesday next week😋. Thanks for the informative post
