Our teens wanted to stop here as we don't have it in Canada. They loved the burgers and fries. Always a big lineup.

Recommended by our relative whom we were visiting we gave this a try. First off, try not to go during the lunch hour. It's packed, but the lines move surprisingly fast. Use a debit or credit card and you often get to pass those in front of you using cash. The menu is limited but there are several choices. It was helpful that a team member was outside lining people up during the rush hour and handing out menus to peruse. We settled on the burgers (my wife getting the Shack cheese burger and I getting a double patty burger without cheese) and a shake (actually a MALT, because I love malts and so few people still offer them). There is minimal seating upstairs, but there was a downstairs area too. Many people are getting meals to go, so we were able to sit at a window seat (great to people watch). I also liked that a team member was filling up ketchups in to go containers to eliminate a probable line of people doing their own, The burgers were great as was the malt. There are both standard malt flavors (we went with the salted caramel) or higher priced current special flavors. This addition is on a level with 5 Guys but with many more choices and equally good burgers. In fact, for the same price as our malt you can get a 16 oz. beer. Or even wine.

This place serves good food but they need to find a way to manage the cluster of people trying to eat there.

The double w/ cheese was very good, the fries are bigger and better than most places.
Will be back for sure

We saw Danny Meyer on 60 minutes right before our trip to NY and decided to go to a shake shack - there was one right near the Natural History Museum and we went there. It was busy- we had a hard time getting a table to sit at- but not terrible as we did not go until after 1 pm. We got a cheese burger, a hot dog, fries and a vanilla shake. They were all very good but they were just a a burger, hot dog ,etc. People love to go over board on things in America. Other places have cheeseburgers and hot dogs and shakes just as good- maybe not all in the same place. Try it and decide for yourself.
