I called my friend a liar when she said shake shack could stand up to five guys. I stand corrected. I love them both but if I had to pick one....last hamburger of my life .....Shake Shack no question. Very important- don't waste time on fries....get 2 burgers. Yes, I'm serious.

we have no idea about this restaurant and it was recommended by our daughter not to miss when we visit the east coast. we ate the one at Washington, D.C. and it was a long line. the price was just ok, not too pricey and the quality of food is great.

Super yummy burgers! Love the basic Shack Burger. Fries are decent, shakes are super thick but delish. I like that they serve wine. It's a fast food place, but I enjoy a glass of red wine with my burger, so it's nice they offer that. It's a popular place and there is often a wait, but it's worth it.

Shake Shack was rated in the local newspapers here in Singapore as the BEST burgers and fries in the USA. I could not understand what the hype was about until I tried the food. Then it made more sense. There was an inner struggle going on where I was trying to compare the food at Shake Shack to In-N-Out. It's... More

Being from Texas, I LOVE a good burger. This is by far the BEST burger I have ever eaten. I am so thankful the location isnt too close to home or else I would be obese. The lines can be long so consider going early. They have now opened a location at Tyson's Corner. I dont know what they do... More

You would be far better served by a typical McDonalds. Fries, hot dog and milkskake costs $14.00. That is for a a small serving of fries that were so heavily salted you could hardly taste t them, if they were fries at all actually. There were only four actual fries in the order, the rest, they are handcut daily on... More

Stopped at the Shake Shack just south of DuPont Circle for the first time on a Saturday afternoon. Crowded but the line moved quickly, more of a eat on the run place than a comfortable sitdown restaurant. I ordered a basic ShackBurger (no sauce) with fries and a 50/50 drink. Absolutely great, cooked medium, fresh, flavorful and juicy with sturdy... More

If you want a great burger at a reasonable price, dig in here! Quick counter service and delicious burgers and fries. The shakes are a must! Though its a chain, the food quality is great!

Better than five guys, cookout and in and out. The only negative to be said is it can get quite crowded and Pricey but worth it. The smokeshack burger is awesome!

Actually went to the one at Nats Park. The concrete was really good--excellent custard--but the burger was really small and looked like the kind you get at Elementary school lunch. People I know have raved about the burgers, but the shakes are their thing, I guess.
