It was our first visit to New York and friends recommended this joint. So we were lucky to find one located opposite our hotel on 8th Ave. It was a relatively big place but it was packed most of the day. The food was the main attraction, especially the jalapenos one! Eat it with cheesy fries on the side, what... More

There is no exaggeration here. This is the best burger I have ever had! And that burger is the shack double. I had to queue for at least 30 minutes at the MSP location in order to get my fix, and every time, the burger was perfect (3 times). The espresso shake is just as legendary also. I have also...

Awesome food in every shake shack, they are consistent in each branch for filling tasty fast food. Although, if you dont like queuing you may not be so pleased. Its part of the shack experience. Vanilla shakes and shroom burgers are the best.

Really delicious juicy burgers. Nice service and quite romantic setting at night in the centre of Madison Square. It is the most inexpensive way to dine in NY so prepare for long lines waiting. Try a concrere shake also but do not read the calories on the menu!

I have never been - But was so excited I would be working by the one in Washington square park. A few months ago it closed. They have been working on the "shack" but I do not know if it will reopen. NOTE- I had to put a rating to post this.

We visited the location at 366 Columbus Ave. It was our first experience in a Shake Shack. Hamburgers were delicious, best fries ever and delicious hot chocolate. The only downside is there is not enough sitting places. Other than that we were very pleased.
