Great burger!!!! Even better fries.

The burger and fries were both great. A little pricey but that's expected for NYC. I've had a lot of burgers but this is hands down.... One of the best. Had to wait in line for 45 minutes. The bacon makes the burger.

Heard a lot about this place and seen the queues outside constantly throughout my holiday. Managed to catch one early at the grand central outlet. Have to say I was disappointed greasy bun and for what it was expensive had better in different places throughout my break.

My boyfriend and I were shattered from a days exploring so only ventured out of the hotel at ten for food. Shake shack was so cool, with pretty lights, good tunes and a really chilled out atmosphere. The food was excellent and shakes are so yummy. Was a really great all round experience! Please come to the UK shake shack!

Very nice food, but i paid $17.63 for a burger, fries & small shake. I was dissappointed with the Quantity of what i recieved for the amount i paid. The service was great and very helpful, however, it was a small burger with a small amount of fries & what looks like a shake that should be $3.00 was $5.25.... More

Thankfully opening back up soon, the Shake Shack Burger is the best burger you can get. The crinkle cut fries are excellent as well. Suck it all down with a great shake!

This food is the best food to have when you're travelling and just want something yummy but quick and cheap. The burgers and fries are amazing. Not to mention the shakes and the concretes. It is so delicious I want to return to New York, or anywhere that has a Shake Shack, ASAP.

Best burger ever (and by far). Fries are super good, Burger meat is top (tasty and fat) and lemonade is homemade (at least it looks like). The queue is generally big but it's moving quite fast.

I was curious to see if Shake Shack was as good as everybody always says. I was not disappointed! My friend and I walked to this location on a scalding hot day. The shakes were so refreshing. We also got burgers and cheese fries. They were also excellent. I loved how humble this location was. It's just a little stand... More

I had a Shackburger and fries at the Shake Shack outside the NYNY Hotel/Casino....the burger was good quality...the burger bun looked/tasted like a potato bun, which added to the quality...the fries were crisp on the outside and soft on the inside....the price was a tad on the high side...overall the experience was better than a typical fast food place and...

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
