Very good burgers and shakes and the line moves quickly. Know that if the weather is bad you're left to deal with it. But so perfect on a nice day. A shack worth visiting again!

ok, everybody is talking about this burger place and being curious I wanted to have a look. There was a long queue but it was fast moving. I waited 20 min to order and 10 min to get my burger which was good but not outstanding. Excellent the beer from local brewery (Brooklyn). But to be honest I like more... More

We came here guided by the opinions of other travelers and was a good decision. From all the burgers that we ate in New York this was the best. If you like the lemonade the one that is served here deserve a try.

Lot of friends told me to try the hamburger in this Shake Shack place if I'd be in NY and I've done it last may. Amazing!!! The best hamburger I've ever had. We all appreciate the hamburger itself, the french fires and the lemonade too. If you are in NY just go to Shake Shake with a little patience... you'll... More

We knew we'd have to queue but didn't mind as this told us that the burgers would be worth the wait....and they were absolutely spectacular. These are definitely the best burgers we have ever had, lovely tender juicy meat and washed down with a lovely vanilla shake (and don't forget the tasty fries also). All eaten in an absolutely beautiful... More

Ok so this is fast food, but to hell with the stereotype, I'm eating it anyway! I'm healthy 49 weeks a year, I'm going nuts. The burgers are great, the shakeshack sauce is delicious and the fries are crinkle cut for your pleasure. But the clincher (for me anyway) is the insane milkshake. An absolute beaut. Whatever time you get... More

It's a humid day in downtown New York. You want to try the best of American food but don't want the ones that you have already tried in the UK. The Shake Shack is something different. It's setting really allows you to appreciate the atmosphere of New York by stepping back from it for a moment. The queue for hot... More

If you want a bio, cheap and excellent burger, this is the place to go! Finally burgers (fast food) and low food ( home made wich fresh and nearly grown ingredients) are mixed in this super greedy place. Don't be afraid by the line, it's sign for quality and taste!
