“Good fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

What a cue for a burger, was it worth it. Mostly yes but nothing spectacular. Good and fresh , worth the Que.. Not really.

“Lived up to expectation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Just went here tonight to get a quick takeaway bite to eat. Jumped on the back of a line of about 30 people however they had one staff member outside handing menus out to the wait line which is a great idea. The line went quick enough (5-10 mins), service was good (so incredibly sick of the terrible, rude service here in America that seems to be the norm in retail and restaurants), wait time for food was about 5-10 mins also and the food was amazing. I got the shack burger and strawberry shake. Burger could possibly have been a bit bigger. Good value for money, I will definitely be back!

“A great place for burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Heard a lot about this place so we tried it. The cheeseburger was great, hot dogs really tasty. Service was spot on and price was reasonable. Give it a try!

“Worth the wait !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Don't let the long line up outside discourage you. The line moves fast and the food is well worth the wait. Current fundraising promo on for their shakes, donate $2 and you'll get a coupon for a free shake (~$5 value) . You can use the coupon within 7 days. Awesome shake ! Only con was the cheese fries , expected real cheddar /mozzarella melted over the fries instead it comes with a little cup of melted cheese that resembles cheese whiz . Not worth the extra money. Burgers were great ! Seating is very limited. If there's more than one in your party, send someone to scout a seat while you place the order. As soon as you see someone leaving , grab their spot as it don't stay vacant for very long.

“Good Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great place to eat something quick for cheap compared to most other places. I'm not a big fan of fast food but the smokeshack burger was delicious as it had it's own unique taste, and unlike most burger places they don't stack it so high with stuff that you can't eat it the way your supposed to eat a burger.
