“Best in NYC?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Shake shack could potentially be the best burger in NYC. The aged meat cooked perfectly is absolutely delicious. I am gluten free and if you say it is an allergy, then they will change gloves when preparing your bun-free burger. Do note that the fries are not gluten free though.

“The Shack Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The shack burger is so delicious. The bun is soft which complements the burger itself, giving it a nice flavor. The burger is cooked perfectly every time I visit. The vanilla milk shake is awesome!

“Busy and No Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This place was packed! Burgers and fries were served fresh and hot! Great burger!! Really!! We also tried their frozen custard concrete. They are rather small, so order the large.
Suggestion: Get your order to go, then leave the restaurant and turn left. Go two short blocks to the water front and eat your meal with a tremendous view! Enjoy!
