“You can't visit NY & not go to Shake Shack!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

The burgers & fries are tasty, but the Peanut Butter Shake is awesome!!!!!! Unless you have nut allergies, you should not miss this treat. It is sooooooo good. I have never seen this flavour anywhere else on my travels so far.
Tip: Try to come before the lunch rush, as the queue can be extremely long. Secure a table before you order. Keep your eyes open for cute little squirrels that inhabit the park. Have fun! :)

“Nice place to get burger and fresh air”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This place is a small burger joint in a park with limited outdoor seating. We timed our visit well and avoided a long wait but the wait is worth it. Seating fills up fast and empty seats are snatched up fast, so be quick. 2 burgers, 2 shakes and an order of cheese fries was about $25 but worth it.

“Great place in NYC to have a winter hot dog!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

I was looking to have a good NYC hotdog and while just wondering around the city we stumbled across this outdoors eatery by pure chance on a frosty winters day. We arrived just before the lunch time rush but judging by the lines its a very popular place and I certainly would.

I had a hot dog with what I think was crispy onions chip but all of it was delicious and great value, next time in in New York ill definitely go back and try some of the other food on the menu that looked great!

The outside seating has heating and there was also a busker playing a piano in the nearby park so the atmosphere was greatly improved!

“This has to be the best hamburger in NYC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I am not a huge fan of fast food or hamburgers, but I decided to try Shake Shack because my apartment was near Madison Square and I always saw a lot of people lining up there. Try to avoid lunch time because it's when it gets very very packed. I went there by 4pm (for a snack) and I only had to wait 10 minutes. The hamburger was delicious! So moist and so tasty, I had never tried something like that until that moment. Fries are also very good. Try the ones with cheddar topping.
