“Best burger in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Shack Burger was the best. Seating in the part with colleagues, a great burger and a beer is the life.

“A lot of calories and yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

It was a great hot dog and passable glass of wine. Though I liked my food, I would likely give it a pass on future visits. It is a franchise now, kinda like Mc Donalds. It liked a bit of ambiance.

“Lots of Hype”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

I heard the hype about these really great burgers, but honestly, it was good but not great. Maybe I should have tried a shake. It was very crowded but going thru the line to order and pay was fast. Pricing was ok for NYC.

“I think everything has already been written about this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

I think everything has already been written about this place, the best hamburgers i taste in my live, the bread is amazing, and the meat perfect.

The chickens, the best with the cheese I eat.

Only one problem I need to wait for more than 30min, for my order, the other side, You could ask for your order and then wait in the chair with your beeber, when the order is ready, they call you.

“Great for a burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

A tourist guide recommended this place. We went and loved it. It seems to be always busy and this is obviously a good sign. The burgers and fries are great.
