We visited on Sunday evening, so the place was not overly crowded but had fair number of people. We had 8 people in the party. We waited about 15 minutes for the food. I have mixed feeling about the service. The greeter was very friendly and engaging. The cashier was not really attentive and a bit blunt. She didn't even... More

Just like the name says, their shakes are excellent. Their hamburgers are yummy with some non traditional toppings that make them original. Carry in or out, good service, not as fast as fast food, but the food is much better and worth the wait.

First time trying the iconic burger place. We really enjoyed it. The bacon was killer, the the cheddar sauce delish and shake was great. Very good but pretty expensive

We stopped into the Shake Shack for lunch on a Friday afternoon with my family. The food was good, but $10 for a buger without fries is quite pricey. Not a place I would consider "a cheap place for lunch" as google recommended. I also believe I saw 2 illegal deals between employees and "guests" ( one at a table... More

Rush hour at DuPont circle on Friday night. The lines are long and the party-goers are hungry. We ordered burgers and shakes. I paid about $14 for what I'd pay less than 10 anywhere else. The shake was small, the burger was just patties, nothing else. I had to get back in line to get toppings. Come on guys!

We had very good burgers and delicious cheese fries. Topped off with interesting flavored shakes - peanut butter was the best. Crowded restaurant but managed to find a seat and enjoy the AC on a very hot day in DC.

The burgers are very good and our son became rather fond of the chicken sandwich. While they're very good at what they do, you'll want to pass if you're looking for wider fare.

Burgers and shakes were fantastic - burgers had plenty of flavour while the shakes were not too sweet. Only thing is I would avoid the fries. They weren't so well done (not crispy).

Had a Chicago style hot dog - which I enjoyed; the splitting of the hot dog was great for maximum surface area. The ice cream - I had a Washington Monu-Mint concrete - was fine, although I didn't think it was as good as I'd been led to believe. It was fine - it was a hot night so that... More

Liked the place and the drinks, didn't like the fries though, it tasted like those semi-cooked potato fries. It was fun anyhow :)
