Who knew one place could offer so many kinds of burgers under $6? The patties look like they're made fresh. The fries are $3.09 but well worth it. I ordered Penthouse Sweet as my dessert but didn't care for it. It was just too much...More

We decided to come here on a Friday night for dinner. There was a long line but it moved quickly. The food was as good as always. They do not have the Peanut Butter Milkshake at this location.

I like the cheese fries the most. As for the burgers - a little overrated. On more than one occasion my bun was sort of soggy because the patty was greasy. The coffee and donut custard that I had was amazing.

You bet! Our 'Shroom Burger is a great veggie alternative to our meat burgers. It's a crisp-fried portobello mushroom stuffed with cheddar cheese and topped with tomatoes, lettuce and ShackSauce!

There may be a garage for a nearby hotel, but this location is on Michigan Ave. So, parking may be hard to come by. I would suggest Googling downtown parking.
