Food is high quality, and worth the extra money. The staff is always friendly. The chicken shack, shack burger and shack stack are all great and filling. The salted caramel shake is amazing. Shake Shack is my favorite lunch spot, highly recommend if you want...More

Small portions. Expensive. Greasy. Slow. Waitstaff are nice people, but it would be much better if it were reincarnated as a Friendly's.

After finally eating at Shake Shack, I guess I can understand why everyone is obsessed with it. My cheeseburger and my black and white milkshake were both delicious! Plus the crinkled fries were amazing! Although it was not the best burger I've ever tasted, my...More

Was shopping in the area and offered my son the opportunity to stop here for lunch... big mistake! It took 55 minutes to receive our order. 20 minutes to place the order, then another 35 minutes waiting to have it made. Unacceptable. Looking at what...More
