Too hard to describe. The only advice I would have is don't share. Just the plain burger is sufficient. be Prepared to wait if after theater or during lunch and dinner hours as this is a very popular place. The burger, fries, and a shake...More

This place is always packed, but it's pretty efficient and wait times aren't as bad as they look. Definitely worth trying the burgers and shakes.

Hi, I don't think Shake & Shack admits bookings in advance. You will need to go to one of their locations and wait the queue (if there is one). But believe me, it is worth the wait :) Enjoy!
