I can't tell you how many times I've come here, but it's a lot. Where else can you get great burgers, sandwiches, fries and shakes and eat the food on either their very small patio or take down to Crystal Cove State Beach (if it's crowded, which it usually is, go for take-out). The only bad part about the shake shack is that it is almost always very crowded and it does take a long time to get your food even if it's not crowded. Fortunately, they give you your milkshakes first, so it's all good!

This is a great little spot right off Pacific Coast Hwy and has been around along time.
We just starting stopping for the view and coffee. For the first time ordered a breakfast, cinnamon toast combo. Very good, generous and delicious.
Will be back for the view and to try something else. Not alot of parking though.
Thanks for keeping this place going, a wonderful spot for runners, walkers and
people driving by....

Great burgers and shakes with ample tables to accommodate the 15 or so parking spots. Best to eat here at off peak hours due to parking. Excellent early breakfast for early riser beachcombers.
No indoor seating!

we happened upon this on our way back from Newport Beach to Laguna Beach. It was. 7 pm and very busy with take away and sit in orders, lots of people watching the sunset.
You have to queue up to order and then take a number. the food arrived quickly, lovely fresh cheese burger and fries. very reasonable, can't beat it!!

Went here with my daughter and a couple of friends. We'd been on the beach for the afternoon, and climbed the stairs to the Shake Shack for a treat before we left. We only got shakes/malts, no food. The price was quite decent, the shakes were served up quickly, and tasted great! We all got different kinds, and they were all very good! The view was spectacular! It's a neat experience, and we left quite satisfied! It's hard to find parking there since it's such a small lot. As I said, we had been at the beach, so had parked across the highway and walked through the tunnel. Please go try this sweet little experience! You bet we'll go again if we make it back to that area!
