Stumbled across this place, looked at other reveiws and thought I would give it a try. I was not disappointed and it is like going back to the 60s as another reviewer has stated. To be honest it makes it all the more enjoyable.

Everything is cooked to order and is worth the wait!

We found out about this place by using our Trip Advisor City Guide looking for a good burger. The place is a modest looking, middle of the block lower level restaurant that one would easily miss. The place has “throw back” stuff like RC Cola… no Coke!! Milkshakes!! Cool interior and the staff was very nice. Great tasting burgers! Not expensive. They also DELIVER!!!

Ducked into Black Shack on one of the hottest days in the summer and found it delightfully cool on many levels! First off, it's a few steps below street level and painted black inside ... gives the place a cool, clubby atmosphere.

The decor and the menu are intentional throwbacks to the late 50s/early 60s -- authentic, but with a little tongue in cheek attitude that makes you a part of the fun they are having.

Placed our order for two burgers, fries, onion rings, two sodas ... and the counter girl added with a smile ..."and two shots of tequila??" ... fun and sassy!

Stepped over to the soda station and found RC COLA and DIET RITE COLA! When is the last time you have seen them served anywhere?? Throwback time! This was clearly getting better by the minute.

Then came our order and the lunch was complete! GREAT BURGERS, great shoestring fries, and a 100% win on flavor and freshness. This place is definitely worth checking out. It will become a new favorite for sure!

Great burgers, excellent friendly service with goods recommendations and best of all a great range of cold local beers. There is a restaurant look to this place and the burgers are cooked to order, but you only pay the same as fast food outlets so great value.
Try the turkey burgers - moist and tasty, and definitely give the Cajun sweet potato fries a go!
