Plan to stand in line, have someone in the party grab a table. It is a great burger and awesome shake. A great place to go if you are at the Natural History Museum with the family.

The food is great here, the people are nice but the wait time for a seat is ridiculous. I don't want to blame this place for not having the capacity to hold the amount of demand it attracts but, last night was a nightmare. There really isn't any method to the madness. A gigantic free for all for getting seats. If you're claustrophobic, avoid like the plague.

Burgers are small but tasty. French fries are great and the custard is delicious. However, mine was pretty melted by the time I got a seat. It's in a great location from Central Park and the American Museum of Natural History so I'm sure that is why the lines are out the door and wrapped around the corner.

I was surprised by the quality of the burgers and fries, as the place reminded me of a fancy Burger King. It was pretty crowded, and you need to be in the game before you order, because everything is fast here.

Shake Shack is a perfect place for a quick bite, and the food is so much better than what is served at the traditional junk food stores.

We visited the Shake Shack in the financial district after hearing some excellent reviews. The queue was long and daunting. Unless you know the shake shack and have been there before you do not have much time in which to decide what to order.

We had the Smokehouse burger and shared some fries. The burger was amazing, so delicious and fresh. The bill for two of us, for 2 burgers, 1 fries and 2 diet cokes was about $26 a bit pricey. Having said that, it was a great burger.

Located right across from Central Park, had a great atmosphere. Was a little crowded at lunch time had to wait a little for seating, but that's ok. You're in NYC space is limited, right? Burgers were fresh and delicious, had the smoke stack burger, had a little kick to it very good, kids gobbled up the hot dogs and French fries. If your in NYC should stop by for a great burger.
