“Incredible Hamburgers, Great Prices near Central Park”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a great restaurant because it is not touristy, the locals eat here as well. The hamburgers are all grass fed beef and taste incredible, the best I have ever had at a restaurant. The menu even had offerings for dogs! The prices are very reasonable, a great value. We used this as our starting point for central park. Ate here, and then crossed the street to enter the park.

“Burger kingdom”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

I was told by local to go to this place. 12 min queue to order and another 10 for delivery. The time was worth it. Probably the best burgers I have ever had. Great ice cream also.

“LONG line moved shockingly fast!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

2nd best burgers I've had (1st being In'n'Out). Crinkle cut fries and seriously gourmet-quality milkshakes. I'm not a fan of hamburger as a meat (I generally HATE it), but this stuff was downright tasty.

With a beer and wine menu and staff that seems genuinely pleased to be there and eager to serve you, this is a chain that deserves to expand far beyond the reaches of NYC!

My one complaint: not nearly enough seating or restrooms.

“Great food and ice cream!!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great ice cream and shakes. Try the "concrete"!! Burgers and chips yummy. Just be sure to try to avoid busy times and maybe you'll find a seat! Eating in the crush is the only downside.

“So Good!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Shake Shack was really one of the best burgers I've ever had and it was cheap! The burger was nice and juicy with a lot of flavor. The fries was crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and had a side of cheese sauce to dip in. The shakes were deliciously creamy and had a buttery note which accentuated the sweetness. It really is worth a visit (and many return ones)!
