“Must eat here when in NYC!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Everytime we visit NYC we make it a point to eat at Shake Shack at least once. The burgers and shakes are absolutely amazing! The prices are fair for the quality of the food. Give this place a try, I know you wont regret it.

“Megadelicious burgers...”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

I'll write about this Shake Shack, the first one we've been, but, more or less, the same could be written for any other of their restaurants.

After visiting the Natural History Musuem, we were so glad to find, right on its back, this restaurant we've been so much told of. Shake Shack did not exist last time we've been in the US!

Even if, as we later discover is the rule for Shake Shack, finding a seat is hard, this specific place has the advantage to be located a few minutes away from Central Park, but even if you don't want to go there, some shady benches are just 2 steps away.

As for food, tasting burgers, chips etc. makes you feel the difference - and it will make you come back!

Recommended for burgers lovers!

“Burger Heaven”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

The burgers and shakes are fantastic here. Our daughter in law had told how good this restaurant was and she definitely was right. We found this location near the Museum of Natural History on a freezing night in November. It was so worth it.. They really know how to make a hot, delicious burger with fresh ingredients. The shakes (with malt) are thick and decadent. This location had plenty of room (2 stories) and we didn't wait long for our food.

“First Shake Shack experience”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

My first ever shake shack experience was at this location and I was looking forward to it for a long time! I had been recommended this location as it was quieter than many of the others, and while there was a line and full dining room on the main level, the lower level had plenty of empty seats. I did go around 11:30am to beat the rush and there were mostly young kids there. Foodwise, exceeded any expectations. Such a great burger and an awesome peanut butter shake. The cheese fries were also delicious. I tried another location and it was good but way too busy to enjoy it as much. When I return I will definitely be back to this location!' Thanks shake shack!
