We arrived to this busy location about 10:30 for an 11:00 AM opening on July 5th, there were 10 others waiting to get in when we arrived. When the opened the doors a few minutes early the line was immediately to the door. My wife had the Shack Burger, fries and a coke, I had the SmokeShack (Bacon & Cherry Peppers really make it) krinkle fries and a special 4th of July Blueberry Lemonade. Bill was about $24 for two so moderately priced for a quick lunch but it was oh so good. We both decided that they were easily two of the best burgers we had had in a long while, the krinkle cut fries were nice and crispy and the blueberry lemonade was quite a treat. Obviously this is a well loved place, the first two guys through the line ordered 50 burgers and 25 corn dogs and fries and enjoyed a cold beer while they waited, within 15 minutes all of the tables were taken. There was a kind gentleman walking around helping clear tables, overall the restaurant was a good value for great food!

This place is always busy because the burgers are good, and the crinkle fries are great. However,the shakes are the best part! My husband had the coffee shake and loved it! You can't go wrong with the Shake Shack for a fairly priced, fast food treat!

Good burgers, good fries, good sundaes! The place is clean and orderly despite the crowd. However, I wish it serves coffee... The service is quick despite the number of customers in line.

We were staying next door at the Conrad and decided to try a burger (since we were there anyways). We split a shack burger (it was just a predinner snack). We both found it a little bit greasy (I had a bit of gristle) but still tasty. Overall not bad for a fastfood burger. We did not try any of the shakes or concretes but they did look good!

We went to the Murray Street branch after visiting the Irish Hunger Memorial and the line was short. It can be a problem finding food in the USA that doesn't come in huge portions. These were quality above quantity although you can go as big as you like.
Looking forward to them opening a branch in London.
