Was told this was THE place to eat in NYC....totally overrated and overpriced....$15 for a hamburger that was in the class of Wendy's, a strawberry shake with no taste and really? you call those fries??? Did it for the experience but will not recommend to any of my Canadian friends to try...go to 5 Napkin Burger... better value and taste!

Go to Maddison park (by the flat iron) and join the long que for the Shake Shack, all freshly made and tastes delicious! Atmosphere in the park is lovely and was a great experience - high recommend a visit - must be good all the locals go there!

The shackburgers are delicious, but the fries (crinkle cut) are just okay. The lemonade quality also varies - the first time it was excellent but the second time it was very watery. It is also best to do take-out as seating is quite limited (for the crowds that are waiting).

The Shake Shack is a not to be missed place in NYC. They now have several locations to make finding them even easier. The dinning room is small, be prepared to wait for a table or just get it to go. The burgers are moist, the beef tastes fresh as well as the veggies. The fries are good but the custard and concretes are prefect. I hate to even compare this burger to In-n-Out on the West Coast, it is that good, possibly better.

Ok, hands down best little hamburger joint ever. The burger is moist and comes in an egg yellow bun that is super tasty. The fries are the crinkle kind and are a great compliment. I'm still drooling for this little place.
