“Loved it!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We ate here twice on our visit to New York, we loved it that much! The smoke shake burgers were delicious!

First time we went we never had to wait in a long queue which was great, at around 12.30pm, when we thought it would be busy. The second time at 9pm we had to wait for around 40mins, as people have mentioned, but it was well worth the wait again.

One of the best burger places we've ate at!

“Only had a cone due to crazy long wait”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I thought if I went at 2 pm the lunch crowd would be mostly gone. After waiting for 40 mins and still being really far from the front of the line, I decided to take the express line where you can only order "ice cream" cones and drinks (but not milkshakes). So I get a cone, it was soft serve. Soft serve is not ice cream to me. It's was very much in the sub par category. I'm so bummed. I hope I get to try this place again and see if the food is worth the hype, but the cones are DEFINITELY not worth it.

“Outstanding!!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We went to the Shake Shack on a weekday afternoon during lunch hour. Line was considerable. Took about 15 minutes to get to the window and order. There was a person offering menus to people in line, which is a good idea. I am not one to wait for food for long periods of time, but wanted to try out their burgers. We all felt the wait was worth it! Delicious. Had the Shackburger with fries & one shake. Everything was great. The fries are crinkle cut and done to perfection. Not limp or soggy. The burgers were better than most around. The peanut butter shake was give a thumbs up. One of the better burger and fries combos you can get. There is some limited seating in front of the stand. Most tables were taken when we were there so we had ours to go. We certainly go back again, regardless of the line.

“Not Worth the Wait”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

This Burger is your average burger. There is nothing impressive about it. Your better off getting a signature burger from Applebees.
The quality of the beef is thin and flavorless.
The fries are blan.
This Place is over prices for nothing.
