“The best hamburger on NYC! Lové it”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

I went to NYC for a week end, with my five best friends and to surprise another friend living in the city. This is when I tasted for the first time a burger at Shake Schak and i still can't Forget. It was sooooo délicious and I can't wait for my next visit to NYC to have one.

“Average burger - don't believe the hype”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

My partner and I had heard such great things about the burgers here that we didn't even mind the crazy line and the jam packed (must wait) seating area. However, once the burgers, fries and shakes were in our possession - our disapointment reigned supreme and the whole experience was lacking. Cold fries, greasy (as in grease oozing down the side of your face) extremely salty burgers and average shakes is what you get at Shake Shack. Really nothing to write home about. If you want an excellent burger - go to the Burger Joint. We won't be back.

“You can't visit NY & not go to Shake Shack!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

The burgers & fries are tasty, but the Peanut Butter Shake is awesome!!!!!! Unless you have nut allergies, you should not miss this treat. It is sooooooo good. I have never seen this flavour anywhere else on my travels so far.
Tip: Try to come before the lunch rush, as the queue can be extremely long. Secure a table before you order. Keep your eyes open for cute little squirrels that inhabit the park. Have fun! :)

“Nice place to get burger and fresh air”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

This place is a small burger joint in a park with limited outdoor seating. We timed our visit well and avoided a long wait but the wait is worth it. Seating fills up fast and empty seats are snatched up fast, so be quick. 2 burgers, 2 shakes and an order of cheese fries was about $25 but worth it.
