If you want to have something good, it requires lineup. We went over for dessert so the lineup for that was not that long. We had the half-size Chocolate truffle cookie dough concrete dessert. I can't imagine having the regular size to this. It's so rich and filling, but I would go back for it again. Yummers.

I hear lots of great reviews about this place on Food TV, Food Channel, Travel Network & other food related shows, so I was really really really extremely terribly excited to try this place out~!~!~! But, after I taken a bite of their burger, In-N-Out still has the best burger! Nothing can beat In-N-Out.
My gfs and I was really excited to try this place, so we got 2 burgers to share for the 4 of us since we wanted to eat as many places as possible. We got the single stack Shake Shack burger and the Shack Shroom burger. The Shake Shack burger tasted basically like In-N-Out burger except not as good. I do like their buns a lot though because it taste like those sweet Asian buns so there is a little bite of sweet and salty flavor going on there. The sauce inside the burger is basically thousand island and the cheese is basically melted cheddar cheese. If you're going to eat here, Shake Shake burger should be the only burger you get. Why? Well, the Shack Shroom burger we tried was just GROSS!
Shack Shroom burger is basically the same burger as their Shake Shack burger except they added a piece of OVER SALTED fried portobello mushroom. The mushroom is SO SALTY that it over powered the whole burger. We couldn't taste any flavor from the burger other than SALT~ Blah~ Worst yet, it cost twice as much as their Shake Shack burger!
If I live in NY, I would definitely miss In-N-Out dearly when I'm craving for a good juicy inexpensive 5 star burger!

A Madison Square Park burger joint staple. Be prepared to wait to indulge in one of these juicy classics. Go all out and order a milkshake and fries. You will burn off the calories by walking around this amazing city.

Nothing kills my taste buds like hype. And Shake Shack proves it.
Don't get me wrong, the burgers were really good, but not worthy of the hype -- for sure. I got the Shack burger with juicy, quality ground beef and an oily soft bun; every bite was enjoyable. But for a 45 minute wait and for a $7 burger, I'm expecting something phenomenally better than In-N-Out and the truth is, it's not.
The crinkle cut fries were overcooked. The vanilla shake tastes very comparable to In-N-Out's. I'm willing to bet that the vast majority of people can't tell the difference with a blind taste test of Shake Shack and In-N-Out's shakes.
Anyway, when you've had In-N-Out, you've had the best burger in America, dollar for dollar. I thought Shake Shack was going to change that, but truth is, it's just a slightly better In-N-Out with higher prices, no drive thru, and a painfully long wait.

Shake Shack is iconic to NYC but skip the line at Madison Square Park and head to the locations in the Upper East or Upper West Side! The Shack Burger and fries are fantastic and best enjoyed with a custard shake. The shake flavors change daily so check out the "custard calendar" on their website first.
