NEW YORK CITY | There’s not much to be said about Shake Shack that hasn’t already been said. It was began as a single food cart inside Madison Square Park in 2004, and today can be found in over 160 locations across the world. Restaurateur Danny Meyer, who founded Shake Shack did so with a simple philosophy – to create a modern “roadside” burger stand serving up delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more that are affordable without skimping on quality ingredients.
The signature Shake Shack Burger is still the burger that most go for, and for good reason. It contains a 100% Angus beef Pat LaFrieda sirloin and brisket patty with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce, in a soft buttered bun. The patties are quite thin, so we recommend going for a double. Crispy crinkle cut fries are a must, and if you’re up for it go for the cheese fries which are topped with cheddar and oozing American cheese sauce.
If you’re still hungry you can’t go past a concrete. It’s dense frozen custard blended at high speed with mix-ins like chocolate truffle cookie dough, walnuts and amarena cherries, fudge sauce, caramelized cocoa nibs, bananas, and dougnuts. The varieties differ from store to store, and you can choose your own combination of mix-ins if you want.
Shake Shack has outlets all over New York City these days and finding one isn’t hard. The only difficulty is accounting for the fact that you’ll want to eat more than you can fit in to your stomach!
