Shake Shack is quickly expanding and I am not going to complain about it. Several weeks ago, they opened a new location on 36th and Broadway and I see that as a blessing as their location near Times Square is always crowded. Although this one might be too soon. Their burgers are fantastic and, with others like Five Guys, they set the expectation for a great burger. No more grey tasteless meat: what the crowd wants is a tasty burger made that not only looks, but tastes like meat. We went there on a Saturday before 12pm and I was glad we were early as this place started to get packed as time passed.
What I realized as we were waiting to order is that they also propose a menu for dogs. It is either to get some publicity or really because they care about our 4 legged friends.
Anyway, I was not there for that, but for a good juicy burger and of course a milkshake, my favorite pairing. After we ordered, they gave us a buzzer and probably 5 to 7 minutes later, our order was ready.
For Jodi, the 'Shroom Burger, a crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with melted muenster and cheddar cheeses, topped with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce.
For me, a double SmokeShack, a cheeseburger topped with all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce. That was an amazing burger, smokey with a nice texture added by the fatty bacon, and with lots of cheese. And that patty...Deliciously charred. A spectacular burger for sure.
The wavy fries were crispy and good, not as good as Mc Donald's, but quite good.
And of course, a delicious vanilla milkshake perfectly made, not too thick, but thick enough.
So, yes, I am a fan of Shake Shack and their delicious burgers and I am glad they are opening more locations so there are more seats for all of us!
Enjoy (I did)!
