Shake Shack

Row 1

Citi Field (126th St and Roosevelt Ave)
Flushing, NY 11368

Slowly, Danny Meyer's Shake Shack is changing the landscape of the burger world. It started in Madison Square Park in 2001, with a hot dog cart created by Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy's first art installation. Fans of the cart lined up for three summers until USHG won the bid to open a permanent park kiosk. Then the real fun (and lines) started. The "roadside burger joint" started serving incredibly juicy burgers on potato rolls and rich, thick, creamy custards with mix-ins (concretes), and the best Chicago-style hot dog outside the Windy City. It took until 2007 for the Shack to stay open through winter, but it's since become a New York institution — and spread beyond its borders, immediately ranking among those locales best burgers. Menu additions, mash-ups, and location-specific items have followed at newly launched Shacks in New York, Connecticut, Florida, D.C., Philadelphia, the Middle East, and now London. Location specific items at the CitiField Shake Shack include the Shortstop concrete and Frisky Fries. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

Not to be missed: French fries dipped in salted caramel, a.k.a. the stuff stoner dreams are made of.

Nothing goes better together than baseball and burgers. While the line is always long at this location, it's well worth it. We usually get the Shack Burger and a black and white milkshake.

Shack Burger, fries and a Shackmeister Ale. It's hard to do much better in the ballpark eats department. Helps to dull the pain of having to watch the Mets.

Agreed. Choc/vanilla shake is crack. Small but worth every calorie and penny

if it's super hot out, please get the black 'n' white aka chocolate milkshake. CREAMY COLD DELICIOUSNESS.

the one thing the Mets don't have to be embarrassed about. Go Yankees

You will easily wait 1 hour here to order. You have to special request pickles and onions. Crazy.

Not just shakes! Best burgers in the stadium.

Go in the late innings when the line is reasonable and have the custard. Excellent dessert! High calories, but totally worth it.
