Shake Shack Downtown Brooklyn
Brooklyn NY 11201
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 Downtown Brooklyn Shake Shack include the Urban LumberShack, and Fudge-eddaboutit, Borough Precedent concretes. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

On 12/20/11, I joined the ribbon cutting ceremony for this new Shake Shack!
the single shack-burger has the perfect meat:bun ratio... the double is trouble!
The plywood's down, the griddles are fired up, and Shake Shack Brooklyn is just about ready to go..a huge dining room, plenty of windows, and new dishes-including one secret off-the-menu snack
Ommegang Rare Vos on tap!
This location features Brooklyn-based brands like Mast Brothers chocolate & Early Girl granola on desserts. Burgers & fries as tasty as all the other locations. YUM. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
Get the black & white milkshake with chocolate fudge & swirl in marshmallow!!!
Beware - overrun with strollers/kids on weekends.
D freaking best burger ever
You can't go wrong ordering yourself a Double Shack, and then splitting fries and an Arnold Palmer with a pretty girl.

Entrance is on the Willoughby side, exit only via Fulton St door

The Shack is in Brooklyn! Just in front of Borough Hall, tasty burgers and marvellous shakes. Also, tables and wall wooden panels are recycled from a former bowling hall in NY state :)
Line runs out the store. Bundle up!
Was not crazy about the burgers!
So, umm not feeling the burger. Too greasy. But the custards, floats milk shakes. Superb.
Great food ....wishing for WiFi and outdoor seating!!!
Get the red velvet frozen custard on Friday.
Great burgers..but shakes not as good.
best burger i ever had. in life.
Awesome staff here, everyone is super nice and helpful
The only Shake Shack in NYC without an obnoxiously long, slow line.
Why no outdoor seating? WHY?
There custards of the week are always great have you had a jelly donut!
Try the Maple Bacon Banan-za as a shake! It's amazing! Why does it come so rarely?!
Single burger patty is the way to go. Make sure to specify if you want lettuce, tomato, onions, or pickles, or else your burger will just be meat and cheese on a bun.
The shroom burger is fantastic!
