Shake Shack Dupont Circle
Washington DC 20036
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 Dupont Circle Shake Shack include Presidential Sweet, Washington Monu-Mint, and Majority Whip concretes. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

: This place is doing it right. They have five burgers, and they're all nearing best-in-town status. Their shakes make you instantly unable to process another McDonalds oil slick.
Meat runs from a signature black angus (single or double) in their secret "ShackSauce" (which reportedly contains everything from paprika to kosher dill pickles).
Desserts here are built around frozen custard. It’s blended into killer shakes and “concretes,” a blend of custard and traditional ice-cream toppings such as hot fudge and cookie dough.
There’s only one on the menu you should order: the Double Shack Burger: two Pat LaFrieda beef patties, American cheese, lettuce, tomato & ShackSauce. It's a greasy, gooey cheesy ball of beefy delight.
When I had my 1st taste, it was love at 1st greasy bite. There’s no other burger that makes me crave it as much as a ShackBurger does. The beef. The bun. The cheese. The grease. It’s just so damn good
Must try the 'Fair Shake', not only is it delicious, the coffee beans mixed in help prevent you from a food coma!
The same delicious food that you'll find in NY, just without the long line. As always, get your Burger, Fries, and Custard!
Cut the long line, there is a register just for shakes, custard, drinks.
ShackBurger, add pickles, cheese fries and a vanilla shake, SO GOOD!
Try their signature Shack Burger. Always a line, but best in late afternoon before dinner. If you're not eating, there's a register just for shakes & custard.
Love the 'Shroom Burger!
Shake it up baby.
No line at around 3pm or 4pm.... Try their Shake Stack Burger. It's so worth it.
Good, definitely not NY-esque. I will stay in SE and go to 'Good Stuff'...
Score an ice cream or dog treat for your pup!
shack burger ftw. waaaaaaay better than 5 guys. Though I'm a SoCal girl, so still an in-n-out loyalist.
Try the Black&White!
A $5 shake? You want to know what a $5 shake tastes like? It tastes about $3 too expensive.
That was a damn tasty burger, and some damn tasty fries...I'll bet the shakes are good too!
ShackBurger and black and white shake. Skip the fries, not worth it.
Burgers are amazing!
