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 Philadelphia Shake Shack include Center City Pretzel, Rittenhouse, and Liberty Shell concretes. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

  • ! !
  • Must try the Shack Burger and the Black & White shake if you're lucky enough to have one in your city.
  • reaaaaallly great cheese fries!
  • A friend recommended going for a Double. Good call... it was the perfect amount of burger to fill me up. If you like something a bit spicy, go with a SmokeShack. The food was worth the price.
  • Good but not great....in a city full of awesome burgers (and other food) this one is far from the top....2 thumbs up for the shakes and service!
  • Do the new, Philly "Shake & Bake!". Eat a Shackburger, then head to Hollywood Tan. Shake up your weekend!
  • Every burger is great, but the Shake Shack's famous "Shack Sauce" will make it the best burger you have ever had!
  • If you're eating inside, get your hot food and wait to get dessert. When you're ready, go to the C line for your cold items.
  • Burger is decent. Could be better. However these prices are dumb. 11 bucks. Hence this place is overrated (clap 5 time)
  • We like getting a cheeseburger and concrete. But if you've got a hunger, go with the double Shackburger.
  • The lines move fast. All the burgers is bangin! I got the shack stack. Amazing!!
  • OMG!!!! The portobello burger is the BOMB. So effin good:)
  • No frills, just a really good burger.
  • Lives up to the hype.
  • If you're ever on the east coast these burgers are the best! I recommend anything on the menu. The shakes taste very unique & the bread they use on the burgers are soft. Everything is fresh!
  • Very disappointed!
