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 Shake Shack Upper East Side Shake Shack include Coffee Bean Brownie, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunchcrete, and Black & White Cookie concretes. — 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.

This should not be on my way home. It's dangerous. Someone should do something before I hurt myself.

Quite possibly the worst seating situation in all the city... you're forced to either vulture over a table, or eat outside in 10 degree weather.

The location is what makes this Shake Shack great. If there's no dining room inside, get your food to-go and devour it on a bench in nearby Central Park.

Tried for a third time despite promises to myself. Despite all the hype, I still find ABSOLUTELY NO redeeming features whatsoever here. Don't waste your time!

This is a place where people "go out" for dinner that eat McDonalds regularly.

Smoke Shack Burger is one not to miss. Build your burger with bacon and check out their special chocolate shake.
