Shake Shack Upper West Side
New York NY 10024
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 West Side Shake Shack include Shacky Road, Upper West Side, and Natural History Crunch-Stellation 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.
Get the Shake Shack burger
For grab-and-go burgers, it's all about Shake Shack (I ask for my Shack burger rare, and usually, that's how it comes) and frozen custard (I'm a sucker for vanilla with their topping of the day)
Different location, same great burger. Good place to stop after checking out the Natural History Museum. As always, you've got to get the shack burger, a chocolate shake, and some cheese fries.
Go to Shake Shack and get a double stack with fries, best burger EVAR
Go to this shake shack because the line is MUCH MUCH faster, and your food is ready in a matter of minutes. Not the wait you would experience in madison square park.
Get the 'Shroom Burger. Attempt to keep your fingers clean.
Say hello to the best Burger in NYC
Great place to have dinner after visiting The American Museum of Natural History
Significantly less busy than the downtown location. I get the double cheeseburger and an Abita beer: dinner of champions.
Cheese fries is a must. Get extra napkins.
It's only a special during certain times, but absolutely try the peanut butter & bacon burger if it's available (ask the staff). A word of warning though, you'll need a lot of napkins for this one!
If getting cheese fries, get the cheese on the side and use as a dip!
Get the Shroom Burger. It's the junk foodiest portabello burger ever. But so fine.
weeknights there is no line
Even if the line is long the Shack Burger is worth the wait.
Completely worth the hype (and wait).
...check out their Special Menu Shacktoberfest running until Oct. 10th featuring sausages, Bavarian-style Concretes and a special Beer Stein. Na dann zum Wohl...
As a general rule, we advocate drinking wine everywhere ... But c'mon ... NOT here! Look for our tips at more wine-friendly restaurants ;-) agwine.com.
Have the shack stack. it is utterly amazing, you won't be disappointed.
Fair shake. Nuf said
I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!
Try a peanut butter and chocolate mixed shake. Just delicious.
