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.

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.

Significantly less busy than the downtown location. I get the double cheeseburger and an Abita beer: dinner of champions.

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 during the week because the lines aren't long and you can actually get a seat! Really good, solid burgers, crisp fries and a decent beer on draft -- all for under $20 in the Upper West Side.

They have several locations in NYC and all are great. The burgers and shakes are what we go for! The Salted caramel hot choc is to die for. Be prepared to wait but it's all worth it.
