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 Westbury Shake Shack include Westberry, Malt Whitman, and Old Country Rocky Road concretes. — Arthur Bovino, 11/20/2012

Whatever you are in the mood for. Want a hot dog. They rock. Want a burger. Even better. Ice cream drinks. They even got your dog covered.

This place was packed! Expect a line, a wait & a buzzer. The burgers are a bit greasy, but in a good way, the fries are like Nathans (which are great), & the custards are tasty and unique. Worth It!

The Shroom Burger is delicious! The fries are amazing too. Employees are super friendly...if I don't feel like cooking this is the 1st place I think go!

The burgers and shakes are as good as advertised. Some say the food is a bit salty but still great

Line can obviously be a deterrent, but the Shack burger is well worth it. The cheese fries are good, too.

The past couple of times I've been there there was no line, but that's really rare. Definitely try the 'Shroom burger. It's out of this world. They have the best fries too!

Nice burger but the cheese fries so bad (not a proper melted cheese and the fries were kind of old)
