The “concretes” sold at each location are unique to the location.
As we’ve extensively covered, the friendly folks at Shake Shack will be more than happy to whip up just about anything you can think of as long as it uses the ingredients on hand, from a grilled cheese with tomato sandwich to a “Chicago-style” burger.
If you happen to find yourself inside Delta’s Terminal 4 at New York’s JFK Airport before 11 a.m., you can snag yourself the only breakfast served by Shake Shack at their two locations there. Offerings include sausage, egg, and cheese; bacon, egg, and cheese; and egg and cheese — and all eggs are cage-free and from Niman Ranch.
Their special creation for the 2014 South Beach Wine and Food Festival, a cheeseburger topped with beer-marinated crispy shallots and Shack Sauce called the MeisterShack, won the Burger Bash, and we can tell you from experience that it was good.
Their burgers are made by taking a ball of fresh-ground beef and “masking” it down onto the flat-top, giving it that trademark crust. It’s not easy to pry them off of the griddle due to the fact that they’re stuck on there, so paint scrapers needed to be brought in to flip them. Works like a charm!
Once a month in New York, Philadelphia, and D.C., Shack Track and Field sponsors a group run where participants get free burgers and beers at the end of it. There’s also a table tennis league that’s open to the public in Coral Gables, Florida. Tournaments are held monthly, and the winner gets a $75 gift card.
Because the original location was so small, there was no space to hand-cut fries, so they were forced to use frozen crinkle-cut fries, which left some wanting. In response, last year they announced that all new locations would serve hand-cut fries, and existing locations would be retrofitted with a hand-cutting station. Unfortunately, that didn't go so well, and they switched back to the original fries shortly thereafter.
