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.
  • The Upper East Side location of our favorite New York burger chain.
  • This should not be on my way home. It's dangerous. Someone should do something before I hurt myself.
  • 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.
  • Finally! A Shake Shack with a completely non-smoking outdoor seating area! Thank you, SS!!!
  • 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!
  • If your done eating, get up. Limited seating.
  • Double Shack Burger, fries an a black and white shake. You can't go wrong.
  • Shack burger, fries, and the Fair Trade shake = a good time. The location is great since you can eat indoors or outside and the staff is quick and efficient
  • Smoke Shack Burger is one not to miss. Build your burger with bacon and check out their special chocolate shake.
  • By far the best burger in NY!!!!
  • Be aggressive with getting a table.
  • Shroom Burger it's the best vegetarian burger in the whole world. Try it!
  • Oh my god! Every other veggi burger i tried befor was nothing comparing to Shake Shack Shroom Burger. Absolute yaam!! Also grilled cheese with everything is awesome!!
  • Coldplay, John Mayer, and Jack Johnson playlist going? Yes please!
  • Shake stack!
  • quick n delicious! their burger is cooked to perfection. love it gotta have shake shack burger when u r in the city! - *must
  • Two shack burgers is better value than one double shack burger.
  • Nicest fast food cheeseburger in town. Tasty shakes (I had strawberry) and delicious salted caramel frozen custard. Definitely recommended!
  • Best burgers I have ever had, nothing beats it. There's always a line up but it usually goes pretty fast. Don't forget to bring you dog since they have a doggy menu!
