The Theater District location of Danny Meyer’s burger stand serves Shack standards, along with a menu of frozen concretes exclusive to this location (the “Great White Way” is a vanilla custard blended with marshmallow sauce and crispy crunchies). Carnivores of all sizes love the burgers made from fresh-ground sirloin and brisket and tucked inside a pillowy potato roll; vegetarians will be more than happy to sink their teeth into a satisfying portobello cap stuffed with cheese and onions. Though the single patties ($4.50) are kid-sized, a ten-spot will get Mom and Dad a Shackburger and a Budweiser.

Pretty good outlet of the haute-burger chain. Nice open windows, packed with seating, and the standard menu highlighting all the good choices (burgers, shakes, you know it, you love it). Just like most of them, there always seems to be a line, it can move fairly quickly if you're just (cold) pickup - if not, remember waiting is part of the experience (at least the first few times). Consistent quality, competent staff, pretty clean for midtown traffic, and a great place to watch people pass by.


Shake Shack will always have a place in my heart. It gets a lot of hype, but it does so for good reasons. When you first receive your order, you'll notice the presentation: the burgers have been neatly put together, and assembled perfectly in a way that they splay out of the convenient paper bag casing. Everything about the taste is spot-on: the buns are over-the-top soft, the beef is crispy and salty on the outside but tender on the inside, and there is a perfect amount of tomato, cheese and tomato to complement this. The crinkle cut chips are also the best you can get (crispy and golden outside, soft and fluffy inside), and if you're feeling really ambitious, wash it all down with a Chocolate shake. You won't be disappointed. EVER.
