While Shake Shack has become an international burger powerhouse, let's not forget it all started in NYC right in Madison Square Park. The fast-food chain is still a cult favorite for loyal New Yorkers looking for the best cheap burgers in town or a next-level milkshake. Hell, we're even fans of their Chicago-style hot dogs. There's so much to choose from, so we went ahead and ranked their entire menu to make your next visit a little easier.

After waxing poetic about the custard, it's no surpirse we're fans of their concretes, which take scoops of frozen custard and blends it with toppings like pie or chocolate chunks into a thick creation that'll end your binge on a sweet note.

The Shack Stack creates a monster hybrid of the ShackBurger and the 'Shroom Burger, which means it's all of the wonder of their classic burger plus a deep fried portobello mushroom filled with cheese. The result is a perfect blend of textures all packed with umami richness.

Shake Shack started as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park, so it's no surprise that their Chicago-style dogs can stand up to their burgers. They've got all the topping with relish, onion, cucumber, pickle, tomato, pickled pepper, celery salt and mustard.

12. Veggie Burger

A black bean burger laced with ground beets makes for a sweet patty topped with sharp cheese and the typical fixings if you're feeling like getting in your veggies and being healthyish.
