Favourites at Shake Shack?

  • a

Hi all,
I will visiting from Montreal in April and am really curious about the shake shack. Fellow chowhounders have suggested it and I was wondering what were your favourite orders. I tried to take a look at the menu online but it isn't working for some reason. So curious to see the hits and the misses.
Thanks,
Ani

  1. Double Shack Burger.
    Fries.
    Black and white shake.
    Water.

    That's my usual order. I don't really like the hot dogs as much.

      I'd have to agree for the most part. The fries aren't that great and I'd rather have a root beer float but yes to the double shack burger, water (salty burgers) and up until this year, I'd agree with the hot dogs.

      My problem with the hot dogs of seasons past, is that they were boiled. Now that they have a hot dog griddle, I think giving the dogs a second chance will reap rewards.

      One thing about the burgers...it's just like the story of Goldilocks. The single shack burger isn't enough, the triple shack burger is too much but the double shack burger is juuuust right.

    2. Cheeseburger, cheese fries, and either a sundae or a concrete jungle.

      1. For the burger, I usually go for a double plain--I do like the shack sauce and cheese, but I feel like the meat is so damn good that I don't want to sully the flavor at all. For drinks, I go for a pint of Brooklyn or Longboard Lager, or the Concrete Jungle if I can find someone to share.

          exactly what kanger said re: burger. plus/minus lemonade (nicely sour, not too sweet), fries, or brooklyn lager.

        2. Double Shack Burger
          Cheese Fries
          Beer

          1. Check out www.shakeshacknyc.com (or is it shakeshackny.com?) for opening date (next week). My favorite trio (of which I only order two at a time) is the shack burger, shroom burger and Chicago dog. I pass on the fries--not my favorite.
