NYC Shake Shack to DC

This is exciting news for burger lovers. I just came back from NYC. Thr burger craze is alive and well. My Shake Shack lunch with juicy and delicious.

I can't believe that DC is the beneficiary of the first Danny Myer venture outside New York.

  1. I've never had the joy of experiencing Shake Shack, but this is obviously big news. Can someone explain it to me? I'm finding it hard to get excited about $8.75 milkshakes.

      I was wrong about DC being first venture outside NYC. It's still great news for us.

      The shakes are pricey but really good. They are more like a custard and must be eaten with a spoon. It's priced that way cause they can get away with it. DC isn't accustomed to the pricing of NYC though. They don't balk at $25.00 and up burgers so we'll see what happens.
      I don't really like their crinkle fries so that saves a few bucks right there.

        The website says shakes are $5.25, not $8.75.

          Ya I asked my brother, that use to live in NYC right near a Shake Shack, and he said the milk shakes are definitely not $8.75. That must have been a typo.

            Thank you for clarifying...I also looked on the web and assumed the Post had it wrong!

      2. The best burger in America is In N Out -- they are expanding to Dallas next year. Go...

          Ahem!!!!! Er .. . Uh . . . Scholars differ on this issue.

            In n Out is great for what it is- a reliably good fast food burger, available all over Cali, and made with locally sourced ingredients. It still tastes like a big wad of salt, fat, and sugar though. Shake Shack always struck me as In n Out done right. Good luck replicating that over dozens of stores the way In n Out has though.
