My kids REALLY love a great burger, and they are so tired of Shake shack & Five Guys. I heard about Station Eats. Has anyone been there? Is it really good for burgers? ( veggie burger too. - don't really like Shake Shacks fried mushroom burger, not too healthy. ) Please let me know.

    Burgers good, shakes are terrible--made with soft-serve ice cream, not hand dipped! Sacrilege! Shake Shack def better.

      It's fine. Nothing to write home about imho. New Canaan is teeny tiny...a few seats inside, a few more outside. No better or worse than Shake Shack (maybe cheaper, however, which is a plus) or Five Guys. Personally, I think some other places are better (but I'm not allowed to name one). Quirky ordering system that I suppose they think gives them character but isn't so convenient when you're juggling hungry kids who have never been there before and who don't want to change the way they like to order...

        Never been but if you go to webe108.com and click their restaurant of the week tab (as of today 5/15/12) you can get a $50 gift certificate for $25. (I say your title and realized that I just saw a coupon for them today).

          New Canaan location is TINY. And a bit pricy, but otherwise a good alternative. How are the prices in Stamford? I walk by it all the time but have yet to stop or peek in.
