Shake Shack – New York

Ceiling.
Ceiling.

I feel like I’m living in the Jetson’s world. 

shake-shack-1648This is the first Shake Shack I’ve been to and it is located in the fanciest mall I’ve ever seen.  Blinding L.E.D. signs were flashing and the place is spotless. 

shake-shack-1647So modern looking.

shake-shack-1635Menu was pretty large and it took me a bit to figure out what to order.

shake-shack-1640Burger with bacon, lettuce, and tomato was the best fast food burger I’ve had.  Niman Ranch Smoked Bacon had delicious smoked flavor and just the right amount of saltiness. Just the right amount of crunch without being dried out. Beef patty was nicely seasoned and had good beefy flavor.  Nice flavor from the light char.  Lettuce and tomato was fresh and had good flavor.

shake-shack-1643Vanilla shake had rich vanilla flavor and thick.

shake-shack-1638Crinkle french fries were crunchy and I loved the fried potato flavor.  I really love crinkle cut fries as the ridges give extra surface area for the crunchy parts.

I had high hopes for the apple turnover as it looked like the Jack In The Box ones I was crazy about back in the late 70’s.  Sadly the pastry shell wasn’t crispy and crunchy and the apple filling didn’t have that delicious apple flavor I was addicted to.  I’m just gonna get a burger and fries next visit.  Really looking forward to when San Diego gets a Shake Shack.

    Wow! The burger and apple turnover photo’s look so good it’s making me hungry!
    My favorite is the ceiling picture, makes me feel like I’m in Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory!

    I heard they’re opening one in the UTC mall? I’ve heard such great things about this place. I was on a burger kick over weekend and couldn’t decide where to go for a big fat greasy burger. We ended up at Obriens (insert sad and happy emoji here). In n Out is still hard to beat IMO.

      I didn’t know. I’d go alot if they open one there. 🙂

      I’ve never been to Obrien’s. Should I go?

      In N Out is my fav fast food chain to get a burger in SD. I prefer Shake Shack burgers and fries though. I think the beef patty has better flavor and the bacon is awesome!
