After waiting I think over 90 mins (which included what seemed like 30 mins even after ordering), perhaps my apatite expired or perhaps it was just not that great, but I've had a much better hamburger. There wasn't that much flavour in the meat. I was however pleased that the price wasn't that bad, especially compared to that of The Burger Joint on 57th, which I would recommend over this place any day...

Shack Burger: Fresh ingredients, good bun & good lettuce; add peppers, pickles and onions: HEAVEN...well worth the wait. Take a good book for the line...

Yeah, it's a pretty good burger. Is it worth the wait? No. Save yourself from the inevitable disappointment an hour-long wait engenders, and try to go when it is 20 min or less. Then again, just about anything would taste good when you've been waiting that long. The portions are on the small side, too. The Shack Sauce is decent - but 0.75 for a blob of sauce when they only change 0.50 for cheese? I suppose I should be happy they don't change 1.50 for a slice of cheddar the way some other places do.

Where else in NYC can you sit outside in a park and eat great food at a reasonable price? The Shroom Burger and cheese fries are delicious. Highly recommended.

OK, I waited until I went on two different occasions before passing judgment. All I can say is that the burgers I had were absolutely tasteless! They were over-cooked and had less flavor than a McD Quarter pounder. I thought the burgers were supposed to be cooked medium if you don't specify. The first time I had it (without specifying how I wanted it done), it was dry and over-cooked. The second time I specified medium, and it was exactly the same: dry and over-cooked. I suppose I should try medium-rare now, but I have no desire to go back there. It is absolutely mystifying how these can be considered great burgers. And please don't insult my intelligence by saying my expectations were too high; and that the long wait clouded my judgment. Nonsense. They are mediocre, at best.

Decent burger, huge line, basically a waste of time. You don't need to buy their food to sit in Madison Square Park - so that doesn't count for much in my book. Many better burgers just blocks away. I guess it is more a destination than a meal...

This place is hyped as having excellent custard (ice cream). Not by us. We thought it was quite tasteless. Nothing like Custard Beach which, to my knowledge, is no longer in business. The "custard" tasted no different than most soft serve ice cream and wasn't even good at that. We did not try the food as the line was way too long for that; we went to the "express line" for the "custard".
