Sashayed in for a date with a fella and felt like a rock star in my candy red 5" stiletto heels and tight jeans. Saw the long line and decided I had to be a sport since I was with someone to impress. Waited so long in line my feet matched the color of my shoes. Was in a foul mood when I reached the counter, but took comfort in knowing I was in THE place to get a burger. Well, my man turned out to be a rotten date (no, I don't find your whistling cute), the people in line annoyed me (I heard a college girl brag she was smart to wear her Converse Sneakers! AND cast a glance my way), and the burger? Honey, it was fine but the beer was better after that wait. Next date is in a place with reservations and chairs. Girlfriend AIN'T at Citifield. I'll keep the stilettos and skip the college brats and cheap dates.

I went to Shake Shack for the first time last Monday. I have since been 3 times. I get the same thing, shack burger and fries. I can't put the burger down. I think there's liquid crack in the secret sauce. The fries have been hit is miss. One time hot and seasoned perfectly and another time cold and blank. No big deal. At 4.75 for that burger I think it's the best in the city and the perfect size.

I finally got a chance to go to shake shack, what a disappointment! The line moved quickly, I was surprised by that, but when I got my food back to my office, I found the french fries to be very good, I believe they had celery salt on them, nice touch, but the burger, what I really went for, was horrible, the meat was verry pink, mushy to point, didnt taste any special sauce, not verygood, I was glad I didnt spend a lot of time on line, however my co worker got the Hot Dog and she loved it. I was wishing I had got that. Maybe I'll try that, not in any rush.

I arrived at 11:15 soon after they opened. By the time I ordered my burger and got a seat, the line began. Oh, did I mention how yummy the Shack burger was! I savored every bite and loved the specail sauce that came on it. I skipped the fries, as they were your ordinary crinkle cut version. Enjoyed the park for some time after and was glad I ordered when I did as the line got ridiculous. If you can time it right, this burger is so worth it!

The Shake Shack burger is really good. One of the reasons it's so good is that they don't really make a round patty in the traditional sense. It's more like a piece of chopped meat broken off from a larger pile and tossed on the grill. Because of this style, the edges are rough and tend to get crispy and grizzled while the main part stays soft and juicy. It's really quite a treat when put together with their sauce. In fact, it's quite addicting. But I'm sorry, nothing, and I mean NOTHING is worth waiting an hour in line for. The only time I wait in line for an hour is at the DMV and that is because I have to. Shakes are really good too! Recommended.

Every NYU student I met my freshman year couldn't stop praising this place, so I thought I had to go. I checked out the menu online before going. Thoroughly disappointed with the place. The Shack Burger supposedly comes with a special "Shack Sauce". It turned out to be mayo. The burger was tiny - the patty can't have weighed more than 2.5 ounces. It felt undercooked and the lack of "Shack Sauce" gave it a rather bland flavor. I had to smother the patty with mustard and ketchup to be able to force myself to eat it (I never put condiments on my burgers; a good one shouldn't need any). The line wasn't very bad when I went, but the burger is nothing worth writing home about. That people actually wait hours in line to get it shocks and bemuses me. Final thoughts: Never Again.

We love Shake Shack to bits... it's so drool-worthy! The concrete, the burgers... But be prepared to wait in line for a very, very long time!! I wish they could dish out the goods in half the time!!
