yes the line is utterly long. but you line up anyway because you know the end result is worth it. The double shack burger with bacon is heaven on earth. I think people who say it's not worth are more upset because they had to wait. If they only had to wait five minutes I guaran-damn-tee they would have a different opinion. The fries, however, are just okay, not great. But who cares when you have a great burger and great shakes! Oh, and to the people who complain about lack of seating: it's a damn park, there are seats and benches EVERYWHERE - good grief!

It's worth it, trust me. The people below who rate this poorly and call the burgers "forgettable" and "average" are cranky snobs who will never find happiness with their food. The line is long, but go there expecting to spend an hour or two in the park on a nice day. It's so worth it! I haven't tried anything but the double shack burger because it's too good to pass up every time. Get a shake or the Shackmeister Ale, and enjoy!

Are these burgers perfect? Possibly. The cozy potatoe bun finish certainly doesn't hurt. The crinkle cut fries with kosher salt don't either. And the chocolate shake, in my opinion gives respect to the very name of the establishment. The line moves fast and the park is a nice place to chillax, even in winter (heat lamps). I like simple burger joints and this place has great burgers and keeps it simple enough.

This weeble CANNOT believe she was talked into getting a shake in her fancy shoes. I mean, it was cold, and I did not have the option to remove my shoes, and they are tall! I liked my food just fine. The shake WAS yummy. But for real: why would you wait in that line? I had a bite of a burger - it was delicious, but I know a few places that rival with no wait like that. Do you too?

OH MY GOODNESS!! YUM! Fries are perfect. Not soggy, not too salty, firm enough. Usually fries of this circumference are soggy, but not these!! But forget about the best fries ever, I GOT THE PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM BURGER WITH A HAMBURGER ON THE BOTTOM. It's called the "Stack" and it's a burger with a portobello mushroom, that's been stuffed with cheese, breaded and deep fried, on top. so its like 2 "burgers" in one w/ lettuce and tomato. Ok, I've been to 5 star restaurants, and this is by far, the most delicious, naughty thing ive ever eaten. I am in extacy right now. WOW. and for 12 bucks, not a bad deal either. Watch out for the line though, LONNNGGG.

Even on an off night this place offers the best burger in NY! Not a huge fan of the dogs or fries. Be prepared they skrew up the toppings sometimes. Still the best!

Ok, so we waited on line for more than a few minutes to order some great fries that turned out to be mediocre fries. The hot dog was good but Sabrett is better and the burger was forgettable. $27 for the fare was not too bad but not cheap. Oh and seating is impossible. I am not going back.
