S is for...

Shake Shack

In a 7 day period, I went to 3 different Shake Shacks. Not sure if I should be proud or embarassed...but I think I'll go with proud. :) For full disclosure though, I only ate at one of them, and split 1 milkshake at the other two. But each visit was equally delicious.

What we ordered...
@ the new Battery Park location:
(Suggestion: walk over to the park along the river to eat. Much nicer setting than the outdoor area of the restaurant itself.)
- 'Shroom burger - Crisp-fried portobello filled with melted muenster
and cheddar cheese, topped with lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce
- Crinkle-cut fries
- ShackBurger - American cheese, lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce

@ Citifield
- Strawberry milkshake delivered to our sweet seats!


@ Saratoga Race Course
- Vanilla milkshake
- ShackBurger - American cheese, lettuce, tomato and ShackSauce

It gets an A for:
- FRIED CHEESE (with a little sliver of mushroom) on a bun. Nuff said.
- ShackSauce
- It earns the right to have "shake" in its name - the shakes are so rich and delicious.

It gets an F for:
- The wait at the normal locations. I realize that's part of its appeal, but is it really worth it an hour of your time or more?!
