New Yorkers have obsessed over Shake Shack for years and now the West Coast is finally finding out what all the hype is about.
Shake Shack began as a hot dog cart in Manhattan and evolved into a restaurant with multiple locations in New York, as well as locations in Chicago, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania. Its first restaurant west of Chicago is now open, fittingly, at New York ? New York.
Shake Shack serves up Angus burgers made from hormone and antibiotic-free beef, all-beef hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer and wine.
Try the traditional Shack Burger with lettuce, tomato and Shack Sauce. There's even a vegetarian 'Shroom Burger.
Our favorite hot dog is the Shack-ago Dog with relish, onion, cucumber, pickle, tomato, sport pepper, celery salt and mustard.
Don't even think about leaving Shake Shack without trying one of their frozen custard shakes. They come in vanilla, chocolate, caramel, peanut butter and more flavors. You can also get floats, cups and cones full of the creamy goodness.
Shake Shack also has concretes ( dense frozen custard) with Vegas-appropriate names like the Jackpot and All Shook Up, which is made from vanilla custard and local bakery Gimme Some Sugar's banana peanut butter cheesecake and chocolate toffee.
Tip: Not eating a full meal and just ordering cold items? Look for the C-Line and skip the regular line.
