Aaaaand…it really wasn’t anything special. Seeing how it was my first time, I decided to go with the classic and got the ShackBurger with fries and a vanilla shake. I could tell the beef was very fresh, but honestly I could have gotten a better meal at In&Out and only wait 5-10 minutes. So disappointed.
That being said, I do understand that I did not get a full perspective of Shake Shack. Once I told my friends about my experience, I was told I should have tried the Shack Stack, a cheeseburger with fried portabello mushrooms. People told me the Shack Stack was one of the best burgers they’ve ever had. I also know that they recently had a special burger with peanut butter and bacon. On top of that, they also have a bunch of “frozen custard” desserts I didn’t get a chance to try. I guess I just missed out.
I will give Shake Shack another chance, but only one more. I’m willing to wait in that line again to give it another shot with the special burgers. If I’m still disappointed, I will never go back.
