Shake Shack (NYC)

Of course, I couldn't go to NYC without a visit to New York. Since we stayed near Times Square, we visited the theatre district location. We visited on a Sunday, so the line was pretty long out the door. Luckily, we were given a menu while waiting in line.
The line moved pretty quickly in the end, but finding a seat was even more of a challenge!
There's a line for cold food only, so if you want a milkshake you barely have to wait at all!
On the side, we ordered cheese fries ($3.65) which were topped with Shack cheddar and American cheese sauce. I normally don't like crinkle cut fries, but these were addictively delicious with that cheese sauce! We also had a malted black and white shake ($5 & +0.50 to make it malted)- hand-spun vanilla ice cream with fudge sauce swirled in. The shake was thick, creamy, and super satisfying with all that greasy food we were eating! I was tempted to order another one to go after the meal!
Jeremy had a SmokeShack ($6.25), which is a cheeseburger topped with Niman Ranch all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce. He enjoyed the burger overall, but wasn't a fan of the cherry peppers. I opted for a Shack Stack ($8.60)- cheeseburger with a crisp-fried portobello mushroom filled with melted muenster and cheddar cheeses, topped with lettuce tomato and ShackSauce. In one word, my burger was awesome! The cheese-filled deep-fried portobello mushroom was absolutely heavenly in my burger!
As I bit into the burger, the cheese oozed out gloriously. And that ShackSauce, whatever it is, was oh so tasty! I will be dreaming about this burger for months!
These are my friends' order- a simple ShackBurger ($4.55) and the SmokeShack. They aren't really fans of burgers in general but came along at my insistence! Thanks for accompanying me!
There is a reason that Shake Shack is so popular, and this experience has definitely raised the bar for my future burger expectations! I'd come back in a heart beat next time I'm in NYC.
