Shake Shack is nothing new and has been around for a few years now, but believe it or not I only just had it for the first time this summer. Every time I would go into the city, the line would be out the door and I never felt strongly enough about trying it out to wait in that kind of line. But recently a Shake Shack opened up near me in good ol’ Jersey and the line at the counter is a normal one so I finally tried it out!
I got a single Shack Burger — you can get a double. The Shack Burger is a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce. The burger was delicious and moist and the bun was soft. It was a really nice size patty so you’re not overwhelmed by too much meat or disappointed by too little.
I also got a shake because I had always heard that their shakes were good. Everything I heard was correct because the shake was really good! I got vanilla, my favorite flavor, which some say is boring but I beg to differ. I don’t see vanilla as boring, but classic! So my vanilla shake was yummy – not too sweet or too thick.
I’m glad I finally tried out Shake Shack and I would definitely go back. Sure it’s not the original New York City location, but at least here I don’t have to wait outside the door to order!
