    : This place is doing it right. They have five burgers, and they're all nearing best-in-town status. Their shakes make you instantly unable to process another McDonalds oil slick. Read more

    Meat runs from a signature black angus (single or double) in their secret "ShackSauce" (which reportedly contains everything from paprika to kosher dill pickles). Read more

    Desserts here are built around frozen custard. It’s blended into killer shakes and “concretes,” a blend of custard and traditional ice-cream toppings such as hot fudge and cookie dough.

    There’s only one on the menu you should order: the Double Shack Burger: two Pat LaFrieda beef patties, American cheese, lettuce, tomato & ShackSauce. It's a greasy, gooey cheesy ball of beefy delight. Read more

    You might have to wait in a long line, but this sufficiently juicy patty tucked into the lightly crisped bun is (fairly) fast food that pays a compliment to the genre. For dessert, pick the Monu-Mint. Read more

    When I had my 1st taste, it was love at 1st greasy bite. There’s no other burger that makes me crave it as much as a ShackBurger does. The beef. The bun. The cheese. The grease. It’s just so damn good Read more

    Try their signature Shack Burger. Always a line, but best in late afternoon before dinner. If you're not eating, there's a register just for shakes & custard.

    A $5 shake? You want to know what a $5 shake tastes like? It tastes about $3 too expensive.

    When ordering food and a custard, ask them to put a hold on the custard & save your receipt. You can pick up your custard after you eat so it's not all melted!
