    When not in the mood for the burger, opt for ShackMeister Dog™ topped with Shack cheddar & American cheese sauce and crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots along with a Peach Lemonade.

    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

    Cheese fries with homemade cheese sauce and thick "Concretes" are milk shakes with candy, hot fudge & other goodness mixed in. Their Mon-u-mint Concrete is a mint-chocolate crazy-good concoction.

    What isn't good here is a better question. I have yet to find something on the menu that isn't perfectly done and Very tasty. These guys know their stuff. I especially like the fries!

    Go beyond burgers! Created from dense frozen custard that is blended high speed, with your choice of toppings and mix-ins, the Concrete is a favorite at this famous burger joint during the summers. Read more

    Yummy burgers but don't expect big portions. The fries are not my fav (unless u like frozen crinkled fries) but simple is best here. Go with a (double) cheeseburger. The shakes are not special.

    The DC Shake Shack lines can often match those of New York, especially around lunch time, when the line of hungry office workers wraps around the block. My favorite burger: the Shack Stack. Read more

    Tip from Washingtonian: get the Shackburger. American cheese, Martin's potato rolls, green leaf lettuce, pickles, and mayonnaisey ShackSauce are all these just-greasy-enough burgers need

    AMAZING burgers! Make sure you get a double & grab a shake or concrete as well. Fries are just okay but the rest of it is well worth it - think east coast version of In N Out

    High quality burgers, however those who enjoy beefier less fine-grounded patties topped with sliced melted cheese instead of cheese goo should go elsewhere (like Black and Orange next door).

    I first went to Shake Shack in New York. The place is magical! The food is so high quality but none of that is lost in translation with secondary locations. I stand by the 'Shroom burger.

    You don't have to be a Meat Lover to eat at Shake Shack... Cheese fries, shroom burger, and a beer. Such a great meal. Also, try the chicken sausage, it's really good!

    The names says it all - It's all about the shakes. You can do a combination of flavors, but I recommend trying coffee, mixed with vanilla. It is quite magical.

    : 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

    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.

    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!

    The "Shack Stack" is overrated and too greasy. Just go with the classic cheese burger and dip those fries in your peanut butter shake. Awesome, right?

    The custard is... Simply fantastic. Try the plain vanilla with no toppings. Get ice if you get water because it comes out warm from the tap.

    Stick with a regular Shackburger. The mushroom and smokeshack are fine, but they can't match the simple perfection of the original.
