    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.

    They really roll out the welcome wagon for newbies! Let them know if it is your first time here - the friendly staff will make you feel special. :-)

    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

    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

    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!

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I've been going to this location for a very long time , the staff are very friendly and very fast.Double shack burger and cheese fries is the perfect order.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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!

    i know it's a NY import, but it's honestly one of the best burgers in DC. i go simple – cheeseburger with shack sauce – and am never disappointed! all that flavor!

    : 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

    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

    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.

    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

    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?
  • DC Dining Adventures
    The Chick'n Shack fried chicken sandwich is nothing short of amazing!

    Best burgers and cheese fries anywhere. The custards and the hot chocolate are also pretty good.

    The same delicious food that you'll find in NY, just without the long line. As always, get your Burger, Fries, and Custard!

    Non GMO buns. Inn N Out and Shake Shack are my top burger places. First time at shack shack and will be coming back.

    The new Smoke Stack (cheeseburger w/ shack sauce, bacon & cherry peppers) is greasy, caloric paradise. SO WORTH IT.

    Great fries and stack shack + the fact that u need to add pepper and salt to make it eatable 😕

    'Shroom burger is exceptional. Shakes are great, tho' hard to choose between standard and creative flavors.

    Totally lives up to the hype, plus this location has beer - some on tap, like their ShackMeister Ale!

    Solid fast food burgers (nothing spectacular, but hits the spot when you're looking for something greasy), and the custard is great.

    Order a side of their Shack Sauce for your fries. They might charge you a bit extra but its totally worth it.

    Get here early -- be in line when they open at 11am or be prepared to stand in a very long line closer to the noon lunch hour.

    Stick with a regular Shackburger. The mushroom and smokeshack are fine, but they can't match the simple perfection of the original.
  • DC Dining Adventures
    Must try the 'Fair Shake', not only is it delicious, the coffee beans mixed in help prevent you from a food coma!

    Great food. The shroom burger is really tasty. But the service here is so disappointing. Danny Meyer would be heartbroken if he saw how unfriendly and slow the staff can be.

    Shack stack: Juicest, yummiest patty, cheese explosion and crisp fried portobello mushroom. How could you go wrong?

    The Shack Stack. Absolutely worth burning the roof of my mouth every time.

    Must get a peanut butter shake if visiting. Fries are sharable size.

    Get the cheese sauce for your fries. Beers are Brooklyn and only $5.50.
