    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

    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.

    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 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.

    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).
  • Washingtonian Magazine

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
  • K S.
    K StarkJuly 17, 2011
    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!

    : 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

    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

    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 "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?

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