It's ok but with just a little bit, they can be good or really good (if they work on some points): 1. The Fries are really good. Please don't change this! 2. The burgers are good, but for me they use too much oil to...More

These burgers are fantastic - better than In-N-Out I think. The fries are good - not the best, not better than MACDONS fresh and hot - but good. The shakes (I had a strawberry) was very good - much better than MACDONS. Overall, very good...More

I love burgers and got the recommendation to go to Shake Shake. The burger were ok but really not exceptional. The fries instead were very good compared to other burger companies.

This is a fun place with great burgers and shakes, at reasonable prices. We arrived at an off time so we found a table right away. We shared a burger, fries and shake. All very good. Staff is very helpful and pleasant. Enjoy.

Ate way too much because it was so tasty! Had the double bacon cheeseburger and a chocolate shake. The food was worth the wait but a bit too expensive. I think I spent over $20 on a burger and shake. But glad I experienced The...More

Love their portobello mushroom with their sauce. I also have had their other burgers and have never been dissatisfied. Service is efficient and we have never waited too long. Their shakes are big and great!
