Shake Shack (Upper West Side)

The Shake Shack on the Upper West Side is truly a great addition to the area. Not only is this location perfectly located next to Central Park. But, lets face it, who doesn't like a double Shack burger, fries and a concrete. The frozen custard concrete special flavors change every day, but you can always get your own blend like I did. My concrete on this day was a vanilla custard with chocolate toffee chunks. I've got to go on Monday when the flavor of the day is coffee with doughnuts mixed-in (mmm donuts..Homer). The service is better than your average fast food chain. Items are made to order and taste fresh every time. That is why you are given a beeper after you order, which conveniently gives you time to find a table where to eat, which can be hard to come by. Shake Shack is a guilty pleasure which most people wont admit to having very often but, trust me.......THEY DO!
