Fodor's Expert Review Shake Shack

$ Flatiron District American Fodor's Choice

Although there are other locations of Danny Meyer's patties 'n' shakes joint around town (including Brooklyn), Madison Square Park is where it all began; there's no indoor seating—just outdoor lines, though you can check the "Shack Cam" from their website to gauge your wait. Fresh Angus beef burgers are ground daily, and for a burger on the go, they're decidedly tasty. For a few more bucks you can order a double, a stack, or a vegetarian 'Shroom Burger—a melty, Muenster-and-cheddar-stuffed fried portobello. The menu also offers "beef and bird" (chicken) hot dogs, French fries, delicious frozen custard desserts, and—of course—shakes.
