I had to go to Time Warner on 23rd St. to swap out a bad remote which suprisingly took only 2 minutes! Pressing my luck, I made a beeline to the Shack and the line looked suprisingly manageable for 12:15 on a beatiful day. I usually avoid during lunch, but I waited for only 17 minutes.
Double Shack and Black and White shake were well worth it. It hit the spot. Patties were perfectly crisped on the edges. I didn't find it any saltier than some earlier posters had indicated.
I'm not sure I'll tempt fate at a prime hour again, but I'm glad I did. Back to salad tomorrow!
