Bad Root Beer Float at Shake Shack

E Eto | Jul 25, 2006 04:41 PM

Since I've been effected by the blackouts in Queens, I've been spending more time in Manhattan, and I found myself in Madison Square Park, hankering for my first root beer float from Shake Shack, which I've raved about in the past. I've pretty much given up on the burgers, but I love being able to "cut" to the front of the line to order my float. But something was amiss. The first clue was that my float felt lukewarm. And after the I scooped up the suds, I noticed the cup was only filled up halfway. And maybe about a teaspoon of ice cream in evidence, rendering the spoon useless. Seems like they poured a warm root beer bottle over a small scoop of ice cream and handed it over to me. I remember the first few root beer floats I've had at Shake Shack in the past, and they were pretty generous with the ice cream (the ratio of ice cream to root beer is key). If this is what they're dishing out now, I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.
