Burger Comparison: Shake Shack (NYC) vs. Red Mill (Seattle)

OK, so this is a very specific and sorta random question, but if anyone can answer it, it would be CHers.

As previously noted in a few other posts, recently moved to Manhattan from Seattle. Haven't tried Shake Shack yet although it seems like a very popular spot. Very similar, in fact, to my favorite cheap/quick but way better than fast food burger place in Seattle: Red Mill Burgers.

Now, Shake Shack doesn't have as wide a selection as Red Mill (alas! I miss the Verde Burger...), nor does it have Red Mill's veritable mountain of bacon just sitting there on the grill. But their basic burger seems to share a lot of the same characteristics with Red Mill.

So, if you've been to both, is there any use in comparing? Should I just go and see for myself (probably)?
