I've read the below references to the shake shack, yes I know about the long lines now, and yes it was pretty good. I think the allure of the shake shack is the beautiful weather(not today obviously) but during late spring and summer that makes it such a great place, I've had better burgers at Paul's on 2nd ave., better dogs at Dash on rivington, better fries at mcdonalds and better shakes at hagaan daaz but it's the total package that works for this place. people watching and fresh air seems to be what will draw me to this place over the summer and really not much else.
do I rec this place to anyone? sure, i think everyone should at least try it once and then decide if it's something they want to continue trying, me personally, i'll probably go back maybe once more before the spring ends and maybe once during the summer.
just my 2 cents.
