The Madness that is Shake Shack - Is it an Expensive Fast Food Burger? A Cheaper Gourmet Burger? (vs. Golden State) - Review and Pics


Shake Shack - Weho

What can I say? We loved them.

Dble ShackBurger w/Bacon & the SmokeShack

There must have been something in the description (humane?) that induced me to order bacon on mine.

Nice crispy faux Ore-Idas

I guess it helps when you wait until the line causing hype dies down. My old-school burger loving husband thinks it’s one of the best burgers around.

Ya’ll were doing the burger comparisons on this thread. So I’ll add my two cents. It’s a mistake to compare these to gourmet burgers with Silverton blends and what-have-yous. Remember “Shack” is in the name. And that’s what they are, a deliciously elevated burger shack burger.

Not pictured - yummy Coffee Shake and that crazy Rainbow Connection Concrete. :yum:

Happy :hamburger: Eating!


I had a Wendy’s Frosty recently. It’s cheap and compares well to the concrete.


Top Round on La Brea does a really good Concrete. Probably not cheap.


One thing. I’m with @Chowseeker1999 - not loving potato buns.

Are you high?


Not yet.


I like Freddy’s over Shake Shack.


Sounds good, but Westlake Village is a bit of a haul.


I hope you dipped some fries into that Frosty!!
