Should I be thrilled?

 

And I don't even know how to spell it. That's Shake SHACK.

I walked past the 8th Avenue, Manhattan location the other night about 10.30pm.  There must have been a line of 100-150 people.  You can walk past at almost any hour of the day and there will be  a line. Maybe a few people, maybe a few hundred people.

I think I need to test the Philly one next week.

 

Next week!

If you expect it to be great, you'll be disappointed.

 

If you expect a fast-food burger, you'll be happy with it.

 

It's hard to imagine being "thrilled".

seriously there are better burgers in Austin.  and Austin already has custard stands (not like NYC where custard was a novelty when the Shake Shack opened)

I get a chocolate covered custard cone at Sandy's Frozen Custard (which has been open longer than I've been in Austin....so that's more than 36 years) about once a year. Usually it's in July or August and I sit at one of the picnic tables in the back, near the dumpsters, and eat it as fast as I can. When it's 100 degrees outside, you gotta eat FAST. It drips all over my clothes. Then I wipe my sticky hands on my shirt (their napkins are ridiculously useless) and go home and throw my clothes in the wash.

 

I just found this review on Yelp!

Their vanilla custard dipped in chocolate is amazing. I come here often after swimming or some outdoor event which I feel is the perfect outdoor dessert place. There's nothing better than eating on the curbside of Sandy's and watching the ice cream drizzle down your hands.

Their old-fashioned hamburgers are delicious as well: big, fat, and juicy.

I'm not a burger aficionado. I'll probably never go to Shake Shack. Support local!

I think every frozen custard place is required to have useless napkins.
