We stopped at the shack after reading all the reviews. This is definitely a no frills eatery with the spotlight all on the food! First time in, just go through the small entrance and find a seat. Most tables are outside with a few tables...More

I chose the spinach/artichoke burger and it was amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Laid back atmosphere...which is exactly what i was looking for. Highly recommend if you're tired of the tourist prices for less than average food...this is the place for you.

Great burgers. Casual dining. They now have in and out door seating. Think its called the burger shack now though. Got 2 drinks and 2 half pound burgers for $25. Great local burger joint.
