Not my preferred destination, but, every now and then, when you need a burger, fries, and shake fix, this is the place to go.

The place was packed, had to wait and get a number or “pager”. Hard to find a seat to sit down. Had to share the “table” with others. A little overwhelmed by the “multiple” choices (we were at Shake Shack for the first time). However, enjoyed the burgers! Juicy and chewy.

Absolutely fantastic cement! I had never been to a shack before so I got the single size, now I'm wishing I got the double ... will probably go back tonight to get another one! The crunchstellation has chocolate toffee, and it is perfect!

Museum food did not appeal. This is a short walk, really worth it, and affordable. It gets crowded at lunch hour.

We loved this place! It has smiling workers, and an incredible mushroom burger that ooozes cheese and is loaded with taste. Our food came out quickly and was brought to us by Ronald who showed us a seat in the back, brought us water, and made sure we were happy with our order. Make sure Shake Shack is on your... More

No trip to NYC will be complete with a burger and cheese fries from Shake Shack. Still one of the better fast food burgers I have tried (and that includes In and Out).

After sitting in a hot Hop On Hop Off bus for an hour we decided to bag the Uptown tour of the Upper East Side. All we needed were some cool PG beverages, so, BAM! Welcome to Shake Shack. Shakes rule the roost here and on a warm NYC day this was a good retreat from the girly bus and... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
