Ciao Bella Now Uses Fillers in their Ice Cream! – Diasppointed to see that many (all? - we had their chocolate and triple espresso) of their ice creams now use
- Guar Gum
- Locust Bean Gum
all at the same time. Yikes! We loved the ice cram they make, but now won't touch it. Had some lately and wondered why it tasted funny. Then we read the list of ingredients. Looks like the expansion of their business drove a once great brand to focus more on profits than on the quality that got them to the top.
Overrated – I wanted to see what the long lines were about at this UWS burger joint. The place draws a cross section of the community, but the people watching was better than the food. I had a shackburger, which cost a dollar more than the usual burger, but was just a burger with cheez whiz and mayo on it. The meat was nothing special. Fries were average, and I paid almost $3 for a fancy root beer, which was no better than typical root beer. This is a cut above the fast food chains, but they do not offer a superior burger experience. I don't plan to be back.
Shackalicious – No matter which location you frequent, shake shack never disappoints. Their location on the upper west side probably has the shortest lines of the branches, which isn't saying much, but its worth the wait. Went here Sunday and the line was out the door, but the line moves quickly. Split a shack burger, chicago dog, fries and custard with cider donuts and caramel mixed in with one of my friends. It was decadence at its finest. They make such a great burger there. Their hot dog is messy but has all the works and tons of flavor. And their custard is the perfect ending to the meal.
Yum – Amazing burgers and the custards are fantastic. Mint Chocolate chip was spectacular.
Addictive, Awesome, Great.....beware... – great burgers, and everything here is GREAT!
FUN easy summer night vibe. But they are so addictive!
Top 3 Burger Spots in NYC – I've been to Shake Shack about 6 times since it opened. The burgers and the BUNS are so good its addictive. The cheese fries are absolutely amazing as well. Its a salty, chemically kind of cheese but its incredible. I can't say enough wonderful things about Shake Shack.
Yummy! – First of all, I didn't have to wait at all... We went around 8pm on a Wednesday night for dinner and there was no line. Had the original Shack Burger and it was super yummy... very juicy and flavorful meat... perfect portion too. We also had a bottle of the Shack Shiraz which was a great compliment to the burger. Only drawback was that the cheese on the fries tasted like cheese whiz... plain fries would have been better. I also got to tast the peppermint custard... wow... that was so smooth, creamy, and lightly refreshing. ^^
Best burgers in NYC – The burgers, shakes and fries here are phenomenal and are a must have! Thank you for bringing SS to the upper west! By far, the BEST burger in NYC and always worth the wait!!!
Bringing The SS Goodness To The UWS – Does not disappoint. We were a little worried that it wouldn't live up to the expectations the original SS created, but burgers are just as good and the line isn't as painfully long (at least not yet...a little worried about once the line does get consistently long as we'll be waiting halfway down 77th Street). The space is great, and the employees are incredibly nice and accommodating. I was shocked to see negative reviews bashing the fact that employees actually explained menu options to customers and were "slow". Wow, some people have been abused by crappy NYC wait staff for too long! If you compare SS to McDonalds & other fast food joints, go to McDonalds! That's one fewer person I have to wait behind to get to my ridiculously delicious double cheeseburger and black and white shake! Thank you Shake Shack for opening up in our 'hood. I will be attempting to practice restraint and not go more than once a week!
