The Shake Shack

The Shake Shack is one of those New York things that you wish you didn't like doing (cause it's a lot of freaking work) but its too fun to pass up. On a day as beautiful as this, it's hard to resist being drawn into grassy tree-y, flowery Madison Square Park, where the Shake Shack is located. Chuck and I went for lunch today...we tried to go earlier, thinking we'd beat at least some of the lunch crowd, but we weren't too successful. There was a line at least forty people deep when we got on it. No worries. We talked as we inched our way up to the window. What's good about the Shake Shack is they have awesome burgers, fries, hot dogs, and of course, shakes. what's bad is that you have to wait at least forty minutes before you get up to the order window. We place our order, and then you have to wait again for it to be ready. Today that wait was 25 minutes, which I think is a bit crazy. As Chuck said, they probably sell about eight hundred hot dogs a day, so would it kill them to have a bunch grilling already? 40 minutes online + 25 minutes waiting for your hot dog, fries and shake = too long a wait for that kind of food. But the fries were pretty awesome, and Chuck and I did enjoy spending the entire lunch hour (and a half) outside. The Shake Shack. Try it if you dare!
