Chicago Eats // Shake Shack

Thursday, November 6, 2014

I've decided that I am going to chronicle all of the new places that I eat in Chicago. Eating is quite seriously my #1 hobby. 

Chicago got a Shake Shack this week! Huzzah times a million. I can officially join the trendy social quarter that eats at Shake Shack on the regular. Because it just opened this week there was a line situation. My friend Linzi was gracious enough to take care of the bulk of the wait. I showed up at the last minute and just climbed into the front of the line with her. Forgive me. With this bad boy only 5 blocks from work I might have a serious waist line issue. 

Here's the Sitch
Place: Shake Shack
Order: Shack Burger, Salted Carme"L" Concrete, Root Beer, Crinkle Fries. Pure Delicious Gluttony.
Price: $16.47 - a little steep in my opinion, but then again I did order basically everything on the menu.
Atmosphere: Surprisingly relaxing. Quaint outdoor patio feel with the charming hanging lights. They also have the famous Chicago windows that completely open during the warmer months. Can't wait for that!
With: Linzi South (you might make me take this picture down...)
Rating: Two Thumbs up.

Come visit me and we can eat here?


  1. We ate at the Shack as often as possible when we were in Manhattan. It was blocks from the temple. Heaven X 2.
