Shake Shack Chestnut Hill

When Shake Shack in Chestnut Hill first opened in early 2013, there was a line around the block to get in and there was no way I would wait in line for a fast food burger. Fast forward to now and there is no line, so it was time to see what all the fuzz was about.

They are located in the new section of the Street complex with some patio seating but not for today, it's in the twenties currently.

I went for the single Shack Burger ($5.29). "Cheeseburger with tomato, lettuce and ShackSauce." It was delivered in a little paper bag and looked good. I appreciate that the bun wasn't sliced all the way through, makes it easier to keep the stuff in place, The bun was nice as was the veggies but the patty was really thin but cooked nicely even if it was well done. I must admit that between the nicely melted cheese and the sauce, the taste of the burger was non-existent. I think it was seasoned nicely since I could taste some salt and pepper. Considering that I paid just about the same for a 1/2 Lbs burger yesterday, this was not a good value for the money. It was nicely presented.

I also went for the fries ($2.99) and it was Crinkle Cut Idaho Fries that was cooked really well with a nice light crust on the outside and a fluffy inside but they were just crinkly fries and did not impress. They tasted potatoey and was OK.

The inside is nice with handmade tables from Brooklyn and nice big windows.

There was enough staff around to handle the non-existent line and they even started to deliver the food to the tables. The staff was very friendly and the place was kept immaculately clean.
