Shake Shack was born in NYC, Madison Square Park to be exact, in 2004. This modern-day “roadside” burger stand is known for using 100% all-natural Angus beef and offers griddled-crisp flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer, wine and, of course hand-made shakes.

The menu features an array of delicious item, including locally-famous fish and chips, beefy burgers, salads, sandwiches and more. Most nights feature live music, and breakfast is served on weekends. Belly up to the bar and get an ice-cold beer or, better yet, a handcrafted cocktail. Come for dinner, stay for the live music.
