Shake Shack in New York City

This is for the Shake Shack at East 23rd (Madison Square Park).

First of all, the mushroom burger is amazing. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the fries. Perhaps the fact that we were sitting in 20 degree weather outside while eating (but then why did the burger taste so awesome in spite of this??) colored my views a bit, but I was not a huge fan of these fries. This could also be due to the fact that I'm not into thick zig-zaggedy fries (although the thick fries at Farmer Brown still managed to knock my socks off. See review below).

On the plus side they are super cheap. I think I need to give these a second chance, but for now, they are a 5. I'm just not that convinced.


Price: $2.75
Portion Size: Medium
Texture: Crispy on outside, a bit mealy on inside

Greasiness Level: 3 out of 5 (a bit greasy)
Seasoning: Underseasoned
Fried in: Soybean oil. Take note: they recycle cooking oil and turn it into bio-diesel. Hi, earth friendly.

Condiments: ketchup, salt, pepper (pick 'em yourself)

Overall Quality of French Fries: 5 out of 10
