Located right outside New York New York Casino right on the strip, Shake Shack brings their East Cost favorites to the West in a proper Las Vegas location. As you enter the restaurant, you will find a large menu board with many different options. Prices seem to be on the higher side for burgers in comparison to their West Coast fast food rival In-N-Out. Unlike fast food, Shake Shack at this location is more of a restaurant because you order and are given a buzzer while waiting for your order. We were able to find plenty of available seating inside, but there is some outdoor seating as well.
Today, we decided to order the double ShackBurger, the Shack Stack, crinkle cut fries, and a caramel shake, The burgers themselves were not very big, but the meat patties were definitely larger than In-N-Out. The meat was dense, but not juicy. There is a tasty char on both sides and tasted fresh. There was an ample amount of creamy American cheese in both burgers. The double ShackBurger tasted OK with its potato-like bun with Shack Sauce. I could not taste much of the sauce in the burger when you taste a full bite, but it did resemble a more tangy thousand island dressing. The Shack Stack actually looked larger than the double ShackBurger due to its deep-fried mushroom center and came a whole lot hotter too. Like the ShackBurger, the beef was not amazing,but went well with the “healthier” mushroom center. The added pickles in the burger tasted very fresh and were cut fairly thick. The Shack Stack did come together well in terms of size, but did not taste as much as it costed. The fries came fresh and crispy while being lightly salted. Other than its shape, the fries were no different from any other standard fried potato product. The caramel shake did have hints of caramel, but resembled more like vanilla. The shake also did not taste as much like real ice cream in comparison to In-N-Out.
Overall, Shake Shack serves up a large variety of food options at expensive prices. The burgers came together well, but I cannot allocate the price spent to the product received. Although I have not tried many of their other menu items like frozen custard, I do not see myself coming back to Shake Shack anytime soon. If you really want to have a taste of an expensive New York favorite, then give Shake Shack a try. Otherwise, just go to In-N-Out.
