New Restaurant Alert:Shake Shack has landed

Burgers, Fast Food Classics

5015 Westheimer Rd, Space A2411 (near Cheesecake Factory), Houston, TX 77056, Galleria

The New York based restaurant has finally landed in Houston. Expect long lines during certain times. The wait we had on Friday night around 6:30 was better than expected. The menu has your basic burger joint items. Choose from burgers, hot dogs, a chicken sandwich, fries and frozen custard. They also offer beer and wine. If you love treating your pooch, there’s also a doggie menu. We opted for a double hamburger, single cheeseburger, Chickn Shack and the Cupcake Crunch Concrete. 

The burgers were good but not on my top list for burgers. On the other hand, the Chickn Shack was absolutely amazing. The batter was well seasoned and fried to a perfect crisp.

The Cupcake Crunch Concrete was a great way to end the meal. The description made you want to order this: Frozen vanilla custard, fudge sauce, Fluff Bake Bar devil's food cake with pretzel crunch and caramel buttercream. 

In short: Only fight through the Galleria crowds to go to Shake Shack if you don’t mind standing in line. Order the Chickn Shack.
