For a couple guys born and raised in Los Angeles, we’ve only ever heard whispers here and there about the New York City burger joint, Shake Shack. Mostly in defense from friends from the east coast, when they are in town and you take them to In N’ Out.
Once they opened up the first west coast location a couple miles from our office in West Hollywood, CA, we knew we had to go see what all the hype was about. We loaded up our brand new G Pen Elite and made the trek.
After waiting in line for over 45 minutes, we ordered up a SmokeShack™, ShackBurger®, Chick'n Shack™, Shack-cago Dog®, some crinkle-cut fries and their famous shakes.
It was very delicious, but not 45 minutes in line delicious. We’ll stick to In N’ Out and let the hype beasts and east coast transplants have this place to themselves for now.
Shake Shack is open 11AM-10:30PM at 8520 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA, 90069
