Breakfast is cookin’ at JFK, Fulton Center, Grand Central, Penn Station and Union Station.

This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting.

  • Good Ingredients

    100% all-natural Angus beef, vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. No hormones or antibiotics – EVER. We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded artisanal producers.

  • Good 'n' Green

    Every Shack recycles all bottles and plastics, whether you sort or we do the sorting post-collection. It’s the most efficient way to make sure ZERO recyclable material ends up in landfills. Our cooking oil is reused to produce clean energy and our kitchen food is composted where locally possible.

  • Good Bones

    Each Shack is constructed thoughtfully and purposefully to fit its unique environment, using a creative design approach that creates places and experiences like nowhere else. All good in the wood!

  • Good Neighbors

    We’re all about our hood! We strive to be the best employers and citizens of each community we call home. Whether partnering with Share Our Strength or working with local charitable organizations to donate 5% of sales of a specific concrete – the Shack is committed to giving back.
