I had been driving on Glades Road in Boca Raton for weeks wondering what was going to be in that odd shaped building being constructed at the end of the P.F. Chang’s parking lot. Finally, I read the words Shake Shack– burgers, fries and custard – on the outside of the building.
On the second day of opening, we ventured out after school to find a line reaching outside of the building and into the parking lot. After standing in line for 10 minutes (which was worth it), we read the menu and realized it’s just burgers, hot dogs, fries and ice cream. Hand-spun shakes, floats,custard in a cone or a cup- I wanted to try it all. I decided on the “concrete with strawberries”. My one daughter was elated because she loves burgers and couldn’t wait to order. My 2 year old was disappointed to find no chicken fingers on the menu- a kid’s menu staple in my family. I ordered her a burger anyway.
The burgers were delicious made from 100% all-natural Angus beef. No hormones or antibiotics. The crinkle fries are crisp with the right amount of salt. If you are buying for little ones, buy one to share. It’s a generous portion! Oh, yes! They serve beer and wine! My kind of burger joint.
We have been back a few times now and lines have subsided due to the summer heat and FAU in summer session. It’s a winner in my kids list of favorite restaurants. Every time we drive by I hear from the back seat “SHAKE SHACK!”.
