Shake Shack Restaurant Review

: Danny Meyer, the restaurateur behind NYC's Gramercy Tavern and Union Square Cafe, brings his Shake Shack chain to Boston to offer what are arguably the best burgers in the city, along with juicy hot dogs. Concretes, dense frozen custard blended at high speed with various mix-ins, make for a memorable sweet treat (try the Concrete Jungle --- peanut butter, banana and hot fudge). Beer and wine are also available for quaffing. Other locations.
