I always love shake shack burger and milkshake. During my short course in Harvard University, I did not want to lose the opportunity to enjoy this well-known burger in the Harvard Square. It is not far from the Harvard Square Station and the restaurant itself is divided into two sections, indoor and outdoor. When I was there, the place was... More

I ordered the cheeseburger, cheese fries and root beer float (a bit excessive). Everything was delicious!

Thanks for a real treat. The fried mushroom burger supports those of us who are vegetarian not because it's good for you (this sandwich was not good for you, lol). It was wonderful as were the fries. The lemonade/tea was lightly sweetened! Yay! The place was very crowded, but clean and efficient. Loved it

It's the same delicious food I've come to expect from Shake Shack but without the crazy wait that you sometimes get at the New York locations.

Great burger made to order with thick cut, wavy fries! Peppermint shake was good too! A nice place in the center of town. Sit upstairs and overlook the park. Great to relax, enjoy a casual meal and people watch.

My double cheese burger tasted fresh and clean - as I've come to expect from Shake Shack. Fries seemed to come from the bottom of the warmer. Overdone and just okay. NOT usual for Shake Shack. (One Ketchup dispenser was out too. Restaurant was slow, but the employee I mentioned it too didn't seem to care.)

Nice room to sit and look out on second floor. Shake Shack's burgers are the best of the genre. The fries are excellent, and you can get a beer. If you want a burger and fries, this is your best choice. More expensive and slower than McDonalds, but worth it.

One of my go-to weekend places for lunch. The burgers are, in fact, quite good. The fries are delicious. And I'm a pushover for their shakes. If they sold nothing but shakes, I'd still go. For a chain restaurant, it's really very good.

We came 4 times during lunch time, were afraid from the line but it was dramatically progressed in a quick way. There were many vacant seats in the upper stair. We all loved the Vegetarian option ('Shroom Burger) and the Creamed Fries! The service at the desk was *GREAT*!! They had one mistake in one of the orders and it... More
