“Funky Cool Place To Eat - Really Pricey, Meh On The Burgers, Good Fries and Shakes, Dog Friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I found this place using Scout on my Samsung phone. We were there over the weekend on our way back to Boston from NJ and were so excited to see that they had outside dining on the deck and a nice big bowl of water for dogs.

The shakes were good but not as frozen/cold as i like. Probably because it was so hot. Delicious, nevertheless.

We ordered cheeseburgers and fries. The fries were really good, nice and hot and fresh. The burgers left a lot to be desired. They were very thin and chewy. Loved how they cut the rolls though. The don't slice all the way through so it's like burger pocket.

Wicked expensive. 2 one-patty burgers, 2 small fries, 2 shakes = $45. Out of control for a small, not so great a burger.

Inside is really cool, literally and figuratively. Funky decor, they had the soccer game on and everyone was just having a great time.

One thing they have down is the order and pick up line. Really streamlined, which I love. I used to be in the restaurant business and disorganized takeout drives me nuts.

I'd go back again one more time to see if maybe we hit it on a bad day but if it's the same, won't go back.

“A Favorite Guilty Pleasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

After hearing much hype and positive feedback about Shake Shack, I visited with friends for lunch. It was totally what I was expecting and more! The burger was one of the best I have ever had - up there or better than 5 Guys, In-N-Out, and Plan B, all of which I also love. The service was very quick and friendly as well. Can't wait to go back!!

“The Best Burgers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

These are the best burgers and buns I have ever had. It is a well oiled machine with good service and someone there to clean the tables as they turn.
The concrete dessert is delicious with good mix-ins.

“Best Burgers in Fairfield”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Shake shack is the best burger joint in Fairfield bar none. Burgers are delicious and fries are amazing. I've never tried the shakes, but my wife and kids love them.
