Danny Meyer’s hit fast-casual burger joint finally made it’s way to Las Vegas last year with the opening of its location at New York New York. Their second location in Downtown Summerlin soon followed, prompting me to check it out.
My favorite burger has been the Smoke Shack so far. The little bit of heat from the chopped cherry peppers is an amazing complement to the smoked bacon and ShackSauce. The Shack Stack with its beef patty and fried portobello is tasty too, but at $9.59 for a single, it borders on pricey for a fast food spot. With all their burgers the buns are too squishy for my tastes (I prefer them toasted and firmer) and the beef patties lack the sear and crust of better burgers around town. The best thing going for Shake Shack are the concretes. In particular, the Red Velvet Rocks with its vanilla custard and chunks of red velvet cheesecake is a reason to come back over and over.
