Countdown to Shake Shack on South Beach

In New York City, Short Order visited Shake Shack on the Upper West Side to sample some of the burger joint's famous food before it opens here this summer.

We've been to Shake Shack many times; it's our guilty pleasure in New York. Thankfully, the line wasn't too bad last Friday afternoon, although we've waited 30 minutes for their cheese fries. Yes, even so-called VIPs will have to stand in a queue to sate their burger craving when Shake Shack launches on South Beach.

Menu

highlights include the ShackBurger (with American cheese, lettuce,

tomato, and ShackSauce); 'ShroomBurger (a veggie-friendly fried

Portobello mushroom sandwich with melted Muenster and cheddar cheeses,

lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce); Second City Bird Dog (chicken sausage

with mustard, relish, onion, cucumber, pickles, tomato, sport peppers,

and celery salt); cheese fries (served with melted cheddar and American

cheese sauce); and, of course, the shakes (vanilla, chocolate, caramel,

black-and-white, peanut butter, and strawberry). All of the hormone-

and antibiotic-free beef used at Shake Shack is black Angus and ground

daily. For diners with food allergies, there are also gluten-free

options. Unique to the Miami location will be the Key Lime Pie Oh My

shake, which combines vanilla custard with a slice of key lime pie. How

very Miami.

While we can't wait for the spot

to debut this summer on Lincoln Road, we know we will have to spend

more time at the gym to counteract the effects of those cheese fries

and shakes.
