Do want to try a new place with new burgers? We found a place for you. Have you heard about Shake Shack? Well, Shake Shack is a place in Downtown Crossing in Boston where they have burgers, fries, milkshakes, and ice cream.

 They are located in 322 Washington St, Boston, MA 02108. If you are willing to try a new place, then come on over to Shake Shack! They have food to die for, despite how it’s pretty pricey for a burger.

The inside of Shake Shack was clean and really busy. The place looked small from the outside, but big on the inside, and the color scheme is green mostly. Shake Shack has a different system forhandling their customers unlike any other fast food place. Here, they ask for your order on a tablet if you paying with a card, or if your paying with cash, you go to the register.They ask you for your number, and they send a text to you to let you know that your order is ready.
Yaritza ordered a ShackBurger. Her burger came with cheese, topped with lettuce, tomato and Shack Sauce. She also ordered fries and a coconut snowball milkshake. For all of this, it cost her the total of sixteen dollars with tax. Melanie ordered a Chick’n Shack, and that is crispy chicken breast topped with lettuce and buttermilk herb mayo. Also, she ordered fries with a fountain soda. The total cost of it was twelve dollars and seventy-three cents with tax.

The food was steaming hot when we got it; when we went to bite into the crispy chicken, it was crunchy but  juicy. The burger was thick but just the right size burger. The fries were crispy but soft on the inside. They were not too salty, but they had  a little bit of salt. Also, the large fries seem to be similar to the size of a small size, but the price for them was three dollars and nine cents. We interviewed Mr.Rosenthal, a teacher and Shake Shack fan at RHS, about the restaurant in order to learn more about it. 

Mr.Rosenthal’s “go to meal is a veggie burger and some fries and a milkshake” he specifically said. He continued by saying that “if you’re gonna go, you’re gonna have to go all the way in”

He also said the food came really fast, especially since Shake shake is a really busy fast food place. Mr. Rosenthal says that he usually gets his food within five minutes.  According to Mr.Rosenthal, you’d usually go to Shake shake just to treat yourself, noting that “you need to treat yourself here and there.”

So, there you have it. If you’re maybe thinking this burger place sounds good, then give it a try! It is good to try new things, especially if its a burger! I mean, who doesn’t love burgers? You won’t be disappointed.
