Shake Shack

It's just glorified burger king, and doesn't even have Onion Rings.

Thoughts?

Their shake also tastes like a brick of over-sweetened grease.
:-X

It's been 4 hrs, honestly feels like Tp4 has been poisoned by the amount of grease in the food.

Smashburger > Five Guys > Red Robin > Shake Shack

That's my chain top four, Shake Shack is good, but there are better. The servings are a bit small for the price, and the menu is sparse on options. Not a big fan of their fry style, and their shakes are subpar at best. Great burger though, made with high quality ingredients.
 
never tried Umami Burger or Culver's, both I hear are very good

Agreed that the fries and shakes arent great, but the burgers are crazy. The smoke shack is my favorite burger from restaurants in its category. Hard to beat the fries at five guys.

Five guy fries are mushy. the shack crinkle fries are crispy but they leave it in too long such that it's absorbed too much grease.

Mcdonalds still has the best balanced fries. If I want grease sponges, popeyes fries are similarly juiced up and spiced. But what were they thinking NO ONION RINGS on such a high priced menu.

I actually agree with you. MD's fries are also my gold-standard, but I always ask for them made fresh, and they only have a 7 minute window of being good.
I've had better fries, but at restaurants. I think the quality of the potato and oil has a lot to do with the final taste, and nothing beats duck fat fries.

I would say that this is true of just about any french fry.
An air fryer can bring them back to life about as well as anything.
Cognitive distortions are patterns of thought, typically automatic and unconscious, that cause an inaccurate, negative view of situations, people, and/or events. These include things like jumping to conclusions; black-and-white thinking; negative mental filtering; overgeneralizing; mindreading (incorrectly believing we know what others are thinking, what their motives are); and emotional reasoning (believing that if we are feeling something, or if what we are thinking is associated with a strong emotion, it must be true).

I tried Shake Shack for the first time in 2022 while I was in Detroit for the NAIAS and the chocolate malted shake was heavenly. Didn't try anything else from there though. Five Guys is bottom-of-the-barrel... sorry. Never had Culver's, never even heard of Umami Burger.

Tom Wahl's > Schaller's > Smashburger > everything else.

Also Shake Shack was issued a permit to build a store in my area back in February but I'm not sure what's going on there. Hopefully that comes to fruition.
