Every once in a while a sandwich, no, a BURGER comes along that we must shout-out. I give you, with much joy, the Shack Stack from Shake Shack.
Just when I thought one of, if not my favorite place to grab a burger couldn’t be any better, I fall in love with it all over again. Don’t get me wrong, I dig the Shack Burger and its big brother the Double Shack Burger but “The Stack” is in another universe.
On a night where I was starving I went to Shake Shack around 8 p.m. to destroy some food, I just left the gym hours earlier with nothing to eat so pardon the word “destroy.” The Shack Stack was the only burger I have not tried from Danny Meyer’s megahit and expanding Shake Shack empire and this was the night to get it in.
At $8.75, the Shack Stack combines two of Shake Shack’s menu items, the ‘Shroom Burger and the single Shack Burger. To break that down for you, you’re getting juicy, organic Angus beef, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and Shack Sauce. Wait, I’m not done. And it’s topped with a crispy, deep-fried portabella mushroom stuffed with Muenster and Cheddar cheeses.
Trust me on this one, if you’re a burger fan, and you love a good mushroom, this is your ticket to heaven. Shake Shack’s burgers are mad juicy, and mad good as is, but adding a portabella volcano of cheeses makes me want to resurrect the word “Blazin.” The shroom was crispy as advertised and the cheeses just did it for me. If I had to nitpick, you just never know which side of the sandwich the cheese will explode out of, but hey, this is one burger I will not beef with.
