Moving on from saucy breakfast adverts we will now move onto burgers and fries. （・∀・）
After a long day of searching Shaun the Sheep statues I needed a massive long break. Wow, I can’t believe my breakfast lasted that long. A full 6 hours.
I’ve been wanting to try out Shake Shack for a long while but wanted to wait for things to die down a little bit. I think I went at a great time because when I got there only a few people were waiting but the queue became longer afterwards.

I ordered my food and I asked where the seating areas… There’s 3 seating areas: side part on the outside piazza, a part in the centre and one indoor bit (which is where I sat).
I had the Shack Stack burger with fries and a regular diet coke.
The Shake Stack burger consists of a mushroom fried in batter, a cheeseburger topped with slice of tomato and lettuce. Looks massive but it isn’t really. Small for a burger that cost £8.50! Expensive. I think the burger itself was quite boring compared to the Five Guys burger I had the other day. I had to separate the mushroom from the burger because it was hard to bite from top to bottom. (Does that make any sense to you?).

The fries were great and I love the way it’s shaped but there just wasn’t enough of them!
Total cost came to £14.20. I was quite disappointed with the food really – size and all. I actually went back to Five Guys the next day just to make sure I was making the right decision in that I like Fives Guys more than Shake Shack.
My geeky rating: 3.5/5
– Love the fries (but not enough for what I paid for!)
– Number of seating areas around the Piazza
– Polite staff
– Portion size compared to other burger joints isn’t fantastic
– Toppings are quite boring
