The hype. The buzz. The waiting. All of it came to an end today in Chestnut Hill. It was time to try the Shake Shack for the first time.
Yesterday, Twitter blew up with food lovers talking about the grand opening of Massachusetts' first and only Shake Shack. I knew it would be a mob scene, so I waited very patiently for today. I got there just after one o'clock and joined the line was outside of the building.
It took about 25 minutes to get inside. From there... the tough task of deciding what to eat.

You get an up close and personal look at the kitchen as you place your order.
It took about 10 minutes to get my food once I ordered.
I got a vanilla shake. Really good!
Their fries are to die for. Might as well go all out and get cheese on top.
I got the SmokeShack burger. It comes with bacon, cheese, cherry pepper and ShackSauce.
The Shake Shack certainly lived up to all of the hype. Just the perfect combination of food from start to finish. Every single French fry was golden brown and crisp. The burger was an explosion of tasty flavors. I'm looking forward to trying out many of the other items on their menu including the black & white shake, frozen custard, their hot dogs and beer. Shake Shack, welcome to Massachusetts!
