    The Ed Note soliciting contrarian views from the Popville readership was a great way to start a new work week. Thanks for the laugh Dan!

        Indeed :)

    Let me be the first contrarian to weigh in here. I’ve eaten at Shake Shack. I’ve seen the huge line in Times Square. I can’t figure out what the big deal is. The good news is that Shake Shack presents another low cost option for Logan Circle. I can certainly support that (although I’ll be spending my money at Popeye’s.)

      clearly the Ed note was lost on you.

        OR, in a way, entirely meant for pcat

    The most overhyped thing at Shake Shack is their burger – because both the shroom burger and chicken sandwich are money and get overshadowed by it.

      2nd. the burger is good sometimes but i’ve found that their execution is hit or miss. the chicken sandwich is a real winner. better than chik fil a, and i’m a southerner.

  • Arouet

    Thank god, another option beyond Popeyes….

    Lol @ the Ed. Note

      +1 — the Editor’s Note made me LOL.

  • Truxton Thomas

    Walked right by it this morning and missed the signage. I guess that’s a compliment to my current podcast!

  • Mootje1

    is there an estimated opening date?

    • JohnH

      If they are hiring, I’d imagine in the next 2-4 weeks.

    Hey Dan. Just wanted to let you know that I don’t get the hype re: Shake Shack. Five Guys is best, Z Burger is a distant second, and SS is a WAY distant third.

  • Ross

    The hype makes sense because their burgers are good. Concretes are even better. Those fries, on the other hand…

  • NotAFan

    Do they have turkey or veggie burgers yet? I mean, it’s 2017.

    • JohnH

      The shroom burger is delicious. I’m not remotely a vegetarian either.

  • Bloomy

    I just can’t get behind a burger joint that’s clearly, severely lacking in the french fry department.

  • Rob

    Their burgers are soggy. Awful burgers.
