As soon as I heard that there was a Shake Shack in Stratford Westfield I NEEDED to go. So on Friday I finally dragged my brother there! As soon as we walked in he remarked "it's just like a McDonalds" and I should've taken that as a warning. After asking the cashier what he recommended, I got a Shake Burger and I can't remember what my brother got but it didn't look much different.
As soon as the food came I was disappointed, it looked lackluster and there was hardly any burger! The fries were hard and cold, and my brother said the cheese on the cheesy chips wasn't great. Then we tried our burgers, it was OK but nothing great, the sauce was a bit sickly after a while. It had the tiniest bit of lettuce and tomato on, not good value for money at all. The drinks were made up of mainly ice! My brother ordered a large half ice tea half lemonade...he might as well have got water as the ice watered it down so much. He was going to get a Shake but he gave that a miss after the terrible food. He was right it was just a glorified McDonalds.
So in summary, it wasn't worth it. I've been told Five Guys is better by some, and by others that that also isn't great so I'm skeptical to try it. Let me know what you guys think of Shake Shack below.
