Cheap Eats: Shake Shack

Standard

First off, today is Frugal Foodie’s one–year anniversary! Super exciting, and the year has gone by super–fast. I certainly have a lot more to do in the kitchen so here’s to many more!

Let's rewind the clock a year, remember baby Ajax? One of the best things about this bog, I'm sure.

Speaking of stuff to say about food, The Russian and I went to Shake Shack, finally, last week.  Everybody lost their minds when it came to Boston from my hometown of New York City, and I waited to go (since I’ve been to the one back home, it wasn’t as exciting), and I finally got my butt over there.  It was delicious, just what I needed (though I have to say, Tasty Burger is still my #1).

It's a close second, though.

We got a couple burgers, some fries, and a peanut butter shake and the ShackMiester Ale, the signature beer made by Brooklyn Brewery. We got a little of everything, and man, it was awesome.

So awesome.

So awesome.

The burgers were super juicy, the fries were crispy (and crinkle cut, which rock when done right), and the shake was so thick we needed a spoon.  Everything in you want in a lunch, at a causal spot with a lot of sass.

It cost about $15 a person, and we went all out, so it’s definitely worth a trek up to Chestnut Hill.
