Yes, Shake Shack is a country-wide burger chain. Regardless, it’s still a great option for a quick meal in University City. The burgers are great, the cheese fries are even better, and if you leave without finishing all of that off with a milkshake, you’ve done it all wrong. You might not feel great afterwards, but that’s the gamble you take when you eat a large amount of fast food in a 30-minute sitting.
