We were recently invited by Shake Shack for a Blogger meetup called #ShackMeetUp at their unique “off” Lincoln Road location. It was a great #burgersforbreakfast type of meet up this past Sunday where we also saw @TheFashionPoet, @MrMiamiMarvin and @FatGirlHedonist. We even had an unexpected appearance by Zaire Wade, Dwyane Wade’s son, who came with a few friends for a Sunday snack unrelated to the blogger meetup.
Anyways, while we heard about a “secret menu” that accompanies Shake Shack’s wonderful classics, we never got a chance to quite experience them. Simply, because we never asked or tried. So please withhold all “late pass” comments…we get it, we know. Either way, we were introduced to:
1) The Shake Shack Grilled Cheese (add bacon or tomatoes if you’d like as well) – which is basically their potato bread bun flipped inside out and enhanced with TONS of cheese. Deliciously simple. (the first photo below)
2) And two, their Smoke Shack Fries – which is their traditional fries topped with all of the ingredients that are in the Smoke Shack Burger, which includes: all-natural applewood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper and ShackSauce. (second photo below).
In essence, their “secret menu” items are not so secret as they’re really just a combination of existing menu items mixed and matched. But…that grilled cheese, tho.
Other “secret menu” items include:
Peanut Butter & Bacon ShackBurger
The Smoke Shack Quad Burger
Shackburger with pickles
Shackburger with Onions
Shakeburger Cheese Dog Hotdog
Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Extra Shack Sauce on anything
The Infamous “Shandy” – Shandy lemonade beer
“Chili” Pepper Cheese Fries
Protein Style (Bun-less) Any Burger
