Miami New Times' Description
Before LeBron James signed with the Miami Heat, the biggest hype in town was centered around Shake Shack, which opened in June 2010. With ongoing, breathless media coverage, this New York City-based burger joint was hailed as the Second Coming. The results have been mixed at the self-serve South Beach hot spot. Some patrons are already addicted to the thick custard shakes, such as the Miami-inspired Key Lime Pie Oh My ($6.25), which features a hefty slice of pie mixed into a delicious vanilla custard. Other diners bemoan the fact that their burger is, well, just a burger. Actually, the smallish patty ($3.75) is an antibiotic- and hormone-free blend of freshly ground Black Angus beef molded into a patty and cooked medium (unless otherwise requested). The ShackBurger ($4.75) comes with American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and secret ShackSauce. Vegetarians will be lured by the 'Shroom Burger ($6.75), which is a gooey, fried cheese blob coated with Portobello mushrooms and served on a bun. But, hey, nothing is really healthful here, especially the decadent Yukon Gold cheese fries ($3.75). Grab a table outside, put your diet aside, and indulge your sweet tooth with a shake or sundae featuring gourmet mix-ins such as Valrhona chocolate pearls, chocolate truffle cookie dough, and peanut butter sauce. Oh, and speaking of LeBron, Shake Shack has already prepared a foodie homage to the NBA star with its Le-BRAT James griddled bratwurst ($5.75), topped with Tabasco-simmered onions.
