A few months ago, we told you about the upcoming arrival of Shake Shack, a New York chain specializing in burgers and shakes (‘natch) at the corner of 20th & Sansom. More recently, we brought this construction site to your attention again, noting the excellent and unexpected addition of greenery to an otherwise uninteresting plywood wall. Last week, the plywood wall came down, and on Tuesday, Shake Shack officially opened for business. And people, like, totally freaked out.
The line on the first day wrapped around the building. Foobooz did a four-hour live blogging of the opening. Today, there were again people climbing over each other to get in the door.
Well after the lunch rush
The mob inside
Not since Federal Donuts do…
