    Double shake shack is a must, melty and juicy. Fries are good too. Take a any shake, you can't go wrong with it. A tastier and healthier version of McDonalds. So happy we finally have it in Europe.

    It smells so good when you get to covent garden that you have to try it. A bit on the small side, but very tasty, and the cheese fries are so good. A bit pricey though.

    Staff are happy to hold a table for you after you order and while you wait if you are dining solo. They can also bring your food over when your buzzer goes off. Really great service. Very friendly.

    Awesome place for burger on the go (it's really hard to get a table). There is always a q but it goes quickly. Milkshakes are thick and tasty. Reminds me of In n Out Burger in Cali.

    For first timers I would recommend the shack burger... if you're not having fries, then get 2 single burgers! Shake Shack is my happy place!!

    In the fast food category, it's a simple and good one. I love soft buns. Not heavy unless if you add toppings or double it. Really good fries, you may add cheese on top if you wanna go crazy 😄

    Taste is a tad different than the American counterparts (due to different beef and bacon sources), but it's still very tasty. Go for the Shack-cago dog if you want a great American hot dog style.

    I visited this restaurant in New York and really enjoyed it. I was not disappointed by this one, located in the heart of Covent Garden. French fries with cheddar are delicious... but not really light!

    The burger craze continue and if you're looking for the perfect one -you'll find it here. Simple, fresh meat makes it deliciously irrisistable topped off with their signature frozen custard to finish

    If you want a taste of New York, you will find here one of the best burger in London! / Shake Shack vous donne un avant-goût new-yorkais en plein cœur de Londres.

    Best burger I've had here in London. I usually don't rate burgers outside of North America but the ones here are legit.

    I love the cheesy chips because the cheese was super nice but it was more like a cheese sauce rather than real cheese. The burger bun was good but I would recommend you to order double! Not single

    A bit more expensive than in NY but fries and custard portions are much bigger! A burger each and fries to share plus the special flavour custard of the day is the best deal!

    The burgers aren't the best in the city for me but the crinkle-cut fries and shakes are insanely good and worth the visit alone.

    So, Burger was totally awesome, PeanutButter Shake was perfect too. Chips and Frozen custard not so great. Still FiveGuys is winner for me. 🍔👌

    Not a bad burger and their crinkle cut fries are great, with the backdrop of Covent Garden's historic market building. Burger, fries and drink came to £12+ (a bit pricey), but I'll definitely be back.

    SmokeShack was weaker than I thought. Cheese fries; good and tasty. Good ale. Believe ShackBurger is a better option to go for. Unfortunate, as expectations were high due to talks of an IPO.

    Go on a rainy day - smaller queues, easy to get seats and they have umbrellas if you ask. An get the fifty-fifty. Not too sweet so nice and refreshing with your burger

    The vegetarian burger (portabello mushroom and melted cheese) is the best! And don't miss the peanut butter milkshake.

    The usual shake shack standards, go for the shack burger with some cheese fries and a vanilla milkshake 👌. Enjoy!

    The shroom burger is the best veggie burger I've had in London ! The fries and black & white milkshake is amazing too!

    Could be pretty busy but if you are a burger lover then you must try, they taste just as good as the one they have in New York!

    The burger and cheese fries were good - not my favourite in London but good. The ale was excellent. Once construction stops across the way it'll be a much more pleasant lunch spot.

    Try a taste of 80s nostalgia: CRINKLE-CUT CHIPS. Better than other recent US burger imports but need to step up their game to compete with London's thriving burgerama. Rammed with hungry US tourists.

    Same quality as in NYC. A lot better than 5 Guys around the corner. Would recommend if you like a full flavour juicy burger

    Burger was an upmarket version of a McDonald's burger. There's other places to go for a decent burger. But the cheesy fries are worth it and I'll be back for a milkshake!

    The burgers come in many shapes and sizes, but we say go for the SmokeShack burger with Wiltshire cured smoked bacon

    For a mind blowing experience ask for their Double SmokeShack, and you'll have the best burger you've ever had. Shackburger is nothing amazingl, and single version too small.

    Good fast food burger, cooked medium, crunchy toppings. Soft and sweet bun (I'd prefer a bit of crunch!) crinkle cut cheesy fries a winner.

    One of my top buns in London. If you are feeling the night before, add a mix your own concrete & cheesy fries 🍔🍨🍟

    Madison Square Park in NYC comes to London. These are burgers like our mom made growing up in North America. DO NOT come here on a calorie restricted diet. Yum.

    Finally get to try my first one. A good burger (greasy, great for hangovers) but think 5 guys is better.

    Better than McDonalds, always packed though so you must be patient. Worth a try if you are up for burgers in the area.

    Single shack burger, cheese fries, fifty/fifty. Thank me later. Unlike the NYC's joint the queue is manageable.

    You need a good 20 minutes to get your food. This doesn't pretend to be fast food. The frozen custard is excellent and the burgers tasty. Little Expensive but it IS Covent Garden.

    Fresh and clean burgers, crunchy crinkle cut fries. The shack stack is especially beautiful.
