New Menu: Shake Shack

By:  Jordan Burns

Shake Shack is known for their gooey burgers, crunchy fries, and custard milk shakes, but they have changed the game by adding BBQ flavors to the menu. We are all obsessed with Shake Shack, and this month, Shake Shack impressed us yet again with their delicious food. The new menu features the BBQ Shackmeister Burger, BBQ Chick’n Shack, and BBQ Bacon Cheese Fries. They also have three seasonal shakes on their menu, including: Mint Cookies and Cream, Mud Pie, and Salted Vanilla Toffee. For your convenience, I tried it all.
