Ryan stayed home with Dad while Mom grabbed this sandwich to go from Penn Station, to be eaten at home.

General Comments:

As covered in our Burgers post for Shake Shack, there are now several locations in Manhattan. Melissa happened to be in Penn Station one day and saw that there was a new Shake Shack there so she grabbed a Chicken Shack to be reviewed at home.

Penn Station obviously gets a ton of foot traffic and surprisingly things weren’t too chaotic on a Saturday afternoon at their new Shake Shack. They were very efficient here and had most items pre-made and sitting under heatlamps, which made the wait time for the sandwich under 2 minutes. They also had a good amount of seating. The whole setup honestly looked pretty good which is impressive given its location.

Since we had already reviewed the burgers and fries, this was a simple snack of just the Chick’n Shack, which is a fried chicken breast with lettuce pickles and mayo on a roll.

The fact that this was brought home on a 15 minute subway ride made it a little cold and probably detracted from the experience. Rob enjoyed the sandwich more the first time he had it. It tasted a little generic and not very different from Chick-Fil-A. Melissa thought it was fine but nothing special, but was impressed by the sheer size of the chicken breast.

Overall this was an OK experience which would likely have been better had we tried it right when it was ordered. I guess we’ll just have to give it another chance since we are fans of Shake Shack.
