Sure, it’s a chain - but it’s a hell of a chain if you’re into smash burgers. Shake Shack’s are excellent little handheld versions with thin, crispy patties, melted American cheese, and more toppings like lettuce, tomato, and bacon if you want them. The ’Shroom Burger - with a fried, cheese-filled portobello mushroom - is also a very good reason to go meatless. The Lincoln Road location is never empty, but even with a big crowd the line usually moves quickly, which is also how you’ll consume their reliably delicious burger too.
