For a hearty burger followed by a thick and creamy milkshake, head to Shake Shack. This eatery is located in Center City, not far from Rittenhouse Claridge, and features a menu focused on some of the most popular American fare, such as burgers, hot dogs, shakes, frozen custard, and other cool treats.
The burgers are made with 100 percent Angus beef, except for the vegetarian-friendly 'Shroom Burger. Meat lovers might go for the Smoke Shack, which consists of a cheeseburger topped with apple wood smoked bacon, chopped cherry pepper, and Shack Sauce. Those with bigger appetites might opt for the double instead of the single-patty burger. Order a side of crinkle-cut fries to go with your hot dog or burger followed by one of the cool treats. You could always try one of the specialty desserts such as the Center City Pretzel, a soft pretzel topped with vanilla custard, banana, marshmallow sauce, and a caramel sauce.
