Shake Shack - Westfield UTC
Gourmet burger chain with frozen custard
Fast Food · University City · $
“Premium fast food” is the draw at this “widely syndicated” Danny Meyer chain, offering “mouthwatering” burgers, “rich shakes” and other “upgraded” eats (plus beer and wine) at a “manageable price” ; the La Jolla location at the UTC mall boasts a patio and local brews on tap.

There will always be debate over which place/chain has the best burgers and, in the end, it comes down to what you like. That said, I think that the burgers here are amazing - far better than either Five Guys or In n Out. I particularly enjoy the smokeshack. Any of the burgers, though, are very flavorful - all the salt, grease, and meatiness that you could desire, but without it being overwhelming or gross. The buns are great and the fries are fine (unlike In n Out...). The shakes are a bit too rich for me, but they do taste like good, old-fashioned shakes. In the end, though, this place is all about the burgers, which, in my opinion, hit it out of the park.

A long line to order but it can move quickly. The menu is not too large, and depending on what you get and the crowd it can be about 10 minutes. There's a lot of seating inside and outside. I only got cheese fries and a vanilla shake, and they both were okay. The fries were cooked alright, and the cheese has a creamy look and's not bad but just different. The shake is alright, on the fluffy thick side. I think the items are 25% too expensive for what you get.

Taste is probably worth 4 stars. But I paid 30 bucks for 2 burgers, cheese fries, and a custard shake. The burgers, while tasty, were small and the buns had a tad too much butter. I'd much rather go across the street to 5 guys for a cheaper, bigger, better burger with more topping choices. This is the first shake shack I've been to but from my understanding there's a considerable amount of variation in quality between franchises.
