Shake Shack at 2nd and PCH in Long Beach is now open and has been open for about 2 weeks now. On the day of it opening, November 7th, me and 2 friends decided to give it a shot. We spent around $60 dollars at Shake Shack and after ordering almost the entire menu I can give you a firm answer on how good shake shack really is, and if it is overall better than In n Out.

I should first mention that there are three things I account for rating restaurants or fast food places. Taste, time, and price. Out of the things I bought from Shake Shack, that being 3 Shack Burgers, 1 Chicken Shack, 1 Order of Fries, 1 Order of Bacon Cheese Fries, 1 Oreo Milkshake, and 1 Salted Caramel Milkshake, the absolute best of the foods was the Cheese Fries. The Cheese Fries without a doubt beat In-n-Out’s fries I think mainly because the Fries at In-n-Out are soggy and oily, while Shake Shack’s fries are soft, well seasoned and condiments added to your fries are on the menu unlike Animal Style Fries at In-n-Out. But the real reason someone would go to a fast food burger place is for a burger. And I can say without a doubt that In-n-Out’s burger is way better than Shake Shack’s. The reasons being you can buy 3 burgers at In-n-Out or 1 Burger at Shake Shack, Shake Shack’s burgers are smaller and

Overall, In-n-Out wins in this debate. This is mainly because Shake Shack is too expensive, the line is always out the door, and lack size in their burgers.
