Obligatory Shake Shack Post

It’s no secret that Shake Shack is pretty awesome…

My go-to order is a Shack burger with pickles, cheese fries, and the Shack-ago dog.  Although the Smoke Shack burger is competing for my favorite…see below!

After a full meal of cheese fries, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, trying what other people ordered, etc –  I’m usually too full get a shake! I know, I know, I have to step up my game.  BUT I have gotten the ‘Fair Trade’ shake – which is a coffee shake made with 100% certified organic Arabica fair trade beans.  So delicious.  I like to get it with chocolate ice cream 🙂

What’s your favorite shake/ice cream/custard?

PRO MEAL TIP: (If you really love cheese) Ask for cheese on the side. Why? Because who wouldn’t want to dip their fries, cheeseburger, hot dogs, and God knows what else in MORE cheese. They gave me a side of cheese once because they forgot it on my fries, and now I’ll never go back! Enjoy some of my Shake Shack visits below…

  • The Elevation Burger (Double meat, double cheese) with bacon, “original” toppings (elevation sauce, pickles, lettuce, tomato), raw  or caramelized onion (depends on my mood), ketchup, and mayo.
  • Side of fries
  • Chocolate shake with oreo cookies

Everything is amazing.  Tender, juicy meat. Great toppings. Honestly one of my favorite burgers. Fries are good too. I love that you can get your burgers wrapped in lettuce if you’re going low carb!

The menu can be a little overwhelming at first…but I love that you can customize most items! I can’t steer away from the meatball sliders (you pick a meat & sauce).  So far, I’ve been to Meatball & Co. 3 times & I haven’t been disappointed yet!  Below is everything that I’ve tried & loved!

  • Slider – Spicy pork meatball w/ Cheesy goodness sauce
  • Slider – Beef meatball w/ Tomato sauce
  • Slider – Buffalo chicken meatball w/ Bleu Cheese sauce (my personal favorite, but it’s a special!)
  • Slider – Chicken meatball w/ Pesto sauce

  • Side of Roasted Asparagus (I believe this was the daily veggie special)
  • Side of their House Salad
  • Mixed greens Mozzarella Bacon Tomato red onion and mustard vinaigrette (Daily Salad Special)

They also have NOT JUST daily meatball specials; but other specials as well – They update their Facebook page daily to let people know what’s up for the day/week.

Meatball & Co. doesn’t stop at meatball sliders – you can get a meatbowl (4 meatballs, pick your sauce, pick your bread); meatball sandwiches; cookies; ice cream sandwiches; floats; beer/wine etc.. They have also just recently added Gluten Free meatballs (available most days).  Overall, I have nothing but good things to report about Meatball & Co. – a great addition to the area & after a few visits I know I’ll be a regular!
