At DGC our passion for PR might be overshadowed by our passion for food.. This week we decided to pit local burger spots against each other and see which location came out on top.
Turns out, it wasn’t that close of a competition…Madison Square Park’s Shake Shack took home gold without breaking a sweat.
While there can only be one winner, burgers are burgers, so no one is truly a loser. Below hear from a few of our biggest burger fans on their favorite burger and, more importantly, why.
My favorite local burger spot is Shake Shack because I am a big fan of their buns. – Maria Swift, Account Coordinator
It’s got to be Shake Shack – they don’t know how to disappoint. (QP w/ C is obviously a close second though) – Jackie Berte, Senior Account Executive
Shake Shack. Two words: shack sauce. It’s what dreams are made of. – Ali Colangelo, Account Director
I love Shake Shack. My guilty pleasure is a burger and a shake and having it outdoors in the park, makes it all that much sweeter. – Maryliz Ghanem, Vice President
Shake Shack. GET IN MY BELLY. – Gab Berman, Senior Account Executive
Shake Shack– this was a tough one because I am a burger a week kind of gal and these all have a special place in my heart, but Shake Shack just has it all (despite the very long lines). You cannot beat their burgers or amazing cheese fries or the overall aura of being in the park on a nice day. – Peyton McCarthy, Account Executive
Shake Shack ‘shroom burger in the park wins for me. The line is long, but always worth the wait. – Lexi Hewitt, Account Coordinator
Shake Shack is the best burger in the neighborhood. The line is long but it’s definitely worth it for their perfect, juicy burgers, crinkle fries and the beautiful setting of Madison Square Park. – Mari Santana, Vice President
Schnipper’s, hands down. They have the best milkshakes, which always go well with burgers. The day Soraya and I ordered lunch and they gave us double meals was heaven. – Sara Ajemian, Senior Account Director
All three are solid winners in my book, but what separates Schnipper’s is the cheese fries and special Schnipper’s sauce, along with ample seating and welcoming environment in any weather — can’t eat Shake Shack in the winter! — Pat Wentling, Senior Account Executive
While a classic Quarter Pounder with Cheese is always hard for me to pass up at McDonald’s, my pick has to go to NY Burger & Co, but really only by default – It’s definitely a great burger and I do like the array of dipping sauce options, but I haven’t had a chance to check out Shake Shack or Shnippers yet. – Claire Higgins, Account Executive
I like NY Burger Co. because the food is delicious, the service prompt and polite, and it’s very close to our office. Second place is Schnipper’s, which also has great food and service and more ample seating but it’s several blocks away. – Kathy Sampey, Vice President
Hmm I’ve never had a burger at Shake Shack or Schnippers so my vote for our area would be New York Burger & Co. – Yana Berliner, Office Administrator
