Review: Shake Shack - Chick'n Shack Sandwich

Shake Shack's Chick'n Shack Sandwich features a crispy chicken breast filet, lettuce, pickles, and buttermilk herb mayo on a "non-GMO" potato bun.

The sandwich goes for $6.29.

A bit of the batter on my chicken fell off with a loud thock onto the metal tray. Sure enough, the batter was fairly thick but surprisingly light, and yes, wonderfully crunchy. There's a light seasoned flavor to it.

Like the burger chain's signature burger, the Chick'n Shack was rather narrow in circumference but tall in construction. It's similar in size to a Big Mac but with a little less bun and much more meat/poultry. The chicken was moist, thick, and meaty.

The mayo was extra creamy with a definite note of dill. There was a little more than I'd prefer but I liked the flavor.

The lettuce was fresh and relatively crisp. The pickles appeared to be house-made. They were just lightly pickled and cut thick for a nice crunch.

The bun was extra soft and squishy with an even amount of toasting. Still, the lettuce, pickles, and crispy shell provided enough crunch to make up for it.

Overall, Shake Shack's Chick'n Shack Sandwich was even better than their burger in my book. The fried chicken filet was excellent and the dill mayo worked well with it.
