The Burger Shack's menu bends under the weight of eats such as never-frozen [burgers](http://gr.pn/vPwmue) and hand-dipped shakes, all crafted daily from fresh ingredients. A pair of [Shack cheeseburgers](http://bit.ly/rs0eWa) greets dining duos with two 1/3-pound, seasoned Angus beef patties formed from humanely raised meat. Each protein-packed sandwich comes crowned with a choice of accouterments, such as a slice of lettuce, tomato, and purple onion, and is held together by white or wheat buns baked locally and butter-toasted with an imprint of _The Iliad_. A serving of [Shack fries](http://gr.pn/rWSin3) must endure a tedious process of being hand-sliced from Idaho russet potatoes, blanch fried, and refrigerated before embarking on quests to the inner caverns of diners' stomachs. Round out the old-fashioned diner meal with 20-ounce bubbly fountain drinks such as Dr. Pepper, or crack open a bottle of locally brewed St. Arnold's root beer served in an authentic 1950s Mr. Potato Head.
The Burger Shack
Those who say things aren't the way they were back in the good old days certainly haven't had a burger and fries from The Burger Shack. The welcoming spot echoes the low-key, homey feel of those iconic burger joints past. The walkup counter and pennant-strewn dining room act as a backdrop for a deliciously nostalgic menu of juicy Angus burgers and Blue Bell shakes. The cooks lovingly shape each third-pound grilled-to-order burger using beef that’s never seen a freezer or even received Valentines from a snowflake. Toppings for the juicy sizzlers can include Wisconsin cheddar, Hass avocados, or crispy bacon. The shack's staff members also hand make addictive sides such as curly fries and hand-dipped shakes.
