Burger Month #3: The Burger Shack

2011 N. 1st Ave
Whitehall, PA 18052
Hours:  Mon-Sat 10:30-9:00 PM  
Closed Sundays

This week’s feature is an Evans’ Eats ideal….encompasses the look and feel of a simple, practical “hole-in-the-wall” restaurant with a modern, clean, fresh business and product.  Self-described as the “valley’s newest burger concept,” this relatively new establishment (July, 2010) offers their signature stuffed burger, uniquely offering its ingredients stuffed within the beef!  In addition, they use an all-natural 94% lean ground beef, hormone-free, and “raised on open pastures”, thus using the slogan: 

 Fresh.  Simple.  Honest.   

So, enjoy your guilt-free burger with this unique twist!  We both tried one of their featured burgers, “The Shabby”—stuffed with mushrooms and onions, topped with the Shack BBQ Sauce and more mushrooms & onions.    For those who want to keep it simple, they do offer a classic hamburger, but hopefully you’ll be tempted by some of their unique offerings…such as The Flophouse—sliced pork roll, grilled pineapple, fresh ground beef patty, topped with The Shack BBQ sauce.  All burgers include boardwalk fries and free burger toppings:  lettuce, tomato, raw onions, ketchup, mustard, and mayo.  Substitutions at an extra charge are cheese fries, gravy fries, sweet potato fries, shack fries (chili, cheddar cheese, and bacon pieces , jambalaya or pierogies.    

Their menu is generous in burger alternatives from veggie burgers to a wide variety of shack dogs served on a steak roll, jambalaya, pulled pork or turkey sandwich, chicken sandwiches and wraps and salads and finally, a few dessert items for a sweet ending!   Menu items range from $3.99-7.49.  Our meal cost $16 for 2 stuffed burgers with fries   and 1 large fountain drink.

If you are in the Whitehall area, be sure to visit the friendly owners with a serious product.  It’s a refreshing alternative for a local independent burger joint!
