Shake Shack on the Plaza is disgusting. They killed their brand when they started making that gross, overpriced food. I wouldn’t feed it to my dog. Now, they’ve taken money from the government meant for small business but are returning it because the people who needed it most weren’t served. That move is the epitome of BIG business. Growing a conscience after the fact won’t help.
