Killjoy.

130 restaurants, one disgruntled with an as yet unproven claim worker. What’s your point? That no one should eat there? What, are you the guy’s cousin?

Read this instead.

Too much fast food in America. No wonder people so fat. Need to eat less fried meat and more vegetables for healthy diet.

Most fast food places do not care about good nutrition.

I -never- eat at fast food places, but, I have to ask you, "what is your alternative"? Because, if you are going to eat at a fast food place, Shake Shack might be better for you, and, definitely is better for the environment, than, say McDonald's or Burger King.

IOW, "read this first":

As I said, I avoid fast food. And that goes double for fast food hamburgers.

But:

"A new report assigned “failing grades” to 22 of the 25 largest burger chains in the U.S. over their policies on antibiotics use in the production of the beef they serve. The report was co-authored by researchers from a range of public-interest organizations including U.S. PIRG, Consumer Reports and the Natural Resources Defense Council, among others.

"Only two of the restaurants analyzed — Shake Shack SHAK, +0.96% and BurgerFi — received “A” grades. Both only serve beef raised without antibiotics. Only Shake Shack and Wendy’s made third-party independent auditing reports public regarding antibiotics use among their producers. "

Thank you, Elena, for a great update on a fast changing, ultra-competitive (and tricky) Silicon Valley Restaurant Industry. Many of us are not afraid to "grab a burger" once in a while, and Stanford Mall is the perfect place for Shake Shack. But .... those who do not like that cuisine should not impose their values on others. Hope you guys have a great 2019!

Re Wu Shen's assertion: "Too much fast food in America. No wonder people so fat. Need to eat less fried meat and more vegetables for healthy diet."

Actually, it's all the carbs, butter, cream, dairy, fried foods, alcohol, and sweets of the American diet that are leading to obesity. If everyone would drink just water, that would help tremendously. Alcohol and sugary drinks are a huge culprit in calorie consumption.

Also to blame is some of the American parenting: "No dessert until you eat your food" . . . desserts after every dinner. "You get a candy for being good" . . . raising them to desire candy. And the partying culture of alcohol consumption. Look at the snack aisle and it's mostly carbohydrates, which all turn into sugar, then into calories.

In addition, the massive overeating of Americans is to blame. Everyone overeats, but the severe overeating and overdrinking leads to obesity.

Cut back on bread, pasta, carbs, and drink water only and it's a guaranteed weight loss. But remember to eat meat for its protein to help stay full.

IOW, at Shake Shack, skip the shakes (and fries), stick to the burgers, and drink water? Good idea, but, it does make the name Shake Shack seem odd.

No, Anon, I'm talking about the general everyday eating. Gotta have the Shake Shack burger with fries and shake! Just don't eat a huge plate of Alfredo sauce pasta at the next meal! Moderate.
