The Tysons Corner Plaza has opened to the public for a while now but I have only been there twice. The 2nd time was last night; the evening before  school starts today, Tuesday, 09-02-2014.

My wife and I went to Tysons’ to jog and have something to eat. But we decided to try Shake Shack’s burgers first. Shake Shack is located right on the Plaza next to the entrance. It was busy when we got there around 7:30 pm and there were a lot of small kids running around. It also has an open area adjacent to the restaurant for kids to play. The Plaza is an open space area for mall shoppers, residents of the luxury apartment complex and office workers of the new Hyatt tower. They two high-rise buildings will be open in late 2014 or early 2015. The Plaza is very nice and is designed for people to relax, sit around, play and watch the world goes by.




Shake Shack’s burgers are tastier than 5 Guys’ burgers and way better than McDonald’s or Burger King’s.


But Shake Shack’s burgers are much saltier, extremely greasy, very small in size and much more expensive than its competitors’. They probably have to charge you an arm and a leg because they are paying big bucks for the space and for the prime location on the Plaza.

I also believe that Shake Shack makes most of its profits from shacks and frozen treats because a shack is $5 and a small (yes, when they say small, they mean small) frozen is $3.25. The fries were nothing to brag about. I rather like to have 5 Guys’ fries even though we can only finish about half of a regular order.


Go give it a try if you must. I don’t think it’s the only one in northern VA. This is the first time we’ve been here and it is likely our last.
