In honor of Shake Shack's 10th anniversary, lauded chef David Chang created the "Shrimp Stack" burger, which is being sold at the chain's original Madison Square Park location today:
Momofuku chef and owner David Chang's "Shrimp Stack" burger has got, in addition to a patty of the chainlet's blend, a "smoked and griddled shrimp patty," Momofuku Hozon Sauce, Bibb lettuce, pickled onion, and quick-salted cucumber.
Chang's special-edition burger is so popular that it's created the longest line in Shake Shack history, drawing a phalanx of eager customers to Madison Square Park. They even have a special camera to monitor it all.
This is how real it is out there:

As for Chang, well, he's satisfied.
Trophies. Oh yeah, if you think you're getting one of Chang's burgers today, you'll be sadly disappointed.
@gregzzy about 500 left but if you're not in line now, there isn't a high chance we'll have any left. Sorry, friend!— SHAKE SHACK (@shakeshack) June 10, 2014
Fortunately, Shake Shack has more special treats planned through Friday. The celebration ain't over yet.
