What I Ate: Shake Shack Marin

Custard Concretes, Crinkle Cut Fries and Burgers from the Shake Shack Marin

The wait is over! Shake Shack at Marin Country Mart in Larkspur is open!

and if you are anything like me you are ready to grub on a ShackBurger and come crispy crinkle cut fries. I hit up Shake Shack Marin this week and the drive from San Francisco to Larkspur is short and well worth it to get your Shake Shack fix.

In addition to their classic menu, Shake Shack has created a unique selection of menu items exclusive to Marin including the Bay Area-exclusive Golden State Double, a Richards Grassfed Beef double cheddar cheeseburger topped with pickles and smoked garlic aioli (center burger in the top photo).
For dessert, Shake Shack will be spinning frozen custard concretes in collaboration with local purveyors Pie Dreams and Dandelion Chocolate. They were already sold out of the chocolate option when I was there, but I got down with the Pie Dreams concrete.

How do you get there?


I drove and it took less than 20 minutes to get there on a Tuesday afternoon. There is plenty of parking in the Marin Country Mart. I seem to always find parking near the SoulCycle. No car, no problem. Jump on the ferry to Larkspur, cross the street and you are at Shake Shack Marin.

Start with a ShackBurger (especially if it is your first visit), crinkle cut fries, Chick’n Bites, and a concrete. Round two go for a Chick’n Shack and cheese fries.San Francisco blogger KatWalkSF visits the newly opened Shake Shack Marin.
