Josh and I have been fans of Snack Shack since college! When we were in our senior year, a quarter pounder with cheese is sold at 70 pesos, but after 3 years, it's now at 90 pesos. Honestly, it's still a steal! 128525

When they first opened a couple of years ago in Area 2, they sometimes get sold out as early as lunch time. I guess the hype isn't like that anymore now, as we casually strolled in at 1PM last Saturday and still got our burger fix. It's the same great burger I remembered: juicy patty, soft bun, crisp veggies, and a slice of cheese. The taste and texture of the patty remained the same, though I noticed that it became slightly thinner than how I remembered it to be. 128586 For people with huge appetites, you may opt to get their half pounder instead, and you'll still spend less than 200 bucks. 128525

They now serve fries but I didn't try it (I don't remember seeing this on their menu before), because whenever I eat here, I ALWAYS order the fries from a stall somewhere along Area 2. Thick-cut, flavored, and comes with a free dip. All that for just 75 pesos. I forgot the name of the stall though. HEHE. 127839 (I included the photo for your reference!)

While you're waiting for them to prepare your burger, you may also opt to visit Lutong Bahay (UP students and alumni fondly call this LB) also along Area 2. LB serves thr BEST and most sulit fruit shakes ever! Each order is priced at around Php 75, and first timers always get surprised at how they're served with a 16oz cup AND a 12oz cup. 128513

Snack Shack is arguably the best place to get your burger fix without breaking the bank -- you'll have enough cash to buy yourself a drink and side dish. Oh, and they have seats and tables now, too! 128156 Do drop by when you're in the area!

I left the group with a broken heart since i have errands to run.  CMA was famished and he is having burger cravings for the past couple of days.  Snack Shack is the nearest,  he initially wanted Lazy B but he said he will be cranky in a few minutes. 

Didn't know that our fave burger joint has branches in QC.  He got the half pounder and we patiently waited while they flame grill the burger.  I inadvertently listened to the conversation of the group of kids while waiting for the food.  Nuclear physics!  My nose bleed.  Gotta hand it to the UP kids!

Snack Shack is still king when it comes to flame grilled burgers.  The burger patty is juicy and oozing with beefy goodness.  If they update the bread to brioche,  the other burger joints might start sweating bullets.  Uhmmm...wait, i take  it back... They should keep it as it is,  staying true to their simple,  guerilla flame grilled burgers adds to their charm. 

Overall,  Snack Shack is the rebel of the burger scene.

Was craving for a burger when my lab mate reminded me that Snack Shack is just a phone call away! So I called and ordered one quarter pounder with extra cheese, rode a Toki Jeep from our office and got my burger-- no waiting since I called in advance (they make the patty fresh as you order). Absolutely my favorite no fuss burger 127828127828127828127828127828 may free ~hugz~ pa if you want 128514

PS And while walking I saw some students holding a lemonade..and curious (also thirst because so hotttt) I ordered one lemonade at Longga Republik also in Area 2. I say they are perfect partners as the lemonade cleanses that beefy taste in your mouth 127819

So yes, it was a good lunch 128523128523128523128523128523

It has been a while since I last ate here. My sister and nephew were craving for this so I went with them and had my dog tag along 128522128054

The quarter pounder (pictured) is a simple burger with lettuce, tomato, mustard, onion. The yumminess comes from the flame-grilled pattie. YUMMY!!!

The place itself is not really a place to dine at, more of a takeout joint so don't expect to stay long. There are other standa next to it so if you want some buko shake, there's a kiosk for that.

I am always in constant search for that perfect burger place. It led me to Snack Shack, a literal shack that sells burgers and other tidbits of food.

The branch I bisited had their shack cooking area and two benches outside. You could order then and there or actually text them in advanced to just pick up your order, which is pretty nifty!

The burger was large and meaty, not to mention mouthwatering! I have to say that the size alone was worth the price. I love how juicy and tender the meat is, perfectly captured between two firm buns (that's what she said haha!). Though I do commend the cook for surpassing my expectations.

I would actually suggest just getting take out instead of eating at their branches because they get jam packed really easily. Nonetheless, I claim this as a success towards my journey to finding a perfect burger place!

My goodness. I have never tried a burger that had so much beef, the bread was nowhere to be found. Ever since college, this has been my favorite joint and I think there's no need for too much explanation. Smoky, char-grilled, comfort. There's no bad day a good half-pounder can't solve 128523128076🏼128077🏼

Had lunch at one of the best burger places in Metro Manila! You should really get the Half Pound Burger (PHP135) and add some barbecue sauce (PHP20)! It's so juicy and tasty! 128523

Half pound patty? Check.
Grilled? Check.
Tlc? Check.
Cheap? Check.

Great tasting burger doesn't have to be expensive. Only 135php for a half pound. Just make sure to pre-order before dropping by to avoid long queue.

Considering how great their burgers taste and how inexpensive they are, the long wait is almost always worth it :D Only problem here though is that there are a ton of flies and stray cats in the area.

I don't have a picture of it because I always buy here when I'm hungry 128514128514128514 Oh well, their quarter pound burger is one of my favorite burgers because of its grilled patty. I like their seasoning of it and of course, the fact that they cook their patties on the spot. BUT, I don't like their buns. 128078 It's just plain tinapay that you can buy in the bakery for only PHP10.

p.s. The place is not ideal for dine-in and it's better to order thru text before going there since the place have bangaws in the area, considering that the place is an open store.
