Brooklynites are Guinea pigs for Shake Shack’s New Sandwich
Shake Shack’s new “Griddled Chick’n Club” sandwich is being tested in Brooklyn locations before it is launched nationwide on January 26. But is it any good? Here’s everything you need to know.

Shake Shack is using its Brooklyn patrons as guinea pigs for their new grilled chicken sandwich. The “Griddled Chick’n Club” is a designed to be a healthier option among a calorie-packed menu filled with cheese fries, double cheeseburgers, and hot dogs.

The new sandwich is made with an all-natural cage-free chicken breast, marinated and topped with Niman Ranch applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, Roma tomato and Shack-made buttermilk herb mayo on a potato bun.

Shake Shack aren’t strangers to a delicious chicken sandwich. The Chick’n Shack fried-chicken sandwich, that launched debuted in 2015, became a fast favorite among fans of the chain. It was so popular it underwent some limited variations like “Salt ‘n Pepper Honey” and “hot chicken”.

That’s all well and good… but should you make the effort to try one? Eater was less than impressed, and Business Insider says “it’s not terrible, but it doesn’t sit right.” Not everyone was down on the sandwich though:

The  “Griddled Chick’n Club” will be launched for a limited time nationally on January 26, excluding the chains airport and stadium locations.
