National fast-food burger chain Shake Shack recently opened its first Staten Island location at 2655 Richmond Ave in the Staten Island Mall. The burger joint also serves chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, milkshakes and frozen custard.

The Staten Island Shake Shack's current rating of 3.5 stars out of 29 reviews on Yelp indicates the newcomer is finding its way, but it's still early days.

"Food is exactly how it is at other locations, quality burgers and fries but you're paying the NYC-premium for them," Yelper Ben S. wrote on July 16. "Service was more pleasant than at others I've been to, but the wait time was just as long ... The patio outside is awesome and has plenty of seating."

"Once 12 hit, the line was out the door," Lyndsay V. noted of the new location's crowded feel. "The food itself was very good. The burgers are juicy, the fries are not over salted and the shake (got the marshmallow chocolate chip) was amazing!"

Shake Shack is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Sunday.
