Harlem Shake’s menu offers diners a taste of what it would have been like to set up shop in the restaurant 50+ years ago by taking a playful approach to classic burgers and fries. Set amid the clean yet well-worn ambiance, guests tuck into the signature Harlem Classics – two 2-ounce custom blend Pat la Frieda beef patties ground fresh daily and griddled smashed-style for crisp browning and served on a toasted Martin’s Potato Roll with house-made condiments. Specialties include the Pigskin Classic topped with crisp fried pork rinds and the Jerk Fry Burger topped with jerk-seasoned, triple-cooked fries and smoked jerk mayo, as well as juicy turkey burgers and house-made vegan burgers.
Old-school, handcrafted milkshakes dominate the drink program at Harlem Shake with straightforward flavors like Chocolate and Red Velvet thoughtfully made with whole, all-natural ingredients. The lineup of shakes highlights local products like ice cream from Blue Marble, organic milk from New York Fresh Milk and peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co., as well as seasonal fruit and hand-spun additions like house-made salted caramel sauce and malt.
Rounding out the menu are New York-style all-beef hot dogs with far-flung flavors from Texas and Mexico, chicken sandwiches, grilled cheeses/melts and creative kale and legume salads, as well as fries hand cut from Kennebec or sweet potatoes and double-fried in beef tallow (also available in vegetable oil for a vegetarian/vegan option). A rotating selection of vintage real sugar sodas and regional specialty sodas (Cheerwine Cherry Soda, Vernor’s Detroit Ginger, Foxson Park Birch Beer), and a selection of draft beers and house wines are also available.
