Don't be fooled by its shabby appearance. When Danny Meyer was developing the Shake Shack menu, he turned to this 1980s strip-mall relic for frankfurter inspiration. And these char-grilled jobs remain Meyer's favorite bun-pocketed specimens outside New York. During weekdays, the Wieners Circle is a lunch-only operation, but on weekends, when it stays open 'til 5 a.m., it's a hub for late-night revelers.
