Looks like downtown Houston office workers won't have to wait for baseball season to get their Shake Shack fix. The New York-based global burger chain announced that it will open a new location at 712 Main St., confirming rumors first reported last week by Swamplot.
Previously a Brown Bag Deli, the new location will be Houston's fourth full-time Shake Shack, joining locations in the Galleria, Rice Village, and Montrose. Timing of the building and permitting process can always be a bit uncertain, but the company expects the restaurant to open this summer.
Started as a hamburger stand in New York City's Madison Square Park, Shake Shack has grown into a certified global phenomenon. The company's iconic ShackBurger starts with premium beef from celebrated butcher Pat LaFrieda that's "smashed" on a griddle, topped with mayonnaise-based ShackSauce, and served on a potato bun. Hand-spun shakes and signature frozen custards round out the experience.
Houston locations also feature the Texas-exclusive Lockhart Link burger, made with jalapeño-cheese sausage sourced from legendary Texas barbecue joint Kreuz Market, and desserts that feature ingredients sourced from local restaurants such as Fluff Bake Bar and UB Preserve.
