New Restaurant Opening: Shake Shack South Lamar

It’s a good day to be an Austinite. The 2015 ACL lineup was announced this morning and today, Shake Shack on South Lamar opens at 11 am!

Burger monsters come one, come all. The wait is over, you can finally get your Shake Shack fix. They’re known for their burgers, crinkle fries and shakes, last night I put them to the test and they didn’t disappoint. They have local beers from Hops & Grain, Independence Brewing Co., Real Ale Brewing, Karbach Brewing Co. and Austin Eastciders.

Their dessert menu also pays respects to Austin with the Uchi-concerte made with Uchi and Uchiko miso hazelnut blondie and huckleberry jam. The Cold Shot, made with vanilla and chocolate custard, brown sugar caramel sauce, chocolate toffee, and malt powder is named after a song by singer, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Shake Shack also features a pet menu that offers pooch-inis and dog biscuits. 5% of of Uchi-concrete sales will be donated to Austin Pets Alive.

North Austinites, fear not, a Domain location is set to open later this summer.
