Last week, Shack Shack opened up a new Texan location located on South Lamar. It’s Shake Shack’s 67th location, from humble beginnings in Madison Square Park to Austin.
The location boasts both inside and outdoor seating, dogs are welcome on the patio. We saw a fellow Texas pup waiting in line with us.
Some of the walls inside were striped with moss and wood planks. Dangling from the ceiling were white orbs, some lit up and some filled with succulents. The restaurant was beautiful and very clean.
The open kitchen was a focal point of the restaurant. The smell was so tempting, it was hard to wait!
Shake Shack’s main menu items consists of burgers and variations of ice cream. There are vegetarian options available. Their menu even has a special “Woof” section only for four legged friends.
After ordering our burgers, we sat down at one of the communal tables and began to eat. Shake Shack’s burgers are made with 100% Angus beef and no hormones or antibiotics.
Keeping with the dog-friendliness, the Austin Shack donates five percent of all sales from the “Uchi-koncrete” to Austin Pets Alive.
The restaurant is filled with subtle and blunt Texan influences and nuances, such as the Lockhart Link burger, made with jalapeño cheddar sausage from close by Lockhart’s Kreuz Market.
We loved our trip to the new Austin Shake Shack and would go again (maybe when the lines gets a little shorter).
