It's time to get in line: The long-awaited Shake Shack in The Domain finally has an opening date. Starting August 26, North Austinites can chow down on Shake Shack's all-natural burgers and signature shakes.
In addition to the New York-based chain's signature offerings, the Domain spot will be serve up Austin-only dishes. On the menu you'll find exclusive items like the Lockhart Link Burger (a burger with Kreuz Market jalapeño cheese sausage), the Cold Shot (a vanilla and chocolate frozen custard named after the Stevie Ray Vaughan song), and the Uchi-koncrete (vanilla frozen custard with Uchi's miso hazelnut blondie and huckleberry jam).
Austin influence has seeped into the beverage selections as well. Shake Shack fans can order a cold brew from local favorites such as Hops & Grain, Independence, Real Ale and Austin Eastciders. "We realized there wasn't an unbreakable rule that locations couldn't be a little different and feel more local," Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer told CultureMap earlier this year.
