Status: Opens today at 11 a.m.
Shake Shack opens today at 11 a.m. at 2000 Sansom Street, bringing restaurateur Danny Meyers' beloved franchise to Philly for the first time. Philly has become a big burger town, and the anticipation for this outpost has fans ratcheted up like never before. For those folks not initiated into the Shake Shack experience, be prepared to stand in a long line for some quick bites that are completely worth it.
This new Shake Shack will be the debut of the SmokeShack Burger, which also is the first time bacon has been part of the SS experience. Besides burgers and hot dogs, Shake Shack is known for shakes, of course, and Concretes, which are specialty desserts made from blended custard and sweet treats. The Philly versions feature crushed-up Termini Bros. cannolli shells, soft pretzels, and La Colombe coffee beans. For complete menu details and some shots of the interior, check out yesterday's post for all your Shake Shack needs.
