OMFG Shake Shack is Finally Coming to DFW

Praise the burger gods.

At long last, the Metroplex will get a taste of the fast-food burgers that New Yorkers — and more recently, Austinites — hold so dearly: Shake Shack is headed to Plano, reports the Dallas Morning News. Danny Meyer's Manhattan-born sensation will open its first North Texas location at the upcoming Legacy West development where Toyota is moving its offices.

It's long been rumored that the chain would eventually make its way to Dallas. No timeline for the Shack opening has been given just yet, but it will certainly be worth the wait — local critics may be predicting an end to the current burger boom, but Shake Shack's delicious, high-quality food (the crinkle fries! those potato rolls!) at low prices all but ensures it'll find success here in North Texas; just ask Wall Street.

Also in the works for Legacy West: a three-story, "one-of-a-kind food hall building with a market area [and] specialty food vendors," not one but three restaurants from Alberto Lombardi (existing concepts Toulouse, Taverna, and Bistro 31), and another True Food Kitchen. Site plans obtained by Eater Dallas also indicate new locations for Eddie V's, Velvet Taco, Oishii, and Sprinkles Cupcakes. The development will also include plenty of higher-end retail, hundreds of apartments, and a Renaissance Hotel.
