Shake Shack’s plan to rapidly cover Texas with patties and crispy crinkle-cut fries continues this week with the opening of a rustic-looking location in the historic Stockyards district.
The new Fort Worth burger bar is scheduled to arrive on Sunday, January 26 at 11 a.m. at 122 E. Exchange Avenue. The first 100 people in line will receive custom Shake Shack swag (including leather goods).
This isn’t your everyday Shake Shack. The 3,100-square-foot space honors its former life as a working stable, letting its original horse stalls remain visible inside the new fast-casual operation.
The cult phenomenon, which boasts hundreds of locations around the globe and 18 in Texas, is known for its lineup of 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, griddled flat-top dogs, and frozen custards.
For Texas diners only, there’s a Link Burger topped with Pecan Lodge sausage. New frozen custard concrete options include the S’Mores and a Pie Oh My — packed with chunks of Four & Twenty Blackbirds seasonal pie; 5 percent of its sales from the latter will be donated to Alliance For Children.
The beer list shows love for local makers like Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Community Beer Company, Four Corner Brewing Co. and Lone Star Beer, along with Shake Shack’s exclusive Brooklyn Brewery ShackMeister Ale and wines.
Equestrian-themed adds from Austin-based Michael Hsu Office Of Architecture include a stone wall and industrial blackened steel elements. The eco-friendly chain also installed table tops constructed from salvaged walnut tables.
