Dallas’ First Shake Shack is coming to the Crescent (and not to Frisco, as was first reported, thank sweet Cheeseburger Jesus). I got a little #VIPeek action this afternoon, so here’s what you should be most excited about…
As is the Shake Shack way, every city gets its own special menu items. It’s cute.
Pictured above, in between the Chick’n Shack and the ShackBurger, is one of our Dallas specialties, the Link Burger. It features a jalapeño cheese sausage link from Pecan Lodge (which you might have heard of if you’re not dead or something), on top of a cheeseburger. People are raving. But honestly, I’m more excited to taste our Dallas-specific concretes, which feature Dude Sweet Chocolate and Emporium Pies PIE. Because I am a cheeseburger purist and I know ShakeShack’s are the shit. Now it’s time to have a milkshake that brings all the cowboys to the yard. Hell yeah!
I mean, you can tell just by looking at it that it’s gonna be good. Buttermilk herb mayo? All of it. Pickles that look like those?? Yes please! And look at that crisped-up chicken breast! Perfection.
All the fixin’s on a Vienna all-beef dog.
This type of thing is my first Shake Shack love and I don’t think anything can beat it. The potato bun, Shack sauce, crisp veggies, thick-cut pickle and a double helping of classic cheeseburger awesomeness.
Three words: Crinkle. Cut. Fries.
See you guys at the Shack. It’s going to be a beautiful thing.
