New York burger chain Shake Shack continues its DFW expansion with a new location confirmed to open in Southlake. According to a release, the restaurant will be located in Southlake Town Square at 125 Central Ave. and is slated to open in late 2018.

Shake Shack is the modern-day burger stand with Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, flat-top Vienna beef dogs, frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer, and wine.

The release confirms what Southlake Town Square has been hinting at since May, even to the extent of listing the restaurant as a done deal on its website.

But there is still nothing more fulfilling than getting the official word from the Shake Shack team themselves.

The menu will feature all the Shack classics, including the ShackBurger, crinkle-cut fries, and milkshakes, plus a selection of frozen custard concretes in collaboration with local food purveyors.

The Shack will feature an outdoor patio and ample seating for guests. Shake Shack has a commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, and so the Southlake Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials.

Booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and table tops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes.

It will also feature an installation from a local artist.

There are currently three Shake Shack locations in the Dallas area, in Uptown, North Dallas, and Plano.

And three more were already in the works: at DFW Airport, Irving, and the Stockyards District in Fort Worth.

It would seem there are few cities left for Shake Shack to colonize. Well, unless you consider Mansfield. They could open a location there. Or Burleson — lot of openings in Burleson these days. or Euless. Euless is so hot right now.
