New York burger chain Shake Shack is about to open two new locations in Dallas-Fort Worth, and just in time for Christmas.

The chain will open locations in Southlake and Las Colinas on Sunday, December 23 at 11 am.

Southlake is a 3,166-square-foot store at 125 Central Ave., and will feature an outdoor patio and ample seating for guests. The Shack will offer their classic menu along with a unique selection of frozen custard concretes in collaboration with Emporium Pies.

Las Colinas is a 3,638-square-foot store at 7170 N. State Highway 161, and it, too, will feature an outdoor patio and ample seating for guests. You need the ample seating. They'll offer their classic menu along with a unique selection of frozen custard concretes in collaboration with local purveyors Emporium Pies and Sugar Ray's Bakeshop.

Shake Shack is noted for its burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and frozen custard. It also serves hot dogs, beer, and wine.

The chain made its debut in the area in Dallas' Uptown in August 2016. A location opened in Plano in September 2017, and in Dallas' Preston Royal area one month later.

There's also a location coming to Fort Worth, in what is surely the most obvious location in town: the Stockyards, one of a host of big improvements planned for the Stockyards' Exchange Avenue that also include a new hotel and renovation of the historic horse and mule barns.

Both Southlake and Las Colinas will make donations from opening day to local charities including Kidd's Kids in Las Colinas and Children's Medical Center Dallas in Southlake.

And to ramp up the fake frenzy, the first 100 people in line at both locations get a free custom Shake Shack holiday ornament.
