Shake Shack will open its second Central Florida location on Wednesday, August 19th at Orlando’s I-Drive 360 complex. Mayor Teresa Jacobs will be on hand for the ribbon cutting at 11am.
In addition to all of the classic Shake Shack menu items, like burgers (100% all-natural, antibiotic-free), hot dogs, fries, and frozen custard, the I-Drive Shake Shack will feature two-location specific frozen custard concretes for customers to enjoy:
Shake Shack is about to get its second Central Florida location as the eatery announces plans for an I-Drive location.
The New York-based company made the announcement this week that they have signed a lease for space at the upcoming I-Drive 360 complex, next to the recently opened Outback Steakhouse, Carrabba’s, and Yard House.
This location, along International Drive’s tourist corridor and with close proximity to the Orange County Convention Center, should bode well for its success.
Shake Shack is a burger joint with a cult following, and in NYC, lines can be up to an hour long just to get in. But thankfully, you don’t have to deal with NYC lines because Shake Shack now has an Orlando location in Winter Park.
Shake Shack’s first Central Florida location opens today, July 30, but we got to sample some of its delicious grub a day early, and here’s what we can tell you.
1. Shake Shack has a reputation for incredible burgers, and it turns out the hype is for real. They use 100% antibiotic-free angus beef in all but one of their burger options.
2. They keep the menu simple, with three beef burger options: plain hamburger, their signature ShackBurger (a cheeseburger topped with lettuce, tomato, and ShackSauce), and the SmokeShack (the ShackBurger with additional toppings of a chopped cherry pepper and applewood smoked bacon), which is my personal favorite.
Shake Shack, one of NYC’s most famous burger chains is heading to Orlando and will open their first location in Winter Park on July 30.
The ShackBurger is their version of a cheeseburger, and is insanely popular with their customers. You can get it as a single or double, or upgrade to the SmokeShack, which adds bacon and a chopped cherry pepper. There is also a vegetarian ‘ShroomBurger with a crisp-fried portobello instead of meat, and several hot dog options, too.
In addition to their burgers, Shake Shack is also known for its frozen custard shakes, which are hand-spun daily. Signature flavors include the Fair Shake, an icy coffee flavored treat that is also made with certified 100 percent organic Arabica fair-trade beans. This location will also serve beer brewed especially for the eatery, and wine, as well.
Shake Shack is located at the intersection of Morse Blvd. and US Highway 17-92, which is also home to the new Trader Joe’s. So while the food will be a big draw, expect more parking headaches trying to get into the restaurant.
