Shake Shack Announces Plans to Open I-Drive Location in Orlando

Shake Shack mealShake 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.

It was less than a month ago that Shake Shack opened their first Central Florida location in Winter Park, next to Trader Joe’s. We had a chance to try it’s delicious burgers, hot dogs, and frozen custard, and I don’t think there was a single thing I didn’t enjoy (though if you like heat, go for the SmokeShack burger).

No word as to when the I-Drive 360 location will be open, but as soon as we get a date, we will definitely let you know.

Have you had a chance to try Shake Shack yet? What do you think of their offerings?

Out and About: 10 Things You Should Know About Shake Shack Winter Park

Shake Shack Winter Park

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.

Shake Shack ShackBurger and Cheese Fries


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.
