The Astros’ season may not have had the most exciting of endings this year, but you’re going to be pumped for 2017’s season opener thanks to the arrival of two white-hot dining concepts to Minute Maid Park.

Announced via release, you’ll soon be able to enjoy Shake Shack and Torchy’s Tacos as you watch the game. Both Shake Shack and Torchy’s will head to the newly-renovated center field area of the stadium, set to make their debuts in time for next year’s season opener.

"Our partnerships with Torchy's Tacos and Shake Shack are highlights of the new center field area," said Astros spokesman Reid Ryan in a statement. "Torchy's Tacos brings not only great food, but a local, Texas flavor to the ballpark. And Shake Shack's reputation for fresh, high-quality food precedes them. We look forward to offering these two fantastic concession options to our fans in 2017."

As far as where each restaurant will be located, Torchy’s will set up shop on the mezzanine level of the center field area, and Shake Shack will take up prime real estate on the main concourse.

You’ll have to wait until next season to score these most-excellent concessions, but fortunately, you can always hit the Galleria Shake Shack or your favorite Torchy’s outpost in the meantime.
