Beloved NYC burger chain Shake Shack officially opens its doors in Montrose this week.

The fast food giant will debut at 1002 Westheimer Road in a 3,600-square-foot space that features a patio and mural art by Michael Rodriguez. The brand touts eco-friendly construction, and the tabletops at this location are made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes while chairs and booths are also constructed from sustainable materials. This is the brand’s fourth Houston outpost, joining locations in the Galleria area, Rice Village, and Minute Maid Park.

In addition to its regular menu of antibiotic and hormone-free burgers, chicken sandwiches and hot dogs and crinkle cut fries, local purveyor Fluff Bake Bar will provide sweets for the frequently-rotating “Pie Oh My” concrete, made with vanilla custard and a slice of Fluff’s seasonal pie. The “Caramel Aficiona-dough” will be made with the bakery’s “Couch Potato” cookie dough, and a “24 Carrot Magic” concrete will mix vanilla custard, UB Preserv’s carrot cake, sweetened condensed milk, and Blacksmith coffee grounds. The menu will also feature the Lockhart link cheeseburger, a Texas-only option topped with griddled Kreuz Market jalapeno cheese sausage link, pickles, and ShackSauce.

Local brews from Karbach Brewing Company, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Back Pew Brewing, and Spoetzl Brewery plus Shake Shack’s exclusive Brooklyn Brewery ShackMeister Ale will be on tap. Wine lovers can enjoy the company’s own red and white varieties.

Shake Shack officially opens on Thursday, December 20 and will operate Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
