New York City burger chain Shake Shack will continue to take over Houston with a new outpost planned for Downtown.

The chain’s newest Houston outpost is set to open at 702 Main Street in a 3,242 square foot space that includes an outdoor patio, according to a press release. That makes four Shake Shacks in Houston — the first, which debuted at the Galleria in 2016, a second that followed at Rice Village in early 2018, and the recently-opened Montrose location, which made its debut in December.

For those who are somehow unfamiliar with Shake Shack, the restaurant founded by Danny Meyer is known for its simple “Shackburgers” and crinkle-cut fries, which can be topped with cheese sauce and bacon. As with all other locations, the Downtown Houston Shake Shack will partner with local purveyors like Fluff Bake Bar for slices of pie to mix in their frozen concretes, and it’s likely that the Texas-only Lockhart link burger will also be on the menu.

No opening date for Shake Shack’s Downtown location has been set just yet, but expect for it to arrive sometime in the summer.
