Shake Shack’s all-beef patties and crinkle-cut fries will finally be available in The Woodlands starting tomorrow.
The beloved burger joint’s first suburban Houston outpost will open inside the courtyard area of The Woodlands Mall at 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 19. It’ll be the fifth location in the Houston area, joining restaurants in Downtown, The Galleria, Montrose, Rice Village, and a kiosk inside Minute Maid Park.
Diners can expect Shake Shack’s juicy cheeseburgers, flat-top Vienna beef hot dogs and hot chicken sandwiches, as well as some seasonal treats, like the Candy Cane Marshmallow Shake, Christmas Cookie Shake, and Karbach Brewing’s Yule Shoot Your Eye Out Christmas ale. Shake Shack’s Houston-area restaurants also serve a Lockhart Link Burger, topped with a link of Kreuz Market jalapeno-cheese sausage.
The restaurant, which was first founding in 2011 as a hot dog cart outside Madison Square Garden in New York City, is hugely popular, often drawing long lines of diners eager to try the restaurant’s burgers and concretes. When the first location debuted in Houston in 2016, employees predicted it would serve more than 2,000 customers a day.
Earlier this year, Shake Shack debuted a new tool to help lessen the hassle of waiting in the restaurant’s notorious lines. Diners can pre-order food for pickup on the Shake Shack app or at order.shakeshack.com. They can then use the new “Shack Track” feature to place an order and be notified when it is ready. Those orders can be picked up at walk-up pickup window.
The Woodlands Shake Shack will be open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
