San Antonio got its first Shake Shack last week and local fans were lined up outside of the doors when the store officially opened at 11 a.m. on August 23, 2017. Patrons were treated to free Pie Oh My concretes on the restaurant’s opening day. Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers, cage-free chicken sandwiches, griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle-cut fries, craft beer and wine and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.

With a nod to our great state, the new San Antonio location will feature local brews from Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling, Pedernales Brewing Company, and Lone Star, plus a rotating seasonal brew from Alamo Brewing Company. Wine lovers can enjoy a glass of Federalist Cabernet and Simi Sauvignon Blanc.

Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan. In 2004, a permanent kiosk opened in the park and Shake Shack was born. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more.

Shake Shack pledges to give back to the San Antonio community by donating 5% of its of sales from its Pie Oh My concrete to the San Antonio Food Bank, whose mission is to fight hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education, and advocacy.
