Shake Shack Heads To DC

Shack Shack burgers ... they look excited to visit DC.

While I was standing in one of DC's longest lines (love ya, DMV!), news broke that the cause of one of Manhattan's longest lines is heading our way: Danny Meyer's Shake Shack. Yay, lines!

The juicy rumor of Shake Shack's DC expansion has been floating around food lover circles all summer. Serious Eats reported today that the burger and shake restaurant announced its official plans to open at 1216 18th St. NW, formerly a Fuddrucker's, sometime in the first half of 2011.

Will you queue up for griddled burgers and frozen custard?

Shake shack is a solid fast food burger. If there is a 20 minute line, it is not really fast food. Five Guys with no line wins every time.

OOhhh. Thanks for the update! I am interested to see how Shake Shack stands up to some of the other "fast" quality burger joints that have been cropping up around here.

The Burger invasion continues (though I personally think there are too many now).

DESPERADOES BURGERS & BAR opened yesterday where POLLY's on U St. used to be.

Good point, Olesh. When is fast not fast ...

And Erik, there are so many more on the way! I agree we are swimming in ground beef these days. Still to come: Go Burger from BLT brand, Flip Burger from Richard Blais, the Korean Kraze Burger... oof.
