Shake Shack Brings Burgers to South Lamar

Shake Shack got its start as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan, where it gained huge popularity and often had long lines wrapping around the park. In 2004, it went brick and mortar in the same park. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture anywhere it opens, Shake Shack welcomes people from all over the city, country and world who enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics.

Shake Shack dug their heels into Austin with their first-ever Shack in the Lone Star State. Located in Lamar Union at South Lamar and Treadwell, the South Lamar Shack features a living moss wall in homage to their roots in NYC’s Madison Square Park. In addition to all the classics, the menu includes ingredients from local favorites Kreuz Market, Kiskadee, Uchi and Uchiko.

The Lockhard Link Burger is a cheeseburger topped with griddled Kreuz Market jalapeño cheese sausage link, ShackSauce and pickles. The Uchi-koncrete features vanilla custard, Uchi & Uchiko miso hazelnut blonde, and huckleberry jam. Five percent of the sales from the Uchi-koncrete support Austin Pets Alive!, providing life-saving programs for Austin’s adoptable dogs and cats. Going one step further, Shake Shack even has a menu featuring treats for those with four feet. Get your pet a Pooch-ini or Bag O’ Bones during your visit!

The line can be long, but did you know there’s a trick to skipping it? If you’re ordering cold items, you can hop on the C-Line to skip the regular line. Take a pint of frozen custard to go!
