After checking out the new Pinkberry yesterday, I peeked inside the new Shake Shack located directly across Connecticut Ave (technically at the corner of 18th and Jefferson). Anyway, the space is super close to opening and one of the managers I spoke with is anticipating an opening around the week of May 16th. Stay tuned.

    Now we just need an In-N-Out and life will be complete.

        Shake Shack? Yes, indeed.

    • Anon

      In-N-Out is disgusting.

  • jch

    and Chik filet around there… don’t like driving to one.

    • Anony

      Isn’t there one on GW’s campus?

      • jch

        Consider my mind blown !

        And AU

        There is one at GW, but it’s not remotely as good as the real Chick Fil-a’s. The food spends too much time under heatlamps and they only have a limited menu. Also, it’s only open when class is in session.

    • Arthur E.

      There’s one in the Ballston mall, about a block from the Metro.

      Oh the battle of Chik-Fil-A.

      So good, and yet so skerry in their christianity… it boggles my head whether I choose chicken or my principles.

      • chicken good

        bring your bible! love their spicy chicken sammy!

        The McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich is basically a Chick-Fil-A sandwich, but without the conservative-Christian aspect. And you can get it on Sundays!

        • Kalia

          but not the waffle fries!

  • MikeinDC

    What are “concretes”?

    • Kim

      Similar to a Blizzard from Dairy Queen. Custard mixed in with candy, fruit, etc.

      • MikeinDC

        Thank you. i’ll take 2, plz.

        • Kim

          You’re welcome. And they are delicious!

  • Rukasu

    Walked by today and saw a manager(?) having people filling out applications outside

    Our long citywide nightmare is about to end – we can finally get a hamburger!!!

    • PG

      You beat me to it. I was going to post that now there is finally a place to get a burger in this city!

  • Paul

    I read a little while back that Shake Shack was opening inside of Nationals Stadium as well. Has that happened yet? If so, is the quality on par with the NYC locations?

  • I am super pumped. Yes, we are inundated with burgers, but I think these are better than any of the options in DC proper. Soooo tasty. Although i don’t love the fries, alas. I am sure it will be mobbed from day one.

  • Prince Of Petworth

    May 17th opening confirmed!

  • IHeartShaw

    I love Shake Shack, used to be totally worth the trip to NYC… All DC needs is In-N-Out and Culver’s to be complete!
