Shake Shack, the popular burger, fries and shake shop from New York, is opening suburban locations in Schaumburg and Oak Brook.
Shake Shack delivers a modern spin on the roadside hamburger stand, dishing up all-natural Angus beef burgers, flat-top beef hot dogs, chicken sandwiches and crinkle-cut fries as well as shakes and its signature frozen custard concretes.
The eatery, expanding across the country, is opening a location at 1701 E. Golf Road, according to the village of Schaumburg. The village said it is opening in spring 2019 in the Woodfield Gatherings outlot development where Honeygrow, MOD Pizza and Naf Naf Grill are located.
Another location is also opening later this year at 1950 Spring Road, just east of Oakbrook Center.
The chain now has more than 180 locations in the U.S. and across the globe. Locally, three of the restaurants operate in Chicago along with a location in Skokie at Old Orchard shopping Center. Another restaurant is under construction on North Clark Street in Wrigleyville.
Beer and wine are served at the restaurant chain. The Skokie location serves a "selection of Midwestern brews," according to the company website.
Specialty shakes include festive holiday flavors such as Chocolate Peppermint, chocolate frozen custard blended with peppermint topped with whipped cream and chocolate peppermint candy crumbles; Christmas Cookie, sugar cookie frozen custard topped with whipped cream, crumbled shortbread and red and green sprinkles and White Mocha, white chocolate coffee frozen custard topped with whipped cream and white chocolate curls.
