Shake Shack Indianapolis: Restaurant's new location to open this weekend

·1 min read

We can all stop looking like fools.

After months of passersby thinking it open, the downtown Shake Shack will finally start serving this weekend, the company told IndyStar.

The restaurant at 231 N. Pennsylvania St. opens Sunday with classic burgers; chicken sandwiches; crinkle cut fries; split and griddled hotdogs and hand-spun shakes.

Guests there can also partake of Shack wine, Shackmeister Ale, local brews from Sun King Brewery and seasonal lemonades — pomegranate yuzu, apple ciderade and a cranberry citrus punch are currently on the menu.

The new store, near the entrance to the Mass Ave. restaurant and entertainment district and announced in October 2020, had appeared close to opening from the exterior for months, with signage in place and lights on; and this week has been training employees.

The downtown location, on the street level of The Ardmore apartment, features patio dining and an exterior walk-up window, from which guests who pre-order via the Shack app can pick up their food.

The New York-based, Steak ‘n Shake-inspired burger brand opened its first Indianapolis area restaurant in April with a Fishers location, then opened a store with its own dining room seating at The Fashion Mall at Keystone in October.

Another Shake Shack project, a licensed store at the Indianapolis International Airport along Concourse B and accessible only to passengers, was to open in summer 2020.

The downtown Shake Shack will operate from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Shake Shack will donate a dollar for every burger sold on opening day to Wheeler Mission.
