After months of anticipation, Shake Shack’s coveted chicken sandwich is finally available at stores across the United States. What was previously only up for grabs at the chain’s Brooklyn locations is now landing on Shake Shack menus almost everywhere starting today, January 13th, 2016 (NYC’s Theaters District Shack, JFK airport shacks, and stadium Shacks will have to wait a little bit longer).

Shake Shack’s Chick’n Shack is what the fast-food restaurant calls a “modern twist on a classic,” featuring white meat chicken with a Southern-fried crust, shredded iceberg lettuce, pickles, and a buttermilk herb mayo all on a squishy Martin’s potato roll.chx


In a day and age where chicken sandwiches are dominating the fast-food market, you want to spend your money on a sandwich you know will deliver—and the Chick’n Shack sure as hell delivers. The chain’s Culinary Director Mark Rosati explains in a statement,

“It’s about providing a simple, pleasurable, uncomplicated experience, but with high-quality, responsibly sourced ingredients. It wasn’t until we found the chicken sandwich to be as flavorful as our ShackBurger® that we knew we’d crafted something special that had earned its place on the menu. Since we introduced the Chick’n Shack in Brooklyn, guests have been asking us to bring it to all Shacks, and we couldn’t be more excited to finally do so.”


So go ahead and treat yourself to something a little different for lunch this afternoon. If you’re in Manhattan, get smart and take a look at the live video feed of Shake Shack’s Madison Square Park location so you can avoid those treacherous lines.
