According to Shake Shack, the new burger is “inspired by the many traditional U.S. roadside burger stands of yore that dot our highways.” The Roadside Shack is an Angus beef cheeseburger topped with caramelized onions simmered in beer and bacon.
“The beer and bacon caramelized onions bring out even more depth of flavor and juiciness to our delicious flat-top griddled burgers,” explains Mark Rosati, Culinary Director of Shake Shack. At this point, you’d be hard pressed to find a meat-eating, alcohol-imbibing American who doesn’t love bacon, beer, and burgers. Shake Shack sure knows what its customers want.
A single Roadside Shack will set you back $6.19, while a double costs $8.99. The burger is available starting today at all U.S. Shake Shack locations (excluding stadiums). No word on how long the burger will be available, so you’ve better get to Shake Shack asap.
You better believe the American burger stand-inspired patty has Danny Meyer’s seal of approval. And it turns out Rachel Ray is also a big fan.
Ray tried the Roadside Burger while hosting this year’s F&W SoBe Burger Bash. Hamburger America filmmaker (and 2015 Burger Bash judge) George Motz tells First We Feast, “Rachel Ray walked into the judges corral at Burger Bash and said, ‘Have you tried the freaking Shake Shack burger, oh my God.'”
