The modern day “roadside” burger stand opened two other locations in the New Orleans area in 2019. The first Louisiana location opened at 3501 Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Metairie, and the second location recently opened inside the new terminal at the the Louis Armstrong International Airport.

Opening day festivities begin at 10:30 a.m., including a brass band and a Shack Second-line before doors open to the public at 11 a.m. The first 100 people in line when doors open at 11 a.m. will receive a custom Shake Shack tote filled with swag, the company announced in a release.

Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100 percent all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and griddled flat-top dogs, with no added hormones or antibiotics. The menu also features fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle-cut fries, craft beer, wine and more.
