If you’re anything like me and daydream of crinkle-cut fries and peanut butter shakes, it’s your lucky day. Shake Shack, the critically acclaimed New York City burger joint, is set to open up in St. Louis’ Central West End in 2017.

Owner Danny Meyer is no stranger to St. Louis, since he grew up right on the border of Ladue and Clayton – and he’s finally bringing the business back home. His successful menu features burgers topped with signature ShackSauce and concretes made with homemade frozen custard, so it will be interesting to see how Shake Shack stacks up to St. Louis classics like Ted Drewes.
