After months of anticipation, Shackburgers will finally arrive in Kirkland this weekend. Shake Shack just announced that the chain’s outpost in the new mixed-use Kirkland Urban development will open Saturday, September 7. The 3,664 square-foot location at 300 Peter Kirk Lane features an outdoor patio, tabletops made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes, and chairs and booths designed using sustainable materials, according to the restaurant. And the menu, naturally, will feature the popular Angus beef burgers, hot dogs, concretes, and milkshakes Shake Shack is known for. Those who love free swag may want to get there early: The first 100 people in line when doors open at 11 a.m. will receive a custom Shake Shack Yeti tumbler.
This spot is one of 14 planned tenants for Kirkland Urban, which has more than 1 million square feet of space for offices, retail, and housing. Other confirmed food businesses include a QFC (which opened this summer), Dough Zone Dumpling House, Evergreens Salads, Caffe Ladro, and a new yet-to-be-announced restaurant from Heavy Restaurant Group, which owns Purple, Pablo y Pablo, Barrio, and more.
Shake Shack opened its first Seattle area restaurant in Denny Triangle almost a year ago. That spot still consistently draws long lines for its wildly successful fast food. But the expansion won’t stop on the eastside. The chain is also planning a U District outpost for 2020.
