Shake Shack, which opened to a massive response in West Hollywood earlier this year, is scheduled to open in Glendale across from the Americana at Brand this Friday, September 23. It’s the second official opening for the New York-based fast casual burger chain, and one of at least three more scheduled to open in Southern California in the next year or so (the others include Hollywood, Downtown, and Century City).

This burger shop will serve the same signature Roadside Double available in West Hollywood and will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. The same Southern California burger-inspired offerings will be on the menu: single or double smashed patty burgers with lettuce, tomatoes, sauce, and Martin’s potato roll. In addition, find the excellent fried chicken sandwich, Chicago-style hot dog, crinkle-cut fries, ice cream concretes, shakes (obviously), beer, and wine.

While this opening isn’t quite as massive as the one earlier this year, it’s still a meaningful get for Glendale, which for many years was dismissed as a blasé LA suburb, only to land some of the biggest concepts in town, starting with Din Tai Fung a few years ago to Eggslut, Mainland Poke, Philz Coffee, and Tsujita Ramen. One benefit of this Shake Shack: it’s officially the closest location to an In-N-Out Burger, which is open less than a five minute walk away on Brand Blvd. In case you want to try them side by side, hot and fresh, for the first time ever.
