Burger, hot dog, and frozen custard restaurant coming soon to Buckhead Atlanta.

Shake Shack in a press release Tuesday announced it will open its first Atlanta location Tuesday, September 30 in Buckhead Atlanta at 11 a.m.

The New York City-based quick service burger joint joins five retailers that opened at the upscale mixed-use development Thursday at Buckhead Atlanta’s “organic” grand opening celebration: Brunello Cucinelli, Canali, Etro, Hermès, and Theory.

Shake Shack, owned and operated by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) is a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100 percent all-natural Angus beef burgers, “griddled-crisp flat-top dogs,” fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer, wine, and more.

“With our deep culinary roots through USHG, over the years we’ve loved tasting and watching the incredible dining scene develop in Atlanta,” Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO, said in a press release Tuesday.

“Buckhead is such an exciting area of the city, and we hope this Shack will become a true community gathering spot. We look forward to having locals and visitors alike join us for a ShackBurger on our expansive rooftop dining terrace.”

The two-story Buckhead Shack features all the Shake Shack classics plus The Peachtree, a location-specific shake made with frozen custard, caramel, and peaches.
