Burger lovers finally have a chance to taste what all the hype is about, as Shake Shack will open its first Arizona location this month.


Shake Shake will open the doors to its Scottsdale Fashion Square location at 11 a.m. on Feb. 26.


Two other locations are planned for Uptown Plaza in Phoenix and Kierland Commons although specific opening dates have not been announced.


So, what's the big deal? 


People stand in long lines for a Shake Shack burger, then post mouth-watering photos on social media. Maybe it’s the often bragged about 100% all-natural, antibiotic free Angus beef.  Or the gourmet toppings – Applewood smoked bacon, anyone? Or the sauce, described as spicy and sweet – and maybe with a hint of pickles. 


No matter how you stack your burger, Yelp reviewers give this chain high marks.


So many options:


Shake Shake also gets rave reviews on meatless Mondays, with a deep friend Portobello mushroom patty and cheese called the Schroom Burger. 

The burger joint uses crinkle cut fries, and fans rave about the cheese sauce. 

Scottsdale’s location will offer two unique flavors of custard: Dust Devil with peanut butter, and CamelShack with salted caramel and banana.

Oh, did we mention they will serve beer? 


They love their customers:


Shake Shake actually listens to customers. Last year the chain changed its fries – but after getting loaded with complaints, the company switched back to the original crinkle cut French fries.  


In addition to that, the Scottsdale location will have an outdoor patio with a fire pit and foosball.
