Shake Shack adds BBQ — and an app

Shake Shack

If the lines at your favorite Shake Shack start getting extra long (as if they were not long enough already) you can blame it on the BBQ sauce.

Starting today, Shack Shack will be offer three new BBQ inspired items:

  • BBQ ShackMeister Burger ($6.39 Single / $9.19 Double): Cheeseburger topped with crispy ShackMeister Ale-marinated shallots and Shack BBQ sauce.
  • BBQ Chick’n Shack ($6.55): Crispy chicken breast with Shack BBQ sauce and pickles.
  • BBQ Bacon Cheese Fries ($4.69): Crinkle-cut fries topped with all-natural smoked Niman Ranch bacon, Shack BBQ Sauce and cheese sauce.

The new BBQ items will be available for a limited time at all U.S. locations (except airports, stadiums and ballparks).

“We’ve been working on our Shack BBQ sauce recipe for quite some time now and we couldn’t be more thrilled to finally share it with our fans!” said Mark Rosati, Culinary Director of Shake Shack. “Our Shack BBQ sauce takes inspiration from a few of our favorite regional BBQ styles, from the thick and rich tomato-based Kansas City style to the tangy South Carolina mustard style, and adds wonderful flavor to our new burger, chicken and fries.”

The additional BBQ items follow the recent roll-out of three new seasonal shakes: Mint Cookies & Cream (mint frozen custard blended with chocolate wafer cookie crumbles and topped with whipped cream), Mud Pie (marshmallow frozen custard blended with fudge and coffee, topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles) and Salted Vanilla Toffee (salted vanilla frozen custard blended with toffee and topped with whipped cream).
