Shake Shack, the super popular burger chain with a huge presence in the Northeast, will open at the Midtown Tampa development. The sign is officially up at its location and promises to serve up loads of delicious frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, milkshakes, and those beloved burgers. The owners have announced that the popular fast food hub will open on Monday, June 7.

The Midtown Tampa Shack will open Monday, June 7, with the operating hours of 11AM – 9PM Sunday through Thursday and 11AM – 10PM Friday and Saturday. The Shack will offer guests both indoor and outdoor dining options as the Shack features a spacious outdoor patio.

“We are so excited to finally open our doors in Midtown Tampa,” said Andrew McCaughan, Chief Development Officer at Shake Shack. “Years in the making, our debut Tampa location will be one of the development’s first restaurants to open, featuring a big, welcoming patio and beautifully designed interiors. We can’t wait to expand our footprint in Central Florida and finally bring our classics to the greater Tampa Bay community!”

Time to devour crinkle cut fries

Why is this blogger so excited about Shake Shack arriving in the city of Tampa? It’s just so damn good. It’s the fast-casual restaurant of my dreams. The crinkle cut fries are perfectly crisp, the loaded mushroom burger and the regular veggie burger are supremely filling. 

If you want a breezy in-and-out dining experience, then Shake Shack is a truly clutch option. Residents and visitors of Midtown will assuredly enjoy the convenience having this concept on site. Shake Shack even offers hearty loaded hot dogs, big fried chicken sandwiches, and a litany of milkshakes to satiate your sweet tooth. 

Shake Shack joins an impressive roster

Once open, Shake Shack will join anticipated developments such as Sal Y MarREI Co-Op and Whole Foods.

Other planned retail and dining options in Midtown Tampa include a Whole Foods Market, an Oprah-backed True Food Kitchen.

Welcome to the city within a city

Midtown Tampa is described as a new urban district at the center of I-275 and Dale Mabry. Midtown sits on 22 acres with 1.8 million square feet dedicated to retail, residential, 3 Class A office buildings, entertainment, and hospitality. 

It’s a city within a city, and we’re just here waiting to move in. Plans for the space also include Midtown Commons, a 3-acre Midtown Lake with a running trail surrounding it, and an off-leash dog park.
