Allow me to be my fat self for a moment, if you will. There is some pretty big news today regarding Lexington and one of the best burgers in America.
According to Eater Nashville, Lexington will open the first Shake Shack in Kentucky. The universally-praised burger joint will open at The Summit at Fritz Farm, the new $156 million, 60-acre development at Man O’War and Nicholasville Road. The development’s website confirms Shake Shack’s future location.
If you’re new to the Shake Shack name, go ahead and educate yourself. It is quietly building a global restaurant empire. Think In-N-Out, but with variety.
Shake Shack is a must for me every time I’m in New York. I can’t imagine how many times I will eat it once it comes to Lexington, but I plan to go ahead and move up a couple pant sizes in preparation for its arrival.
