Shake Shack Confirms Its Next Washington Location: Pentagon City

Shackburgers and crinkle fries are headed to Arlington.

Great news for Arlington burger fans: Shake Shack confirms that they will open their next Washington location in the Pentagon City mall. ArlNow caught wind of the project earlier today from permit applications.

At this point the Shake Shack team has no further details on the project other than to say it’s official—no timeline yet. Permitting materials hint that the space will have an outdoor patio, and be part of the mall’s new wing, which is still undergoing construction.

The Arlington Shack will be the fifth location for the New York-based burger chain in Washington, including a fellow Virgina branch in Tysons Corner Center. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
