Fans of crinkle fries, time to freak out: Shake Shack opens its sixth Washington location in Pentagon City on Wednesday at 11 am. Like the other Virginia branch in Tysons Corner, the burger joint will be located in a mall, the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City.

Diners can expect the same menu of favorites like hamburgers and crispy chicken sandwiches, as well as one item that’s exclusive to the new shop: the “Potomac PB” concrete, made with vanilla frozen custard, peanut butter sauce, and chocolate chip cookie crumbles from DC’s Baked & Wired. A portion of sales from the dessert will go toward The 296 Project, an Arlington nonprofit that provides free art therapy to active service members and veterans.
