Shake Shack, described as a "modern day 'roadside' burger stand," serves a menu of burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, fries, and custard-based shakes and concretes. The restaurant also offers beer and wine, including local brews from Grand Canyon Brewing Company, SanTan Brewing Company, and Phoenix Ale Brewery.
The Uptown location will also offer three Arizona-exclusive desserts including the Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunchcrete (chocolate custard, peanut butter sauce, chocolate toffee, and chocolate sprinkles), the CamelShack (vanilla custard, salted caramel sauce, and a slice of banana cream pie from local purveyor The Bakery Phx), and the ‘Mallow Monsoon (chocolate and vanilla custard, marshmallow sauce, chocolate truffle cookie dough, and crumbled sugar cone cookie).
