Without any promotion, announcement from the parent company, or even its new host at McCarran International Airport, all signs point to the sixth Shake Shack expansion in Las Vegas making its debut within days.
Moving into Terminal 1 and filling an impossible-to-miss 4,875-square-foot space inside the rotunda leading to A and B Gates, the interior furniture is in place, neon signage spelling out “burgs, burgs, burgs” is lit, the kitchen is cooking, and the new staff is in the final stages of their onsite training.
Early plans for the counter-service restaurant projected a maximum occupancy of 229 inside the open space, featuring the same seating found at other valley locations and taking full advantage of the rotunda’s huge arched windows and views of the airport’s planes and runways.
First revealed back in April and completed in rapid time, future opening hours, or possible exclusive menu items have not been shared.
Since its local arrival at the Strip’s New York-New York resort in 2014, the home of Shack burgers, crinkle-cut fries, and frozen custard has expanded to Henderson, Downtown Summerlin, T-Mobile Arena, and the Las Vegas Premium Outlets North.
