A second Shake Shack on the edge of Brackenridge Park is hoping to bring the burger joint’s reputation for a “cult-like” following closer to downtown.

“We have a fantastic burger and fantastic food,” said Drew Mitrakos, regional marketing manager.

The eatery at 3003 Broadway and East Mulberry Avenue opened in June. The first debuted in 2017 at 7427 San Pedro Ave.

What started as a hot-dog stand in Manhattan now spans the globe with more than 200 locations.

The burgers are made with 100 percent all-natural Angus beef. Neither the ground-beef patties nor the chicken contain any hormones or antibiotics.

“We just are super mindful about what we’re sourcing,” Mitrakos added.

Customers can choose from a variety of burgers, with a single or double patty. In addition to vegetarian options, the kitchen serves up chicken sandwiches or bites, and the hot dogs that started it all.

Diners can indulge in the Lockhart Burger, a cheeseburger topped with a grilled Kreuz Market jalapeño-cheese sausage link, pickles and ShackSauce — a “tangy” mayo.

“It is divine,” Mitrakos said.

 All burgers and sandwiches are served on potato buns from Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe Inc.

Shakes and concretes — dense frozen custard — are also on the menu. Concretes feature mix-ins from Bakery Lorraine, typically a macaron. Five percent of those sales benefit the San Antonio Food Bank.

“We do get to play our part in giving back, in a really cool way,” Mitrakos said.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
