In just over a week, Shake Shack will open its first Tennessee location on Thursday, August 23, at 11 a.m. The Shack will be situated on the corner of Hill Center Green Hills at 4031 Hillsboro Pike.

The first 100 people in line on opening day will receive a complimentary make-your-own bouquet from Amelia’s Flower Truck.

What's on the menu

Along with the Shake Shack's signature burgers, fries and shakes, the chain revealed it will serve a few "Nashville-exclusive" items like a cheeseburger topped with seasoned cracklins' from Nashville's own Peg Leg Porker, as well as frozen custard concretes made in collaboration with local purveyors:

  • Pie Oh My: Vanilla custard with a slice of Little Moskos seasonal pie
  • Caramel Bourbon Twist: Vanilla custard with Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co. Bourbon Nib Brittle, chocolate sprinkles and salted caramel sauce
  • Music City Mallow: Chocolate custard with marshmallow fluff, speculoos cookie crumbles and salted caramel sauce

What it will look like

The 4,000-square-foot space in Green Hills will have an outdoor patio and seating for more than 200 customers.

In keeping with the company's eco-friendly construction, the restaurant's arhictechure will feature tabletops made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes and booths crafted with lumber.
