Via an exclusive preview in Garden & Gun, Shake Shack has announced what local products will be featured on the menu once open in Nashville. A burger and two specialty frozen custards highlighting a few local Music City local products will be on the menu when the Green Hills location opens later this month. Though now a massive, international chain, Shake Shack always keeps a neighborhood vibe by working with some local ingredients at each store.
Fans of Peg Leg Porker will be excited to see the “The Crackle Shack” on the menu. The cheeseburger comes topped with crunchy Peg Leg Porker seasoned cracklins and slathered in ShackSauce. A variation of this burger first premiered at the Aspen Wine & Food Festival three years ago, but Shake Shack collaborated with Peg Leg’s Carey Bringle to give it some Music City flavor with his own line of pork rinds.
One of the Nashville-exclusive sweet offerings will be the Caramel Bourbon Twist, which is vanilla custard swirled with Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co.’s Bourbon Nib Brittle. The bourbon brittle also incorporated Corsair Distillery, as it’s made from aging cacao beans in their old bourbon barrels.
The other custard will be the Pie Oh My — vanilla swirled with a slice of local bakery Little Mosko’s seasonal pie.
All of these features are, of course, in addition to their classics, made with all natural Angus beef, flat-top Vienna beef hot dogs, and natural cage-free chicken.
Danny Meyer’s burger joint that originated in NYC’s Madison Square Park as a hot dog cart has a cult following and locations worldwide. They’re now famous for their burgers and shakes, and people turn out in droves to line up for their meals. The Green Hills location is targeted to open later this month.
