It’s a big win for Nets fans: the beloved burger-and-fries joint Shake Shack announced Tuesday that it will open its second Brooklyn location — this one right across the street from the Barclays Center.
Restaurateur Danny Meyer’s burger joint, famous for its all-natural succulent patties and creamy milkshakes, will replace the homeware store Furniture House in a prime Flatbush Avenue location between Dean and Pacific streets, steps from the 18,000-seat entertainment mecca’s main entrance.
Shake Shack, which opened its first borough location in 2011 at the head of the Fulton Mall, is joining a wave of patty parlors including 67 Burger and Burger Bistro that sprouted up within a half-mile of the home of the Nets in the two years.
But Shake Shack honchos aren’t worried about getting fried by the competition.
“New York City is our hometown, and the Shack will be the place where New Yorkers can come together to celebrate the best of Brooklyn’s thriving culture, sports and entertainment,” said Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti in a statement.
Brooklyn burger lovers are ecstatic that the borough is getting a second dose of the much-loved fast food spot.
“I’m so excited! I’m going to be there for breakfast, lunch, and dinner,” said Shake Shack fan Iris Arcala of Park Slope while she waited for her meal — a “ShackBurger” with cheese fries — at the Fulton Mall location.
