Burger fans rejoice: Shake Shack is coming to San Antonio. The restaurant will open in late 2017, reports the San Antonio Express-News.

According to the Texas Department of Licensing and Registration, the new Alamo City hot spot will be situated at 7427 San Pedro Ave., across from North Star Mall. Construction is expected to start in April and wrap up by August.

Shake Shack's all-natural burgers and quality custard have garnered the New York City-based chain a huge following. The company opened its first Texas outpost — in South Austin — in 2015. There are now two Shake Shacks in Austin, as well as one each in Dallas and Houston — with more in the works.

Details about the San Antonio outpost are sparse at this time, but other Shake Shack locations are known to serve city-specific items, like the Lockhart Link Burger (with Kreuz Market jalapeño cheese sausage) in Austin.
