Start loosening those belts: Shake Shack has announced that its first San Antonio location will open at the end of August.

Park North Shopping Center can expect major traffic when the iconic burger joint officially opens its doors later this month. An exact date has not yet been announced.

Shake Shack's all-natural burgers and quality custard have garnered the New York-based chain a huge cult following. The San Antonio outpost will be serving up creations specific to Alamo City, in addition to the standard favorites.

On the menu you'll find Texas-exclusive items such as the Lockhart Link Burger (a burger with Kreuz Market jalapeño cheese sausage), the Peanut Butter Park (vanilla custard with peanut butter sauce and a Bird Bakery cookie), and Pie Oh My (vanilla custard with The Granary 'Cue & Brew buttermilk chess pie). Five percent of sales from the Pie Oh My will go to the San Antonio Food Bank.

Alamo City influence has seeped into the beverage selection as well. Shake Shack customers can order a cold brew from local alcohol connoisseurs such as Alamo Brewing Company, Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling, and Pedernales Brewing Company.

This is the seventh Shake Shack location in Texas behind spots in Austin, Dallas, and Houston. Look for San Antonio's Shake Shack at 7427 San Pedro Ave. this month.
