Center City, PA

Our first Philadelphia-area Shack is located smack dab in the heart of Center City.  It’s just steps away from Philly’s beautiful and historic Rittenhouse Square. Brimming with “brotherly love,” the Center City Shack features reclaimed brick floors from old Pennsylvania steel mills, and wooden furniture and walls certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

Want Shack for your shindig? No sweat. For orders of 10 or more burgers, call or email by 10AM the day you need your order ([email protected]).

Shack Track & Field

Let it ride with Shack Track & Field, a free community fitness club powered by Shake Shack. Center City hosts a cycling group ride on the first Saturday of every month.

Beer here! Rides end with a free drink back at the Shack.

Hot tip: when you wear your performance tee to a ride, get a free cup or cone of frozen custard on us.
