Coming soon to Old Pasadena is the Crack Shack. In what was an old firehouse and then most recently a recording studio. Is now being transformed into an eatery. Expected opening Fall 2018.
CEO Michael Rosen and celebrity-chef Richard Blais have translated their bold and brazen vision through a culmination of a meticulously prepared menu and our “crack spice” – a proprietary blend of spices that gives our fare a certain je ne sais ‘squawk’ for sumptuous delight.

Shake Shack Pasadena
The location of upcoming Shake Shack Pasadena was previously a Budget Car Rental location.
The location brings more options away form Old Pasadena and other concentrated areas of dining.
The footprint of the existing building is small and there is no existing kitchen, so it is a complete build out. Don’t expect this location to be opened until sometime in 2019.
