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.

Shake Shack Pasadena @626food

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.
